Not getting enough sleep is a sure-fire way to ruin your day even before it has started. Unfortunately, restlessness, insomnia, and just plain being unable to fall asleep plague many of us almost every single night. In fact, I now sleep like a baby most nights, but I have always had a hard time sleeping. Ever since I’ve tried a few of these tips, I’ve been able to sleep much better:
1. Fall asleep to some noise
Humans didn’t evolve to sleep in the dead silence – they evolved to sleep with large families or even tribes in close vicinity. Having some background noise can actually help our minds relax. You can get a noise machine, an app for your phone, or (this helped my girlfriend tremendously) fall asleep to an audio-book. If you do the latter, try to stick to books you’ve read/heard before or books of movies you’ve watched.
