Tips for better sleep :)


Creating a comfort zone at home is key to better sleep, whether you have fibromyalgia or not. It's all about easing into bedtime feeling relaxed -- and staying relaxed so you sleep through the night.
These 10 tips can help people sleep better:

  1. Enjoy a soothing (warm) bath in the evening.
  2. Brush your body with a loofah or long-handled brush in the bath.
  3. Ease painful tender points with a self-massage device (like a tennis ball).
  4. Do yoga and stretching exercises to relax.
  5. Listen to calming music.
  6. Meditate to tame intrusive thoughts and tension.
  7. Sleep in a darkened room. Try an eye mask if necessary.
  8. Keep the room as quiet as possible (or use a white-noise machine).
  9. Make sure the room temperature is comfortable.
  10. Avoid foods that contain caffeine, including teas, colas, and chocolate.

Chamomile tea and many other herbal teas which are native to Europe, South America or India help sleep.
Why? Soothing your stomach is a good start to relax body and mind. I live on Tenerife Island which gives off much energy. Many health shops help people to compensate for this extra energy to help better sleep at night by selling sleep teas.
