5 Ways to Get the Best Sleep of Your Life

Sleeping beauty

Sometimes a good night’s sleep can mean the difference between a disjointed, unproductive day and a fulfilling, enjoyable one. Why is that?

Sleep is a time of rest and repair, but even more than that, it allows us to process short and long-term memories, metabolize emotional experiences, and is instrumental in learning. It would follow, then, that sleep deprivation might lead to difficulty with memory, emotional imbalance, and loss of focus, all of which can contribute to a fragmented and uncomfortable state of mind.

There is a reason sleep aids have carved a powerful niche in the pharmaceutical industry, and if you’ve ever experienced insomnia then you can probably relate. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4% of American adults over 20 years old use prescription sleep aids in a month period. And apart from prescription aids, there are boundless other sleep remedies people try, from melatonin to warmed milk and everything in between.

Here are 5 great articles on how to improve your sleep, from some of our favorite sources for wellness content around the web:
