6 Natural Ways to Fall Asleep… FAST!

So you're tossing and turning, it's 1am and you just can't turn off - been there before? Well, we have and we know how you feel. With many people at that point turning to sleeping pills (which often do more harm than good), we went on the hunt for some natural alternatives that actually work and stumbled across some absolute gems.

Here they are!

Sip on a Soothing Banana Tea

This AWESOME, simple tea recipe is perfect for adding to your nightly routine, and will help you fall asleep quickly, and STAY asleep throughout the night! Made from bananas and cinnamon, it’s something you can whip up easily and cost-effectively.

Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and magnesium, both of which have been proven to help the body relax into sleep. Cinnamon is naturally warming, and helps soothe the body and promote relaxation.

The ‘4-7-8’ Method

Championed by Dr Andrew Weil, this breathing technique claims to help you fall asleep in under a minute. The method claims to relax you by increasing the oxygen levels in your blood, slowing the heart rate, and releasing more carbon-dioxide from your lungs.

Take a Hot Bath

When you are about to sleep, your core body temperature will drop dramatically, and your heart rate will slow down. Stepping out of a hot bath mimics this drop in body temperature, and tricks the mind into thinking it’s about to sleep. The heat also helps to relax your muscles, making it a two-fold sleep-inducer!

Listen to Music

Studies have shown that classical music, or any song with a slow rhythm of 60-80 beats per minute, can help lull you into a natural sleep. It’s also proven to reduce symptoms of depression, helping you to relax and clear your mind ready to sleep.
