Everyone knows that a good night’s sleep is important and that sleep is essential for a productive day. Waking up after eight hours of restful sleep is refreshing, and the whole day is generally better. However, millions of Americans are affected with sleep issues and problems. Many people have a hard time falling asleep and more have issues staying asleep. Issues with sleep can be categorized within two realms which are the mind and the body. If your day was very busy, you need to unwind before bed, it is that simple. If you had a stress filled day or if your next day is guaranteed to be hectic you must dissolve that residual stress before bed. If you eat poor quality processed food before bed you might be setting ourselves up for trouble falling asleep.
