Another working week is ahead of us. Pressure and excitement arising from numerous new to-do tasks often give us trouble with falling asleep at night. Are you familiar with the feeling that overwhelms you when you lie down earlier knowing that you have a really busy schedule tomorrow? But instead of falling asleep immediately you toss around and can’t get a wink of sleep for hours and hours.
There are several good night drinks that could help ease this problem. Try them!
A glass of warm milk before hitting the sack is an old traditional recipe that is popular even today. Luckily, when it comes to warm milk, its effect is mostly the placebo effect. Warm milk reminds us of childhood and to most of us, it brings us tranquility. Besides, warm drink raises body temperature which helps us relax and ensures better sleep.
You can add a teaspoon of honey to milk since it’ll raise serotonin level and you’ll wake up in a great mood with no sign of insomnia at all.
Chamomile tea is just the thing to drink before going to bed. It relaxes your entire body, nerves in particular. In addition, chamomile is known for anti-inflammatory properties and is also good for stomach and digestion. It is due to these fact that chamomile tea is widely appreciated as a good night drink.
This wonder of nature has been recently discovered. Cherries contain melatonin, a hormone that is being secreted before sleep and it is responsible for that sense of sleepiness. A glass of cherry juice will ensure peaceful and sweet dreams which will help you get ready for the day to come.
