It's been a stressful year and many are struggling to fall asleep.
Poor quality sleep compromises your energy levels, immune system, mood, metabolism, and overall health.
If you're having trouble nodding off at night, this hack used by the US Army may help you:
• Relax the muscles in your face, including tongue, jaw and the muscles around the eyes.
• Drop your shoulders as far down as they'll go, followed by your upper and lower arm, one side at a time.
• Breathe out, relaxing your chest followed by your legs, starting from the thighs and working down.
