News @ Noon: Tips For Getting The Elusive ‘Good Night’s Sleep’ [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD - Getting a good night's sleep can be a challenge for a lot of you.
Jenny Miller is a psychologist with St. Cloud Hospital Sleep Center. She says a growing problem are all those computer screens and bright lights that people are bringing to bed with them.
Miller says, in order to be well rested, get yourself into a consistent sleep schedule, don't take naps, and make sure you're sleeping in a cool, dark, quiet bedroom.
She says sleeping pills are not very effective.
However, Miller says melatonin does help a little bit in some cases like jet lag, or when you go from night shift to day shift. She says it's also effective for some people with epilepsy and autism.
November is National Sleep Comfort Month.
