Q:When I can’t fall asleep, should I stay in bed and keep trying or get up and do something?
A: It is important to prepare yourself for the resting period at night. Follow this simple regime:
Do not eat at least two hours prior to going to bed; in fact, your last meal should be no later than 7 PM,

Take a 15-minute relaxing (not vigorous) walk in the fresh air about one hour prior to going to bed. Try to
clear your daily calendar and not leave too many things unfinished, as these things tend to clutter the mind.
