Everyone has had a difficult time falling asleep at one point or another, but it becomes a problem when it happens frequently. A lack of sleep can cause difficulty in concentration and problem solving, emotional imbalances, lowered immunity, and serious health issues like stroke, high blood pressure, and heart disease. If you’re having difficulty sleeping, try out these 4 powerful tools plus the guided sleep meditation video at the bottom of this article that can help you fall asleep within minutes:
Isochronic tones help us induce a certain mental state relatively quickly. When you listen to isochronic tones in your headphones, a specific tone at a specific frequency is played over and over again (often under music) so that eventually, your own brainwaves will slow down to mimic the same frequency as the tones. For example, 4hz is the brainwave pattern that is associated with sleep. So if you want to sleep, you would listen to a track with embedded isochronic tones that are at 4hz or less.
Next time you’re having a difficult time sleeping, check out the guided meditation that’s included in the video below. It’s embedded with isochronic tones that are 4hz and lower to help you fall asleep quickly.
Magnesium is a powerful mineral that helps us relax on many levels. It works at the physical level by relieving sore/stiff/cramping muscles and at the emotional level by soothing emotions of anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, it’s estimated that as many as half of the US population is deficient in this mineral.
Some symptoms of magnesium deficiency are:
– Chronic fatigue
– Muscle stiffness
– Muscle cramps
– Behavioural disturbances
Adding extra magnesium through magnesium-rich foods or supplementing is a great way to help you sleep better at night.
Essential oils can be used many ways for many purposes. If you’re having a hard time falling asleep you can try putting essential oils in a diffuser or nebulizer so that you can inhale it throughout the night. You can also put a few drops in a carrier oil and massage that onto your skin for a few minutes before going to bed.
Some essential oils that I find helpful for sleep are:
- Lavender/eucalyptus (for those who cannot fall asleep because of pain/physical discomfort/ nasal congestion or difficulty breathing)
- Lavender/Chamomile (for those who cannot fall asleep because of intense emotions like anxiety/depression)
- Bergamot (for those who cannot fall asleep because of mental chatter)
Meditation is an extremely useful tool, as it targets many of the main problems people face when they cannot fall asleep. It helps calm the mind, balance the mood, promote feelings of well-being, and relax the body. There are hundreds of studies proving just how beneficial meditation is for both mind and spirit.
I’ve included a guided meditation specifically for sleep in the video below (at the 5:30 mark).
