Alternative Ways to Fall Asleep


If you have problems falling asleep at night, you might be willing to try anything. Most likely though, you would prefer to use an alternative remedy, instead of trying over the counter or prescription sleeping aids. By using an alternative method to falling asleep, you won’t have to worry about any side effects, or getting addicted to a sleeping pill. They might not be considered mainstream ideas, but if they work for you, then it’s worth it! Here are some great homeopathic things you can try to help you fall asleep at night.

Try using reflexology. When it comes to reflexology, each part of your body is reflected on your hands and your feet. By massaging these places, or having someone else do it for you, it can help you get ready for sleep, and help you get tired. It will also relieve stress, so that is another great reason to try it. Because of both of these, it will help you fall asleep easier at night.

Use lavender. Lavender will help you relax, which will in turn help you fall asleep easier and faster. There are many different ways you can use lavender. You can buy a lotion and massage it into your skin before going to bed. Another way is to buy lavender oil, and either put some in a bath or on your pillow. You can even try lavender tea, which should also help you relax and fall asleep sooner.

Make sure you get enough magnesium in your diet. Magnesium is a natural sedative, and will help you get tired and want to go to sleep. If you don’t eat enough foods throughout the day with magnesium in them, you might not be tired at night. You can try eating foods such as almonds, cashews, whole grains, legumes, or dark leafy vegetables to get more magnesium into your diet.

Try meditation. When you meditate, you receive many benefits. One is that you become more relaxed. Another is that people who meditate have more melatonin in their bodies. Melatonin helps promote a restful, relaxing, deep sleep, so meditation could help you in a few different ways.

As you can see, there are many natural, alternative ways to fall asleep at night. If you want to try something that has no side effects, and can help you fall asleep each night, try some of the above ways, and before you know it, you will be falling asleep easily, and waking up well refreshed.
