Thank you. Time for our "Snooze solutions". Becky Worley is back. You're in character this morning but you got some high-tech ways. Imdonning pajamas to be a sleep warrior testing new technology to improve your sleep. Our lightning round of tech plus sleep apps, ready, set. You've got sleep issues, we've got solutions. Hack number one, track your bedtime. Sure, you can just write down what time you hit the sack each night or use a wearable like fitbits they log your sleep patterns automatically. The most common revelation bedtimes that are all over the map. To fall asleep faster go to bed at roughly the same time every night. Ah. If you're still struggling, hack number two. ? Rubber ducky ? Reporter: A hot bath before bed raises your body temperature. When you get out, your temp rapidly drops and that mimics what the body naturally does when it falls asleep. Next problem, you wake up and can't get back to sleep. If you don't know what's waking you, hack number three, sleepbot. A free app that records the noises tied to your wake-ups. Is that snoring? How about noise? Earplugs work for some but not others. So hack number four, white noise. And, yes, there's a $2 app for that called white noise. Genius.

Lighting so yellow lights at night and then in the morning, blue lights, these lights can be adjusted ilumi, they're called and can help to stimulate the circadian rhythm but one thing that a lot of people wake up because of is pain. So before you go to bed, a lot of doctors recommend -- this is why I have my jammies on. Stretch out your hamstrings because your hamstrings are what affects your lower back pain while sleeping. If you've used one of these roller, you can do that. Get on there, get those I.T. Bands all rolled out, right and that might help you to stay asleep all through the night. Very simple. I'm going right now. Good night. Good night. Thank you, Becky. Of course, the most traditional method of all, counting sheep. I think we have some sheep here. There we are. There's our sheep. What?
