We all know the value of a good night’s sleep. We have all experienced the benefits. Medical research has extolled the virtue of good sleep for many years. So what’s the problem? The problem is that many people just cannot get a good night’s sleep and become chronically sleep deprived. Life stressors, bad environments, and mental and physical illness can throw a regular sleep routine into quite a tailspin. When this happens people often develop bad habits that lead to more and more difficulty with sleep. Fortunately there is something called sleep hygiene that can help you get back to a good sleep routine. Try to follow as many of these strategies as possible, and over time you will likely see your sleep improve.
