THINGS TO TRY WHEN YOU CAN’T SLEEP

THINGS TO TRY WHEN YOU CAN’T SLEEP


When you can’t sleep, it’s always best to have a back-up strategy. We’ve got options for you to try. As you know, sleeping is a very important part on your day. It boosts your energy and keeps you healthy.

 

READ: 

Get into a comfortable position and read. Don’t worry about remembering the details of the story or getting to a certain chapter, just take it in until you feel yourself getting sleepy.

LISTEN TO MUSIC: 

Listening to simple, acoustic, minimal percussion music can be perfect for setting the mood for sleep.

USE LAVENDER OIL:

Rub some lavender oil on your neck before going bed. If you are feeling particularly rest-less, place a few drops on your pillow too.

TRY AN AUDIOBOOK: 

Choose your favorite audiobook and let the soothing sound quiet your mind. 

DOWNLOAD A MEDITATION APP:

Take deep breaths and let your thoughts drift away. Imagine doing things that you enjoy, like napping on the beach or getting a massage.

CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS: 

Do not think about having insomnia. Relax and clear your head.

PUT YOUR LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL 

This position helps to calm your central nervous system. You can also do some leg and arm exercises to release tension. 

WRITE: 

Write a journal with your thoughts, feelings, and desires. 

DRINK WARM MILK WITH HONEY: 

A warm drink can soothe your body and help it prepare for rest. It really works!

KEEP YOUR FEET UNCOVERED:

Research says that keeping your toes cool makes you more likely to sleep. 

COVER YOUR EYES:

Fold a wet towel and warm it in the microwave for a few seconds. Place the towel over your eyes. This will give you a relaxing feeling.
