We all want a good night’s sleep, because it is essential for our well-being throughout the next day and in general. We buy expensive beds and make sure that our bedroom is completely dark before we go to sleep, but sometimes it is not enough. Suddenly you find yourself just lying there in your bed, completely awake and all you want to do is to fall asleep.
But why is it, that our expensive beds and cozy darkness is not enough? Well, there are a lot of things you can do, to make yourself fall asleep faster and harder. First and foremost, you need to turn off your smartphone and put it away. The blue light from the screen makes your eyes think that it is the break of dawn instead of night. Also, you need to turn down all technological activities before falling asleep.
Although there might be circumstances that interfere with your sleep, here are a few simple tricks to encourage better sleep.
1. Stay healthy and hydrated
As you might already know, it is important for our health to exercise and stay active every day. Many of us have a weekly routine of running, going to the gym or any other gymnastics. This is very important to maintain to make your body as healthy as you can.
Also, it is important to eat and drink well. Stay away from all the toxic sweets, nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol. These substances keep your body and mind awake and makes it difficult for you to fall asleep. You should also pay attention to the fact, that you should never go to bed on an empty stomach, but you should also avoid large meals within a couple of hours before bedtime.

A grown man or woman should have about 8 hours of sleep every night. This is the recommended amount for a healthy adult. The best way to make sure that you get 8 hours of sleep every night is to make a schedule. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Being consistent will give your body a healthy routine that will make it easier for you to fall asleep. If you need to stay awake a bit longer in the weekends, you should only expand you awake-time with one hour.
If you simply cannot fall asleep one night, there is something you can do. Give it a try for 20 minutes, and if you fail, get up and do something relaxing until you feel tired, before you go to bed again. Repeat this routine if you still cannot fall asleep after 20 minutes.
