WANT A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP?

Insomnia is a serious health hazard that afflicts 50% of all Americans, especially women. You don't have to take drugs to get that much needed good night's sleep. Try these simple tricks instead and you'll be in sweet dreamland shortly after your head hits the pillow:

  • Straighten up your bedroom. You'll reduce stress and sleep better. * Keep your bedroom cool. Snuggle under a blanket if you feel chilly.
  • An hour before you hit the sack, eat a slice of whole grain bread with peanut butter and a glass of milk to give yourself a dose of the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan.
  • Wear an eye mask to keep light from interrupting your brain's production of melatonin, a hormone that plays a key role in sleep.
  • Listen to soothing music. Try to match the tempo to the normal human heart rate of 60 to 80 beats per minute. Studies show that music makes you drowsy.
