Want To Sleep Better?

I have the solution.

Well, at least I have a link

What we do at night affects everything we do during the day — our ability to learn, our skills, our memory, stamina, health and safety. Most of all, it affects our mood: Chronic sleep disruption appears to be the single biggest trigger for depression.

Everyone has a troubled night sometimes, or even a run of them, which happens to the average person about once a year. It’s part of being human, subject to stress and worry. But it’s what we do in response to it, experts say, that determines whether we will wind up with chronic insomnia. It turns out that the best thing to do in response to a bout of sleeplessness is often, well… nothing at all.
