Too little sleep affects our work, our activities, even our sex lives. These tips from WebMD can help you sleep like a baby at night.But excess of it also is equally harmful.
It's Sleep Week!
Don't build up a sleep debt. Ongoing sleep deprivation can impair you as much as a six-pack of beer.
Power Your Day
Take a nap. A 40-minute snooze in the middle of a work day can pump up your energy.
Sleep safe during pregnancy. Lying on your left side gives you and your baby the best blood flow.
The Better Sleep Diet
Don't gorge before bed. Good shut-eye foods: milk, tuna, eggs, and peaches.
Cue your body that it's time for sleep with a relaxing ritual. Try a hot bath, aromatherapy, or meditation.
Room for Sleep
Make your bedroom a sleep haven. Keep temperatures moderate, use blinds or shades for blocking light, and remove the laptop or TV.
Tired People Eat More
Cut 6% of your daily calorie intake by sleeping eight hours a night instead of seven.
Restrict smoking before bedtime. Cigarettes wake you up just like caffeine. Better yet, quit.
A wedge pillow can keep your head elevated and bring sweet relief from nighttime heartburn.
Take a Bed Break
Get out of bed if you can't sleep -don't stare at the clock. Read or watch TV until you feel tired.
A bottle of wine may conk you out, but your sleep won't be restful. Finish imbibing three hours before bed for a satisfying snooze.
Guard Your Heart
Get a full 8 hours of sleep. Catching only 6 hours of sleep ups your risk of high blood pressure by 70%.
And sleep better at night. Make your next day's to-do list in the afternoon so worries don't creep into bed.
Talk Yourself to Sleep
Try talk therapy to fight insomnia. It gets better results than sleeping pills.
Boost Your Sex Drive
Take a nap. Tired people have lower libido. Want more sex? Get more sleep.
Sleep controls appetite hormones. Get to bed and start your diet.
Do Not Disturb
Put traveler's insomnia to rest. Pack a tiny battery-operated fan -- to create white noise.
Out Like a Light?
You may be overtired. Most people need 5 minutes or more to fall asleep.
Give Dad the Gift of Rest
Let Dad sleep in on Father's Day. On average, men get fewer than 7 hours a night.
Getting a good night's rest may reduce your long-term risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Find a Midnight Oasis
Bring romance and good sleep back to your bedroom. Clear out laundry, TV, and kids' toys.
Give Teens Some ZZZs
The sun's up but your teens aren't? Teens need nearly 10 hours of sleep every day.
Sleepy & Stuffy
No sleeping beauty wants a stuffy nose at bedtime. A saline nasal spray is an easy fix.
Nix Late Naps
No matter how tired, don't nap after 3 p.m. Late naps make it harder to fall asleep at night.
Avocados & Sleep
Can't sleep? Reach for an avocado. They contain tryptophan, a sleep-promoting substance.
Jump on It
Exercise early in the day, and you'll sleep better. Nix workouts too close to bedtime.
