Here is a quick tip:
Establish a wind down routine. Turn off the tv, put down phones and start getting ready for bed about 1 1/2 to 2 hours before you want to go to sleep. Turn on dark modes and/or use blue blocker glasses. This is a great time to incorporate a daily mobility routine, put together your meal or clothes for the next day, participate in a meditation practice, read, read to your kids, or any number of other activities that can allow you to tell your body it is time to relax and sleep is approaching. Here is a CDC article identifying the increased risks of not sleeping enough, in this articles case they investigated those who slept more or less than 7 hours and the prevalence of chronic disease https://www.cdc.gov/sleep/data_statistics.html.
