Many of us have a difficult time getting a good night’s sleep but AARP.org had some great tips for helping us get a good night’s rest.  According to a survey by the National Sleep Foundation, those who make their bed nearly every day were more likely to report having a good night’s sleep.  Also, allergens can disrupt your sleep.  You should wash your sheets at least once a week and replace your pillows at least every two years and your mattress every ten years.  Enjoying a cup of chamomile tea at bedtime can also be soothing.  In a randomized, double blind study from the University of Michigan, those taking a chamomile extract twice a day fell asleep 16 minutes faster (AARP Bulletin Volume 62, Number 4, Page 13).
