If you can’t sleep? Skip the sleeping pill and TALK to your partner. You can even talk to a close friend on the phone. UCLA research found married couples reached the deepest restorative stages of sleep – and woke up better rested – when they took 5-minutes to talk before bed. Because when something’s bugging us, we can toss and turn all night. But talking helps ease our worries. Plus, discussing our feelings promotes bonding and boosts our mood. And it makes sense that if we go to bed happy, we’re more likely to wake up refreshed, compared to when we go to bed feeling bummed.
