However, not everything works for everyone, but there are actually a number of natural sleep aids that have been proven to work.
So the next time you find yourself tossing and turning it’s helpful to know what actually works versus what solutions are avoidable.
Sipping a cup of chamomile tea is more than just a relaxing evening ritual. Many studies have shown that chamomile can be used effectively as a mild sedative that helps to relax people as well as relieve anxiety
Melatonin regulates our sleep and wake cycle. By taking a supplement allows our body to get back in sync.
Lavender is the trick here, as studies have proven that it aids in sleep. It's also an inexpensive, nontoxic way to slip into a peaceful slumber. Find a spray with real lavender and spritz it on your pillow before bedtime, or buy a lavender-filled pillow.
As a form of mind-quieting physical activity, yoga is the best way to unwind before bed. And while there aren't exactly scientific studies showing a regular yoga practice can help you get more or better sleep, we do know that yoga does wonders for relaxation.
