Can Alternative Medicine Help My Sleeping Troubles?

It is very important in every person’s life to get around eight hours of sleep every night. It is not only important to get your rest and be able to go to work the next morning but it is also very important for your general health. At night when you are asleep, your body has the busiest time of the day. It is recovering from the day before, making new cells, breaking of free radicals, renewing your skin, recoverimg muscle tissue after a hard work out. You may be asleep but your body definitely isn’t. In order for your body to fully recover from you living your life the previous day, a certain amount of time is required. You may be able to go for weeks in a row on just five hours of sleep every night, this doesn’t mean your body has had the time to fully recover and it automatically falls behind on schedule, having health issues as a consequence.

A lot of people don’t sleep eight hours every night. This can be because of a variety of reasons. It can be that they are stressed, too much caffeine, too much sugar or preoccupied. Luckily there are some very easy remedies to help you to not only get a good night's sleep, but also the kind of deep rest in your sleep which your body really needs.

If you are suffering from some kind of insomnia, you really have to work on improving your sleeping habits. It is very important to stick to a regular bed time and a regular time to get up in the morning. Even on weekends! Of course you can add an extra hour, but try not to sleep in too late, because this will disturb your routine. You also have to bring rest and peace into your bedroom. This means you only use your bedroom for sex and sleep. No working in the bedroom and no television. You have to create an environment which is comfortable, dark, quiet and fresh.

During the day you have all kinds of habits which have a direct effect on your sleeping habits. Cut back on the caffeine, spend some time outdoors and exercise on a regular basis – these all help to improve your sleeping habits. Because stress is a very big problem among people with sleeping problems it is important to create some type of stress release period in your bedtime routine.

  • Before you go to bed you can schedule a yoga session. When you exercise some gentle yoga poses before bedtime, it helps to relax your muscles and to ease your mind;
  • If you are not a yoga fan, you might consider using progressive muscle relaxation. This means that before you go to bed, you slowly tense and relax every muscle group you have in your body. You start with your toes and then you work it up slowly ending with the muscles in your face. Add some deep breathing exercises and you are ready to sleep.
  • Another exercise for bedtime is meditation. Before you go to bed try to take as little as 10 minutes where you sit quietly and relax, completely letting the everyday worries go and just focus on your breathing.
  • When you visualize yourself in a place that gives you peace and makes you feel happy, this can really relax you. Close your eyes and picture yourself in this peaceful surroundings. This can take your mind of your everyday worries and relax you.
  • There are some essential oils which contain sedative qualities which make you sleepy. One of these is lavender. Try to take a bath with lavender oil before you go to bed or sprinkle a drop or two on your pillow.
These techniques have proven themselves and are certainly worth a try, before you start getting health issues or pop some sleeping pills. If these techniques don’t work for you, ask your friends and family for tips, there are a lot of remedies out there. It is just finding the right one for you.
