Natural Cures for Insomnia That Work
Insomnia is something that most of us will experience at some time in our lives. Right now over 30% of Americans report that they aren’t getting enough sleep. It doesn’t get any better as we age either. That number climbs 50-60% as Americans age over sixty. There’s nothing more powerless feeling than rolling on your foam mattresses, worried about the sleep that you’re missing out on.
From expensive sleep therapies, to new drugs, it can feel overwhelming and life changing to take action to combat insomnia, but here’s good news: there are natural cures that can work for little cost with effective results. Nectar, who makes great foam mattresses at an affordable price, as compiled a list of things to do to help you when you just feel like sleep is too far away.
If your mind is racing and you’re tapping your legs, try getting out of bed. If you walk around the room a bit, it gives your body a chance to work out the anxiety with physicality, and the walking should take your mind off the anxiety by keeping you present. Plus, as an added benefit, you’ll definitely be thinking about lying down on your perfect foam mattresses the whole time you’re up, giving you added desire for rest when you lie back down.
Some herbal teas can work magic on your body. Try jasmine, chamomile, or valerian root to quiet loud thoughts and destress your body.
Your body starts to cool down the longer you are asleep. That loss of heat can sometimes wake you up, or if it starts early enough, actually prevent you from sleeping. You can solve this problem by wearing a nice pair of wool socks, not only will it keep the heat in, you’ll actually generate more heat from your body’s interaction with the wool.
Try a New Mattress
As goofy as it sounds, your mattress could be giving you back problems that keep you up at night. If you wake up with a sore back, or tired in the morning, try giving memory foam mattresses a try. Foam mattresses are a relatively new phenomenon that give you both comfort and support by using foam as the base for bedding. Foam mattresses have the added benefit of contouring to your shape, and don’t lose their spring like traditional mattresses.
The best foam mattresses come from Nectar, who use four different types of memory foam to give you the absolute best coverage. With Nectar you get the support of a firm mattress with the comfort of a pillow top. That’s the best of both worlds! So don’t take our word for it, check out our website and try one for yourself!
