In order to get more sleep you will have to make it a habit and routine. When our bodies are tired it can feel difficult to unwind, especially with a hectic work schedule. When we get the rest that we need it prevents mood fluctuations and daily fatigue. There are plenty of ways to fall asleep faster and it’s all about what works best for your body. Make shut-eye a priority and you will benefit from a strengthened immune system and sustainable energy.
One effective way to fall asleep quickly is by changing your environment. By dimming down the lights and turning off the television it will increase the room’s comfort level. Your body will begin to fall asleep naturally as it adjusts to the comfort of the room.
Another great way to induce sleep is by drinking a warm beverage before getting into bed. Hot liquids increase the temperature in your body. When the body is exposed to warmth it naturally produces melatonin (the chemical responsible for sleep.) Start drinking decaffeinated tea before going to bed for best results.
Although coffee helps us to wake up in the morning, it isn’t great to have late in the afternoon. Caffeine will keep you up at night and increase the amount of fatigue you feel the next morning – which can cause you to reach for more caffeine. If you have it often, try to avoid it in the late afternoon so that your body can adjust.
One of the main reasons why people have a difficult time falling asleep at night is because they have a sedentary lifestyle. In order for the body to feel tired you must exert physical energy. Do more cardio workouts and you’ll have no problem getting to bed at a decent time.
There are audio recordings that help induce sleep by showing you how to relax all of the muscles in the body. Half of not being able to fall asleep is because of tension. When the entire body releases adrenalin you won’t feel so restless in the evening. After a long day it’s common to feel tired and you may be unable to get the sleep that you need because your body is still in ‘go-mode.’ Meditation is one of the most efficient ways to remain calm and get to bed at a reasonable time.
Try using a melatonin supplement. It can be purchased at your local drug store. They are 100% natural and work effectively because they replicate the melatonin that is produced in the body. You can expect to fall asleep within 30-60 minutes. You won’t get addicted to using the supplement and it doesn’t cause you to oversleep, as long as you take the recommended amount. There are various natural supplements that induce sleep and do so without causing a physical reliance or side effects.
