Getting 40 Winks: Why You Might Have Trouble Getting to Bed

Do you have trouble getting enough sleep, no matter how much you try to stick to your bedtime schedule? Don’t worry,  you’re not alone. Following, are just a few of the most common reasons why people have trouble getting to sleep and what can be done.

Not Falling Asleep Soon Enough

One reason why you might have trouble falling asleep is that you’re just not ready to go to sleep. If you spend more than 15 or 20 minutes in bed lying down without actually going to sleep, you may actually have an even more difficult time nodding off. In this case, you may want to want to get up and do something for a short while and then try going back to bed.

Can’t Get Comfortable

Another reason you may find it hard to fall asleep is simply because you can’t get comfortable. This is perfectly normal. When people sleep, they actually wind up changing positions unconsciously to avoid the discomfort and tension of sleeping in uncomfortable ways. One way people may be able to rectify this issue is to invest in adjustable beds. Adjustable bed mattresses can — as the name implies — be adjusted, allowing the sleeper to rest in different positions. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adjustable mattresses may help take pressure off of areas that could make sleeping uncomfortable.


Lastly, you might be overthinking things. Literally. One reason why many people can’t nod off at night is because they’re obsessing about a situation at work or a problem with a loved one. If this is the case then you may want to try  walking around the house for a few minutes or sitting at the kitchen table with a warm glass of milk.
