4 Tips for Beating Insomnia Naturally
Stop looking at the clock. If you are anxious about lack of sleep and you have a glowing clock near your bed that you constantly check, you will be more anxious about how few hours of sleep you will get, which will lead to you sleeping even less.
Don’t work, watch TV or use your computer/phone in bed: remove things that stimulate and awaken your senses or stress you from bedroom. Keep the bedroom a sacred place of rest and renewal.
Herbal teas- chamomile and chrysanthemum teas (available in asian supermarkets) can help relax you, there are also a variety of Chinese herbal teas for relaxation and insomnia.
