Dear, it is best not to depend on sleep medicines for sleep disturbance
as in long run, they lead to dependency and increased
disturbance. Never rely on alcohol for sleep. Some people use alcohol to help them sleep, but that's not a good idea. At first, drinking alcohol may make you sleepy and help you fall asleep. But when you drink alcohol, you are more likely to wake up later in the night and have a hard time falling back asleep. This can leave you feeling tired the next day. The following tips help one to easily get into sleep:
a) have bath regularly in evening after coming from work or before going to bed.
B) do not engage mind in active work or stressful talking at night before bed time.
C) do not engage mind in too much of computer work in night before bed time (for example, do not do stock market work in night).
D) do not read or view illicit or pornographic material at any time preferably.
E) do not take heavy meals in night. Best is to have heavy breakfast, lighter lunch and lightest dinner to maintain stomach rhythm which affects sleep. Vegetarian diet
is best for good sleep.
F) do not over engage mind in television in night.
G) do not smoke cigarette, chew tobacco, tobacco containing masala, or similar intoxicants which can disturb
rhythm of mind and disturb sleep cycle.
H) no tea or coffee in night (preferably cocoa and caffeine containing drinks should be totally avoided for best results).
I) listen to relaxing music and even then if you do not get sleep, then hear soothing stories or nice talks from our rich
vedic literature. You may stream audio music and talks.
J) read books which not only calm the mind but also nourish the thinking process, such as from our rich oldest vedic literature.
