(HealthDay News) -- Stress can keep you awake at night, even if you feel tired.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Practice yoga, meditation or deep breathing before bed, to help you feel more relaxed.
  • Avoid TV or computers before bed, These devices can stimulate your brain and make it more difficult to fall asleep.
  • Enjoy a soothing mug of chamomile tea.
  • Take a shower or bath.
  • Perform leg exercises, such as squats, to promote blood flow to the legs.
  • Count sheep or breathe deeply. Or imagine yourself already asleep.
