Do you struggle to fall asleep? Science has a solution for you
Tossing and turning every night? Us too.
The struggle to fall asleep has been haunting us lately and there isn’t enough coffee in the world to mend our sleepy heads in the morning.
All we want is a good night’s sleep. Is that too much to ask for?
If, like us, you have trouble falling asleep at night then fear not, because scientists have discovered quite the simple solution.
And it won’t cost you a penny!
One of the main things that keeps us up at night is our worried minds. We are constantly fretting about everything and anything, whether it’s an argument with our other half or fears of not being able to pay this month’s phone bill.
There’s always something on our mind that stops us from snoozing peacefully.
But there’s something you can do to ease this problem – write your thoughts down.
Healthy Ireland recommends penning your fears and worries on a piece of paper before your head hits the pillow.
It is simple but effective. Many people even use writing as a form of therapy.
Women struggle to sleep more than men (no surprise there) so why not keep a notebook or even a scrap of paper and a pen by your bed?
Then if your mind is abuzz with anxious thoughts, all you need to do is scribble them down and try to get them out of your system.
Have you tried this method before? Did it work for you?
We cannot wait to give it a go and look forward to catching some well-needed z’s.
