I am extremely excited to join the Rise team and be a part of the next great health and athletic performance initiative to hit the industry.

Experts from the Sleep Foundation recommend setting the thermostat to about 65 degrees. That’s because you’re body naturally cools as you doze off and your internal thermometer stays low until dawn. Research indicates insomnia has been associated with elevated core body temperature.

Here are four practical tips for powering down properly so you can score big sales the following day.

1. Evaluate

Experts from the Sleep Foundation recommend setting the thermostat to about 65 degrees. That’s because you’re body naturally cools as you doze off and your internal thermometer stays low until dawn. Research indicates insomnia has been associated with elevated core body temperature.

2. Exercise

On a related note, there’s nothing like exercise to make you feel physically ready to sleep. Just don’t jump on the treadmill at 9 p.m. Not only will it make you hot –not an ideal temperature for resting– but it can take up to six hours to cool down.

A good work out can also make you more alert and kickstart your metabolism, better served up at the beginning of the day rather than just before you pull back the covers. Experts recommend hitting the gym or the trail in the afternoon (which can also quell cravings for snacks during the sloggy hours after lunch) and being consistent with the exercise routine. A recent study found that after four months of three 30-minute sessions a week, participants were sleeping at least 45 minutes more per night.

3. Eat

You know how drowsy you can feel after a big meal. You can skip the tryptophan-laden turkey dinner, though. The soporific chemical is also found in dairy (hello glass of warm milk), nuts, and bananas. Eating just a little bit before bedtime can help you sleep better. Conversely, pigging out on a fat burger and fries can disrupt your natural sleep cycles.
