Ensure a Good Night's Sleep

"When I was in Beijing [in 2008], I used a Pilates technique called constructive rest before going to bed. You lie on the floor, knees bent and feet flat. Then you imagine your muscles filling up with water, then [visualize]] all the tension disappearing."
Natalie Coughlin, 29, swimmer; 11-time Olympic medalist

"I read Atlas Shrugged [before bed] sometimes. It puts me to sleep because it’s so long and monotonous. You can pass out and then pick it up, and they’re having the exact same 70-page conversation!"
Kayla Harrison, 22, judo player; ranked No.1 in the U.S. and No.4 in the world

"Before I go to sleep I jot down all my thoughts. It really clears your mind."
Nastia Liukin, 22, gymnast; five-time Olympic medalist
