How often do you get a good night’s sleep? While some people are blessed with the ability to quickly and soundly fall asleep nigh after night, many others toss and turn, and find themselves completely exhausted in the morning. Research shows that lying in bed for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time without sleeping can actually make it more difficult to finally nod off. The secret to a good night’s rest then is to fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow.
Sleep medications may be the answer to some, but the most healthy rest is not induced by medication. Medical sleep aids might make someone fall asleep quickly, but may not allow for rest that lasts for many hours. Worse yet, if the dosage is too great, sleep medicine can mean you will wake up groggy and over medicated in the morning.
