FOLLOW  A  SLEEP SCHEDULE 
The recommended amount of sleep is typically 8 hours. In effort to try to get this every night, you should go to bed every day at the same time. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle. If you don’t fall asleep right away, try reading or listening to some music.
