Tea, music, and sheep counting… you try night after night, but sleep comes only slowly, and sometimes not even at all? We have already talked about the negative effects of sleep deprivation in one of our previous articles, so it’s time to take action against insomnia. Can a regular regime help you fall asleep? Perhaps we can give you some advice…
Take a walk:
Movement and natural outdoor light – helps the release of serotonin and melatonin. We bet you start yawning even before you come back from the evening walk.
Learn to breathe deeply:
A stressed insomniac breathes shallowly and briefly. If you deepen your breath, as if your body is resting, you go to bed more calm and can fall asleep easier.
Turn off your mobile or TV:
Your phone, iPad, laptop – all these devices shine with blue light that prevents the body from producing melatonin because it starts to think it’s actually daytime.
Sort your thoughts:
There is usually no time during the day and right after work to process everything that has happened and how you should deal with it. Ideally share your thoughts with your partner or roommate before going to bed. Spending time with your loved ones will not only make you feel good, but will also be able to sort your thoughts so that they do not bother you.
