  • Commit to helping your loved one get up a little earlier each day.

  • Wind down at the end of the day and look forward to sleep.

  • Avoid caffeine and switch to de-caffeinated if your loved one enjoys coffee.

  • Ensure your loved one is exposed to sunlight before mid-afternoon.

  • Exercise daily.

  • Eat main meal at midday.

  • Let your loved one take a nap—take one yourself—if it prevents them from being overtired.

  • Provide activities earlier in the day that can help your loved one get a restful sleep.

  • Avoid what is upsetting.
