Health Tip: Making the Transition to Sleep

Suggestions for a better night's rest

(HealthDay News) -- It can be difficult to wind down from a busy day and prepare for sleep, as your body looks for cues that it's time to wind down.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Before bed, dim the lights. This will help your body release more of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.
  • Step away from smartphones, tablets and other electronics that can emit bright light.
  • Finish all stimulating activities well before bedtime.
  • Drop the thermostat to 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit at bedtime, which should help prepare you for sleep.
