Hi Shruti,

adverbs are most frequently placed right after the conjugated verb, as in:

J'ai bien dormi. -- I slept well.
Il doit vraiment faire ses devoirs! -- He really must do his homework!

But exceptions exist. Here is a good site that explains where to place them: http://www.frenchlanguageguide.com/grammar/placement.asp

Or here, another good one: https://www.thoughtco.com/use-french-adverbs-4084828

Greetings, -- Chris (not a native speaker).

Pourquoi c’est- Aujourd’ui Je n’ai pas bien dors ? Au lieu de Aujourd’ui Je ne dors pas bien ?

Aujourd'hui je n'ai pas bien dormi. -- Today I didn't sleep well. 

Aujourd'hui je ne dors pas bien. -- Today I don't sleep well.
