So you’re in bed by 10. And yet, it seems, that you can’t sleep. Despite reading that boring book, listening to calming music, and turning on ambient noise–you can’t sleep. It’s frustrating right? Especially if you factor in the fact that you’ll drowsy at work the next day.
But don’t worry! What conventional advice can’t solve, we can. So take a deep breath to calm your nerves, and gulp these magic elixirs to toss insomnia out of your bedroom.
1. Chamomile tea
This remedy to promote a good night’s sleep might be ancient, but hot damn it works. Chamomile tea is known to promote calm and reduce stress, thus inducing sleep.
2. Warm milk
Whether it’s cow milk or almond milk–both variations offer tryptophan, which amps up serotonin levels. The result? Peaceful slumber.
3. Ashwagandha tea
Triethylene glycol–the star of this sleep saga. Found in abundance in ashwagandha, it will help you doze off quicker and calm your nerves to ensure uninterrupted sleep.
4. Moon milk
Don’t worry–this is not an expensive, exotic concoction. Rather, it’s a homely concoction made of turmeric, honey, cinnamon, cardamom, and of course milk. It works like a ram-baan for sleeplessness.
5. Banana smoothie
Here magnesium will do the trick for you. By calming your hustled brain, it will actually prep up your body to slip into sleep mode.
6. Caffeine-free green tea
If sleep is involved, then caffeine obviously needs to be out of the question. Rich in theanine, an amino acid which is a fool-proof stress reliever, caffeine-free green tea promotes more restful sleeping patterns.
7. Lemon zest and mint tea
Boil crushed mint leaves and lemon zest in water, and that’s it. The tranquilising properties of lemon and mint will ease out things for you–so that you can sleep your ass off.
