Improving Sleep through the Lessons of “Groundhog Day” By Victoria S. Brkovich, MD

No one is actually expecting to re-live the same day over and over, as did Bill Murray’s character in the 1993 comedy Groundhog Day. Keeping the same schedule throughout all days of the week is likely to give you a better night’s rest, whichever day it is.  Avoid “breaking the cycle” in your approach to the weekend’s schedule.  Sticking to the same routine with respect to bedtimes and risings is a good path to follow for people of all ages.  With an established daily rhythm, you will be much less likely to feel the need to return to bed in the morning, regardless of a shadow sighting.
