Cure insomnia - without the sleeping pills with Sealy

8:36 PM claire 0 Comments

Forget the sleeping pills that make you feel like a slave. Sleeping should be an enjoyable activity. Remember the good old days when you used to sign autograph books and your favourite hobby was sleeping? Turn that into a reality again with these techniques.

I've compiled some suggestions that you could try to help you drift off to sleepyland - the natural way.



Sniff Aromatherapy

Have you ever tried aromatherapy? It's amazing. I just love the smell of lavender or eucalyptus after a stressful day. If burning essential oils aren't your thing, get an eye mask or even a little sachet of dried potpourri and place it near your bed! Inhaling them during the night also helps to ensure continued relaxation so you don't get interrupted sleep that often.


 Make sure that your lights are off and your electronic devices (eg, handphone, tablet, laptop) are far away from your reach. Create a conducive environment for an important time of your day!

Claire's own remedy

Here's a little trick that I use to fall asleep when my mind just can't seem to switch off.

Step 1: Take a deep breath. Inhale. Exhale. Do this about 3 times.

Step 2: Starting with my face, do a top to toe check to make sure you're relaxed. Are you frowning subconsciously? Are any muscles in your body tensed? Relax them!

Step 3: Feeling more calm already? Think of a black circle. Now expand that circle as wide as you can.

Sometimes I fall asleep at Step 2 hahah.


 Once sleeping becomes enjoyable again, you'll be more attached to your bed than ever!

Get a Sealy Mattress

You knew this was coming. I haven't had insomnia ever since I had my Sealy mattress and I'm positively sure it's because of how comfortable my bed is!! Sometimes I'm just lying in bed texting and next thing I know, I'm fast asleep. Not kidding!! Their revolutionary Posturepedic Titanium Coil supports my body whichever direction I turn by distributing the weight.

Nothing's gonna change my love for my Sealy

Take a warm bath

Candles, rose scents in the air (or the smell of your fragrant shower gel) and some alone time is a wonderful way to prep yourself for bed. Without that sense of urgency and rush, your mind relaxes. Taking a warm bath will raise your body temperature slightly, and when you get out, the rapid cooldown will mimic the natural temperature drop the brain triggers as it prepares for sleep.

I like taking a shower before sleeping because being clean kinda makes me feel like I'm washing all the grime from the day away and the next day's going to be better. Therapeutic! 

Pamper your mind and body by investing in a mattress that will bring tons of intangible benefits!!

Cut the Caffeine

I remember once I had supper with friends around 11pm and I ordered milk tea. That little drink kept me up til 4am even though I was physically exhausted! Did you know that half the amount of caffeine you've consumed stays in your system even after 5 hours?? For best sleep results, try to stop taking any caffeine products after lunch. Your body will thank you later.
 
If all else fails, try a new sleeping position.

What's the secret to having good skin, a better complexion and that special glow? Having enough sleep! 
I feel energetic and alert as long as I get my 8 hours on my Sealy and other mattresses (yes, sometimes even in hotels) don't make me feel as well rested.
