Ways to Get a Good Night Sleep

Studies show that having a good evening laugh like watching Bridesmaids or the Bachelor after dinner improves your sleep by making the brain release more of the sleep hormone melatonin. You don't have time for a movie and it's time for bed? You could do exercises to release the day's stress.  With laugh exercises breathe like you do when you laugh. As it turns out, by just mimicking the breathing motions of laughter you can relieve stress and improve your circulation, digestion and sleep.
Steps for laughing exercise:
  1. put your hands in front of your chest
  2. put your palms out, and as you push your palms forward twice giving a deep belly sounding HO each time
  3. then press your palms down twice saying HA each time
Now turn to your sweetie and notice they are looking at you and laughing and ask them to thank you for helping them fall asleep.
