The most common recommendation is to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. This should be a good starting point.

2. Sleep well (minimum 7 hours a day)

So if you have sleeping problems, you should address this. Regular exercise can help with this. Avoid caffeine or stimulants beyond the mid-afternoon. Certain herbal teas, such as chamomile and skullcap can also help with sleep.
