The standard recommendation is at least 8 hours, though i do believe some of us, myself included, could do with a lot more.
Failing to get enough sleep leads to aging, fatigue, shortened life span, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and the list goes on.
I'm not a fan of legal drugs so I'll share with you a few natural wonders that can help you catch a few zzzz's.
- Chamomile tea
- A warm bath
- Valerian root
- A spritz of lavender to your pillow
What to Avoid:
- Here I am again saying to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and sugar as they all interfere with sleep.
- Naps during the day
- Try not to have a TV or computer in the bedroom
Other things you may want to try include:
- Meditation and relaxation techniques
- Sleeping in a dark room
