Natural Remedies For Insomnia

 

Are you having trouble sleeping? Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Have you been struggling with insomnia for a long time? Then this information will be a holy grail for you, keep reading because what I’m going to share with you isn’t your traditional cookie cutter advice.


The reason I’m so confident about the things I’m gonna to share with you in this article,  is because I my self have had insomnia and trouble sleeping since I was 8 years old and I’ve tried many different methods to deal with this over the years. When I was little, I was taking some over the counter medication to literally knock my self out, because my mind just wouldn’t stop racing, then when I grew up I found a doctor who prescribed me many different medication for insomnia, but non of them really worked and in the long run made things worst. So, several years ago I decided to give up all this prescription medication junk and wanted to figure out a natural way to improve my sleeping condition.

First I got to warn you, some of these methods are going to be for people with an open mind, because I will give you some very non traditional advice, if you’re not one of the open minded people then you can read the article anyway and at least give some of these things a try, what do you go to lose anyway? 

I will not be going into the details of what causes insomnia or sleep problems, this article is to help you to improve your sleep, not to focus on the problem, I’m sure you’ve already read plenty of articles on causes of insomnia.

 

1. Stop Talking about the Problem of “Insomnia” and “Why Can’t I Sleep “

 

A lot of people who have trouble sleeping are constantly focusing on the fact that they can’t sleep. They talk about it to others, they always concentrate on the fact how tired they are because they had another sleepless night. I’m guilty, and thats how I figured out I needed to stop doing that. OUR WORDS AND THOUGHTS ARE MATRAS. The more you talk about something, the more you think about something the more energy you give it for manifestation. If you’re always focused on how tired you are, guess what you’re gonna get more of? Being tired 🙂 Your mind wouldn’t want you to think you’re going crazy, so it’s going to serve you more reality of what you’re talking about and thinking about constantly.
So, if you’ve had another sleepless night and someone asks you the next day how did you sleep today? You say: “I feel good”. That’s it. If you’re frustrated, understand that you’ve been developing this habit for many years and it will take some time to reprogram your mind, so just say to your self: this is temporarily. It is a process, but I feel good. Your new mantra is: “ I feel good. I always feel good. I always get the sleep I need.

 

2. Deep Breathing

 

Breath is Life. Deep breath reinforces connection to the spirit, think of it as an exchange with your soul. When you breathe inn deeply, you take the energy of life inside your body, when you breathe out you’re giving feedback of your experiences back to your soul. I bet you never thought of it like that. Why do you think when you get mad they say to breathe deeply? Because when you connect to the energy frequency of your soul you’re able to raise your own energy and anger naturally dissipates. Breathing can totally transform a stressful person into someone who is calm and composed.
Breath is so underrated in our Western Culture. We don’t think of it as medicine, but breath is medicine. Connecting to life force is medicine. So when you find your self on one of the sleepless nights BREATHE DEEPLY, just keep breathing and focus on your breath. Become aware of your breath, this is a great technique which will help you fall back asleep.

 

3. Bedroom is for sleeping, NOT WATCHING TV

 

One of the main problems people have trouble sleeping is TV in the bedroom. A TV has a specific frequency and this frequency really effects our energy, its toxic for our nervous system. This also goes for other electronics, computers, phones etc. You can keep your phone if you like, just make sure to dim the screen to very low brightness, bright light shining in your face tells your brain you need to stay up, so you stay up. I personally recommend to cut down on electronics and tv 1 hour prior to going to bed.

 

4. Get rid of any reflective objects that are facing your bed

 

This advice is for the open minded. Mirrors, Tv’s are a reflective surface and you do not want it facing your bed while you’re sleeping. This is actually a known fact in Feng Shui and its strongly recommended, if you want to wake up rested that is. I do not want to go into the details, but reflective surfaces are portals into other dimensions and these reflective surfaces will drain you of energy, you will wake up tired the next day more often than not  ( this information is for those who understand some quantum physics and how there are many other worlds exist in the same space all at once ). I know you’re probably thinking, OMG what is this crazy lady talking about, but I’m not asking you to trust me, just try it for you self. Cover your mirrors, TV’s or what ever else shining on you while you’re getting your rest and see if your sleeping patters as well as how you feel the next day will improve.

