Unusual Ways to Enjoy a Good Night’s Sleep


Here’s something really ironic that you need to know about: the
more badly you want to get some sleep, the harder it’s going to be for you to
fall asleep.

Worry not because popping a sleeping pill in your mouth before
bedtime is not the only solution available. On the internet, there are tons of
articles on all-natural remedies for insomnia. Some of the most common ones
include drinking chamomile tea, having a glass of warm milk, snacking on a
banana, meditating and taking a whiff of lavender essential oil.

Been there, done that and still it seems like you cannot get 7 to
9 hours of restorative, uninterrupted sleep at night? Maybe it’s time for you
to give some unusual solutions for sleep deprivation a try.

Just because they are unusual doesn’t mean that they leave you
feeling excite and thus keep you from getting some much-needed Z’s — many
insomnia sufferers from across the globe can attest to the effectiveness of the
following truly strange ways to lull you to sleep without much trouble:

It is said that the invisible energy being given off by the planet
can be utilized to deal with inflammation, reduce pain, control anxiety and
increase energy. It’s also said to help put an end to insomnia.

Such is what’s referred to as earthing or grounding, and you can
do it by being barefoot in your garden or on the lawn. These days, there are earthing
or grounding mats available online and offline so that you may take advantage
of the earth’s energy without stepping foot outside your abode.

You may also consider placing some potted plants in your room if
you are having a difficult time getting some shut-eye. Plants help purify and
even humidify the air that you breathe, thus making it so much easier for you
to relax not only your body but also mind.

But don’t just place any plant right next to your bed — opt for
something that actually has sleep-inducing properties. Some examples of those
that are beneficial for people who are suffering from insomnia include
lavender, chrysanthemum, chamomile, valerian, peace lily, aloe vera, snake
plant, California poppy and Philippine evergreens.

Everyone knows that a warm shower is an effective way to unwind at
the end of a tiring day, thus allowing for a good night’s sleep. Did you know
that some experts say that you should take a cold shower instead of a warm one
if you want to get to dreamland right away?

That’s because your body’s core temperature naturally drops at night
in order to encourage sleep, and thus enjoying a cold rather than warm shower
can facilitate that body clock-regulating step.

It’s no secret that having a cup of chamomile tea and eating a
piece of banana are two of the most well-known home remedies for insomnia.
Well, there’s a solution that combines the two that you should definitely try:
brewing yourself a cup of banana peel tea.

All you have to do is boil a medium-sized banana in water for
about 10 minutes. Feel free to add a little honey or freshly-squeezed lemon
juice before slowly drinking it about an hour before hopping into bed.

Here’s a really strange way for you to fall asleep: take a whiff
of some onion cubes in a glass jar. It’s true that the pungent smell of onions
can make your nose crinkle, but the fact is that it can also leave you feeling
sleepy because of its tryptophan, an amino acid that can help beat insomnia.

Place onion cubes in a small glass jar with an air-tight lid. Take
a whiff of them for about 5 minutes upon hopping into bed. Put the jar right
next to your bed so that you may be able to easily reach for it in case you get
roused from your sleep in the middle of the night.
