How to Sleep Better Instantly

Do you want to sleep 8hours a day after a long day at work but you hardly can do it. Here's how:

* Unplug an hour before bed. That includes the television, computer, cell phone, and any other glowing tech tools. Research shows that the brain misreads artificial light as daylight, so it doesn't release melatonin, a sleep-regulating chemical, which is normally triggered by darkness.
* Take a warm shower or bath. Your body temperature goes down when you get out, which makes you feel sleepy. That's because it mimics what occurs deep inside the body at night, when internal temperature drops to its lowest level.
* Meditate or pray for 10 minutes. Several studies show that it can help reduce anxiety, release negative thinking, and improve sleep. Sit quietly in a comfortable position and repeat a phrase you find relaxing, such as Keep letting go.
