Sleep is Vitally Important!

Sleep is Vitally Important!

When getting ready for a night's sleep, I start about 1 hour before bed, take a hot bath, then towel off and put on extremely loose clothing. I stretch for about 10 minutes and then put on a tv show that I have seen a thousand times and pretty much know by heart.


I have a DVR and normally it is a Family Guy or Futurama, you could do the same thing with a tape or DVD. I then sip tension tamer tea in bed, while I watch the show; I usually take very small sips so that my bladder does not wake me at 2 am.

This routine gives me a sense of comfort and familiarity. Usually about 20 minutes into my television show I fall asleep. One of the best things that I figured out was that I needed to set the sleep timer on my television for 30 minutes past the normal time I fall asleep.

I do this in order to ensure that I am not awakened in the middle of the night by a loud cartoon or some sort of static noise. For a DVD you could risk being woken up grouchy from the repetitive title screen music.

Tension tamer tea is a tea heavy in chamomile. Another great tip for those really hard to rest nights is to go for a walk before the hot bath. Then the body is tired and the mind gets a chance to clear.

Melatonin is a popular supplement but it often gives me odd dreams. I really recommend getting into a familiar routine that gets your mind calm because you know exactly what is going to happen next, every single night. Consistency is extremely important.

HGH Supplement Protocol and Sleep

by Rich
(Pittsburgh, PA)

I use a combination of supplements when getting prepared for sleep.

I am 57 and am in pretty good shape for my age. Nightly I take 3 grams of L-Dopa, 3 grams of GABA, 6mg.of Melatonin and 50-100 mg.of DHEA.

I sleep like a rock hardly ever waking to use the bathroom, sleeping right through. I also find that the combo helps maintain muscle mass and cognitive skills.

Restful Sleep With Just a Spoonful of Sugar!

by Erin
(Walnut Creek, CA)

This may sound like an odd way to fall asleep, but I find it peaceful and calming.

My trick is to warm a cup of milk, classic I know, and then add a spoonful of honey. Stir until it dissolves completely and what you have is a sweet, easy-to-make relaxant that always calms my mind enough for me to cozy under my sheets.

Check out these two effective natural solutions for sleep problems.
