Health Tip: Sleep Soundly Away From Home

Tips for sleeping in an unfamiliar bed

(HealthDay News) -- It may be difficult to get a good night's sleep when you're away from home.

The National Sleep Foundation has suggestions to help make it easier:

  • Pack your own pillow.
  • Bring a white noise machine and a pair of ear plugs that block noise of at least 65 decibels.
  • Invest in a sleep mask to make sure bright light doesn't keep you awake.
  • Maintain the same bed and wake schedule as you do at home.
  • Don't overeat or drink too much alcohol.
