Sleep Well — Feel Better

We haven't done a clinical trial yet about an apple a day keeping the doctor away, but we know that a little sleep can go along way. Everyone benefits from a good night's sleep, but it's essential for those with PH. Check out the tips below to help you get your Zzzzs. Maintain good sleep hygiene (which means habits).
  • Stick to a regular schedule during the day. Try to wake up and go to bed at the same time each day.    
  • Resist the urge to sleep in even if you didn't sleep well the night before.
  • Don't exercise within three hours of going to bed.
  • Try not to nap. If you're really sleepy, only take one nap and do it before 3:00 p.m.
  • Create a bedtime routine you can go through for about 30 minutes before going to bed, such as reading, listening to music, etc.
