Brief Answer: Avoid stress, if any. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. It will be helpful if you mention your job profile. Stress and anxiety are a major cause of insomnia or less sleep. As age increases, it is seen that duration of total hours of sleep decreases. Yoga and meditation will help in relaxing the mind and help in proper sleep. Also avoid sleeping in day time so that you get a proper sleep at night. If the symptoms persists, get your self clinically examined and investigated. I hope this is helpful to you. Regards. Thanks.
