Turn your alram clock towards the wall:
Tiny luminous rays from a digital alarm clock can be enough to disrupt the sleep cycle even if you do not fully wake. The light turns off a “neural switch” in the brain, causing levels of a key sleep chemical to decline within minutes
Take snoring seriously:
Ten per cent of snorers have sleep apnea, a disorder which causes sufferers to stop breathing up to 300 times a night and significantly increases the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.Snoring occurs only in non-REM sleep.
How much sleep is enough?
Teenagers need as much sleep as small children (about 10 hrs) while those over 65 need the least of all (about six hours). For the average adult aged 25-55, eight hours is considered optimal.
Some studies suggest women need up to an hour’s extra sleep a night compared to men, and not getting it may be one reason women are much more susceptible to depression than men.

Imagine yourself in an ideal and relaxing place every night while you lay in bed, perhaps on a boat or an island. Blocking out street noise can help alleviate insomnia. Make sure your room is dark.
~Mom was right~
