If you’re not sleeping through the night or you’re just barely making it through the afternoon without a caffeine boost to keep you coherent throughout the day, it’s time to make a few adjustments to your sleeping routine.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, 48 percent of Americans report insomnia occasionally, while 22 percent experience insomnia every or almost every night. Additionally, women are 1.3 times more likely to report insomnia than men.
Frugivore released an article on this epidemic late last year, which states that insomnia is under-diagnosed, fairly difficult to treat, and breeds confusion as to where people should go for treatment.
While not every treatment can work for everyone, and many drugs promise relief but could make matters worse, there are a few at-home help aids that may help to make a difference in your sleeping routine.
Easy to execute at home, here’s our list of a few au natural remedies and lifestyle changes you can make to help you get a good night’s rest:

exercising a couple of hours before bed helps me personally…it wipes me out at just the right time…
i can’t drink tea or any liquids before bed because it might wake me up during the night but chamomile is amazing for destressing in general. I used to drink loads of it in university.
The best thing i’ve done is taking my cellphone and laptop OUT of my room when I need to go to bed. I just personally need that extreme! I don’t know how people can have TV’s in their rooms (unless like my parents it’s hardly on)…
