Make Your Bedroom a Sanctuary
When choosing a healthy goal for the New Year, getting more rest seemed like a no-brainer. I'll be honest — I have major issues when it comes to sleep. Most nights I can't fall asleep earlier than midnight, and other nights when I actually do fall asleep at a decent hour, I wake up multiple times, tossing and turning. I also have evenings when I suddenly get motivated to check off everything on my to-do list at 10 p.m. (I can't be the only one who has cleaned the bathroom and baked cookies at an unfathomable hour, right?) In other words, my sleep routine is nonexistent.
Unsure where to start, I decided to reach out to sleep experts, hoping to identify the habits that are keeping me up. What I learned: even small changes can pay off in a big way. Here's how I plan to get more sleep in the coming months — and how you can, too.
