You Should Only Read This if You Want to Sleep Better Tonight (and Every Night After That)

Nothing feels worse than having to drag yourself to the office after a bad night’s sleep. Your thoughts are clouded, your body feels heavy, and, chances are, you won’t be able to complete any meaningful tasks during the day (unless you use these research-backed hacks for staying awake).

And, as much as you’d like to snap your fingers and transform into a bright and cheery morning person, it won’t happen until you identify whatever it is that’s keeping you from sleeping soundly. Are there too many devices in your room? Is your mattress not providing enough support? Or, worse, could it be that your dessert is making your stomach work overtime?

Use this flowchart from The Sleep Matters Club to find your bad sleeping habit—and learn some quick and easy ways to fix it.
