Although it is true that a patient with such conditions cannot cure his ailment without enough and appropriate understanding of the disease, there is particular non-specific measures that will help assuage the gravity of the condition and may even help to completely correct the disorder. Practice of good sleep hygiene will help alleviate the condition.

  • Arising at the same time daily
  • Limiting daily in-bed time to the usual amount present before the sleep disturbance
  • Discontinuing CNS-acting drugs such as caffeine, nicotine alcohol and other stimulants unless otherwise advised by the physician
  • Avoiding daytime naps except when sleep chart shows they induce better night sleep
  • Establishing physical fitness by means of a graded program of vigorous exercise early in the day
  • Avoiding evening stimulation; substitute radio or relaxed reading for television
  • Avoiding large meals before bedtime
  • Practicing evening relaxation routines such as progressive muscle relaxation or meditation
