With all the holiday hubbub, many of us have trouble falling asleep this time of year. The fix: a chocolate treat!

Credit goes to chocolate’s magnesium, which tamps down the production of brain chemicals that keep you awake. OR LIGHT A CANDLE! Researchers report that gazing at a flame for five minutes releases calming brain waves, cutting risk of restless sleep in half. (Just snuff it before Zzzs.)
