One of the most important things in life is your sleep. It is something that can hamper your entire life. That’s right, guys. Lack of sleep can cause a number of health issues, both physiological and psychological, including:
- Unusual weight gain
- Comprised thinking and concentration
- Memory issues
- Mood changes and anxiety
- Immune system weakness
- Risk of diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Poor balance and fatigue
In order to avoid such problems, all you need to do is fix your sleep cycle. It can be done with the help of tranquilizers, but they have side effects of their own. The idea is to fix your sleep cycle as well as health in general, not to make it worse. Thus, I suggest taking the natural route.
To help you with it, here I’m going to list down a few effective ways to regulate your sleep pattern. Have a look at the list below:
Cut the Naps
First and foremost, you need to cut the naps you take throughout the day. I reckon that it’s refreshing to take a nap once or twice a day. It relieves fatigue, but remember it’s only temporary.
The fatigue comes back when you’re unable to sleep through the day. Not being able to sleep early or not being able to stay asleep throughout the night is usually a result of taking naps during the day. Therefore, it’s mandatory that you cut the naps.
Herbs and Plants
Yes, I did say that allopathic sleep-inducing drugs are harmful to your body and mind, but it’s not the same for herbs and plants. A number of herbs and plants have healing properties that can relax your nerves and help you sleep.
I usually prefer medical marijuana. It’s legal in various Canadian and American states due to its health benefits. Not to mention, weed delivery here in Edmonton is exceptionally easy.
I usually order indica marijuana buds or lemon tek mushrooms. They destress my body and unwind my mind, which includes sleep naturally. Oh, and they also help me stay asleep, which is exactly what someone with insomnia needs.
Caffeine is a stimulant that can keep you awake for hours and hours. While it may help when you’re working and want to concentrate on one thing, it can be hazardous for your sleep cycle. For me, 3-4 cups of americano mean staying awake all night.
Hence, for all those trying to fix their sleep patterns, I suggest leaving caffeinated beverages altogether. Still, if you’re addicted to tea or coffee like most people are, simply reduce the amount you consume in a day. Make sure not to have more than two cups of coffee or tea in one day.
When trying to sleep, you need to have a relaxed body and mind. A relaxed body and mind can ensure a sound sleep, which is fulfilling and healthy. One way to achieve that is by taking a body massage before bedtime.
For this, you can either have a masseuse come over or visit a spa and enjoy a session of massage therapy. The third option is to purchase a massage chair and have a body massage at home.
Chair massage therapies are equally relaxing. They can eliminate physical tension and promote a night of great sleep.
Ranking fifth is aromatherapy. It’s a holistic healing method, in which aromatic essential oils are used to enhance physical and mental wellbeing. Yes, you’ve heard that correctly.
Aromatherapy not only makes your psychological wellbeing better but spiritual and physical health, too. It’s offered by various spas in the United States and Canada. People from around the world enjoy it for its astounding benefits and the deep relaxation it provides.
Tell me honestly, isn’t it quite simple what I’ve mentioned above? Having a sleeping pill right before bedtime may be a conventional way to sleep, but it won’t fix your sleep cycle. Fixing your sleep pattern or having a healthy sleep cycle is another story, but you need not worry.
The tips and tricks mentioned above will certainly help you out. I wish you well, my friends.
