With the active lifestyles we all lead, one would expect us to fall asleep as soon as our head hits the pillow, right? But unfortunately, more often than not, sleep-related problems reign supreme instead of the former. Whether it's mild to severe insomnia, or restless sleep, there are certain things we're not doing right that are affecting the way we sleep. And not getting a good night's shut-eye can be a bummer for our body, and for our schedules the next day.
Also, resorting to supplements or sleep-regulating medication should only be one´s last resort. Following these easy rules during the day, though, should help you get a better night's sleep, so give them a try.
Figure out your circadian rhythm, and stick by it
Your circadian rhythm is the 24-hour cycle of all your bodily functions, including sleeping. Once you figure out what your bodily rhythm is like, when you start to feel tired, or when you're at your energetic best, it'll be easier for you to understand when you should sleep. And sleeping at the optimum time, when your body is ready for it's so called ‘shut-down', will ensure that you get maximum rest. Stick to this schedule in the long-run, though. That's the only way it'll really be effective.
