You’ve come home from a hectic day at work and all you want to do is take a shower, eat and fall asleep.

You get home shower, eat but the sleeping part becomes a little tricky and you end up staying awake until wee hours of the night – dang it insomnia.

Psychologists say that the average adult requires at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep everyday but sometimes stress or even unhealthy lifestyle habits like binge watching your favorite shows throughout the night can make it impossible to get all those hours in.

No need to worry though as there are ways to make sure you fall asleep faster.
