- 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.
