You Need Some Help Sleeping!

Sleep is precious - it is peaceful, relaxing, and recharges our batteries. Or does it? Many, many individuals have trouble sleeping and for most it is an easy fix. Looking at your answers, it seems just a few changes could drastically improve your sleep quality - such as setting a routine bedtime and wake-up time, which helps tenfold when it comes to your body rest during certain hours. If you have pets, try to keep them off the bed - they can be a huge distraction and often don't need or want a solid night's sleep all the way through like us humans. The absolute best way to ensure a better night's sleep, however, is to separate yourself from electronic devices: Silence your phone and put it out of reach, eliminate "falling asleep to TV", and definitely don't settle into bed with a laptop/tablet - All of this really whacks with your melatonin production and fools your brain into keeping you awake for much longer than if you were reading a book or listening to quiet, soothing music. In the same vain, try not use your bed space for anything other than sleep or intercourse. This is an often overlooked mistake that can really mess with your subconscious ability to relax in bed. Sweet dreams!
You're an Average Sleeper!

You seem to be an average sleeper, which shouldn't be taken for granted! There is, however, room for improvement that could maximize your health during both day and night hours. From your answers, it seems just a few changes could drastically improve your sleep quality. If you're a napper, take short naps - 30 minutes or less. Long naps keep you from being tired when it comes to bedtime, which can really whack sleep hours out of alignment. Other vices, such as smoking, caffeine, and alcohol all really mess with your body's ability to sleep. Even eating meals late in the evening can really impact restful sleep, so try to eat dinner as early as possible (and if you get hungry before bed, eat a healthy, light snack if you have to).
