What are the Reasons for Insomnia and how to cure them naturally?
Avoid Daytime Naps
- People usually rest a little after having lunch, if you take a rest on your bed, you are bound to go to sleep. Don’t think that you are catching the sleep you missed yesterday night. If you dodge your afternoon nap, it will make you fall asleep sooner than you usually go to sleep and will maintain the sleep in a better way.
Eradicate taking alcoholic, caffeine drinks and nicotine:
- Caffeine has long effects, say 24 hours, so the chance of getting sound sleep diminish. It not only decreases sleep but frequently wakes in the night many times and you don’t get a chance to enjoy a sound sleep again.
- Alcohol might be sedative for the first a few hours, but it awakes you in the middle of the night and you keep turning, but the sleep never returns. If you are suffering from asthma problems, better ask your doctor when to take the air through the inhaler, which will minimize any affect on your sleep. So avoid these things and you will get a sound sleep within a few days.
Embrace a daily schedule:
- Try to fix a time when you should hit the bed and at what time you have to wake up. It should be a precise time and don’t keep changing it every third day. Sometimes you don’t feel like waking up, due to one reason or another, but never give up this schedule. Initially, it may look difficult, but later on you will realize its virtues. Do not alter your precise schedule on weekends also, can change a little bit, not exceeding 1 hour. After a few days you will go to sleep soundly.
Begin Exercise Regularly:
- When you begin exercising regularly, your body releases endorphins that help in reducing stress. When stress escapes from your mind, it invites better quality and deep sleep. You must do the cardiovascular exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, such as walking, jogging, biking or swimming. Try doing it in the mornings as endorphins causes the brain stimulation, if these exercises are done within 3 hours of sleep.
Restrict your bedroom activities:
- Beds are made for your sleeping and having sex, don’t spoil their reputation by watching TV, working on your laptop or mobile, listening to the radio or any audio device or reading. Then it becomes difficult for the brain to shut down, by the time you are between the sheets. So, better do all these activities outside your bedroom and leave them over there when you return to your bedroom. It will make you sleep profusely.
Make Sleep Comfortable:
- Make the bedroom a comfortable zone that has a normal temperature, lighting that you are comfortable in and avoid noise. Control all these and you can have a nice and deep sleep, which makes you a smart person the next morning. If you are having a pet in your bedroom, better shift it in another corner of your house, because it can also disturb you while you are sleeping by making some noise.
Eradicate all worries:
- Get all your worries over before you hit the bed. Don’t make any plans about tomorrow. It will be better if you can fix a schedule to make plans for tomorrow only after the dinner, fix a permanent time. The idea is to stop worrying about tomorrow when you are about to fall asleep.
- It will be better to make a list of the jobs about tomorrow, right after you close your office. At least it eliminates some worries. These are very small things, but if taken care of in a précised manner, can reduce your worries to a great extent. You can enjoy having a nice sleep.
