Are you tired of staying awake, with your eyes wide open until the wee hours of the morning, only to fall asleep briefly before dawn? Today you will get the help you need and end your constant shaking and turning at night. It's time to get some sleep.
Insomnia (prolonged insomnia) operates in two main areas, that is, physically and mentally. Physically, insomnia can be caused by overeating or eating late at night, poor circulation or nocturnal occupations or hyperactivity. Mentally, insomnia can be caused by anxiety, worry, fear of a negative occurrence (either consciously or unconsciously) and chronic stress, which of course has a negative effect on the body. Whatever the cause, the constant lack of sleep can be very harmful to health, increasing the risk of accidents during the day, memory loss, heart disease, irritability and more.
Here are some natural treatments that you can try at home, which will surely help you rest a little at night.
Bay leaf tea
The rich and relaxing properties of bay leaves make them an excellent sleep aid. When consumed near bedtime, bay leaves have a mildly sedating effect on the central nervous system, thus reducing anxiety, promoting relaxation and inducing sleep. They can also be used to aid digestion and can relieve episodes of indigestion and gas. To make this tea, boil three to four medium-sized leaves in two cups of water. When it is warm, drink the tea one hour before bedtime.
Soursop leaf tea
Home to tropical regions, soursop is an exotic fruit and its leaves contain many medicinal properties. In the area of sleep, such as bay leaves, soursop leaves are also slightly sedative and, therefore, can reduce anxiety and nervousness, promote relaxation and induce sleep. Soursop leaves are also useful to aid digestion and boost the immune system. To make this tea, boil three to four leaves in two cups of water. When it is warm, drink the tea one hour before bedtime.
Hot foot soak
A foot bath is a reliable technique that helps relax and detoxify the body, improve circulation, reduce high blood pressure and relieve stress. When Epsom salts are added to the foot bath, the magnesium in these salts is absorbed through the skin, which promotes relaxation in the muscles and blood vessels and reduces inflammation and pain. It is quite healing for the body and mind. To make your own footbath, use a container that is large enough so you can comfortably rest both feet. Fill the bowl with very warm water (as hot as you can stand) until the water covers at least your ankles. Dissolve? cup Epsom salts in the water and soak your feet in the sink for 15 minutes. It is highly recommended that you drink a hot cup of bay leaf or soursop tea while soaking your feet.
Find ways to de-stress
Your body will always reflect the state of your mind. When your mind is not at rest, neither will your body be at rest. In combination with the above remedies, you must find ways to relieve your stress. This can include moderate daily exercise, retreating from noisy and aggravating environments and creating a peaceful atmosphere where you live and work, frequent prayers and meditation, massage, writing, reading and more. Whatever helps you relax, make it a daily habit and will work wonders when you go to bed at night.
I am sure that these remedies will help you in your search for a good night's sleep. Best wishes on your trip to better health.
