If you don’t sleep well and get plenty of rest, you don’t feel well, perform well - or even worse - risk running into serious health problems you don’t want to face.
So - why do many of us struggle getting enough sleep?
One reason is that the environment we’re surrounding ourselves in is causing melatonin deficiency.
Melatonin is the great sleep-regulating hormone.
Your body naturally produces it in response to darkness. It regulates your circadian rhythm (also known as your sleep-wake cycle), which helps you become tired and tells you to fall asleep.
Up until a few hundred years ago, when night came and the sun set, our ancestors would get surrounded by darkness, produce melatonin, get tired and fall asleep.
