Millions of Americans have reported experiencing insomnia at some point during their lives. Having difficulty falling asleep can be frustrating for most people, especially when you feel tired but are unable to drift off. However, instead of turning on Netflix or checking your emails in an effort to grow tired, consider these natural bedtime tips to help you go to sleep faster.
First, avoid consuming caffeine after 12 p.m. or having more than one alcoholic beverage before bed. Next, while it might be tempting to use your phone, avoid all electronic screens at least 30 minutes to an hour before you go to sleep.
The blue light these screens release has shown to suppress melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone in your body. Additionally, avoid taking naps during the day and try to exercise several times a week.
Should these methods not work, speak with your medical doctor about having a sleep study. Visit our website to browse our selection of sleep, stress and brain support supplements.
