Why can't I fall asleep?
You know the drill: you brush your teeth, crawl into bed, and close your eyes, hoping to drift off into dreamland. But as the minutes tick by, your mind races and you toss and turn, unable to fall asleep. Sound familiar? It's a frustrating experience that we've all gone through at some point. But have you ever stopped to consider what might be causing your sleepless nights?
When the melatonin isn't working.
What is melatonin?
Enter melatonin, the hormone responsible for regulating sleep in the body. When it's dark outside, your brain produces more melatonin, which signals to your body that it's time to hit the hay. When it's light out, production decreases, helping you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
What causes melatonin disruption?
But what happens when your melatonin levels are out of whack? This can be caused by a variety of factors, including artificial light exposure at night (hello, screens!), shift work, and jet lag. When melatonin production is disrupted, it can lead to difficulty falling and staying asleep, leaving you feeling groggy and rundown.
How to recalibrate your melatonin levels
So, how can you get your melatonin levels back on track and start sleeping like a champ? Here are a few tips:
- Dim the lights before bed.
- Avoid screens for at least an hour before bedtime.
- Stick to a consistent sleep schedule.
- Consider using a melatonin supplement.
