    Do you find yourself tossing and turning at night, fitfully trying to fall asleep only to get too few hours’ worth, or interrupted sleep all night long? If so you aren’t alone as the statistics show that 164 million adult Americans, or 68%, have a hard time falling asleep at least once a week. So, while you may just chalk it up to being normal, it doesn’t mean you have to accept it and go without sleep. There are a number of tips, tricks, and products that you can try that can help improve your quality of sleep and have you feeling rested.

    Here are three tips that can help get you started on a more successful night of sleep.

    Consider Sleep Support Supplements

    One area that is getting a lot of attention is sleep support supplements. These are medication; you don’t need a prescription, and they aren’t sleeping pills. Instead they are specially chosen and formulated supplements which are meant to support the body’s ability to sleep.

    Take for example the NeuroScience Supplements, which are a line of sleep support supplements that target neurotransmitter imbalances. These supplements use a combination of herbal ingredients as well as enzymatic cofactors. They can lead to longer and more restful sleeps where you aren’t tossing and turning all night long.

    Upgrade Your Pillow and Mattress

    Sometimes the solution is as simple as upgrading your pillow and mattress. If your body isn’t comfortable, your mattress isn’t supportive, you are getting head and neck aches, or you find your mattress just is too hot and doesn’t let the air circulate, you’re obviously not going to sleep well.

    Experts suggest that you replace your mattress every 7-10 years in order to ensure your body is supported properly. As for your pillow, it depends on the type you have, but typically they should be replaced every 1-2 years. Outside of this timeline it is suggested you listen to the cues your body is giving you. If you wake up stiff, sore, with aches and pains each and every morning then there’s a good chance your mattress and/or pillow has hit its full lifespan.

    Put Yourself on a Schedule

    Any parent will attest to just how important it is to put their children on a sleep and wake schedule, but did you know the same applies to adults? By putting yourself on a consistent routine for a set bedtime and wakeup time, you will be making it easier for your body to wind down and know when to sleep. Over time, by sticking to this schedule your brain will start to recognize your schedule, and you should find it much easier to wind down.

    It Doesn’t Stop There

    Of course, there are many other tips that can help you sleep better such as exercising during the day, exposing yourself to sunlight during the day, cutting out caffeine and alcohol too close to bedtime, and even meditating or taking a relaxing bath before bedtime. They key is to play around with different tips and tricks so you can start getting the rest your body needs.
