French Women Don't Get Fat (and we kinda hate them for it).  Now, apparently  French Women Don't Get Facelifts, either.  Mireille Giuliano, the author of the best-selling books on the secrets of French women and their lifestyle shares her "sleep secrets," with Bedtime Network.  We're wondering if perhaps, "French Women Don't Get Insomnia," can be far behind!

Well along everyone know of that how long does cialis 20mg last found with ease in the Internet. In exclusive on our website it is full of it. But you forget and constantly you ask.

Mireille Giuliano's Bedtime Profile 

Bedtime Bling:

 None.

Nightly Nosh:

No food outside meals is a rule I grew up with and it still works for me, so dinner is it.  Before bed I enjoy herbal teas or a glass of hot water before hitting the hay.

Bedtime Book:

I love reading but not in bed.  I usually read after dinner but in a cozy armchair.

Sleep Secret:

A few which I mentioned in my latest book but for me at this stage the most important one is to create an environment conducive to sleep (dark, well-ventilated and cool...no central heating but a down blanket) and avoiding large, evening meals.  If I've had a super "excited" day, a few deep breaths and I'm gone.

Sleep Suit:

Suit is for daytime.  In bed, less is more.

Crash Pad:

My bedroom is my secret garden.  So is my little pillow filled with lavender from our Provence patch, my most precious gem.

Lights Out:

I've always been a night person, and since I've hit fifty, an early bird as well.  To rest/restore, I do need seven hours, so I try to go to bed before midnight and once or twice a week, an hour earlier as I don't rest during the day (so far).  Sometimes, if over-excited (which happens more often than not), I listen to Gregorian chant, classical music or soft jazz.
