There are many factors that contribute to tossing and turning at night and not getting the sleep you want (and need!). Here are 5 reasons you could be problems getting rest and how to overcome feeling like a zombie in the morning!

2) ​You are drinking too much caffeine. 
Having a cup of tea before bed time may not seem like a big deal, but the caffeine intake can keep you awake longer than you like! Skip the tea all together or switch to decaf to sleep like a baby! 

3) You are stressed out. 
If you are stressed out about anything in your life, chances are you will think about it the most at night. Focusing on your issues before calling it a night can prevent you from getting a good night's sleep. Therefore, do your best to calm your mind before hitting the sheets.

4) You ate too much! 
Going to bed with a full belly of heavy food can make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. Dinner should be the lightest meal of your day so remember to eat light before jumping into the sack. 

5) Your room is too hot/cold. 
If you find yourself turning side to side, feeling super uncomfortable and unable to sleep, it could be because of the temperature in the room. Make sure our thermostat is set around 20​ºC to get the best night sleep!
