The difficulty of separating a stressful work life from one’s life at home leads to problems with sleeping for many people, an issue which can easily become compounded by the additional stress of being tired and physically fatigued. Hoping to help people overcome this challenging cycle, a German professor in psychotherapy has recently recommended a series of actions for improving the chances of a good night’s sleep. The professor’s suggestions include changing into fresh clothes once home, engaging in a separating activity such as drawing blinds, and getting exercise during the day.
