Help me sleep-Healthy Insomnia Tips

Updated on February 16, 2010

I Can't Fall Asleep

If you suffer from a sleeping disorder or insomnia ,it can be a major problem in your life. Lack of sleep can lead to stress and poor performance at work.

Whatever the causes, the best insomnia cure is natural and healthy remedy rather than the use of drugs or sleeping pills.

Her are some of the more natural insomnia cures I have tried to combat sleeplessness.

Insomnia Tips

As we know everybody is different so it is always best to consult further advice as required.

A hot mug of milk with honey. Honey is one of the most natural products we use for many remedies. This seem to be effective as we are reassured by the honey and the comfort of the milk.

Doze,rest and meditate.If you can't fall asleep these practises are highly restorative for our brains and bodies.

Avoid stimulants such as tea and coffee in the evenings. Unless you are used to an after dinner coffee and it doesn't bother you. Never disrupt a schedule that works.

Don't go to sleep with an argument unsettled. An old adage,but very wise, don't go to bed with something niggling away at your mind.

Take calcium ,magnesium and potassium. These are found at pharmacies and wholefood stores, they will help to relieve restless leg syndrome which is known to keep millions of people awake.

Avoid any strenuous exercise three hours before bed. many studies show that this is the wrong time for aerobic exercise and is likely to keep you awake.

Eat potatoes warm or at room temperature before you go to bed. Studies show that this is a great insomnia cure, pasta works as well.Also be aware some studies say don't eat anything three hours before going to bed!

Drink camomile tea before going to bed. Unless you have an allergy to plants in the ragwort family.

To nap or not to nap? In Mexico and Spain it is customary to take an afternoon nap,in America it would be considered lazy.A nap would would have to be regular and last no longer than two hours.

Read before bed.  Can certainly help,but would have to be regular.

If you need any further help it can be found at sleepcouncil.
