Behavior modifying: One place to start is practicing good sleep hygiene. Keep your sleep pattern consistently structured, avoid napping, use bed only for sleep or intimacy, and avoid lying in bed long periods without sleeping. If falling asleep is troublesome because of trouble turning off your thoughts, relaxation and imagery techniques are often helpful. For more help with these make an appointment with a therapist.

Sleep disorder: There is excessive day time sleepiness. There is probably an underlying sleep problem. A sleep conversation with a sleep specialist can be useful. And possibly a sleep study will be helpful to know more. We spend one third of our life during sleep and it is generally useful to know more about the sleep pattern.
