Calm Down Before Bed To Get To Sleep Fast

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live or what line of work you are in: Life is stressful for everybody. As the day turns to night and the time comes for you to try and get some much-deserved sleep, shutting off your thoughts and reaching a state of relaxation can seem almost impossible.  

In fact:

  • 35% of Americans don’t get the recommended seven hours of sleep each night
  • 77% of Americans lose sleep over the Coronavirus pandemic
  • 48% of Americans stated that feeling anxious during the Coronavirus pandemic was the main reason that makes it harder for them to fall asleep
  • Despite the fact that 70% of Americans agreed that lack of sleep makes them more vulnerable to COVID-19, only 11% of participants choose to get more sleep while staying at home during the self-quarantine

Take a closer look at the data here.

If you’re having a hard time getting to sleep or staying asleep, then it might be time to mix up your bedtime routine to achieve the best rest you can get.
