Normal Day To Day Practices

Time is Yours

Prepare yourself to spend a peaceful evening. Write your plan on a piece of paper. This will help you to spend a cheerful night. Relax by reading books and taking bath at night. These things will lead you to a proper and peaceful sleep.

Switch Off Your Electronic Items

Switch off all your electronic items 60-90 minutes before sleep. Otherwise, the harmful rays emitted by Mobiles or Televisions can disturb your brain and affect sleep. Never ever place them in your bedroom. Otherwise, you will get the urge to use them.

Avoid Caffeine

Don’t consume caffeine within 6 hours before you sleep. Avoid the habit of taking coffee in the evening after taking some in the morning. These things usually take a toll on your sleep. Instead, try herbal tea, camomile tea. Apart from their taste, they bring you good sleep as well.

Light Dinner

Avoid protein rich food at night. Because they bring digestive problems and affect sleep. Take light dinner consisting of carbohydrates which can trigger insulin secretion which in turn kick-starts the secretion of sleep hormone. Avoid taking oily food.

Water Intake

Drink some water 90 minutes before going to bed. Lots of water results in frequent urination which can disturb sleep.

Skin Maintenance

Apply night creams on your face, chin, and neck before sleep. They slow down the aging of the skin. They prevent fatigue, wrinkles, and stretch marks. After waking up, you will find you face bright and fresh and hence you will be cheerful for the rest of the day.

Taking Bath

Apply oil to the scalp and leave it for some time. After that take bath and wash your scalp with warm water and drink a cup of hot milk to get a peaceful and sound sleep.

Some Tips on Natural Remedies For Sleep Disorders
  • Add spinach to your diet and have dinner at least an hour before sleep.
  • Don’t stay awake during late nights.
  • Avoid taking nap in the middle of the day.
  • Have a quiet Stroll for half an hour after dinner.

    Thank you for the video on the good effects of Himalayan salt. Please let me know whether Himalayan salt has the side effects like common salt for persons suffering from high BP.

    Thanks for such a detailed article

    1. GeeEss!

      Thank you for reading my post and your valuable comment. Himalayan salt is so useful because it contains approximately 86 minerals. It contains a lot of sodium Chloride as well. Therefore precautions should be taken, same as you do for common salt. You can replace common salt with Himalayan salt. But you have to take enough iodine because it has only traces of iodine.


  6. Hi Prabakaran – I really enjoyed your post on natural remedies to help with sleep disorders.  I try to abide to the day to day practices you mentioned, but there are still times when I just cannot get a good nights sleep.  I am very intrigued by the Himalayan salt, sugar, and honey remedy.  I will have to give that one a try.

    Thank you for this information.


  7. Thanks for this informative and helpful post! The post is strictly based on the general problem faced by humanity. From my personal experience, I do have sleep disorders and take medical drugs to sleep well, yet, all these never worked out for my sleepless nights. I also noticed that in my household, majority of us do have the same issue with sleep disorders and we can’t help it. Thanks for suggesting and recommending the natural remedies! I’m working on these right away hoping to get better soon.

  8. Sleep is so important for our bodies to function at its best, when a person is sleep deprived  they can be equated to a drunk person. So many people struggle with insomnia and just getting a good night rest , and often times turn to sleeping pills which can come with a lot of side effects, a very common one being addiction. Many people lack proper sleep hygiene and i am happy you mentioned a few tips in your blog such as putting your electronic away before bed. I really enjoyed reading your blog, best of luck . Great website.

    1. Jamiro!

      Thank you for dropping by. I have seen people engaged with the mobile phones almost full night and finally deprived of sleep. If you are able to manage your stress well, you can overcome insomnia. Practicing Yoga or meditation regularly is also a very good remedy.


  9. Thanks for your post as I’ve been looking at natural remedies for insomnia. I had no idea about the benefits of Himalayan Sea Salt! That’s  amazing. It’s funny isn’t it how ideas can change over time – as I was growing up we were always taught that salt was bad so we eliminated it from everything we ate. Now, the thinking is that our body does need it, and that there are actual benefits from pink salt. Good to know because it’s also so tasty! 

    I’m going to to give your first recipe a try with the salt and honey, I’m intrigued to see how it works. I will let you know!

    1. Melissa!

      The Himalayan Salt is not sea salt. It is derived from Himalayan Rock mines and superior to sea salt because it contains minerals. Thanks for visiting my post.

  10. Hi Prabakaran

    I had never heard of the salt and sugar remedy you speak about in this post. I found it really interesting to read about. I know a few people who have severe sleep issues so will definitely pass on your advice and blog post details to them.

    I don’t usually find it very difficult to go to sleep unless it’s too hot but I am definitely a restless sleeper, waking up a number of times during the night. I am sure this is probably due to stress. Do you know of some natural remedies for stress that may be useful?


  11. Did you mean don’t drink water 90 minutes before sleep? Also, do you know if listening to meditation sounds like nature sounds will help with sleep disorders? I hear it helps people but I don’t really know if there is scientific studies behind it.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

    1. Drinking water before sleep makes you wake up in the midnight in if you are an insomnia patient you will not sleep further. Therefore at least 60 minutes before sleeping will do. I know about the meditation sounds which not only enhances sleep but also good for overall health.  I also have written an article also about it, which you can read.

      Thanks for commenting Jessie
