Read to Relax
According to Scrawny to Brawny’s Craig Weller, you could also benefit from about 15 minutes of light reading right before bedtime:
“Avoid intellectually stimulating fare and use this time for “candy” reading. It will reduce mental chatter and allow you to relax and let go of the day’s preoccupations.
“Candy” reading, by the way, is whatever you normally wouldn’t read.
So if you normally read non-fiction, try reading fiction. If you prefer to read fiction, try reading some history.”
Prep your Bed
Make sure that your bed is comfortable enough for you. Take note, though, that comfort is a subjective concept; what might be the perfect mattress for you is not sufficient enough for the other. It may take a bit of money and effort on your part to get a good mattress by visiting your local mattress discounters in Sacramento, but the payoff of having the best rest you can have each night could be well worth the effort. Always keep your comfort in mind, as well as the optimal biological functioning of your body while working to achieve quality sleep.
