Not sleeping? Here are some helpful tips to help you get a better nights sleep the natural way!

  8. Stick to a same sleep schedule and routine.

  9. Use the bed only for sleep and sex.

  10. Limit daytime naps.

  11. If you use tobacco in any form, quit.

  12. Use alcohol cautiously.


Are there foods that I can have to help me sleep better? So glad you asked that!


Here are some of the best foods and drinks you can have before bed to enhance your quality of sleep:

  1. Almonds.

  2. Turkey.

  3. Chamomile tea.

  4. Kiwi fruit.

  5. Tart cherry juice.

  6. Fatty fish.

  7. Walnuts.

  8. Passionflower tea.

  9. White rice.

These foods can help as well:

Dairy products: Dairy products, such as a glass of milk, cottage cheese, and plain yogurt, are known sources of tryptophan. Milk has been shown to improve sleep in older adults, especially when paired with light exercise.

Bananas: Banana peels contain tryptophan and the fruit itself is a modest source of magnesium. Both these properties may help you get a good night’s sleep.

Oatmeal: Similar to rice, oatmeal is high in carbs with a bit more fiber and has been reported to induce drowsiness when consumed before bed. Additionally, oats are a known source of melatonin which is a natural sleep aide.

To reap the benefits of sleep-enhancing foods and drinks, it may be best to consume them 2–3 hours before bed. Eating immediately before going to sleep may cause digestive issues, such as acid reflux.


Good Night to all and to all a Good Night Sleep!
