Lifestyle-wise, they involve reducing or eliminating your intake of alcohol and/or caffeine (especially later in the evening), exercising daily, avoid working/thinking about heavier matters late into the evening, and incorporating relaxation techniques such as Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation into your life.
