Insomnia – the battle of sleep that is hard to win. At some point in your life, you’ve liked had insomnia. Those nights when no matter what you do, there is no sleep coming your way.

Instead, you toss and turn, count sheep, read a book, or everything else you can come up with to make yourself tired.

Having sleepless nights are frustrating as they affect your next day. Not having enough energy leaves you feeling down, exhausted, and troubles concentrating.

If you find you have sleepless nights more often than restful nights, it may be worthwhile to visit your family doctor. Otherwise, we have six tips that may help you battle insomnia.

CBN Oil

Cannabinol (CBD oil) is found in hemp plants along with the more popular one, Cannabidiol (CBD). It’s not to get confused with marijuana that someone smokes to get high. CBD and CBN oil do not produce the same high feeling, yet they still offer many benefits.

CBN oil can help aid in sleeping. Although more research is needed, there has been evidence that CBN can help those who struggle with sleep.

If you want to go this route, find the best CBN products from a reputable source.

Watch What You Eat and Drink at Night

Are you consuming a dark cup of coffee shortly before you go to bed? That could be the culprit.

Particular food and beverages can hinder your sleep, especially caffeine. Alcohol can also cause sleep issues, even though the first few hours of consumption can make you feel sleepy. So, try eliminating anything caffeine or alcohol-related to see if that has any effect.

Have a Regular Exercise Routine

Really, there isn’t much downfall to exercising. With all it’s health benefits, it’s no surprise to read that exercise can also improve your sleep quality and length.

Regular aerobic activity increases body temperature, and it has been shown that the post-exercise temperature drop can help promote falling asleep.

Get Stress Under Control

Stress is a common factor with sleeping issues. Too much stress keeps the body tense and can cause you to keep your mind busy when you need it to be quiet. So, before going to bed, try incorporating relaxation techniques like meditation, breathing or imagery.

Keep the Bedroom Peaceful

The environment where you sleep also plays a factor. You should keep your bedroom at a cooler temperature and noises and lighting to a minimum. The fewer disturbances you have, the better the chance of you falling asleep (and staying asleep).

A peaceful bedroom also means minimizing any activities that aren’t bedroom related (sleep and intimacy moments). Doing homework, working, or playing on a computer can throw your body out of whack and cause sleep disturbances.

Get Out of Bed

If nothing seems to work and you’re still laying there sleepless, it’s time to just get out of bed. There’s no sense in laying there wild-eyed, worrying about the lack of sleep your getting.

Instead, get out of bed and do something that can relax you. After that, try to go to sleep and see if that helped.

Sleeping troubles often isn’t anything too serious. However, chronic insomnia that you cannot beat could be a sign of something else going on, both mentally and physically. Pay attention to your sleeping habits to see if it’s worth noting to your doctor.
