Health Tip: Get More Restful Sleep
(HealthDay News) -- Sleep disturbances affect virtually everyone at some point, leaving sufferers tired and groggy the day after.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests these tips to help people sleep better:
Make sure your bedroom is kept cool. For women in particular, do so during menstruation, when your body temperature tends to rise.
Relax with a warm bath or shower before bed.
Avoid nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and large meals in the hours before bed.
Keep your room quiet, or use a white noise machine to block out disrupting noise.
Expose yourself to bright light during the day, but keep your room dark at night.
Stick to a consistent bedtime and waking schedule.
