Not So Fast

Periods of high-stress and fasting don't mix.

Rule 1:
If you're anxious or not sleeping well, now is not the time to adopt an extreme regimen like alternate-day.

Rule 2:
Only shorten your eating periods or skip meals if it makes your life easier. If you don't have much appetite in the morning anyway, you're fine to delay.

Sleep Soundly

Taking a hot shower before bed helps you fall asleep 36 percent faster. The heat kickstarts your body’s natural cooling process, which sends signals that it’s time to sleep.

The study found that 104 to 109 degrees was the ideal water temp range, but researchers note that as long as you feel comfortably hot, you should get the benefits.
