How To Fall Asleep Fast: 10 Tips To Get the Best Night’s Sleep

According to the CDC, individuals receiving less than 8 hours of sleep per night increase their risk for severe health conditions by as much as 28.8%. 

Learning how to fall asleep fast and stay asleep can be very important in reducing your chances of developing a serious health concern. 

The best way to fall asleep fast is to be prepared for bedtime and do the following: 

Eating Enough Filling Calories

By eating filling foods, you can decrease your chances of waking up hungry in the middle of the night and wanting a snack. 


Dehydration can contribute to muscle cramping and soreness, which can cause discomfort and keep you from falling asleep fast. 

Getting Sunshine

Sunlight decreases melatonin production during the day to undetectable levels, and waking up earlier and getting sunshine can give you energy and help you have an earlier bedtime.
