The Roaring Twenties are right around the corner, and if you want to start this new decade off right, you’re going to need to be well-rested. To help you out, we’ve put together this list of 20 of the best bite-sized pieces of science-backed sleep advice that you can try out tonight.

1. Ditch the afternoon coffee.

With how long it stays in your system, it’s best to avoid caffeine after 2pm.

2. Keep your toes toasty warm.

Wearing socks to bed can help promote sleep. 

3. Don’t Netflix and Chill.

Ditch your screens (we know - the horror!) 1 hour before bedtime.

4. Keep the beverages at bay. 

Try not to consume too many liquids close to bedtime to avoid midnight bathroom runs. 

5. Keep the same bedtime every night. 

Your body loves consistency! 

6. Black out to keep the light out. 

Find yourself some blackout curtains—your body will thank you! 

7. Keep it cool.

60-68 degrees is the ideal sleeping temperature. Plus, you’ll save so much money on heat this winter! 

8. Work it out! 

Hitting the gym in the morning or afternoon gives your body a much needed boost and helps tire you out for bedtime. 

9. Snack smart.

Go ahead and grab some cherries, tomatoes, walnuts, olives, and milk. They all contain natural melatonin.

10. Your bed is for sleep and sex only.

Keep everything else outside of the bedroom, including TV, games, work, etc. 

11. Hop in the shower.

The hot water helps relax your muscles and puts your mind in bedtime mode.  

12. Your bedroom isn’t the place for bright colors.

Keep the colors of your walls, linens, and decor calming and neutral in color. 

13. Put down the nightcap.

Sorry! But that cocktail before bed is bound to disrupt your REM cycles. 

14. Essential oils, anyone?

Aromatherapy helps balance your mind, body and spirit. We recommend lavender, chamomile, ylang-ylang, and jasmine. 

15. Keep the peace.

Don’t overstimulate your brain right before bed. Save the dramatic shows, reads, and conversations for earlier in the evening. 

16. Bring the white noise.

Random noises interfere with sleep, but a white noise machine will help keep those disturbing sounds at bay. 

17. Skip the snooze button.

We know, this one is SO tough! But those extra five minutes can be doing more harm than good. 

18. No mess, no stress.

A messy bedroom is the last thing you see at night and the first thing you see in the morning. Cleaning your bedroom can be therapeutic. 

19. Sleep elevated.

Come on, you saw this one coming, right? Sleeping on an adjustable power base helps with snoring, acid reflux, and back aches.

20. Don’t sleep on your problems.

If you feel like you’re in serious trouble with your sleep, talk to a doctor ASAP. There’s no time like the present. 

Make 2020 the year that you begin sleeping better and living your fullest life. You won’t regret it!
