Fall asleep faster
Next time you toss and turn while you worry about tomorrow's race, turn on the air conditioner and wear socks to bed. A recent study done in Switzerland found that warm feet increases the amount of heat lost through your hands and feet, which instantly makes you sleepy. A cool room magnifies this effect. You can also increase your chances of getting a good night's sleep by taking a warm bath before bed and laying a hot water bottle by your feet.
Washing down that sports bar
You need to drink at least 8 ounces of water or other non-alcoholic fluid with a sports bar, particularly during and after exercise when your body also needs to be rehydrated.
