10 proven methods to beat insomnia
Can’t sleep? You are not alone. Everyone’s had this problem at least once in their life. Don’t worry, you can beat insomnia!
We tend to think that sleep is not so important as our everyday activities. However, it is quite the opposite. Sleep is a fundamental process for our health, good memory and a long life. For a sound sleep try the following tips.
#1 No light or sounds
Before going to sleep, make sure you turn off your mobile devices and put them away from your bed. A flashing screen or unexpected sound can wake you up and it will be difficult to fall asleep. Sometimes even a night-light can be disturbing, so try to create the perfect atmosphere for a healthy sleep.
#2 Try meditation
Today many people are sure that meditation can help with many health problems. There was a study that proved it can help to have a better sleep. People who suffer from insomnia are stressed out because they can’t sleep and all their attempts double this stress. Meditation helps to relax, ease the stress and clear your mind.
#3 Stick to a sleep schedule
Go to sleep and wake up at the same time. Today everybody has a schedule for business and personal matters and usually there’s not enough time for sleep. Consider this and you will have a good night’s rest and wake up easily every morning. Mind, if you suffer from insomnia, day naps can make things even worse.
#4 Don’t count sheep
It will make your brain work and keep you awake. It’s better to recall something pleasant, your favorite places where you were happy and relaxed.
#5 Control your room temperature
Doctors say the perfect temperature for a healthy sleep is 70 °F, so use this tip and don’t forget your cozy blanket.
#6 Listen to music
We listen music to wake up and have a good mood. So why not use it for a better sleep? Choose relaxing music you like, let it be one of your sleeping habits.
#7 Do some exercises or practice yoga
#8 Don’t drink alcohol and don’t overeat before going to bed
It’s better to have a light snack an hour before going to bed and drink a glass of tart cherry juice, as it is rich in melatonin that controls our wake-sleep cycle.
#9 Try to avoid caffeine in the afternoon
It stays in your body for 7-8 hours, so probably you won’t be able to fall asleep or will wake up during the night.
