The Best Time to Shower

A shower and a bath is a great way to unwind after a long day. Science now gives us the perfect time to take a shower before going to sleep.

According to Dianne Augelli, MD, of the Center for Sleep Medicine in New York, cooling down is a signal to our body that tells us to go to sleep. This means that it is better for us to wait a few minutes after a nice warm shower until we go to sleep.

As for the perfect numbers, sleep specialist Shelby Harris has got us covered. She suggests taking a 20-minute shower about 90 minutes before going to bed. For those 70 other minutes, make sure to turn off that screen. Read a book. Finish sudoku puzzle. Relax and unwind.
