3. Try sleeping on your left side
Do you ever toss and turn in bed trying to determine which position would be best for you to sleep in? Some people have already determined the answer to that question, but for many, doubt seeps back in every time they have trouble falling asleep. Will you feel more rested on your back? Would lying on your stomach be better? As it turns out, not only do experts say you should stick to your side, but they even recommend a specific one at that. Dr. John Douillard turns to ayurveda, an alternative form of medicine from India, to explain how sleeping on your left side may be the ideal way to give your body the rest it needs.
4. Understand the side effects of poor sleep
Before making changes in one’s lifestyle, you must believe the change is necessary and vital for better health. Consistent lack of sleep causes significant changes in your brain and body, and it increases your risk of a number of serious health issues.
