Ask your significant other for a quick massage right before bed. A massage can help your body relax enough to get the sleep you really need. It doesn't need to be a full body massage, and it doesn't need to be long. A short 2 minute neck rub is sometimes all that's necessary.

 

Taking Melatonin may help you get you back to sleep. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that is available in a supplement form. This hormone helps regulate the human sleep-wake cycle (circadian rhythm), causes drowsiness and lowers body temperature. Man-made Melatonin supplements are available at many health food and drug stores.

 

You should start shopping for aromatherapy treatments for your insomnia if you haven't considered it yet. Purchase some potpourri or some candles that have soothing and soft scents that you can put near the bed. Aromatherapy is a known winner in stress reduction and busting up insomnia. Attempt something a bit light, such as lavender, and you'll be able to sleep a bit more easily.

 

Keep a diary by your bed if you've been experiencing problems with insomnia. Often it's due to stress and other problems in life, so writing about them can alleviate the burden you're feeling. Just flick the light on quickly if you can't sleep, and write out everything you're going through emotionally. This should really take the load off!

 

Do not sleep on your stomach. Doing so makes it difficult for you to sleep well because it causes pressure to be placed on your lungs. As a result, you will not breathe as deeply during the night. In addition, it could cause you to have back and neck issues.

 

Yes, drinking can make you feel sleepy and even knock you out, but when you wake up at 3am with a massive headache, you still won't get a good night's sleep. Avoid drinking if you have sleep issues as it can cause insomnia, frequent bathroom trips and a horrible hangover.

 

Get enough exercise. Exercise can help you cut stress by releasing endorphins into your system. That can help you sleep more deeply at night. However, avoid exercise within 3 or 4 hours before bed, because endorphins can keep you awake if you exercise too close to your bedtime. Give it time.

 

Think of something pleasant. You might have a lot of random images passing through in your brain, but take control of those. Start visualizing very peaceful places. You can even count fuzzy sheep if you want. The most important thing is that you are encouraging your brain to think about something that may relax you.

 

When sleep is elusive and you feel like there is no end in sight, these techniques will guide you through it all. Use each one by one until you find the solution which fits your needs. You should be sleeping like a baby night after night again in no time.
