Getting A Good Night's Sleep Without Pills

Here are several things you can do to get a good night's sleep:

1. Spray a little jasmine in the room. Researchers at Wheeling Jesuit University found the jasmine sleepers reported less anxiety upon waking and performed better in a morning test of cognition function.

2. Artificial light from even an alarm clock can interfere with sleep. Turn bright lights towards the wall or cover them with a cloth. Also invest in room darkening shades.

3. Listen to relaxing music for 45 minutes in bed. This increased the quantity and quality of sleep by 35%.

4. Do your brisk walking in the morning. In a study of women 50 to 75 this improved their ability to fall asleep at night by 75%. Evening exercisers had trouble falling asleep.
