1. Try Lavender Oil


Lavender is a flower which is so well-known because of its specific smell.

Do you know what I mean?

This flower is so appreciated for its perfume and properties that it is included in many beauty products.

However, these are not the reasons why I included it on our list.

Actually, lavander oil is also a good natural remedy for your sleep problems. [1]

How come? Well, lavander has some benefits you may not have heard of:

  • improves the quality of your sleep
  • has a mild sedative effect
  • helps you relax your body

So, lavender oil is definitely one of the best essential oils for you!

How should you use it?

Well, I can give you two options.

You can either massage your body with it or you can use it for aromatherapy.

Let's start with the first option, massage.

Did you know that massage is also beneficial for you? No?!

It definitely is a great way of relaxing your body. 

However, you will have some even better results if you massage your body using lavender oil.

To make sure that you know how to use it, I'm going to give you some instructions:

  1. First of all, you need to dilute the lavender oil with a carrier oil (almond, coconut or olive oil).
  2. So, add 2-3 drops of lavender oil to 20 drops of carrier oil.
  3. Apply the mixture on your skin.
  4. Massage the area for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Allow the oil to soak into your skin.

It is very important to dilute lavender oil with a carrier oil.

So you need to follow the instructions accordingly.

If you do that, I'm sure that you will see some improvements when it comes to your insomnia.

How often should you massage your body?

Everyday or, better say, every evening.

It is essential to do that if you want to have the best results.

Now, let's move on to the second option, aromatherapy.

Here, things are a little bit easier.

All you need to do is to put 2-3 drops of lavender oil on your pillow before you go to bed.

It is as simple as that!

So, whichever option you choose, make sure that you use it daily, without skipping a day.

If you do that, you will definitely manage to fall asleep easier and faster.

SUMMARY

It can help you fall asleep faster and it certainly improves the quality of your sleep.

So, you can either use it for massage or for aromatherapy. 

 

 


2. Passion Flower Tea


Have you ever heard of passion flower?

Do you know why it was named as such?

Well, it's because it is believed to resemble the crown of thorns that Jesus wore.

So, somehow it refers to Jesus' passion. Interesting, right?

You probably couldn't guess the meaning behind its name, could you?

However, this is not what I want to tell you about it.

Of course, this information is interesting, but we are talking about something else.

Actually, this flower is used as a remedy for many sleep problems

Thanks to its so many benefits, it can help you fall asleep faster.

Let's see which are those benefits:

3. High-Quality Supplement


If you are dealing with sleep problems, taking a qualitative supplement is a must!

That's because such a product can really help you sleep better.

However, as you probably have noticed, there are so many sleep supplements on the market.

Which one is the best one? Which one really works?

Well, deciding which supplement to take can be tricky.

Some supplements might promise to help you, but in the end they turn out to be just a scam.

So, what should you choose then?

Fortunately, I know a high-quality product that will definitely help you fall asleep faster.

Let me explain these benefits more!

Sleep Support Plus can boost the production of melatonin.

Also, this hormone is the one that makes you fall asleep.

Basically, by increasing melatonin production, this supplement helps you fall asleep.

Moreover, it doesn't cause significant side effects, which is great, isn't it?

Let me tell you another secret!

Many sleep supplements work by sedating you, maybe you already know that.

“Is that bad?” you may ask. Well, yes, it is. 

That's because when you are sedated, you don't have a deep and qualitative sleep.

So, even if you managed to sleep the whole night, you might still feel tired in the morning.

Luckily, this product works in a different way:

  • leads to a regular sleep pattern
  • boosts sleep sensation at night (not during the day)
  • leads to a deep and healthy sleep (without nightmares)

6. Magnesium-Rich Diet


We talked a little bit about magnesium when I mentioned Epsom salt.

I told you then that magnesium is very important for those who have sleep problems. [3]

Actually, Epsom salt is not the only way of getting the magnesium that you need.

There is another natural way of doing that.

You can eat foods that are rich in magnesium.

Which are those? Well, if I were to mention all of them, the list would be way too long.

As I don't want to bore you, I will write down just a part of them.

With what should we start?

Hm… Let's start with nuts and seeds.

These terms are too broad, aren't they? So, let's see exactly what nuts and seeds you should eat.

What do you say about almonds? 

You can find them in many dishes like:

  • desserts
  • salads
  • pasta
  • soups

That's because they are both healthy and delicious. 

Also, they are rich in magnesium and other nutriets like fibers or vitamin E.

If you don't like almonds, you can eat cashews, which are also a good source of magnesium.

They are not as versatile as almonds, but they definitely make a great snack.

Other nuts that you can try are peanuts.

Do you like peanut butter?

If your answer is yes, then a slice of toast and some peanut butter makes the perfect breakfast for you.

When it comes to seeds, pumpkin seeds are the best ones for. 

It is fall, so finding pumpkin seeds is quite an easy job right now.

Next, we will talk about avocado, a fruit loved by many people.

In fact, avocado has so many benefits:

  • rich in magnesium
  • a good source of potassium, vitamin B and vitamin K
  • high in fibers

Avocado is also quite versatile and it can be prepared in many ways.

It is often included in salads or desserts.

Because we talked about breakfast, I have to say that you can eat your toast with some avocado and a little bit of salt.

We stick to green foods a little bit more, and I will tell you some details about spinach.

You can love it or hate it, but spinach is definitely healthy.

That's because it also has many beneficial properties:

  • a good source of magnesium and calcium
  • rich in vitamins like vitamin A and C
  • contains iron and folic acid

Spinach can be eaten both raw or cooked.

Moreover, it is an essential ingredient for different salads.

As I saved the best for last, I want to tell you about another food, or better say dessert, that is good for you. 

That is chocolate. Did you know that chocolate is a great source of magnesium?

Actually, it is true! However, make sure that you don't eat it very late at night. 

That's because it contains caffeine, which might not let you fall asleep.

So, you do have many foods from which to choose what you like best.

Also, make sure that you include magnesium in your daily meals and you will surely sleep better.

A good sleep leads to a good health, remember that!

For those who like to express their feelings and thoughts, writing might be the best solution.

You can write down your thoughts:

  • on a piece of paper
  • in a beautiful notebook
  • in a diary

However, try to avoid writing on a computer. This might not be very helpful for you.

Before going to sleep, it is better to stay away from your computer.

A short walk in a park or outdoors is perfect for you.

Up to now, people were often discouraged from working out before sleep.
