Insomnia is a big problem for many people for no apparent reason medical or psychological they cannot fall asleep easily and once they do staying asleep is a problem. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much science carried out to find out why this happens which coincidentally means that there are no real remedies out there. If you are an insomniac who has tried all the usual recommendations here are some useful, little-known ones that may be of help.
Nap every day
Conventional belief tells us that napping will mess up our sleep at night. It turns out this is not the case. If you make it a habit to take a nap every single day at a scheduled hour early in the afternoon you will find that you sleep better. For it to work you have to stick to a schedule and make sure the nap lasts between 10 and 20 minutes.
Get rid of worries before you fall asleep
One interesting thing about insomniacs is that they don’t stay awake worrying about world peace and how to save the endangered dolphin. Once they go to bed they are occupied by everyday, mundane worries what time do I leave for my meeting tomorrow? Should I go to that party on Saturday? Give yourself time to get rid of all these thoughts 15 minutes before you go to bed. Get a journal and make all the decisions that need to be made and then lie down for sleep without worries in your mind.
Get some early morning sun
When you get some sun as soon as you wake up your body is more ready to sleep when you go to bed more than 14 hours later.
A hot bath keeps you awake
Your body cools down in order for you to sleep. A warm bath has the opposite effect.
Lastly, organize and tidy up your room it helps your mind settle down for better sleep.
