The key, or secret, is to experiment. What works for some might not work as well for others. It’s important to find the sleep strategies that work best for  you.

Falling asleep may seem like an impossible dream when you’re awake at 3 a.m., but good sleep is more under your control than you might think. Following healthy sleep habits can make the difference between restlessness and restful slumber. Researchers have identified a variety of practices and habits—known as “sleep hygiene"—that can help anyone maximize the hours they spend sleeping, even those whose sleep is affected by insomnia, jet lag, or shift work.

Sleep hygiene may sound unimaginative, but it just may be the best way to get the sleep you need in this 24/7 age.


1. The first thing to do is to turn off the computer including the television: It's best to do this about one hour before sleep. Too much light sends mixed signals to your sleep hormones (which kick in at about 9 or 10 P.M.) making it harder to fall asleep. Try reading a book or magazine.

2.What you eat and drink before bedtime: 
  Avoid drinking caffeinated  after 2 P.M. 
  Skip heavy meals or snacks too close to bedtime.

3. Make time for exercise: Have you heard that evening exercise disrupts sleep.But In working out is actually one of the best things you can do to promote sleep and it's okay to exercise any time, as long as it doesn't cut into sleep time. 

4. Establish an environment that's conducive to sleep: Make your bed and bedroom a place to relax. Too many distractions in the room make it easier to focus on your to-do list and harder to focus on sleep. Dress your bed with sheets that feel smooth and soft against your skin and pillows that support  your head and neck. Adjust the  temperature that's cool, but not too cold. 

5. Look for products that good for your sleep experience: Try the new Sleep Dress Performance Sleepwear and Lounge-wear that’s made from the same soft, super comfortable, moisture fabric that keeps cool. It's available in a variety of pieces, including tops, pants, and shorts for both men and women. Such as colors like Warm Milk, Honey and Lavender. With one of these fragrances (perfumes) surrounding you, you'll have no trouble for Pleasant dreams!
