Insomnia Cure: 9 Tips to Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Insomnia cure

Want to get better sleep and cure insomnia naturally? Here are nine tips to help you get a good night’s sleep.

#1 Turn down the temperature. Most people will sleep better when the temperatures are cool. Set your thermostat for around sixty five degrees. You’ll sleep better and you’ll save money on heating too.

#2 Listen to soothing sounds that create relaxation. Sleep sounds can block out the thoughts and stresses of the day and help to calm the mind making sleep easier to achieve.

#3 Buy a firm mattress. Mattresses that are too soft often cause back problems, numbness and other discomforts. In fact a poor mattress can lead to insomnia itself. We spend 8 hours a night, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, that’s approximately 2900 hours of sleep a year, a good mattress is worth it!

#4 Buy a good sleep pillow. Depending on how you sleep you may need a suitable pillow. Do you sleep on your stomach? On your back? On your side? Find a pillow that keeps your neck in line with your body. Soft pillows may not provide enough support and pillows that are too hard may prop your neck up to high. Again insomnia can be aggravated by inappropriate mattresses or pillows.

#5 Don’t sleep in. One of the keys to good sleep is a regular sleep and wake schedule. Go to bed and wake at the same time each day. Try this on weekends as well or at least keep sleeping in to a reasonable amount of time, only about 1 extra hour.

#6 Get rid of the illuminated objects. Do you have an alarm clock? Do you keep electronics in your bedroom? Turn them away from your bed so the light doesn’t disrupt your sleep. Also, get rid of all electronics that make noise or have a direct impact on your sleep.

#7 Naps can be a good thing. Especially power naps. However, if you’re struggling with sleep then skip the mid day nap. If you’re tired when it’s time to go to bed you’ll have an easier time falling asleep. If you do nap keep it to a minimum, if they are too long it will be harder to sleep at night. Insomnia can be caused by the simple fact that you are not tired enough, if this is the case then skip the nap.

#8 Create a bedtime routine. Do the same thing every night. Create a step by step bedtime process. Begin with turning off the television and other electronics well before bedtime. Practice relaxation techniques (see tip #2). Take a warm bath or read a book. Repeat your bedtime routine each night. A bedtime routine can help your body adapt better and be more prepared for the quality sleep you need.

#9 Use sleeping pills as a last resort. Over the counter sleeping pills can be effective but they can lead to a dependency. They are not the best choice to cure insomnia. Try natural remedies such as natural melatonin first.

Finally, try to avoid night time interruptions. This can be difficult if you have young children or high levels of stress. The more you’re able to relax and accept the occasional stresses and sleep challenges the easier it’ll be to fall back to sleep. Some nights will be better than others, on the difficult nights try some of the recommendations above.

Sleep is important to your mental and physical health. Insomnia can take a very negative toll on your life. Think about the nine tips, do they support good sleep? If not, make changes to your lifestyle and try to achieve an insomnia cure naturally. A good night’s sleep is too important to not give it your best effort.
