A third of all Americans are getting less than the recommended seven hours of sleep per day. Lack of sleep leads to diabetes, weight gain and high blood pressure.Unfortunately, many people struggle to find ways to improve their sleep quality.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every adult must sleep at least seven hours per day to maintain a healthy body.Otherwise, you will be prone to developing certain complications.
As per a wellness entrepreneur and researcher Chris Masterjohn, Ph.D., there are several ways to improve our sleeping habits. These require time management and creating a sleep-friendly environment.
Exposing yourself to morning sunlight allows you to follow basic sleep hygiene, Masterjohn told Mind Body Green. He said that it gives your body a steady rhythm and must be done by the moment you wake up. Being outside for half an hour allows you to absorb sufficient natural sunlight.
