3 Ways to Help Protect Sleep and Brain Health
1. Find a healthy sleeping and waking rhythm.
This includes going to bed and getting up at the same time
each day, but also eating and exercising at the same time,
and not too close to bedtime.
2. Try getting just a little more sleep.
Some research suggests women have a biological need for
about 20 minutes more sleep each night than men do,
according to the National Sleep Foundation.
3. Struggling with hot flashes and night sweats?
Try lowering the temperature in your bedroom and wearing
moisture-wicking pajamas to stay more comfortable.
