Great Sleep

I am one of those who tosses and turns.  My husband's head hits the pillow and he is out like a light.  Not me.  I found these tips to make you sleep better. After all, we do want to get rid of those dark circles under our eyes, right?

  • Watch your afternoon drinks - stick to water, no caffeine
  • If you feel the need for a snack before bedtime, try cottage cheese and banana slices or milk and graham crackers.  Do not eat heavy after 6PM.
  • Alcohol tends to decrease deep sleep and increase arousals from sleep...like you will wake up in the middle of the night or about 2 AM...so lay off of the booze after a certain hour..Especially late at night..
  • A hot bath --tends to make it harder for you to doze off because it raises your body temperature
A dark room may make you sleep better.
