Relax in the bath

Picture this: soap bubbles, luxurious lotions, soft loofahs and lots of rubber ducks.

What do you have?

Bath time!

Today, try taking a bath before you go to sleep.

Yes, it can be a shower, too.

Studies have shown that a night shower can help you get to sleep easier and faster – if you time it correctly.

The body’s natural temperature plays an important role in regulating your circadian rhythm, which tells the body when to start feeling tired.

During the day, body temperature naturally rises until the late afternoon, when it begins to fall.

Showering earlier in the evening gives your body a chance to cool off and can even trigger sleep, according to research.

So, wash your face, brush your teeth and grab your favorite rubber duck.
