Eating heavy makes a person feel bloaty and stuffy. This may result in discomfort and eventually lack of sleep.

7. Try A Hot Shower Before Bed

Hot water baths help in a shift in body temperature and also calm the nerves. This aids in falling asleep faster.

This might sound funny, but imagining you in a calm environment and creating a thought thread helps in falling asleep faster.

9. Avoid Social Media

Browsing through Instagram, Facebook and Twitter create a distraction in the mind that instantly activates the brain to surf more. It is ideal to just keep all social media platforms at bay at least an hour before you wanna sleep.

So, the next time you have trouble falling asleep, try these things out. If problems persist, please contact your physician for further diagnosis.
