Simple Sleep Remedies
Set a consistent sleeping schedule. Going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day helps regulate your internal clock, making it easier to fall asleep and get up in the morning refreshed.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day, but stop at least two hours before bed. Otherwise, you’ll be waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Helpful tip: Start the morning with a cold glass of water to jump-start your day.
Put down your smartphone or tablet, and journal before bed to quiet your thoughts. When you stare at your electronics before bedtime, the blue light can suppress your body’s natural melatonin production, thus interrupting your sleep.
Utilize white noise to clear your mind. Use a sound app or a noisy fan to quite your surroundings.
Enjoy an Epsom salt bath. To detox and calm your body, dissolve Epsom salt in a warm bath, add baking soda to reduce itchiness and a few drops of essential oil if desired, and soak for twenty minutes.
Apply moringa oil to help with insomnia. Use either aromatherapy or apply on your temples or chest.
Incorporate essential oils into your nighttime routine. Diffuse blends as you prepare for bed or spray a lavender blend on your pillow for a soothing effect.
