Sleep is a sensitive subject for me. I have trouble falling and staying a sleep and probably have had this problem since I can remember. There are alternative to meds though, try these.
1. Easy on the Caffeine
Caffeine stays in your body for around eight hours, so have your last soda or coffee around 3 p.m. If I drink coffee or fatburners any time after 1pm I have a problem. Even try shift to green tea (this also has some caffein but better than coffee.
2. Exercise earlier.
Working out at night is fine — as long as you build in three hours for your body to calm down post-workout3. Don’t drink too much fluid before bed time.
4. Let go of the phone.
5. Try to Chill Out ( literally).
6. Skip the snooze button.
