Bed time is approaching and you need to start powering down for the night which means it's time to really start relaxing. Bed time routines should be constant so your body starts adapting to them better each night.
We recommend that you try to go to bed the same time each night and wake up at the same time as well. If you have trouble sleeping, or at least falling asleep quickly, there are different natural remedies to help relax you so you can fall asleep faster.
Make sure to stick with your new routing night after night. Just like going to the gym, or dieting, results come only after following a routing day after day. If you are still experiencing difficulty sleeping after you have tried a variety of remedies, don't give up. Keep moving forward until you find something that works for you.
Many sleep experts say you should get an average of seven to eight hours of sleep each night but this is debatable. Others say it's not the amount of sleep, but the deepness of the sleep.
So what's something you can try to fall asleep faster? How about reading a book! Lying in bed with a book with only a dimmed light can do the trick. I know it does for me.
It's also worth noting that people who take naps during the day will have a harder time sleeping at night. If at all avoidable, fight through the sleepiness of the day and wait until bedtime to sleep.
It's worth repeating...Don't. Give. Up. Force your body into a daily/nightly routine so that when it's time to go to bed, you're not having to wrestle with yourself to fall asleep.
