Ashley Hebert, the bachelorette, has enough stress to deal with as the remaining six guys battle for a hometown dateÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Is all of this traveling really a good idea? From California, Thailand, Hong Kong and now Taiwan...her internal clock is bound to be a little messed upÃ¢â‚¬”causing a lack of sleep.
Lack of sleep leads to problems completing a task, concentrating, making decisions and unsafe actionsÃ¢â‚¬”Not ideal when trying to pick a future husband.
Even though she may be running on fumes, the bachelorette can get more energy through morning workouts and skipping her nighttime cocktail. Exercise will help improve the quality of your sleepÃ¢â‚¬”if you time it right. Working out late in the day can actually leave you staring at the ceiling in bed, since it can take three to four hours for your body to cool itself afterward.
"Alcohol may help you fall asleep faster, but once your body begins to remove it from your system, it acts as a stimulant," says Donna Arand, Ph.D., clinical director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Kettering Medical Center in Kettering, Ohio. "Four or five hours after your last drink, you'll wake up, and it will be hard to fall back to sleep." With the right schedule, oh, and the right guy, the bachelorette's traveling heart will be sure to find love!
