2) Proper Sleep

It is important to sleep a minimum of seven to nine hours every night to keep your immune system functioning well and for optimal physical and mental performance. There might be many people who suffer from insomnia. Lack of sleep impacts your memory, emotions, weight and even your appearance. The older you get, the harder it can be to fall and stay asleep, but you still need the same amount of hours. There are certain foods that help you overcome this. According to the National Sleep Foundation, most sleep problems are a result of snoring, medication side effects and underlying medical conditions, such as acid reflux, depression and prostate problems. Addressing those issues with your doctor is a good start. You can also enjoy more satisfying sleep by creating a calming space, dedicating enough time for sleep and practicing relaxation techniques.
