1. Spray some lavender on your bedding, because it seriously relaxes your brain and body.
The smell of lavender actually lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, and increases the brain activity associated with sleep.
To make a simple lavender spray, combine two cups of water, two cups of vodka, and 15-20 drops of lavender oil in a spray bottle.
2. Set your thermostat somewhere between 65 and 67 degrees to help you truly chill out.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends keeping your room around 65 degrees. Most of us sleep better in cool environments, as warmer temperatures can leave us restless through the night.
