Losing Sleep?

In an attempt to learn more about the how I can sleep better(In addition to an ethical living that negates the need to loose sleep;) ), I found some pointers i wantd to share with the hopefully zealous following this blog enjoys.

>Sleep only as much as you need to feel refreshed the next day.
>Get up at the same time, 7 days a week.
>Exercise regularly.
>Make sure your bedroom is comfortable and free of disturbing light and noise.
>Make sure that your bedroom is at a comfortable temperature during the night.
>Eat regular meals and do not go to bed hungry.
>Avoid excessive fluids in the evening. Cut down on caffeine products.
>Avoid alcohol, especially in the evening.
>Smoking may disturb sleep.
>Don't take your problems to bed.
>Train yourself to use the bedroom only for sleeping and sexual activity.
>Do not TRY to fall asleep.
>Put the clock under the bed or turn it so that you cannot see it.
>Avoid taking naps
