In brief: Sleep hygiene

Good sleep critical for hectic life! to improve sleep: adhere to a set bedtime, no food or drink for 2-3 hrs before, bed for sleep or sex only, no tv or music (but maybe white noise machine), minimize or remove any lights including led from clock/alarm/phone, no daytime naps.
Get up if no sleep in 20 min and wait until sleepy.Wake up at same time.Plus, hectic life is "easier" if you love what you do!
