Insomnia Tips from an Insomniac
I have always had trouble sleep, just like my mother. We all have different reasons why we have insomnia. It affects around a third of all adults. Sometimes it is temporary e.g. if you lose a loved one. Sometimes there is chronic insomnia e.g. if you have an overly active mind or anxiety.
Plus there are many other causes of insomnia, such as when you are experiencing mental of physical pain. Or you could be leading a sedentary lifestyle leaving your body awake at night, despite you feeling tired.
The tips below are just a few things I have learned over the years, which should be of use to most people experiencing insomnia.

Insomnia Help Videos
At the end of this article is a helpful video from the Insomnia Help Videos YouTube channel. I recommend you subscribe to the channel and use other videos from YouTube. I always like to end my getting ready for bed routine with a sleep aid video, or sleep audio.
There are lots of different ones that can help e.g. white noise, ASMR, guided sleep meditation videos, nature videos, bedtime stories and much more. It is best to make your own playlist of what works for you, as we all react differently to different types of videos, there isn't one perfect video for everyone.
If you can't sleep the natural way, try the best sleep aid supplement, Stilux Rotundin, which I have written about in another post. It has been my safety net when all else fails and feels safer than other pills.
