Most people that have problems sleeping resort to prescriptions, over-the-counter medications or even “natural” alternatives like melatonin.  What they don’t mention is that this can lead to dependence, a greater problem with attempts to sleep and frightening issues during dreamtime.

Obviously there is a lot of controversy when it comes to finding a cure for problems with sleeping, but before you try an internal solution and putting something inside of your body, perhaps try an external solution changing your environment.

If you’ve had your mattress for more than 8 years, it’s about time you get a new one or at least a mattress pad. Not only will a new mattress help assist you with fall asleep faster, but it can help cure problems like back and neck aches that can keep you feeling tired all day.

It may be an old wives tale, but hot chamomile tea or a glass of hot milk might do the trick. Soothing and warm, heated liquids can warm your body up faster and allow for greater relaxation when trying to fall asleep.

When all else fails, the Rise and Shine Natural Wake-Up Light  is a great thing to have for when you  need to fall asleep peacefully and wake up refreshed. The light and sound therapy helps your body to naturally fall asleep , calibrating the external environment with your internal needs. When you’re ready to wake up, rather than try and be jolted up by the sound of a harsh alarm clock, you can slowly be awakened with a slowly brightened light, simulating dawn. This slow change in environment helps your brain to wake up, giving it time to adjust before your eyes open and you start your day.

Still have trouble sleeping? Try counting sheep, reading and keeping the lights and sounds off in your room for at least a half hour before attempting to fall asleep, signaling a wind-down time for your body.

You may not know it, but once you’ve brushed your teeth and put the toothbrush away, bacteria starts to move in. While you’re sleeping, cells multiply, creating a haven of germs.
