In brief: Sleep Hygiene

Go to bed and get up at the same time.
Create a bedtime ritual -- warm showers, room should be on slightly cooler side; no tv in the bedroom; no caffeinated drinks; no heavy meals before bed, just light snack if hungry; practice relaxation, stress management.

In brief: Get up earlier . . .

You'll get sleepy earlier. According to sleep researchers, it's helpful to create a "sleep sanctuary.
" use your bedroom for sleep, intimacy, and restful activities. It's ok to read a book (old school--meaning not on an electronic device) or meditate. But it's best to banish all electronic devices (tv, smart phone, etc.). And, keep the room cool and very dark-avoid pinpoints of light from devices.
