It is general knowledge that a cup of hot chamomile tea, cocoa or milk before going to bed is a part and parcel of a good night sleep. Moreover, if you take a hot soothing bath, you will sleep like a small child, for sure. However, there are sad statistics that more and more people are prescribed sleeping pills, which means that the inability to fall asleep is a really serious problem. If you belong to those people who find it hard to fall asleep, then read this article till the end.
Ways to Fall Asleep Fast:
1. Practice some yoga methods
If you have difficulties falling asleep, search for some meditation or yoga practices and do them before going to bed. For example, try inhaling through your left nostril, which is expected to reduce your blood pressure and anxiety. Lie down on your left side and put your finger on the right nostril to block the airway. After that, start inhaling and exhaling merely via the left nostril. Besides, try humming when sitting in a comfortable position.
2. Squeeze your body and relax
Do some physical exercises and relax. No, no, no – don’t get me wrong! I’m not telling you to exercise yourself mercilessly so that you literally fall off your feet. Just do some exercises for your shoulders, arms, knees, thighs, abdomen, chest, etc. Stretch and relax each muscle of your body.
3. Try to be awake
Have you ever heard of sleep paradox? Well, try to stay awake and you will see how your inner self will demand a cozy and soft blanket with a pillow.
4. Recall everything that happened to you in a reversed order
Researchers who provide healthy sleep tips claim that when a person recalls all the events that happened to them in a reversed order, they mentally get prepared to sleep.
5. Do some exercises for your eyes
When you close your eyes and roll up your eyeballs for several times (a minimum of three), this activity serves as a stimulant for you to fall asleep faster. So, if you want to sleep better, try out this technique.
When lying in bed, just visualize some pleasant events happening to you, for example, you are lying on a sunny, sandy beach, sipping scrumptious cocktails, etc.
These are just some of the healthy sleep tips that will help you overcome insomnia. Besides, if you are a fan of making different to-do lists late in the evenings or worrying about the coming day, it’s clear why you have difficulties in sleeping. Try to relax and leave your worries behind.
