An estimated 160 million Americans experience difficulty sleeping. We recommend creating a Zen bedroom by ensuring the noise is consistent. Earplugs or a sound conditioner might be in order. Shutting down all electronic devices before sleeping will also help ensure a good night’s rest.
Keeping a consistent sleep schedule reinforces the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Skip the nap, and develop a bedtime routine that includes a warm shower or bath. Stay away from caffeine for four to six hours before you go to sleep. Exercising during the day fosters sleep at night, but don’t exercise too close to bedtime.
