Do you struggle with falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early in the morning? If so, you are not alone. One of the major sleep disorders that people face is insomnia. Insomnia is an inability to get the amount of sleep needed to function efficiently during the daytime. Poor sleep has been shown to significantly worsen the symptoms of many mental health issues.

How can you get a better night’s rest? First, it is important to take care of any underlying conditions that may be causing problems with sleeping, for example, sleep apnea. Also, consider improving your sleep habits by maintaining a regular sleep schedule and having a comfortable sleep environment. Below are some relaxation techniques that can help induce sleep:
