    I can understand your situation.Try to attend some yoga and medidations when you wake up around 6am in the morning.And while going to bed listen to some melody musics and eat your dinner in a limit that can easily get digest.

    Try to avoid the unnecessary thoughts and feelings that run in your mind when you fo to bed.Also do some physical exercise and keep your mental stress in a limit.Establish a bedtime routine.Avoid bright lights and sound alarm.Don't use/watch tv,mobile phones before 1 hour you are ready to sleep.

    Don't go to bed on full/empty stomach.Keep your bedroom dark and quiet.Go to sleep and wake up only using your internal alarm clock.

    Hope,it helps you

    Take care.   :)

    Hello there,

    As you mentioned that you do not get enough sleep, there can be many reasons for this.

    I'm not sure about your age group, however, if you are a pre-teen, teenager, or adolescent person then it could be due to hormonal changes.

    Lack of sleep could be due lifestyle changes too. Not getting tired,having too much of stress, peer pressure, relationship issues,exam pressure,can lead to sleep issues.

    Make your surroundings and bed clean before you sleep.

    Make sure you are not hungry too. 

    Do not watch too much television before sleeping.

    Try Yoga & Meditation or exercises that help you sleep better,

    Dear user. There are many reasons for lack of proper sleep and most prominent among them is, of course, stress and obsessive negative thoughts. Worrying that I am not getting enough sleep in itself will ruin your sleep. So stop worrying about it.


    If you are physically tired, you get good sleep. So make sure you get physical exercise and other physical activities. You have to get away from mental stress. Exercise and meditation and relaxation will help.


    The above advice is just general. I need to know more about your sleep pattern and other problems so as to provide you methods of cure. Take care.
