Who hasn't been there: laying in bed feeling tired but can't fall asleep and end up tossing and turning all night.
Did you know that a 1 hr Massage has the same effect on the body as 7 hours of sleep? If you ever had a massage you know that during a massage one can reach a deeper state of relaxation that effects not only your body but your mind as well. Read on below for more tips on improving your chances of catching some much needed Zzz's:
1, Reduce all EMF's in your bedroom, this means no TV or Computer, electric clock or alarm and no Mobile Phone!
2, Establish a calming and relaxing bedtime routine before you go to bed, like:
- have a cup of herbal tea or warm milk with some honey
- read a book or magazine
- take a bath
- meditate or practice deep breathing for 5 - 10 minutes
- use aroma oils in a diffuser: lavender, sandalwood and melissa are great for promoting sleep
3, look into alternative Remedies like Bachflower Essences or Acupressure points which are great for self help practice. I have a sleep remedy to
purchase and my Acupressure Self help course can teach you some helpful Acu points to hold.
4, and of course having a regular massage can also help keeping the body &
mind more relaxed and catching up on some much needed rest
And lastly if insomnia becomes a regular thing consult your GP to rule out underlying physical issues.
