Get up and move to another dark, quiet part of the house. If you can’t fall back asleep after 20 minutes, move to another spot. By staying in bed, you start to become frustrated at your inability to sleep, which causes ever more anxiety.

Turn on white noise. Find a cozy spot on the couch and turn on a fan or noise machine. Once you begin to feel sleepy, return to bed. This technique can help you avoid potentially habit-forming drugs.

If you still have trouble sleeping, see a doctor about a possible sleep disorder.
