Do you find it difficult to sleep and fall asleep at night? In Wellness and Beauty Market we will give you some tips so that you can achieve this naturally and without having to take any kind of medication.
Falling asleep can become a real nightmare when you spend hours and hours trying to sleep and you can’t get any rest. One of the most commonly used remedies are sleeping pills, along with other medicines, as they are a very effective remedy, but not the most appropriate, as their use must be controlled and limited. That is why we recommend using other types of remedies to fall asleep without the use of pills or medicines. Take note of our suggestions and you’ll sleep like a baby.
Soft smells help us to calm down and sleep better. You can use candles, incense or an air freshener to make your room smell pleasant and relaxing. You can also take a bath with a mild-smelling shower gel. The most commonly used scent in aromatherapy to help you fall asleep is the scent of lavender, which according to several studies has been shown to be very effective as a relaxant, as it helps you to fall asleep faster and deeper.
Drinking a warm drink before going to sleep helps you to fall asleep, as long as these drinks do not contain caffeine, such as tea or coffee. An infusion is very easy and quick to prepare, and there are many types of infusions to relax you, such as chamomile or valerian. After drinking it, you will notice how much faster you can fall asleep and you will get a deeper and more restful sleep.
If you smoke before going to bed, you will not be able to fall asleep easily, as tobacco contains nicotine, a stimulant, as does caffeine.
A suitable mattress
If you are not comfortable with your mattress, it is likely that you will find it difficult to fall asleep. It is very important that you feel comfortable while you sleep, because as well as influencing insomnia problems, leading to tiredness and sleepiness during the day, the state of our mattress also affects our physical health, because with a bad posture on a mattress that is not suitable, we can suffer from muscle and joint problems.
A good mattress has to adapt to the shape of your body, so that you feel how it envelops you and helps you to relax. Also, if the mattress is viscoelastic, all the better, as these mattresses have the ability to eliminate pressure points while you sleep, so you will wake up as good as new, without any pain or discomfort.

Having the right pillow is an essential factor when it comes to sleep, as a good pillow can help reduce neck and headaches. A viscoelastic pillow is the ideal complement for a pleasant and restful sleep, as it is able to adapt to your body perfectly.
Hot and relaxing bath
This remedy is very simple and effective, all you need to do is take a hot bath or shower before going to bed. This is due to the temperature that our body reaches with the bath, as when we get out of the shower, our body temperature decreases slightly. This makes the brain sleepy, making it much easier to rest. Also, if you follow one of our previous tips on aromatherapy, if you use a gel with a relaxing aroma in your hot bath, you won’t have any trouble sleeping.
