Tips to Help Insomnia
Is there anything more frustrating than lying wide awake in bed when you should have gone to sleep hours ago, thinking about how you should have gone to sleep hours ago? With the stress of the holiday season, we might all be thankful for some tips on better sleep.
For two weeks, Laura Heller from Hello Glow practiced a wide variety of methods for better sleep — from a cup of tea to stretches to essential oils — and kept notes about what helped and what didn’t. She complied her notes into 5 solid tips for better sleep. Our favorite tip (and arguably the most difficult to accomplish) is to keep to a consistent routine. From her article:
Getting up and going to bed around the same time every day helps regulate your internal clock, resulting in more consistent and deeper sleep. You can also relieve mental stress in the evening by establishing a bedtime routine that gives you time to unwind and relax. Take a bath, drink some chamomile tea, read a book, or journal about the day.
Hugs and bućas!
