The Sleep Plan for the Middle of the Night

With bright screens and late-night distractions on the rise, it’s no wonder that many Americans struggle to get good-quality sleep. Many lie awake in their bed hours after hitting the sack silently wishing they would just fall asleep, while others awaken in the middle of the night and can’t get their eyes to close again. If you frequently find yourself in either of these situations, try this sleep action plan to get back in bed in the middle of the night.

Heading Back to Bed

Once you’ve started to feel sleepy, grab an extra pillow and head back to bed. Take that extra pillow and put it under your knees. Doing so relieves lower back pressure and allows tense muscles to relax. In turn, this helps your whole body to relax and calm itself, which is essential to falling asleep.
