Set a definite sleep routine and follow it. Calm your nerves before you tuck yourself in – read, listen to music, meditate, or laze in an Epsom salt bath. Eat 3 hrs before your bedtime. Dim the lights 2 hrs before you sleep to set off antioxidant melatonin production. Switch off all electronic devices. Lower the room temperature (at least 70°F) overnight. Snooze your way to better health!
