It is very common for people to make the mistake of trying to keep up with their sleeping hours after they have missed several nights of sleep.

If last night you were unable to get your complete 8 hours of sleep, and you only had a shut eye for 5 hours, then you do not have to try harder tomorrow night by sleeping 12 hours.

About five to six decades ago insomnia was still a condition that people dealt with, and they sort out different herbal remedies to get better sleep life.

One reason why a lot of people have insomnia these days especially young people is the number of hours they expose their eyes to gadgets like phones and computers.

A lot of doctors that specialize in sleep and sleep problems have recommended that people endeavor to reduce the number of hours that their eyes are exposed to the screens of their phones or computers especially during the night time.

We must understand that lights from these gadgets are unnatural and they send signals to your brain that it is not yet time for you to sleep. This, at the ends, put you in a state where it becomes difficult for you to fall asleep or even stay asleep when you force yourself to fall asleep.

Doctors have recommended that at least two to three hours before it’s time to sleep you have to completely avoid watching movies videos or whatever it is that you do with your smart devices.

To might seem like too much to ask, because it has become a habit for a lot of us to fall asleep watching our favourite programs or movies. But, if you must improve your sleep life then you have to give up these pleasures before sleep time.
