Between 30 and 35 percent of all adults have some brief or minor symptoms of insomnia while 10 percent of the global adult population has to deal with chronic insomnia. This data is from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and so it is a reliable and accurate representation of the high prevalence of this sleep disorder. Most people who have the problem will tend to brush it off as usual lack of sleep, but it is a serious condition which needs attention.

The good news is that there are many natural remedies for insomnia that can be very useful for people struggling with the problem. The solutions range from lifestyles changes to the use of herbs, and they include the following six.

Meditation

Anxiety and stress are a part of most people’s regular day, but they are also some of the leading causes of insomnia. If you are worried about something, it becomes very hard to sleep because you cannot achieve the right mindset necessary for sleeping.

However, meditation can help you get rid of the anxiety and stress because research proves that it is very effective in calming both the body and mind. And so, sparing a few minutes for meditation before bed can help deal with your sleeplessness. Some people do not like or know how to meditate, but yoga or even praying can also be alternatives.

Light Therapy

The body uses light as an indicator of when to sleep and wake up. Human beings have an internal mechanism that controls this function, and the absence of light sends signs to the brain that it is time to sleep. Light therapy is very easy to do as you only need to dim the lights about an hour before going to bed so as to trigger the production of important sleep-inducing hormones like melatonin. You should also expose your body to daylight in the morning to shut down the production of melatonin so as to help it establish a sleep routine.
