If you’re not getting enough sleep, you’ll be more likely to wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to fall back asleep. You’ll also have a harder time falling asleep at night, which will make it harder for you to stay asleep for long periods of time. This is especially true if you’ve been sleeping poorly for a long time, or if your sleep is interrupted by a lot of other things, such as work, school, family, and other activities.

So these are the tips and tricks that may useful:

Eat a healthy, balanced diet. A healthy diet is one that includes a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, soy products, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products (including milk and cheese), and low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, cheese, ice cream, cakes, cookies, crackers, peanut butter, and jelly, etc. It’s also important to eat foods that are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as fruits and vegetables rich in fiber and vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, thiamine, riboflavin.

And lots of exercises. Exercise is a great way to help you fall asleep, but it’s not the only thing you need to do to keep your body from going into a deep slumber. In fact, exercise is only one of many things you can do that will help keep you from getting too sleepy. Here are a few other ways to make sure you don’t get too tired.

Drink plenty of water. Water is an excellent source of hydration and helps you stay awake.

Don’t overdo it. Too much sleep can lead to a number of health problems. For example, excessive sleepiness can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, sleep apnea, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.

Take a vitamin supplement. Vitamin A and C are essential for healthy eyesight and brain function.
