Every night the conductor makes the call:“All aboard the Dreamland Express!”
Try as you might to catch the train, you don’t always make it. Or you do, but sometime during the night you fall off. And when that happens?
Let’s just say that ‘early to bed, early to rise’ no longer applies.
But take heart, my sleepless one! You are not alone! The Centers for Disease Control says about 70 million Americans have trouble catching the right amount of zzz’s. After all, we need 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Given the lives we lead, that’s hard to do even under ideal circumstances.
But we have a trick up our sleeves. A little something that’s proven to help you catch your 40 winks …
AN EVENING SOAK IN YOUR HOT TUB.
No – really! Punch your ticket to Sleepytown by soaking for 20 minutes or so, 45 minutes to an hour before bedtime. It won’t just help you relax, it will help prepare your body for a good night’s rest.
Soaking in your hot tub raises your body’s core temperature. Within about an hour, your body starts cooling down. This gives your brain the signal from the station house that it’s time for sleep.
Then, thanks to your hot tub time, the Dreamland Express leaves the station like a true express – non-stop until the destination (morning, of course). Translation: you fall asleep more quickly and settle into REM sleep faster, and a sound sleep is more likely to last all night long.
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
Are you ready to hitch your car to this train? All it takes is a little adjustment to your nighttime routine. And if you don’t have a hot tub yet – could there be a better reason to buy one? Just come see us. We’ll set you up so you can start sleeping like a baby again.
