As an aging Austin senior, you may find yourself sleepy in the middle of the day. You may even feel the strong desire to nap. Do not be concerned if this is the case.
This is not necessarily an indication that you need more sleep. You may just need to learn how to sleep better. Talk with your doctor to see if napping is a good option for you.2012-02_NurseCaregiverHallway_K5B5929-MD-RGB.jpg

The last tip is pretty simple - healthy exercise life, and avoid tobacco, caffeine, and alcohol. For more tips on better sleeping for Austin seniors, click here.
