10. Don't be a clock watcher
If you find yourself stirred awake and can't get back to sleep within 20 minutes, get up. Read a book or take a walk—it'll help lull you back into the snooze groove.
11. Anticipate sleep loss
If you know you have a bender of a weekend ahead of you, prepare for it. There's no such thing as stocking up on an empty sleep tank over the long-term (i.e., weeks or months of continued sleep deprivation), but it is possible to recover from short-term sleep loss, so clear your schedule ahead of time to hit the hay early for the following night or two.
