Healthy Sleep

Your sleeping patterns will change naturally as you get older, and you may not get as much sleep as you used to. But it’s important that you get enough sleep to enable you to function during the day.
Many older people suffer from insomnia – ongoing difficulties with getting to sleep and staying asleep long enough to feel refreshed the next morning – which can make you feel tired, low on energy and depressed.
Healthy Sleep

You can improve your sleeping patterns by:
• cutting down on daytime naps
• going to bed at the same time each night
• reducing the amount of caffeine you have during the day, perhaps by trying decaffeinated (decaf) tea and coffee
• getting up and walking around if you can’t get to sleep, or doing something for half an hour before going back to bed.
