Step 3: Pick Up a New Mid-Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

Ditch the soda, candy and energy drinks. Instead, opt for a shot of the phenomenal super food: wheatgrass. It’s full of antioxidants, stimulates metabolism and alkalinizes the body. Get a shot at your local health food store or juice bar for a few dollars or, if that’s not an option, purchase wheatgrass in supplement form or powder.

If you must have coffee, try a combination consisting of half coffee/half low-fat milk. It contains caffeine like a normal cup of coffee and the protein in milk helps keep blood sugar levels stable.

Step 4: Set the Stage for Sleep

Perhaps you’ve already done the basics: removed the TV from your bedroom, set a regular bedtime, and banned cell phones and other electronics from your nightstand. But here are some additional steps to help your body wind down, fall asleep and stay asleep.

  1. Listen to soothing music for 45 minutes before going to bed. Research indicates this helps you fall asleep faster and recall more vivid dreams, an indication of deep, restful sleep.
  2. Turn your alarm clock away from you. Watching the clock keeps the brain stimulated, making it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  3. Use a night light in the bathroom. This prohibits turning lights on during the night which in turn activates the brain, telling it to wake up.
