When you were young, you probably hated bedtime. Bedtime meant the end of fun activities like reading, playing with friends, and watching television. It meant having to say good night to your toys and brushing your teeth.
But as you grow older, the idea of falling asleep in a comfortable bed after a long day at work actually seems pretty fantastic. In fact, many people look forward to it.
The sad news is: there are those who experience insomnia. They can’t find restful sleep no matter how hard they try.
Sleep deprivation not only affects your energy, but it can also affect your immune system. It decreases your body’s ability to fight illness.
Here are four natural ways to combat insomnia.
Natural Ways to Combat Insomnia
Eliminate stimulants from your diet such as coffee and alcohol
The caffeine in coffee is great in the morning when you are getting ready to start your day. But late afternoon or evening ingestion of caffeine can hinder or prevent restful sleep.
The same is true with alcohol. While it first seems as though it will help you sleep, the rest is actually limited. Often alcohol leads to frequent arousal a few hours after consumption.
Exercise regularly but at the right time
Establishing a regular exercise routine not only helps with obtaining fitful sleep but also increases the duration.
However, exercising just before going to bed can create the opposite effect. It becomes a stimulant. It is important to limit rigorous activities to at least three hours before you plan to go to bed.
Limit your activities in bed
It is often tempting to take unfinished activities to bed, but you should resist the temptation. Reviewing paperwork while in bed or catching up on the day’s news on a tablet isn’t beneficial to obtaining a relaxed state.
We’ve all been warned of the dangers of blue screen light especially at night. Let’s heed those warnings.
Guided by a hypnotist, individuals are put in a relaxed state where the subconscious mind is accessed. Any blockages are then identified and removed so when the individual returns to a conscious state, they feel refreshed.
Hypnosis is a safe, effective, painless, and natural way to cure many bad habits such as smoking and nail-biting, and debilitating conditions such as anxiety, lack of confidence, and insomnia. No needles or invasive instruments are used. It does not manipulate the individual to exhibit silly or dangerous behavior.
The only requirements are concentration and a willingness to accept the procedure. After just a few hypnosis sessions, individuals will experience noticeable and favorable changes in their sleeping habits such as uninterrupted rest and a significant increase in sleep duration.
