Do you have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep? Here are the top 7 reasons why you might be having trouble with sleeping.
Too much caffeine – It may be a no brainer but a lot of people like to drink energy drinks, soda, after dinner coffee, tea and eat chocolate at night. All these things have caffeine in them which can keep you awake.
Stress – Stress and lack of sleep are closely related. According to the American Psychological Association, adults that get less than 8 hours of sleep each night report higher levels of stress.
Sleep environment – Is you room too hot? Too cold? Too much noise? Too much light? The key to getting a good night sleep is making sure your room is the correct sleep environment.

TV – Watching tv or streaming Netflix before you go to bed can make your mind race. Especially if you are watching a juicy new show. It is good to give yourself some time to wind down before you get into bed.
Alcohol – If you enjoy a nightcap, it might affect your sleep. As alcohol breaks down in your body and it’s effects wear off, it can interfere with deep sleep.
Eating too late – A heavy meal right before bedtime can leave you tossing and turning all night. It can lead to indigestion and acid reflux. If you want to snack before bed, keep it light and stay away from spicy or greasy foods.
