Prep your body for deep sleep with a warm shower.

Lathering up in warm water isn’t just a remedy for stiff muscles.

Next time you are feeling tired but are restless and can’t fall asleep, take a quick, steamy shower and jump back into bed where it’s cooler.

Your brain will notice the change and decrease your body temperature, releasing oxytocin – yep, the love hormone – giving you that tranquil, drowsy feeling to help you relax and fall asleep.

For extra effect, use bath products with lavender oil. Studies show that smelling the herb helps you sleep soundly, giving you more energy the next morning.
