You still cannot fall asleep after taking a hot bath, drinking some warm milk and counting sheep? What should you do? Sleep experts recommend six strange tricks to help you fall asleep.
Reliving all the mundane happenings of the day helps you reach a mental state that’s ready to nod off. If you cannot fall asleep, you can recall those conversations, the sights and the sounds of the day.
It is a yoga trick to help you clam. Get out of bed. Close your eyes. Drop your shoulders. Relax your jaw. Gently close your mouth. Breathe deeply through the nose and slowly out through your mouth. It will have you humming. It will vibrate your chest. Focus on the vibrations for six breaths. Then, sit it quietly. Go to bed and tell yourself you’re ready to sleep.
3. Use your left nostril
It is another yoga trick. You can breathe in air through your left nostril and close your right nostril with a finger, reducing the blood pressure and helping calm you. Breathe deeply, slowly through your left nostril. If you are overheated of having a menopausal hot flash, this is especially helpful.
4. Pull the trigger
Children always do it. They stroke their hair or rub their cheek and they nod right off. You can try it. Or, try stoking your check and focusing all your attention on this feel. Your body will learn to associate the motion with going to sleep if you do this over a few nights.
5. Throw away worries
Many people will think everything that’s a problem or has to be done, so they cannot fall asleep. Please write it down before bed. Think about how you will handle every item on the list. Then, put the list away along with the worries it contains. Now, go to sleep as you know how you’re going to handle everything!
6. Roll your eyes
Teenagers are good at rolling eyes. Close your eyes and then roll your eyes back three times, which will trigger the release of the sleep hormone, melatonin.
Last but not least, do not forget a comfortable bed.
