There are a lot of different reasons why people suffer from sleep problems. Some have to do with the environment around you, such as an uncomfortable bed or noise or light in your bedroom. Other insomnia causes can be because of a medical condition, or your lifestyle. Today, we want to focus on what you can do to help sleep problems go away.
The biggest thing you can do to help sleep problems is stop using caffeine, or at least do not use it before going to bed. If you use it first thing in the morning you should be okay. On a related note, do not eat before going to bed. Not only can this promote fat storage, but when your food has not digested, this can lead to sleep problems.
Also, try to decompress your brain before heading off to bed. A busy mind will often make you wake up and not be able to go back to sleep.
Get into a routine, and stick to it. You don't want to be going to bed at a decent hour on weekdays, and then staying out late on weekends. Also, avoid sleeping in.
Another way to help sleep problems is to make sure your bedroom is optimized for sleep. Shut out any type of light that might be shining through. Make sure your bed is comfortable. And on a related note, make sure the bed is for sleep and sex only. Don't sit on your bed watching TV or read a book. You need to train your body that when you hit the bed, it is time to sleep.
