If you have trouble sleeping one of the first steps to take is to keep a log of your bed times, what food you are eating before bed, and what activities you are doing before bed. When we have trouble sleeping we fall in to bad habits when it comes to food, drink, watching too much TV etc. By getting back on track with healthy eating can make a huge difference when it comes to insomnia.
A lack of sleep is nothing to worry about if it is the odd night now and again, but if you find that you are getting less and less sleep it may be time to take action. Insomnia is a very serious condition and it should not be taken lightly. Long-term sleep deprivation will lead to you feeling sluggish, unable to concentrate and can be dangerous if you work in a demanding job. Lack of sleep can also contribute to weight gain and can impact our immune system so it is imperative that we get at least 7-9 hours sleep per night.
