Mature man, eyes wide open with hand on alarm clock, cannot sleep at night from insomnia

There is nothing worse than waking to feel like you never slept all night. According to Dr. Morin report from Université Laval 40% of Canadian adults have a sleep disorder. That’s over 28 million adults. That means this is more common that you think.

Most experts agree that there are some common tips to help us towards a peaceful night’s sleep.

Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual. A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep.

Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you and objects that might cause you to slip or fall if you have to get up during the night.
