Seven Secrets to Wiping Out Insomnia

Oct 8, 2007
Below are seven secrets to wipe out insomnia that the vast majority of people throughout the world can use. The best part of all - the tips are nice and simple. Here we go.

Clear Your Head
Worry and anxiety are common causes of restlessness and sleep deprivation. If you are constantly focusing on all of the issues of the day, or even week, then it is more than likely that you will not get a full eight hours of sleep. You have to just tell yourself that you cannot change the events, but only look ahead to the next day. Think of something that you have to look forward to, and focus on the positive. It will be much easier for your nervous system to tell your brain to shut down when it is feeling good than when it is feeling upset.

Finish Important Tasks the Night Before
Though it is not always possible to do everything in one day, complete the tasks that you know weigh the heaviest on your mind. Pay bills, prepare lists, write reports that need immediate attention. Procrastination is the mind's worst enemy, so alleviate stress so you are able to rest much easier.

Avoid Heavy Eating Before Bedtime
Regardless of the calorie debate, it is not healthy to have a large amount of food at night. Even something as seemingly harmless as a banana is not good to have when you are trying to relax at night. The body automatically begins the digestion process upon consumption, forcing the body to work, regardless of time. The longer it works to break down any food, the harder it will be for it to come down to a relaxed state, relaxed enough for you to have the urge to fall asleep for hours.

Cut Out Caffeine!
So many of us like our cup of coffee or can of soda with a nice evening meal, but this will prevent you from enjoying a night of restful sleep. Your insomnia could have a great deal to do with your consumption of these beverages. Because of the power of caffeine, the brain stays stimulated for a long period of time, and so the signal to the nervous system is never sent to shut off the brain. You will be awake until the effects wind down.

Create a Comfortable Environment
From nice clean sheets to cutting out external noises to putting on your favorite pajamas, you need to be relaxed completely. If you are unsettled in your current sleeping environment, then all of your current sleep problems will not go away. You have to ensure that your body is at ease in order to doze off.

Take a Hot Shower or Bath
While some people take a shower in the morning in order to wake up, a soothing soak in the tub could be the perfect solution to help you rest. The brain is signaled toward resting when the body temperature is slightly elevated. This can easily be accomplished by using warm water to help you totally relax.

Aromatherapy
What better way to be lulled off into a deep sleep than with a wonderful scent? Top off your perfect sleeping environment with a gentle spray on your sheets that will not overwhelm. From that point on, you will have nothing but sweet dreams.
