Say goodbye to staring at the clock for an hour after going to bed.

A recent survey by Healthy Life found that millennials are the nation’s worst sleepers with about a third of Australians (32 per cent) aged 25-34 unable to recall the last time they had a good night’s sleep.

A further 31 per cent said they averaged a good night’s rest only once a week.

The survey also found that women were worse off with 28 per cent of female respondents admitting they couldn’t recall the last time they had a good night’s rest, compared to 20 per cent of male respondents.

Sleep deprivation can affect all sorts of things including your mood, hormones, weight and blood pressure. So taking a long time to get to sleep at night isn’t ideal for getting a decent amount of shut-eye.

According to another study by sleep specialists Time 4 Sleep, a third of us take at least 30 minutes to fall asleep every night, with 16 per cent taking up to two hours to nod off.

So here are some tips to help you nod off faster.
