“A good night’s sleep is directly tied to key factors such as reaction time, mental alertness, muscular recovery and converting what you’ve recently learned into memory. That’s why the science of slumber has become one of the hottest trends in the NFL: Teams are no longer leaving it to chance that their multimillion dollar investments will manage sleep cycles all on their own.”

Healthy Sleeping Routine Tips:
- Eat a light snack– containing a protein (eg, seeds, nuts, low-fat milk, hard-boiled eggs) and a complex carbohydrate (eg, whole grain cracker or toast, slices of fruit or vegetables) within 2 hours before bed.
- Take a warm bath or shower- within an hour before bedtime.
- Make it routine– Head to bed at the same time daily.
- Read something soothing– reassuring, or inspiring. Save the action/adventure stories, headline news, and murder mysteries for daytime reading.
- Manage your stress constructively– Practice mediation, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, prayer, counting your blessings, extending good will to others, or other relaxing stress management techniques.
- Keep a journal– Write down or record any worries, anger, irritations, or other negative perceptions. Get them out of your head, set them aside, and let them wait until tomorrow.
- Gratitude- Make notes about little kindnesses you have observed in others or offered to others. Did someone smile at you today? Ask how you were? Just noting small acts of kindness can help us feel better and more connected to other people. This helps us feel more positive and secure.
