Dr. Merrell recommends getting eight hours of sleep at least three to four days a week. "Practice relaxation techniques before you go to bed to better achieve a quality, recuperative sleep," Dr. Merrell says. "If you have the all-too-common problem of waking up in the middle of the night, stay focused on the dream you just came out of, or if you lose that, then on your breathing, and you will be able to get back into sleep mode fairly quickly. Once you wake up and start thinking of problems, it is much harder to get back to sleep."
