Three All Natural Remedies for Sleep

With hectic work schedules and even busier personal lives, many of us simply don’t get the proper amount of sleep to feel our best every day. In fact, studies suggest that as much as 60 percent of the adult population has difficulty getting to sleep and staying asleep at least once a week. The problem is inadequate sleep negatively affects mood, health and vitality. It’s a fact, we’re not where we need to be to perform at optimal levels, but what’s even more concerning is that most of us don’t even realize it. Before reaching for those sleeping pills, and in the interest of getting deep, peaceful rest, here are the top three all natural remedies for sleep that are sure to help you get some shut eye.

Melatonin Supplements – Melatonin is found naturally in the body. It’s a hormone found in the pineal gland in the center of the brain, which regulates the body’s wake-sleep cycle. When you are ready to fall asleep, melatonin levels are at their highest. Supplements have been used successfully to treat sleep disorder in senior citizens and even children. However, as is true with all natural dietary supplements, melatonin that you can purchase over the counter is not regulated by the FDA and therefore, untested for long term health in humans.

Preparation – How do you prepare for sleep? Simple. You avoid having caffeine four hours before retiring, start a routine that signals the body when it’s time to retire and create an environment that promotes sleep. In other words, wash your face, brush your teeth and get into a clean bed with the lights and television off. Make sure the room is fairly dark and your creature comfort interrupters (phone, computer, email) are tucked away nice and neat until tomorrow. Preparing for sleep is half the battle and when you convince yourself that sleep is a priority it will come easier.

Soak in a Hot Tub – Nothing is more relaxing and calming than sitting in heated water. Now imagine submerging yourself in massaging water that unlike a bath, doesn’t lose heat within a few minutes of getting in. With targeted massage and bubbling water, a hot tub is the ideal environment for easing into sleep, making it more likely you will fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. From a scientific perspective, when internal body temperature drops as you exit the tub, signals are sent to the brain alerting the body that it’s time to shut down for sleep.

With a fast paced, uncertain world facing us every day, it’s almost predictable that we would have difficulties shutting it down when it’s time to rest. If sleep is a challenge, before resorting to prescription drugs, consider giving a few all natural solutions a try and give your body the chance to prove that with a little effort and some good advice, it can give you the rest you deserve with a deep, peaceful sleep.
