I've developed a way to break bad sleeping habits (specifically falling asleep on the couch glued to the "boob tube") - I work on preparing the body for traditional sleep ahead of time - I have found that putting as many articles that I can that I associate with active, wakeful night life away from sight early in the evening, and prepare the bed area for arrival (slippers and robe beside bed, bed clothes at the ready).......this has made a great difference!

I have horrible problems sleeping: I struggle to get six hours, and even those aren't quality. I wake tired and often in a bad mood. I've found that if I work out for at least 20 minutes before bed (about an hour to ninety minutes before), I sleep soundly and I wake rested and energized in the morning. Even sleeping pills couldn't do that for me!
If you have to hit the snooze button or more than once, you're likely not getting enough quality sleep. This leads to a number of unhealthly situations. Monitor and start to increase you hours of sleep and check to see if other issues affect your sleep.102
Anytime that a quality copy isn't necessary use "grayscale" and lower quality print settings, such as "draft" or "fast print".
These settings can usually be found under "Preferences" when you are ready to print. Use the pull-down menu to print rather than the printer icon on your toolbar and you'll be able to adjust your printing options as needed.
