Basically this is when you have difficulty falling asleep or when you wake up in the middle of the night or when you have non-restful sleeps and early morning awakening. Some of us have experienced this and it’s not pleasing at all cause we all want to sleep well and get that beauty sleep without using any pills. We have all been told that insomnia can cause the symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress etc worsen. So I’ll be sharing some few tips that i use to help me overcome insomnia without medication.
I have came up with an exercise routine whereby I exercise in the morning for atleast 30 minutes in a day. You can also do it in the evening depending on what suits you best. I do yoga mostly.
Every morning i wake up, I have a routine of opening my blinds and windows, and when I’m done i head to my balcony to get some natural light exposure. I also get some in the afternoon depending on the weather. During dark winter days you can try using a light box first thing in the morning to help your brain wake up and regulate your body’s rhythms. Also make your sleeping hours constant every night.
I have established a regular bedtime routine where i take a warm bath before bed and I make sure that my sleep environment is pleasant and relaxing, that is i ensure that my rooms temperature is okay and small things that like my pillow are comfortable to sleep on.
Try it also.
Let’s help each other get through this.
