Insomnia is anything but fun, and relying on sleeping pills to get some rest every night is anything but healthy...
Large American pharmaceutical companies have poured untold millions (or perhaps billions) of dollars into developing and marketing insomnia drugs, and their drive to find the magic pill has largely paid off.
Big Pharma R&D teams know what virtually everyone knows instinctively: Good sleep is hard to come by, and insomnia can be a maddening affliction. For those who don't want to ingest drugs (great decision on your part), these simple, time-tested tips can boost the odds for sound sleep.
Three effective ways to banish insomnia without drugs
Numerous studies confirm that consistent strenuous aerobic activity tires you out in a way that establishes restful sleep
patterns that your body will replicate night after night.
Don’t do the exercise
, whether it be walking, jogging, or elliptical, shortly before going to bed. That will raise the heart rate and boost the stress
hormones. Mid-day or morning is best. Your body will remember, and your biological clock will fall into sync.
“Take 2 for the deepest relaxation.”
As I took my seat on the plane, nervous about the 14-hour flight to Tokyo ahead of me… I opened the bottle, took two and tried to relax.
I hardly had to try. My worries washed away, I sunk into a deep sleep, only waking a few times and then easily falling back into my slumber. And when I arrived I felt refreshed, peaceful, and focused.
What IS this!? This mysterious breakthrough is unlike anything I’ve seen in over 20 years of natural research.
Available for the first time in South Africa — it promises the best night’s sleep of your life — and the wild thing is… that’s only the beginning of what it can do!
#2: Turn your room into a sleep haven
Keep it slightly cooler than you think, turn off the TV (or take it out of the room), and find a way to keep things quiet.
If a dog up the street is driving you insane with intermittent barking, spend the money on a sound machine to generate white noise. Airline pilots and truckers who keep odd hours have used these devices for years, and the general public can benefit from their experience.
#3: Avoid taking naps during the day
Advice on the value of so-called “power naps” has varied wildly over the past decade, but the latest thinking on the topic dictates that naps can disrupt sound night-time sleeping.
Ultimately, if you conquer insomnia and get a good night’s rest, you won’t need a nap during the day, and your productivity will increase.
Now go on and rest up! Sweet dreams.
