Sleep Well | What to Do When You Can't Sleep

How to fall asleep fast from NZ Lavender Herb Farm

It is very difficult for your body to sleep if your mind can't too.

Here are some tips that might help you fall asleep faster.

Tip 1: Wind-down before bed

Give yourself at least 30 minutes of wind-down time before bed. You could do something relaxing, such as read a book. Dim the lights in the house slightly and try to light a lavender scented candle. Lavender works as an anxiety reliever to increase calm and relaxation. It helps to bring sleep. 

Tip 2: Breathing and muscle relaxation

Use 4-7-8 breathing technique to reduce your anxiety and help you sleep. 
  • empty the lungs of air
  • close your lips, inhaling quietly through your nose and do a mental count of 4.
  • hold your breath for a count of 7.
  • exhale completely through the mouth, making a "whoosh" sound, for 8 seconds.
  • repeat the cycle up to four times. 

Tip 3: Still can't sleep ? Get out of bed.

If you get into bed and cannot all asleep after 20 minutes, get up, leave your bedroom and do a relaxing activity.

Tip 4: Make sleeping environment comfortable

Make sure your room is not too warm or too cold. Find a mattress and pillow where its firmness level makes you feel restful. Spray nice scented mist on your linen or pillow before you go to bed and it might help you relax.
