"I" is for Insomnia

If you wake up many times during the night, if you wake up early and are unable to get back to sleep, or if you wake up tired, then you may be among the over-60 age group which suffers from the most common sleep disorder, insomnia.

Insomnia can strike from a variety of causes.  Help yourself by developing proper bedtime habits.

Consider observing a regular schedule during the day, one which includes exercise.
Follow a bedtime routine.
Make your bedroom a comfortable sleeping environment.
Stay away from caffeine and alcohol.
Drink less in the evening.

And sleep like a baby.

How cute is that baby! It's doing the child's pose from yoga! (hmmm...maybe that's where it got its name!)
