According to the CDC, more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. This lack of sleep (less than seven hours per day) is associated with an increased risk of developing chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and frequent mental distress. Here are seven natural remedies that can help you get better sleep.

This routine can include dimming the lights in your bedroom, soaking in a warm bath, lowering the bedroom temperature, and sitting down with your favorite book. Whatever your routine, make sure you follow it every night to get into a consistent habit of preparing for bed.
