Insomnia is becoming one of the great problems in today’s society. This is due to the rhythm of life that we lead, with too much stress and without moments to meditate and think about our things. The negative effects that insomnia have on our health are numerous and, if left untreated, they can be very serious. The main symptoms of insomnia are:

– Lack of sleep

– Decreased attention

– Low performance

– Fatigued and tired body

– Negative thoughts

– Irritability

As we can see, the consequences of insomnia can alter us in the normal activity of our day to day , even putting our job and our relationship with others at risk.

According to experts and psychologists, sleep is one of the vital activities that we have to perform correctly and insomnia is its main enemy. In most cases, when we are sleep deprived, what we do is take the easy route and medicate ourselves so that our body relaxes and we can fall asleep, but this is not the most correct.

There are different solutions , without having to resort to pills, that we can take, combat the problem of insomnia and rest correctly. If you have problems sleeping soundly, you are in luck, because we are going to give you different tricks to overcome your insomnia problems in a simple , natural way and, most importantly, without taking a single pill.

1. Have an infusion

There are countless natural herbs that help us relax and feel calm before going to sleep. In this case, linden, lemon verbena, lemon balm, chamomile or lavender tea are the best allies to drink just before going to bed. These apart from having relaxing powers, they will regulate our body temperature and will leave us in a state of relaxation that will help us sleep through the night soundly.

2. Play sports

In the society in which we live brought a lifestyle very sedentary, which means that we little move and our body when going to sleep is not tired, so it will not fall asleep. Playing sports is a great alternative to tire the body and, when night comes, it will notice it and go to sleep like a baby without the need to take pills for it.

3. Use the bed only to sleep and make love

If we associate the bed as the place to enjoy our sleep and practice sex, our brain will only want to carry out these activities in it. One problem that many of us have is that we live in bed. Who has not spent a Sunday watching a series or reading in bed without getting up? This can create in our brain an image of the bed that does not correspond. The best thing for this is to eliminate elements such as television, radio, computer, etc. from our bedroom. and leave only what encourages us to sleep.

4. Take a relaxing bath

 

Another key to falling asleep without taking pills is to resort to relaxing activities such as a bath with warm water before going to sleep. With this, on the one hand, we are going to get our body to reach an ideal temperature to fall asleep. On the other hand, if we combine the bath with some candles, relaxing music and a dim light, we will get our body to reach an ideal state of relaxation to go to sleep.

As you just read, ending insomnia without taking pills is quite easy, we just have to encourage the time to go to sleep and feel relaxed when we go to do it.
