Have you been having problems with insomnia lately? I have had problems with it myself recently. I'm going to give you six easy techniques you can try.
Stop Staying Out Late on Weekends
When dealing with insomnia, it’s important your sleeping hours are on a regular schedule – yes you heard it right you cannot stay out all night on the weekends and expect to be back on a regular schedule come Monday. Once you get a schedule going you’ve got an internal clock in you that’ll help convince your body that it’s time to rest. You’ll have an easier time beating insomnia if you allow this clock to guide you and listen to it when it tells you to sleep.
If you want to avoid sleep issues, your bedroom should be an oasis of comfort. You will feel more sleep and relaxed better when you keep noise levels low and darken the room. Bright displays on alarm clocks should be avoided. Get a decent mattress that supports your body well. Oh and also make sure your sheets are clean!
Keep Light Out
Keep anything that brightens or illuminates your room out of your bedroom. This means glowing Elvis clocks, night lights, or televisions. This light can stimulate your brain, stress your body, and make your insomnia even worse. Make your room as dark as it can be so that your body takes the hint the rest is needed.
The stress of everyday activities can be a major cause of insomnia – yes your boss screaming at you throughout the day does not help you sleep – big surprise. Before you get into bed and to release some of the worries and stressful thoughts of the day, take some time. Practice deep breathing exercises, clear your mind, and make a list of things you will do the next day to release all those worries from your mind.
Dietary Supplements Like CBD
I personally use CBD tincture oils from NWBud. It’s an easy way for me to relax and get my mind right. There are different brands and types as well as milligrams. If you are unsure what kind to take then I would recommend the 1000mg dosage. That works best for me. The lower milligrams never seems to be strong enough.
Women are more prone to insomnia than men and this could mean menopause is the reason. Fluctuating hormones and hot flashes can keep a menopausal woman awake at night. Talk to your doctor, and see if hormone replacement therapy might help you sleep better, if this is the case.
There you have it! Try these remedies and see if they help.
