Nowadays, you don't hear many people talking about that "good night's sleep" they had last night. Or how much energy they have on a Monday morning. Or how naps are overrated.
In fact, it's usually quite the opposite: we can't fall asleep, we guzzle coffee, and we need a nap.

So "if you have trouble sleeping, these simple and totally doable pointers can make a huge difference," reads the caption on the video below. Check it out!
