1. Drink up – but not too much.
While you probably shouldn’t be downing a caffeinated cuppa at night, plain ol’ water is a definite can-do. Indeed, re-hydration is a requisite in the evening, especially if you’re sleeping in a skin-desiccating air-conditioned room.
But here’s a top tip that’s worked wonders for me: Limit liquid intake about three hours or so before bedtime. That way, you sidestep the swelling of fluid retention when you wake up in the morning – plus you’ll sleep better too, because you won’t be getting up in the middle of the night to take a leak.
