10. Take a relaxing bath
This is one of the oldest remedies, but it works, especially if the cause of the insomnia is simple stress or over worked muscles preventing one from relaxing. Adding bath salts can help as well as adding an essential oil to the water. Remember to just relax in the bath, not exhaust yourself and fall asleep in the tub.
With any one of these small changes, insomnia can be controlled and the need for pills minimized, possibly eliminated. Of course a doctor should be consulted if insomnia is caused by a medical condition, since in such a case, medication may be needed. Even if that is true, these methods can still help in producing a good night’s sleep. And sleep is always an important part of good overall health.
