Are Your Thighs Burning? They Are Now

Just One Minute to a Healthier You

It's not only the 60 minutes you spend at the gym that keep you healthy; it's also the little things that can take a few seconds. This tip takes just a minute, but it can help you get a healthy eight hours of sleep.

I cannot stress enough the importance of getting enough sleep: It's good for your heart and it can help you lose weight. But if you find yourself worrying before bedtime, it may be hard to fall asleep. So, the next time your mind is racing while you're laying in bed, just take a moment to write down the worries that are on your mind. This could mean making a "to do" list or simply writing down a single worry you need to address tomorrow. Getting your concerns down on paper will help you clear your mind for sleep, since you'll know you've made a commitment to think about them later.

i used to never be able to sleep the night before i travel because i always thought i'd forget something, so i started keeping a notepad and pen by my bed so if i think of things to pack i can write them down. it definitely helps ease my mind and makes it way easier to fall asleep.
