3 Secrets for Getting More Sleep

  1. Divvy up morning chores: Lisa Ziegler, 38, of Fresh Meadows, New York, says that she and her husband sneak in more bed time by alternating who takes their kids to school: "That extra hour I get some days makes a world of difference -- I'm not a grouchy mommy," she says.
  2. Plan ahead: Beth Coker, 47, of Medford, Oregon, does all the prep work she can at night, when she's most efficient -- packing lunches, ironing clothes, and laying them out for the next day, collecting her work papers -- so she can sleep in later.
  3. Change your routine: Eliana Agudelo, 32, of San Francisco, reports that she's been getting more sleep ever since she stopped bringing books to bed with her: "I'd always get hooked on a great novel and end up staying awake for half the night!" she says.
