Methods to Improve Quality of Sleep and Insomnia

Have trouble sleeping? You are not alone, CDC.gov states that over a third of U.S. adults have trouble sleeping. I have always had difficulty falling asleep and getting a full restful night's sleep. I have tried many methods from going to the doctor for prescribed sleeping medication to taking melatonin but I have found out for me these are more of a short term solution. The most effective things that work for me are exercising early in the day and managing stress and anxiety as much as I can. I try to this by winding down at night by reading, listening to music or podcasts. Sleep problems appear to me to be more individualistic than I may have first thought, everything might not work for everyone but hearing from other people can you discover ways that help you unwind and relax at night. Please share your own experiences with sleep problems and what has helped you personally.
