Natural home remedies to help you sleep easy:)

  1. Stick to a schedule.  Sticking to a schedule allows your body to set its internal rhythm so you can get up at the time you want, consistently, every single day. Also, make sure you try to keep the same schedule on weekends too, to prevent feeling overly tired.
  2. Sleep only at night. Avoid daytime sleep if possible. Daytime naps tend to hinder sleep needed for nighttime.. Limit daytime sleep to 20-minute, power naps.
  3. Exercise. It’s actually known to help you sleep better. Your body uses the sleep period to recover its muscles and joints that have been exercised. Twenty to thirty minutes of exercise every day can help you sleep, but be sure to exercise in the morning or afternoon. Exercise stimulates the body and aerobic activity before bedtime may make falling asleep more difficult.
  4. Taking a hot shower or bath before bed helps bring on sleep because they can relax tense muscles.
  5. Avoid eating just before bed. Give yourself at least 2 hours from when you eat to when you sleep. This allows for digestion to happen (or at least start) well before you go to sleep so your body can rest well during the night, rather than churning away your food.
  6. Avoid caffeine.
  7. Read a  book. It takes you to a whole new world if you really get into it. And then take some time to ponder over the book as you fall asleep.
  8. Have the room slightly cooler.
  9. Sleep in silence. 
  10. Avoid alcohol before bedtime. It’s a depressant; although it may make it easier to fall asleep, it causes you to wake up during the night. As alcohol is digested your body goes into withdrawal from the alcohol, causing nighttime awakenings and often nightmares for some people.
I hope this article helps everyone get to bed a little easier tonight:)   Kyles Natural Signing out!!
