Research supports taking magnesium for sleep. By adding magnesium to the diets of people who suffered from poor sleep, the participants slept significantly better, and they had a decrease in sympathetic nervous activity, which is an indicator of stress and arousal.

The amount of sleep a person needs changes during their life, from just after being born to older age:
•Infants require about 16 hours a day
•Teenagers need about 9 hours on average
•Most adults need 6 to 9 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day
•Women in the first 3 months of pregnancy often need several more hours of sleep than usual
Fitting everything into an already overcrowded day can be like trying to jam a pizza box into a garbage bag. It may fit, but something got to give.
Much of the time, what’s giving is sleep. Instead of sacrificing a good book, a favourite television show, or a few extra minutes of social networking, people have found a way to stretch their days by stealing from their nights.
Tips for better sleep
•Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day — even on the weekends!
•Exercise regularly. Try to finish exercising at least five to six hours before bedtime.
•Don’t eat a lot close to bedtime. Food can give you a burst of energy.
•Avoid bright lights right before bed, including the ones that come from the TV or the computer. Sleep in a dark room. •Darkness tells your body it’s time for sleep.
•Sleep in a slightly cool room. If you can't control the temperature, try using fewer blankets or dressing lightly.
•Follow a bedtime routine. If you do the same things each night before bed, your body will know it’s time for sleep. Take a •warm bath or shower. Or drink a glass of milk.
•Wake up to bright light. Light tells your body it’s time to get up.
•Listen to your body. If you’re feeling tired, go to sleep. If you can’t fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, get up and do something else until you feel sleepy.
•Avoid caffeine. That means cutting back on coffee, soda, chocolate, and energy drinks — or at least trying not to have any late in the day.
•Don’t nap for longer than 30 minutes or take naps too close to bedtime.
•Don’t stay up all night studying. Try doing a little each night instead. If you pull an all-nighter, you may be too tired to do well on your test.
•Set aside time to relax for about an hour before bed. Turn off your cell phone and your computer! If your tasks have you worried, write them down to get them off your mind.
