For many people, sleep can feel like a scarce commodity. If you struggle with sleep, know that you're not alone. The Sleep Foundation says that approximately 35% of Americans report not getting enough sleep, and almost half report feeling sleepy throughout the week. It's recommended that adults between the ages of 18 and 64 get between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, so if you're falling short of that, it may be time to make some adjustments.
Several aspects of your bedtime routine and your sleeping environment, also known as your sleep hygiene, can play a huge factor in how well you sleep. That glass of wine before bed, the temperature of your bedroom, and yep, even those pajamas, can all play a factor in how long and how deeply you sleep.
