Insomnia was a big problem for me, and if you’re suffering with high anxiety and stress, I have no doubt it will be a problem for you too. I used to lie awake at night; eyes wide open, staring at the ceiling wondering why I couldn’t sleep. Thoughts used to race through my mind at a million miles an hour, and I found it impossible to comfortably drop off to sleep.
Along with the obvious things like not drinking caffeine at least four hours before you go to bed, and avoiding stimulants like drinking alcohol / smoking, there is a tip that helped me sleep and beat insomnia I’d like to share with you.
That tip is MILK.
Take a glass of warm milk with you to bed.
Milk contains vitamin B2, B12, antioxidants, protein and calcium, all ingredients that have a calming effect on your body because they help reduce blood pressure. Milk also contains potassium, which can also help reduce stress by lowering your blood pressure.
(P.S. I like to use organic milk - not only because it’s much better for you, but also because it helps the lovely cows that produce it.)
