Health Tip: Get More Restful Sleep

Keep the bedroom cool
(HealthDay News) -- Sleep disturbances affect virtually everyone at some point, leaving sufferers tired and groggy the day after.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests these tips to help people sleep better:
Make sure your bedroom is kept cool. For women in particular, do so during menstruation, when your body temperature tends to rise. Relax with a warm bath or shower before bed. Avoid nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and large meals in the hours before bed. Keep your room quiet, or use a white noise machine to block out disrupting noise. Expose yourself to bright light during the day, but keep your room dark at night. Stick to a consistent bedtime and waking schedule.
