Sleep When Your Body Is Tired
When you are well rested, and you have a clear head, you are better equipped to deal with things that occur in your life. Once again, listen to your body and its needs. Try to establish a clear sleeping schedule. Go to bed at the same time every night, and wake up at the same time every morning. This will establish a routine, and ultimately lead to you getting more rest.
