Sleep allows our bodies time to properly rest, and restore enough energy to make it through the next day, and if you struggle with insomnia, getting to sleep has probably never been an easy thing for you. However, there are steps you can take starting in the morning that could make it easier to fall asleep when the night comes. Here are a few things you can do throughout the day to win the fight against insomnia, and have an easy, restful night of much needed sleep...

Begin in the morning.

You should start off your day by exercising in the morning after a light pre workout breakfast because the adrenaline will give you an extra energy boost to help keep you alert for the whole day. However, if you are unable to complete your workout in the mornings, just be sure to do it at least 4 or 5 hours before bed, to ensure the adrenaline doesn't keep you awake.There are also certain drinks that should be avoided for a more desirable night's sleep.

If you enjoy drinking large quantities of alcoholic, or caffeinated beverages, cutting back is something you should seriously consider if getting more sleep is important to you. Additionally, naps should be avoided because they make it harder to fall asleep when you actually want to sleep through the night, but if a nap is absolutely necessary it should be limited to 20 minutes or less.

Nightly routine.

When the evening arrives, and it's time to make dinner, a lighter meal is always better because heavy mealy can lead to indigestion, which can make it increasingly difficult to fall asleep. Be that as it may, hunger will lease you lying awake a night, so make sure your meal has the right balance of healthy foods that will satisfy your appetite. You should also shut down all your electronics when you are getting ready for bed to send signals to your brain letting it know it's time to wind down.
