As many as 68% of Americans in a recent Consumer Reports survey reported having trouble falling or staying asleep at least once a week. With so many reasons to stay awake, including late work nights and the temptations of computer and phone screens, the climbing number of poor sleepers will likely only continue to grow.

Regardless of these distractions, focusing on taking steps towards a better night's sleep has many proven health benefits. Getting the recommended amount of sleep per night for adults at 7-9 hours has been shown to heal and repair heart and blood vessels, and reduce the likelihood of developing heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Furthermore, getting proper sleep at night can improve concentration, productivity, athletic performance, metabolic functionality, immune system operations, and general levels of happiness.

How can we take steps, therefore, towards improving sleep in our fast-paced and distracting culture? One way to positively impact sleep habits can be found in the foods that we avoid and that we eat. By concentrating on removing certain foods from our diet and buying more slumber-inducing sources of nourishment from the store, we can nurture our bodies' natural abilities to fall and stay asleep on a more consistent basis.
