Your Bedtime Routine - A Natural Insomnia Remedy

One natural insomnia remedy that works for many adults as well as children is to establish a relaxing bedtime routine that works for you, and follow it every night.

The consistency of your routine conditions your brain to the idea that at the end of the routine comes sleep.

Once you establish a bedtime routine, stick with it for a few weeks before making any changes to it.

If you're still having trouble falling asleep after that, then you can try adjusting one thing at a time till you hit on the combination of elements in your bedtime routine that help you fall asleep.

Write down your plan of action, including bedtime and waking time; try to aim for seven to eight hours of sleep each night.

Establishing a regular sleep schedule includes making a point of waking up at the same time each morning, even if you didn't sleep well.

Allowing yourself to stay in bed or oversleep in the morning will make it harder for you to fall asleep that night.

If your bedtime routine gets off track for some reason (such as travel, evening commitments, or overnight guests), just do your best to get back on track immediately.

Your bedtime routine is a way of notifying your subconscious, "It's time to fall asleep now."

Try this natural sleep remedy for a few weeks and see whether it helps your insomnia.
