FALSE - If you’re having trouble falling asleep or wake up during the night don’t stay in bed more than 20-30 minutes. Instead, get up, go to a different room (or different part of the bedroom), participate in a quiet activity and then return to bed when you feel sleepy. Do not turn on lights or sit in front of a bright TV or computer, this will stimulate your brain to wake up. Stay in a dark, quiet place. Do this as many times during the night as needed and maintain your regular awake time even if you have several awake periods during the night.
