Sleeping in early recovery can be difficult. Test your sleep IQ and find out how much you really know about getting some good shut eye.

  1. 1 What is the BEST temperature for sleep

    temp-
    1. Between 60 and 67
    2. Between 68 and 75
    3. Colder than 60
    4. Hotter than 75
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Between 60 and 67

    Bundle-up! Grab some blankets! You need some good, cold air flowing for bedtime. No one likes waking up in the middle of the night all sweaty and overheated .

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    False

    What if you wake up in the middle of the night to roll over and--BOOM. There's a light in your face. Keep it dark and chilly and enjoy being a blanket burrito. 

  3. 3 You should drink_____ before bed

    cup
    1. Black Tea
    2. Green Tea
    3. White Tea
    4. Herbal Tea
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Herbal Tea

    Black, green, and white teas usually all have some level of caffeine in them. Herbal tea, like chamomile, can have calming effects. 

  4. 4 What should you do if you can’t fall asleep within 30 minutes of going to bed

    cant-sleep
    1. Get up and try to relax elsewhere
    2. Start playing on your phone
    3. Turn on your light and read
    4. Work out to tire yourself
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Get up and relax elsewhere

    Don't go for the phone, don't go for a walk, don't turn on a bright light. None of that will help you fall asleep. If you can't relax in bed, find someplace else to try to calm down. 

  5. 5 If you have a bad dream you should

    bad-dream
    1. Quick Google the meaning of it
    2. Turn on the lights and write it down 
    3. Make a very quick note in your sleep journal and then try to calm yourself
    4. Turn on your TV to distract yourself/ make yourself forget about it
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Jot it down and go back to sleep

    No lights! Googling the meaning or watching TV to help you calm down will just keep you up even longer. Do you keep a sleep log or a dream journal beside your bed? Scribble the details and try to get back to sleep.
