Not Getting Sleep? Some Tips for a Goodnight Sleep

Many people suffer insomnia, most of them are those who have flexible working hours like people who work in call centers, factory, and security. I also suffer from insomnia from time to time, so I listed below some of the tips I found and heard.

1. Set the mood. The bedroom needs to have proper light, ventilation, and aroma. Dim lights are suitable and some use aromatic candles to soothe the senses. Proper ventilation is important too.  Of course the bed is really important too, make the bed according to your comfortableness. If sleeping during the day, cover the eyes with mask to avoid sunlight.

2. Wear light clothes (or Naked?). It's always better to wear light and comfortable sleeping clothes. The type of clothes worn sends the signal to the body of what kind of activity the body is up to. 

3. Freshen up. It is most likely to go to deep sleep when the body is freshen up, so a bath before going to bed is useful. It is also hygienic. 

4. Drink some warm drinks. They say that a warm milk helps to get sleep, but if you are lactose intolerant, you can try a tea with lavender or chamomile. Though many will not agree, a coffee with milk always works for me.

5. Play some music (or don't?). I don't specify what kind of music to play because some people can get better sleep with mellow music and some with rock music. So play the music that you think will put you into sleep. When sleeping in a new place, try to record the night noise from the previous place (like city noise) and play it. If you prefer a quite place then earplugs will be useful.

So, those are some of the tips that I can share to you. Hope that helps. Have a tight sleep :)
