Hot Baths Before Bed

Yup, that’s right! Contrary to popular belief taking a bath actually delays your body’s ability to shut down because it needs to cool down first! So skip the bath and take a quick shower!

Electronics

Checking your friends Facebook status’s can wait till the morning! And all electronics should be turned off at least 30 minutes before bed. Electronics keep stimulating the brain not allowing you to shut down.

Working Out

Make sure you’re working out at least 4 fours before going to bed because you might just get a boost of energy after exercising which won’t allow you to sleep!