 

5. Atmosphere and Decorations In Your Bedroom

 

The colors and the objects in a bedroom will have an effect on a sensitive person, if you have trouble sleeping, you are a sensitive person. I suggest painting your bedroom in very soothing colors. Light blue, light gray, pale yellow and anything earthy. Find which colors are soothing to you and choose one of them for your bedroom. Stay away from anything too bright and too loud, these colors will keep you wired. You want the atmosphere in your bedroom to feel peaceful not entertaining.

Purchase a small fountain for the bedroom, the soothing sounds of water will help to calm your nerves, water in it self is an element connected to emotions and thats why it’s so soothing to hear the sounds of rain, ocean or waterfall for example.

Decor in your bedroom needs to remind you of relaxation and sleep. I have glow in the dark starts in my bedroom’s sealing, when I fall asleep it really soothes me.
Another great point for the bedroom is blockout curtains. I actually got 2 sets of them so my bedroom is like a cave, completely dark. Most people who have trouble sleeping are very sensitive to light, so block out curtains will solve this problem for you.

 

6. Create A Complete Feeling Of Comfort in Your Bed

 

This is something I didn’t take seriously for many years, I didn’t think there is much importance in having a comfortable bed, or  a mattress, or a blanket or sheets. But I realized experience comes with comparison. I’ve changed several mattresses throughout 7 years or so.

When I first moved into my house, I got this super fancy pillow top mattress and I thought since It was fancy I should sleep soundly, my goodness was I wrong. This mattress turned out way too soft and at the time I was recovering from a back injury, the mattress made it worst and I could never get good nights sleep. Then I purchased another mattress, that one was too hard and I was still struggling with being comfortable. Then there was another mattress, which was OK but still not comfortable and I was tossing and turning all night long, I thought I lost all hope for being comfortable while sleeping, but shortly after I found memory foam hybrid mattress and that became a huge improvement on my tossing and turning! I started noticing that I would sleep in the same position for several hours instead of switching every so often. This mattress adjusts to the body’s position and temperature, I think it’s incredible the stuff they come up now days, now I’m really looking forward going to sleep every night.
Another thing which I thought played absolutely no part before is comforter, OMG was I wrong. A few years ago I bought this super awesome blanket from Ikea, it was the most expensive comforter there, but honestly it felt like I was always laying under a brick, this thing was warm but quite heavy. It was also supposed to be their warmest blanket, but in the winter I was still cold under it an needed to have another blanket over me. I thought all comforters are the same, but then I decided to try a comforter from the same company ( Tomorrow Sleep,)  as now my best hybrid mattress.

When it arrived my first thought was that it’s way too light and way too thin, I was thinking how is this thin comforter gonna keep me warm. But when I slept under it the first night, I realized just how amazing this comforter is. It’s light and fluffy as a feather but it kept me so warm and cozy. The only downside to it, you just don’t want to get out of bed. My friend called this blanket a magic gnome blanket because logically makes no sense how it can keep you this warm and be so light at the same time. Right now you can get 150 dollars off any 500 dollars purchase by entering a promo code FIT150, but this promo will expire on December 31/17.

 

7. Binaural and Isotonic Beats Music for Sleep

 

The word binaural means “having or relating to two ears”. This represents the process, which works by simultaneously sending a marginally different sound frequency to each ear through headphones.
Brainwave entrainment happens inside the brain, and is caused by a physiological response. Upon hearing two tones of different frequencies – sent simultaneously to the left and right ears – the brain perceives a third tone based on the mathematical difference between the two frequencies.
The brain then follows along at the new frequency and produces brainwaves at the same rate of Hertz (Hz).
For example: if a 200 Hz sound frequency is sent to the left ear, and a 205 Hz to the right ear, the brain will process those two frequencies and perceive a new frequency at 5 Hz.
The brain then follows along at the new frequency (5 Hz), producing brainwaves at the same rate of Hertz (Hz). The technical term for this process is ‘frequency following response’.
Remember, the brain will only respond in the intended way if it receives the sound frequencies at the same time through headphones. ( Full Article explaining this can be found Here  )

You can find thousand of free binaural music for sleep on YouTube, find the one that works best for you.
