Do you find nights long and getting a good sleep very tough? Pills might give you a relief for a short period but in the long run they are harmful. So, below are simple ways to make you sleep like a baby! Remember, sleep is a time for our bodies to rejuvenate and heal. This makes sleep important and very necessary. Remember, studies say that we spend one third of our lives in bed.
An hour before you take a shower, massage your body with oil meant for muscle relaxation, joint pains or just regular body massage oil. Take a mildly hot shower after this. After the shower, drink a warm glass of milk mixed with honey. You could also eat dates. This will not only comfort your body but will make you feel relaxed throughout the day and will make you want to hit the bed as soon as you find one.
You could also try breathing exercises or just simply close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing rhythm so that you can clear your thoughts and not have anything bothering you before you go to sleep.
You could also soak your feet in warm water mixed with relaxing oils before going to bed. Pat your feet dry and massage your feet with a lotion or a foot cream. Relaxed feet make you feel peaceful and comfortable which will help you fall asleep quickly.
If you would for any reason still do not get proper sleep consult an Ayurvedic Doctor.
