You are eating more processed and fast foods than ever before.  You constantly abuse your bodies with avoidable medicines. Children are galloping burgers, French fries and Colas.

Good night’s sleep

Sleep tends to be the first thing that is sacrificed in a busy person’s life. You should block out unwanted noise, keep the room slightly cool, make sure your room is dark enough, and have a comfortable bed. Avoid consuming caffeine in the evening. You should also moderate your overall caffeine intake, because it can stay in your system and affect your sleep. Light prevents your body from secreting melatonin, the hormone that makes you tired. I know it’s hard, but you should try to stop using your phone, tablet, TV, and laptop for two hours before you plan on going to sleep. While lying in bed to sleep, try to relax your entire body. Next, go through each specific muscle group one at a time and make it as tense as possible, relaxing it before moving on to the next one. Start with your forehead and move all the way down to your toes. When you are finished, check your body and see what parts are still tense. For each of these muscles, repeat the tension and release three or four times. Sleep is likely to come without pills.
