It’s really, really important with sleep that people go to bed at the same time or within the same hour, get up within the same hour. If you’re lying in bed awake, then it helps to get up, do something soothing, and then continue trying to just get back to sleep when you go back to bed. And there are various ways that people can manage worry. Again, mindfulness is something that is very, very helpful in managing thoughts that might be disrupting sleep or worry.
