In her most recent video, YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers 20 ideas on how to fall asleep faster. Her first tip is to white or ambient noise to drown out other noises. Then she suggests pushing a pressure point between your eyes to calm yourself down and make you sleepy.
Wengie’s next tip is to put jasmine oil on your third eye. Blink really fast for a minute to make your eyes tired and make you sleepy. Keep your room at 65 degrees to make your body cool down and fall asleep faster. Consciously relax each muscle in your body to make you fall asleep relaxed. Eat a spoonful of honey to improve your sleep quality.
Stroke a pet to relieve stress and relax you. Do not sleep on your right side because it can lead to sleep disrupting acid reflux. Eat tart cherries before bed to regulate your circadian rhythm. Follow a specific breathing pattern to make you relaxed and sleepy. Take a hot bath or shower before bed; the rapid temperature drop afterwards mirrors the temperature drop when you fall asleep, so you will feel tired. Stop using electronics 30 minutes before sleeping.
Imagine random objects one after another to stop your brain from dwelling on things from the day. Put your legs up against the wall to relieve stress and lower back strain. Get a massage with aromatherapy. Avoid tossing and turning to stop feelings of restlessness. Go to sleep at the same time every day and set an alarm to remind yourself.
