Beat insomnia with these easy tips

Can this be attributed to our reckless lifestyle and phone addiction? Yes, to an extent!

Unfortunately, many people do not realize they’ve been struggling with insomnia in the early stages. Do you know? Over 70 million Americans have some type of sleeping disorder. 30% of adults experience a short-term insomnia while 10% of people have it lasting longer! Many have reported to fall asleep while driving a car or going through daily chores.

Not have a balanced sleep-wake cycle can mess up with the entire body system. Here are some tips that will help you manage you sleep well. However, if you still can’t handle it – don’t worry! The professionals and experts are always there to guide you. Find the right one near you using email lookup tool!

The comfort

The human brain is designed to sleep in the nights on our comfortable beds and wake up in the morning. Follow this natural routine by setting your sleep time early. Though it might seem difficult initially – you will find this useful in the long run.

Try to wind up the work and chores before 9 PM. Have early dinner to allow your body to digest the food better. Ensure that the ambience around your bedroom is calm and comfy. Lighting and temperature also play crucial role for falling asleep. So, adjust them according to your preferences.

The movements

Tiring oneself with exercise to help fall asleep faster might be a good trick for some but, it isn’t right for everyone. Exercise regularly with an intention to loosen up your muscles and burn calories. Maintain some time gap between the workout and sleep time because if they’re too close to each other, you might end up staying awake during your sleep.

Another aspect is to control your liquid intake like caffeine and alcohol. These things deter you not only from health but rest cycles too. As they say, anything of too much is always bad. On one hand, caffeine pumps the body to be more active while on the other alcohol might help you fall asleep, but it won’t last for long – waking you up in the middle of the night!

The positive affirmations

Few like to listen to white noise to help them sleep faster while others might like to write in their journals. Whatever the task is, always consider keeping it simple and finish it in the bed. Avoid using smartphones – the lights coming through it are only likely to keep you awake! Try to inculcate the habit of writing.

Keep a journal near your bed lamp and write your thoughts and worries down. Psychologically, it is stated to decrease your anxiety and worries when you learn to pen it on the book. If you aren’t feeling asleep even after all these tips then don’t lie in bed anymore! Instead, get up and stroll around the house or sit in another room. You are more likely to feel sleepier this way rather than just lying and checking the clock!

Final thoughts

Instead of resisting, understand your body’s needs and try to rest in a comfortable position. If not, you always will have a professional to help!
