Health Tip: Slipping Back Into Sleep

(HealthDay News) -- Whether it's a child, a strange noise plain or insomnia that wakes you up at night, it can be difficult to get back to sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Practice progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing exercises.

  • Don't look at the clock, which may worsen your anxiety. Turn it away from you and close your eyes.

  • Think about the good things that happened to you that day. This helps calm your mind.

  • If you still can't sleep after 20 minutes, go to another room and do something relaxing. Skip the TV and phone, and listen to music or read a book.
