Here are five simple things a woman can do to improve her sleep.

*Lighten up on late meals and avoid eating heavy foods right before going to bed

*Avoid caffeine, alcohol, nicotine four to six hours before bed time

*Make the bedroom more sleep friendly: dark curtains, reduce noise, comfortable temp

*Go to sleep when you’re truly tired and not because you think it’s time to go to sleep

*Creating a bedtime ritual of doing the same thing each night tells your body it’s time to wind down
