Warm Up to Wind Down: How to Use Temperature to Improve Sleep!

A bubble bath is an amazing way to wind down after a long day, but a nice cup of hot herbal tea can have the same effect on our bodies. When our bodies drop in temperature, it triggers sleep signals. 

If you raise your body temperature with a mug of warm, decaffeinated tea or take a warm shower or bath, as our body temperature comes back down, it helps prepare us for sleep.
