  • Teach your brain the association it has with your bed: If you have the habit of lying awake on your bed till late in the night, your brain quickly learns that the bed is about staying awake. So, you need your brain to relearn the actual purpose of a bed. The next time that you don’t feel sleepy, get up and go to another room or maybe sit on a chair in the bedroom. Take out a book and start reading. Do not touch your phone, use your laptop or watch TV! Once you feel sleepy, come back to your bed and sleep. This way, your brain will be able to associate sleep with bed.
  • Meditate: For more than hundreds of years, meditation has been the sole medicine for the troubled mind. During the ancient days, there was no allopathy or sleeping pills. So, why should it be any different now? If you cannot sleep, simply try and meditate. Meditation will help to clear and quieten your mind, make you feel relaxed and eventually, lull you into deep slumber.
  • Practice yoga everyday: If physical, mental and emotional well-being is your ultimate aim, there is nothing better that yoga. Have you seen how happy and content the yogis are? Well, you can also be like them if you diligently practice yoga. Yoga will help to keep you in proper shape, stress-free and a lot more calm and composed. It will also provide you with the energy to go through the day and catch a good night’s sleep when you come back home.
  • Therapeutic massages: A relaxing and rejuvenating massage will most definitely make you fall off to sleep, if nothing else works. You can visit wellness and retreat centers offering massages because it is always best to get a massage from a professional and well-trained masseuses.
