Sleeping problems are just ruining my life. Day by day, it looks like it’s becoming tougher to toughest when I think I’ll sleep now.

Theoretically, to keep your mind and physical health fresh and cool, you need seven to nine hours of sleep, but nowadays maximum people can’t sleep this much of time every night. As a result, diseases like- Heart disease, Stomach ulcers, Pre-diabetic state and Constipation silently create a nest in our body. Aren’t these scary enough?
