A change in your routine due to travel or work can wreak havoc on your ability to sleep, since it can disrupt your body’s circadian rhythms. Your circadian rhythms function like an internal clock, regulating your sleep-wake cycle, your metabolism and body temperature.

Eating too much before bedtime can also impact your sleep, since lying down may be uncomfortable if you’ve overindulged. Eating foods that disagree with you, even if it's in small amounts, can be a problem as well since indigestion may keep you awake. Spicy foods in particular have been shown to cause heartburn, which can disrupt sleep.

It’s important to go to bed and get up around the same time every night, 7 days a week, in order to have quality sleep. This consistency helps reinforce your body’s sleep-wake cycle.

You may find it harder to sleep as you get older, since insomnia becomes more common with age. This is usually due to changes in your body, activity levels, sleep patterns and overall health. The more active you are during the day, the easier it will be to sleep at night.
