Sure­ly every­one has expe­ri­enced insom­nia. The inabil­i­ty to fall into the desired sleep is a rather unpleas­ant con­di­tion, espe­cial­ly when there is an ear­ly rise in the morn­ing. Some are wait­ing for a busy work­ing day, oth­ers — no less inten­sive study. If the tried meth­ods — count to a hun­dred and med­i­ta­tion do not help, it is worth try­ing to solve this prob­lem dif­fer­ent­ly.

How to deal with insomnia?

Often, when try­ing to sleep, we think not about pleas­ant moments, but about how stress­ful the day was. This makes it hard­er for the body to adjust to a good night’s sleep. In this case, it is worth try­ing to remem­ber the joy­ful events that cause a smile and relax­ation. And remem­ber, overex­ci­ta­tion and stress are best removed before you go to bed. Also pay atten­tion to what drinks you have pre­ferred late­ly. Per­haps, it is nec­es­sary to exclude ton­ic “irri­tants”. Instead of strong cof­fee and tea, it is worth drink­ing ordi­nary water, juices, fruit drinks, fresh juices and com­potes for sev­er­al days. In addi­tion to the nor­mal­iza­tion of sleep, you will be able to observe a gen­er­al improve­ment in your con­di­tion.

Anoth­er rea­son for lack of sleep can be mal­nu­tri­tion. If you have a habit of going to bed on an emp­ty or full stom­ach, it’s no sur­prise that sleep does­n’t come. Of course, you should not arrange a bel­ly feast for your­self every day, but going to bed hun­gry is stress­ful for the body. If the body will for­give you the first and sec­ond “hun­gry” nights, then next time it is bet­ter not to “drag­o­nize” it. At night, you should drink a glass of kefir or eat a few table­spoons of cot­tage cheese. These dairy prod­ucts are not only good for the body, they also help you fall asleep faster.

You can add a few drops of oth­er essen­tial oils to warm water. Spruce, laven­der, man­darin, pep­per­mint per­fect­ly soothe the ner­vous sys­tem. After 15–20 min­utes of this pro­ce­dure, you will be able to fall asleep faster as soon as you find your­self in bed.

The opposite method

If you have tried many ways, but it still doesn’t work to over­come insom­nia, use the oppo­site method. To do this, you need to remove the sources of noise and turn off the lights, close your eyes and imag­ine that you can’t fall asleep in any case. For exam­ple, think about some impor­tant event that should hap­pen at night. Ful­ly real­ize the impor­tance of being awake. Repeat to your­self that you can’t sleep. This strange, at first glance, method is very effec­tive.
