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.
A warm bubble bath is relaxing. Especially coniferous bath foams help to calm down and relieve tension after a hard day’s work.
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.
