Some people struggle to fall asleep at night, which can take its toll on their health and wellbeing. Learning how to fall asleep fast can help.
It is normal to take around 10-20 minutes to fall asleep. Some variation between people is not necessarily a sign of a problem. However, anyone routinely struggling to fall asleep may have a sleep disorder, such as insomnia.
The good news is, there is a simple mixture which can help you sleep like a baby.
– 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
– ¼ teaspoon of raw honey
– 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
How to prepare and use the mixture?
There are 2 options for you.
Combine honey and coconut oil in a bowl and add some salt. Mix well. Consume one tbsp. of the mixture, and then have a glass of water.
Take coconut oil and raw honey separately, and have a glass of water. Then you can add sea salt in a small cup of water and consume it.
In case you wake up in the middle of the night, take the mixture again and you will fall back asleep in an hour or less.
Why you should try this mixture?
Coconut oil is rich in healthy fats which supply your body with energy during the night. Consuming it before going to sleep prevents waking up hungry. It also prevents increasing of the blood sugar levels which often is the cause for sleeping disorders.
Salt has the ability to reduce the levels of stress hormones. It stimulates the production of energy which the body needs during the night. Normal levels of sodium in the blood lowers the secretion of adrenaline and cortisol.
Honey improves the quality of your sleep. It provides proper amount of storage of liver glycogen for the brain. When there is lack of glycogen to provide energy for the brain, the adrenal glands release more stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. High amount of these hormones cause sleeping disorders.
