6 Low-Cost 'Get Some Sleep' Strategies

Dec 23, 2007
Why is it that so many people view sleeping as a luxury rather than a necessity? By thinking as such, it has been so easy for many people to market products that really break the bank. They have people convinced that they need to spend an arm and a leg in order to simply lie in peace, putting head to pillow, and fall asleep gently and soundly for the whole night. Don't pay ridiculous prices when you can try these tips first to combat insomnia.

Nice and Cozy Jammies
Sure, that teddy is sexy and exotic, but is it warm enough for those winter nights? And yes those button up pajamas are cute, but do they fit comfortably? Instead of focusing on the style of the pajamas, find ones that cover a good portion of your body, and are not binding throughout the night. If you cut off your circulation or spend the night shivering, then certainly your sleeping trouble will increase.

An Extra Pillow Never Hurt
During the night, our neck should be well-cushioned so that our head can rest comfortably. And if you have enough pillows for your head, you may want to try putting a pillow between your legs to align your body properly, helping you to doze off much easier.

Aromatherapy
Inexpensive AND pleasant - it just doesn't get any better than that. This can come in many forms, including sachets under the pillow, sleeping mist that you spritz on the linens, air fresheners, etc. The way that it works is that the pleasant odor reaches the sensory nerves in the brain, signaling a calming effect. The brain can then slowly relax, and tell the rest of the body to turn off and go to bed.

A Little Bubble Ain't No Trouble
When you are looking for some relaxation to prevent insomnia, look no further than running a nice warm bath at night. This will be much more soothing than a shower and will help you get your mind off all the worries of the day. Also, a bath will help to slightly elevate your body temperature. When the body is a bit warmer, it does not have to work as hard, and will have you feeling sleepy in no time. And bubble bath does not cost that much.

Some Light Music or Sounds
Of course, blaring music and the television can certainly contribute to your insomnia, but not all sounds are bad for you. There are plenty of inexpensive CDs on the market that specialize in producing pleasant sounds like the ocean or just peaceful string instruments to help calm you. You'll be lulled off into slumber land in no time.

Meditation
Now here is something that will help you with your trouble sleeping and not cost you a penny. In the comfort of your own home, you can find ways to center yourself mentally in order to clear away your worries and be able to lie down and fall asleep in peace. Perhaps you may try yoga and stretch everything out, or you can light a candle and write things down that are on your mind. Whatever the case, this may help you to be stress free so you can rest.
