Warm Your Body Temperature

Wind down from a long day and get better sleep by taking a bath about an hour and a half before going to bed. If you don’t have a bathtub, you could still reap the benefits by taking a 20 minute warm shower.

The science: A study showed that increasing body temperature through taking a warm bath before bedtime led to increased depth of sleep (Horne & Reid, 1985).  Getting out of the warm bath and into your cooler bedroom leads your body temperature to drop, which signals your body that it is time to rest.
