May is ‘Better Sleep Month,’ and according to the National Sleep Foundation’s 2002 Sleep in America poll, 58 percent of adult Americans reported at least one symptom of insomnia in the past year.
For most individuals, catching an adequate amount of zzzzs can be difficult. Lack of sleep can affect a person’s mood, behavior, and day to day functioning. The National Sleep Foundation reports that adults benefit from seven to nine hours of sleep. Several factors can contribute to lack of sleep such as chronic sleep disorders, stress, lifestyle and not sticking to a schedule.
Moreover, lack of sleep can contribute to health problems. An important part of getting a good night sleep is establishing a bedtime routine. It’s important for individuals to figure out a bedtime schedule that correlates with lifestyle, and stick to it every night of the week – including weekends!
Additional tips to alleviate sleepless nights:
Avoid eating too late – Eating late can affect your sleep pattern. Instead, stop eating at least three hours prior to going to bed.
Create – The environment you sleep in is just as important as the amount of hours you get a night. Designate a room that has minimal lighting, and quiet sound to help with a relaxing and comfortable environment. Furthermore, the right bed and pillows also make a difference.
Take a nice bath – A warm bath can help to relax the body and mind.
Listen – Soothing music like the sound of the ocean or other alternatives to help improve sleep quality and duration.
Another alternative to help improve sleepless nights is to drink a natural liquid sleep enhancer, such as Dream Water. A natural alternative to pills and over-the-counter sleeping aids. Dream water is a 2.5 ounce shot that has zero calories, and no preservatives. The dietary supplement is suggested to help you better relax, fall asleep, and wake up rejuvenated.
How does Dream Water work?
Dream Water has three natural active ingredients – GABA (to help relax), Melatonin (to help induce sleep), and 5-HTP (to help improve the quality of sleep). To work effectively, it is suggested to drink Dream Water a half hour before you want to go to sleep.
