Sleep Stopper #1Problem:
Going directly from your desktop to your pillowtop
Solution:Create a routine that sets you up for snoozing
If you give your body cues that it's time for bed, you'll drift off faster once your head hits the pillow. "About 20 minutes before bedtime, step into a hot shower or bath," recommends Michael Breus, Ph.D., author of Beauty Sleep: Look Younger, Lose Weight and Feel Great Through Better Sleep. Warm water relieves muscle tension, and when you step out, the cool air dials down your inner thermostat, mimicking the way your body naturally cools itself during sleep.
