Digital Desk: It is hard to underestimate the importance of getting a good night's sleep. Adults need to get at least 7-8 hours of restful, undisturbed sleep, according to experts. Hormonal imbalances, weight gain, and mental health problems are just a few of the health difficulties that can result from sleep deprivation.
The CEO and founder of Power Gummies, Divij Bajaj, claims that stress at work has been contributing to anxiety, sleeplessness, and disturbed sleep. He claims that the tendency to think about work-related issues nonstop, "even at three in the morning," has reached its height as a natural response of the body and mind.
"Whether they like to admit it or not, today's millennials find it tough to maintain a work-life balance. People's stress levels have increased dramatically as a result of the pandemic that stress's impact on sleep quality is unstoppable," Bajaj claims.

· Journal your thoughts
Process the intense emotions that are keeping you up at night by clearing your mind. Writing out your feelings will help you get them out of your system and break the stress-insomnia cycle.
· Try different things to relax your thoughts.
Listen to soulful music to learn how to unwind. If listening to music is not your thing, taking care of some modest tasks around the house or reading a book might also help you feel less stressed. Try using Roman chamomile oil, lavender oil, or clary sage oil, which have mild sedative properties and help with anxiety, tension, and insomnia.
· Breathing methods
Exercises involving slow, deep breathing might hasten the process of falling asleep by reducing sympathetic activation and putting the body into a parasympathetic state of relaxation. It facilitates tension release and eases anxiety and stress. You can attempt alternate nostril breathing exercises, 4-7-8 deep breathing, box breathing, gradual muscular relaxation, etc.
· Bedtime tea is mandatory
Unplug and relax by enjoying a cup of readily available herbal teas that have been shown in studies to promote deep sleep. Teas to sip on include chamomile, valerian root, lemon balm, lavender, passionflower, peppermint, and green tea.
· Supplemental melatonin
Melatonin enhances sleep time, soothes the body, reduces daytime sleepiness, and improves overall sleep quality, according to research. Considerable melatonin gummies may be used.
· Give yourself a priority.
By eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercising, you may strengthen your body's and mind's resilience. Consume less sugar. Take charge of how you wish to set up your daily work schedule. Set aside some time for breakfast, exercise, and introspection. Set limits for work and, as a general rule, refrain from responding to work emails after 9 p.m. instead, spend time with family and friends.
