10 tips on getting a better sleep

Here are ten fundamental ways through which you can get faster, better, and deeper sleep:

1.     Celery juice:

Thirst is one of the elements that may keep someone up for more than twelve hours. In that case, you can take twelve to sixteen ounces of fresh celery juice. And have it before going to bed. What it does is amazing! It actually has natural sedatives.

2.    Oils and fats intake:

Consuming healthy oils and fats that are found in different natural oils (coconut, sesame, olive) and organic meat (cows and buffalos fed on meadow or grass), dairy products (ghee, butter, eggs, and milk) delivers strength to the body. It leads to the formation of sleep hormones.

3.    Use of devices:

All gadgets and devices like laptops, phones, tablets, and computers should be shut down. By shutting down or “turning them off” we mean, you have to completely cut ties with them for eight hours. Don’t put it on silent or airplane mode. Instead, turn it off and switch it on in the morning. Use conventional alarm clock for getting up on time. By doing so, you will relax and get the best from the natural ways of falling asleep.

4.   Caffeine:

Avoiding caffeine, sugar, and nicotine after one in the noon can help in getting better sleep in nights.

5.    Hot bath:

Fill the tub with hot water and soak yourself for sixty minutes before going to bed.Or take a hot bath if possible. If you soak in the tub, then add salts of any type (for instance, dead sea salts or Epsom salts) at least one hour before hitting the bed. You can also listen to relaxing music, light aromatic candles,and read something while enjoying candles and music. This tip works for few and others may feel that it is not workable as they get fresher and feels less sleepy.

6.    CBD oil:

Taking CBD oil at least 3 or 4 hours before sleep actually does wonders. It is because this oil has the ability to reduce pain and other psychological concerns. Also,it increases relaxation and calmness resulting in relaxed muscles and nerves.

7.    Warm milk:

Take a mug of hot milk and add almost one-fourth teaspoon of nutmeg. Stir it well, don’t add sugar, instead add a half teaspoon of organic honey. Drink it at least half an hour before the set time to go to sleep. This is one of the oldest and most conventional ways of having tight sleep in the night.

8.   Quietness:

If you sit quietly for around ten to fifteen minutes, automatically sleep will start coming. Your eyes will become heavy. You will want to close your eyes. If that doesn’t happen, then shut your eyes closely and feel your heartbeat. Doing so, you will get sleepy and eventually will fall asleep.

9.    No naps in the day time:

Obviously, if you will sleep in the day time or wake up too late, it will be impossible to sleep on time in nights. Eventually, you won’t sleep at all or will sleep too late. Keeping the entire routine at stake. Therefore, it is recommended not to sleep during day time.
