One Small Health Hack: Turn Down For What?

Introducing new R18 health/fitness series, One Small Health Hack! In it, I’ll share one small tweak you can make to your existing nutrition or fitness regimen that will yield results if you stick with it.

He says to do a DIY “turndown” service, where at 7pm (his bedtime is 9:45pm, #goals), he closes the curtains in the bedroom, removes decorative pillows from the bed and pulls back the covers. I’d add some scintillating jazz music and maybe light a candle, to be blown out at my return.

Genius, no? And such a small thing to add into the mix.
