Tips on How To Fight and Cure Insomnia

Insomnia is a big problem for a lot of people in America. Many prescriptions have been released to deal with this problem. Some of them have very dangerous side effects like Ambien, and Lunesta. Some of them make you sleep walk, or even do things that you don't exactly mean to do while you are asleep. The other side effects I won't list here, but this post is about steps you can take to help you get a better night sleep. I have been troubled by insomnia most of my life, that is why I am now currently a programmer. Here are some tips that I use that may benefit you and your loss of sleep.

  1. Don't drink or take anything with caffeine past 3 in the afternoon. That will tend to keep anyone up longer than they would like. Sometimes people underestimate caffeine and drink coffee any hour of the day. This will generally cause inability to sleep.
  2. If you cant sleep try getting out of the bed and walking around for a while. Sitting in a bed while you are sleepless will only make you more stressed and anxious.
  3. Take a really hot shower or bath, and try to use aromatherapy soaps. Make sure to keep the lights dim bright lights make you want to be more alert. Lighting candles instead could even help with aromatherapy.
  4. There are essential oils that can help you relax as well. You can try adding a couple of drops to your pillow or even your bath. Your hair might wake up extra oily, but hey at least you will get a good nights sleep.
  5. Take an herbal supplement like Valerian Root, chamomile, catnip, lime flower or even some lavender. Another great way is L-Tryptophan which is an amino acid, and Melatonin. Some of these ingredients could even be found in some relaxation teas. Tea is another great way to take in these all natural ingredients to induce sleep.
  6. Relax and meditate to some soft music, or relaxing sounds. They sell CDs and even tracks on iTunes for your iPod.
  7. Try reading a book, or magazine, or anything! Reading is a great way to combat insomnia because it naturally makes your eyes heavy, and your brain exhausted.
I hope these tips help you fight the dreaded insomnia monster. Remember, the worst thing you can do when you can't sleep, is continue to lay there and think about pointless stuff. Take the initiative to make it easier for your body. That way you get to sleep faster with a little help from one of these tips.
