Warm Bath Your body temp dips about two hours before bedtime, a natural change that "triggers our brain for sleep onset." Soaking in a warm bath beforehand boosts your temperature temporarily, but results in a dramatic, rapid cool down after you get out that relaxes you & eases you into sleep. The resulting cooling of your body temperature will help lull you to sleep. Research shows that people who take a warm bath not only fall asleep more quickly, but lso report better quality of sleep
