Getting A Good Night’s Sleep
Sleep is incredibly important. Without it, the body can’t rest and repair itself. Going without sleep can make any existing health issues worse, plus it can lead to a whole new range of health issues. However, for some, it’s not as easy as getting into bed and falling asleep. People with insomnia often simply can’t sleep. Some end up functioning on only a few hours of sleep every day. It eventually wears them down, plus it leaves their bodies a wreck. Sleep aids can help, but they often have side effects or leave people feeling really off the next day. Fortunately, there are some natural things people can take to help them sleep.
One of the most popular is a melatonin supplement. This is completely natural—the body actually produces melatonin every day. It’s what makes us sleepy. Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland, but synthetic melatonin is exactly the same thing. However, this melatonin only stays in the body for about 15 minutes, so if you can’t fall asleep quickly, it may not help.
Many people who have trouble sleeping drink tea. Chamomile tea or chamomile extract can be incredibly helpful in battling insomnia. Research has shown chamomile to be a proven sleep aid that has absolutely no side effects.
Training your body and mind to sleep can also help. This is called cognitive behavioral therapy, and it involves things like creating a relaxing environment in the bedroom, only using the bed for sleep, and doing some deep breathing before bed to help the muscles relax. This therapy has shown to be successful for some insomniacs, but for others, it hasn’t helped as much.
You may also want to start taking a supplement that contains graviola. Research has shown that a graviola may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
