6 Remedies to Try if You Have Trouble Sleepin

There is truly nothing worse than being so excited to go to sleep after a long, stressful day, jumping into bed, and not being able to get tired. Even though your body may be tired, your mind keeps you up, racing with thoughts as you stare aimlessly at the ceiling. Insomnia can leave you feeling hopeless. 

No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to find a way to fall asleep at night. But insomnia doesn’t have to be the end of all your restful nights. There are many to combat insomnia, with healthy and effective remedies. We all deserve to get good sleep every night, so check out these 6 remedies if you have trouble sleeping:

  • Hydrate

Hydration is key when it comes to battling insomnia. But beyond just drinking enough water throughout the day, there are many other ways you can hydrate. Certain teas, like chamomile and valerian root, relax your mind and help you fall asleep. So make it a point to drink water all day and end your night with a nice hot cup of tea.

  • Stay Cool

We have all experienced the frustration of waking up in the middle of the night absolutely sweating. But this overheating might actually be the cause of your insomnia. To help you better fall asleep at night, try switching out your regular sheets for cooling sheets that will regulate your body temperature and lead to a better night’s rest.

  • Use a Sleep Aid

Sometimes you just need to listen to the sound of waves softly crashing to fall asleep. If that is your case, definitely invest in a sleep aid device. There are sleep aid devices for every need: from soothing sounds to breathing exercises. It is an investment that will pay off when you find yourself getting the best sleep you’ve ever gotten.

  • Exercise

Exercising is beneficial for a myriad of reasons: it boosts your energy, improves your mood, helps with weight loss, and can reduce insomnia. Many people experience insomnia as a result of stress and anxiety, which exercise can certainly help with. Make it a point to move your body in some way every single day and you’ll be falling asleep much easier at night.

  • Create a Bedtime Routine

Going to bed at the same time every day alerts your body that it is time to get tired. This can help relax your mind and get you ready for sleep. But beyond just going to bed at the same time, it’s useful to create a routine that promotes relaxation. Doing things like lighting candles, using a lavender room spray, and reading before bed will calm the mind and get you tired. 

  • Avoid Screens Before Bed

If you have trouble falling asleep, do not go on your phone for at least 2 hours before bed. The blue light that is emitted from your phone screen can damage the production of melatonin, which is a hormone that helps you fall asleep. I know it’s tempting to scroll on your phone in bed, but putting your phone away and opening up a book instead will make all the difference with your sleep schedule.

Getting good sleep is important to live a healthy and happy life. Stop settling for bad sleep every night, there are easy and quick remedies to even the worst insomnia. We all deserve to go to bed every night and fall asleep as soon as your heads hit our pillows. Try out one of these tips and soon enough, you’ll be feeling as well rested and relaxed as ever.
