3 Quick Ways to Help You Overcome Insomnia
17 Oct 2019 2 Min Read by Lucid

Insomnia is a common condition that prevents you from falling and staying asleep. Most of us have experienced at least one night where the hours creep by, and you just can’t seem to trick your mind into letting you sleep. It’s miserable. To prevent this from happening in the future, we’ve compiled a list of easily implemented lifestyle changes to help you and your family combat Insomnia when it strikes. 

 

Stick to a Routine

Constantly altering the time at which you sleep/wake on a daily basis can greatly increase your chance of falling victim to insomnia. We recommend trying to implement a window of time every night that you are going to be in bed and stick to it. Allowing your body’s natural clock to align with your schedule will help you have a better chance of getting enough sleep.

 

Prioritize Diet and Exercise

Most of us think about improving our diets and increasing the amount of exercise we get for a variety of reasons. One reason you may want to add to your list is how what you eat and how much you exercise plays a role in how well you sleep.

Try and pay close attention to what you eat/drink as you prepare for bed. A little too much caffeine, alcohol, or sugar could be the thing stealing your precious sleep. You should also be cautious about limiting your water intake. It sounds crazy to tell you to not drink too much water; however, limiting your water at night can help prevent multiple trips to the bathroom that could potentially steal precious REM sleep. 

If you aren’t very active throughout the day, it can be really hard to fall asleep because your body just isn’t tired. Use your inability to sleep as motivation to hit the gym and earn a well-deserved rest. 

 

Create a Relaxing Environment

Transform your bedroom into a relaxing environment conducive to sleep. You can do this by upgrading an old mattress or testing different types of pillows. We recommend trying aromatherapy pillows infused with soothing scents like lavender to help invite a calming atmosphere into your bedroom. 

Also, fight the temptation to bring your phone, laptop, and television into this most hallowed space. Aside from piquing your interest, these devices emit a blue light that tricks your brain into thinking it is supposed to be asleep. 

 

 

If these natural remedies don’t do the trick, seek out your primary care physician, and take the necessary next steps to start getting proper sleep.
