Among the things Winner discussed on Monday was "Stress and Sleep." He had the following tips:

*** Avoid caffeine at night.

*** Avoid heavy meals right before bed.

*** Regular exercise, but not right before bed.

*** Keep your bedroom dark, comfortable and quiet - and only for sleep and sex.

*** Have a regular routine such as a warm bath and/or meditating.

*** If you worry a lot, try writing your concerns down.

"Don't give yourself a hard time if your thoughts go somewhere else," Winner said. "That's human. Bring it (the thoughts) back to the present."
