Unusual Tricks That Help Improve Your Sleep

Do you have trouble falling asleep?

If the usual methods don’t work for you anymore, like taking a warm bath or drinking warm milk, check out some of the more unconventional methods below.

1. Weighted Blanket

The extra weight is a form of deep pressure touch stimulation, a therapy that increases melatonin levels.

2. Rock Yourself to Sleep

Adults could use a little rocking too! Rocking yourself in a rocking or office chair before bedtime helps relax the body and ease the mind.

3. Honey & Salt

Take a tablespoon of equal parts of raw honey and Himalayan salt before bed. The recipe is supposed to stabilize your blood sugar levels so your less likely to wake at night.

4. Rub Your Belly

Starting at the navel, rub your belly in bigger and bigger circles clockwise and then smaller and smaller counter clockwise circles.

5. ASMR Videos

ASMR stands for “astronomous sensory median response,” and it refers to that tingling sensation that you feel on the back of your head or neck. Not everyone experiences the actual ASMR sensation, but everyone can benefit from the relaxing aspects of watching ASMR videos – If you can get past the weirdness of it. Here are a few examples you watch while laying in bed: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_QJu1wPr0HxpZuhUbZ8jzg

You can also train yourself to get acquainted to a ritual you employ specifically before going to bed, so after a few weeks of doing the same activity over and over, you acquire an instant Pavlovian response to get sleepy after, say, listening to Beethoven or rubbing your nose.

Sleep better to live better…
