If you think that the only reason why people have trouble sleeping is because of a medical issue, think again. There are tons of reasons why some people can’t seem to get 40 winks. Here are just a few of the most common.
Taking Sleep For Granted. According to the National Sleep Foundation, one of the most common reasons why people don’t get enough sleep is because they take it for granted, and fail to realize just how important sleep really is.

If you’re looking for a way to give back to your community today, donate household goods that you don’t use or don’t need. For instance, if your closet is overflowing with clothing that you barely ever wear, consider donating these items to help those in need of clothing and reduce your impact on the environment.
