In brief: Sweet Dreams

Everyone deserves to be in a safe place to sleep.
Assuming you live in a safe neighborhood, get to know your neighbors, so you can have a neighborhood watch program. It may help to have a calming routine before bed knowing that you have friends and family close to call. Avoid late night television, nightly news, or caffeine, opting for reinforcing positive imagery of a good nights sleep.
