First, make a habit of writing down your day's goals each morning -- then cross them off as you accomplish them. Being aware of how much you actually get done each day eases nighttime anxiety, and that helps at least one in five women sleep more soundly, say Yale researchers. Next, keep a notepad and pen beside your bed so on nights when you're bug-eyed, spend 10 minutes quickly scribbling down all of your worries and troubles. It sounds like a real sleep-stealer, yet this brief bout of bedtime venting helps women fall asleep 30 percent faster, say UCLA researchers. Turns out getting what's troubling you down on paper kick-starts production of dopamine, a calming hormone that dials down feelings of stress, edginess and restlessness.
