by , 08 July 2013

According to FSP Health, not getting enough sleep can leave you feeling disorientated, unable to concentrate, emotional and anxious, not to mention TOTALLY exhausted. What's worse is that insomnia may have serious consequences on your health in the long-term too and leave you more vulnerable to illness and disease. But you don't have to put up with these problems any longer. Use these seven tips to get a good night's sleep…

If you’re struggling to drift away to ‘slumber land’ at night, there are simple methods you can use to sleep peacefully at night.

And the good thing is you don’t have to buy a single drug.

Seven simple tips to help you beat insomnia

#1: Expose yourself to morning light for at least ten to 20 minutes a day. Exposure helps shorten the sleep cycle so that when you go to bed at night it’s easier to fall asleep, says Boost Your Brain Power.

#2: Exercise will definitely give you a deeper sleep. The best times to workout are in the late afternoon or early evening, but not within three hours of bedtime.

#3: Avoid caffeine in any form (fizzy drinks, chocolate, coffee and some teas) after dinner.

#4: Be careful of taking high doses of some of the energising supplements discussed in this report, they can cause restless sleep.

#5: Stop mental activity at least one hour before bed time and allow your mind to switch to fun reading or watching a comedy. This’ll help you unwind and avoid disturbing dreams.

#6: Using earplugs can significantly improve your ability to get deep, uninterrupted sleep.

#7:Boost Your Brain Power suggests you try this relaxation technique when you get into bed: Lie on your back, shake and loosen a leg and foot. Take a few, slow, deep breaths by expanding your belly. Then shake and loosen the other leg and foot and take more relaxed breaths.

Repeat for both arms, shoulders, neck and facial muscles. Before you know it, you’ll be drifting into a deep slumber.

There you have it. Use these simple tips to help you get you get a good night’s sleep.
