Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
We all need sleep.
We are aware of that information. We need proper nutrition, strenuous exercise, and enough rest to grow. If you are not getting enough sleep, you will not develop. Yet, there are people like me who seemed to have difficulty getting some sleep.
Ever since my youth, I have had a difficult time sleeping. I could stay up late even as a boy, and it got worst in my adulthood. With all the complexity of adult life, it is natural to lose some sleep with some stuff. I would wake up three in the afternoon and stay up until eight in the morning. I would spend my time working and hope that I could catch a break soon. I would only fall asleep when I exhausted myself.

Now back to my topic.
With that said, I am not an expert on getting a good night’s sleep. I am excited to write about this topic to offer up my experiences or mistakes about it. The stuff I got wrong and what I did correctly.
When you are having trouble falling asleep, your first impulse is to take some pills. I have made this mistake back in college. I was desperate to get some sleep that I started taking over the counter sleeping aids. While pills surely help, they also diminish the quality of sleep. You also run the risk of becoming dependent. Before you take anything, consider other options.
Having a bedtime relaxation routine helped me a lot. A bedtime yoga or a mild cup of tea relaxes me. Another thing that eases my restlessness is to meditate or do breathing exercises. My uneasiness comes from anxiety, anything that soothes my troubled mind helps.
Snacking on a sandwich or any carbohydrates can also assist in helping you sleep. Studies show that insulin produced from carbohydrates aids in regulating the circadian rhythm. Others claim that carbohydrates increase Tryptophan which induces sleep. Yet, avoid eating a full meal before going to bed.
Finally, avoid staring at your mobile devices. Blue light is the primary culprit of modern-day sleep disruption. Mobile devices emit a lot of blue light enough to exacerbate the restlessness. I am guilty of it. I love working as much as I can, but being in front of the computer all the time worsens my unrest.
There you have it, a few of my experiences on how to manage sleeplessness. I hope you find it helpful! If you have anything to add, please comment down below. I would love to hear about it and try it on.
