If you are looking for immediate results to relax your body without the sugar, caffeine, nicotine or pills, here are some natural ways to get a good night’s rest:

1. Slow down your breathing

ir?t=swtn 20&l=am2&o=1&a=B0007YH77SIf you are not familiar with taking long deep breaths, then this strategy might be a little tough at first. To begin, try breathing in through your nose for 6 seconds and then breathing out through your nose or mouth for another 6 seconds.

Do this repeatedly until your body feels calm. Practise breathing slowly every day for at least one minute and relax your nerves regularly.

2. Read a book

Reading requires a lot of focus and it is impossible to do so successfully while being anxious. Make an attempt to read a novel or an educational journal just before bedtime.

Your nerves will relax very quickly while your brain tries to comprehend the information which you have presented.


Watch. Belong. Transform.

3. Write in a journal

ir?t=swtn 20&l=am2&o=1&a=B01E9HP1SUJust before you go to bed, clear your thoughts by writing in a journal. Try to recall all the activities of your day both positive and negative and jot them down in writing.

If one activity needs more attention than the others then flesh it out as much as possible. Feel free to be yourself at this time and say all the things you wish to say in your journal. Putting your thoughts on paper helps to clear your head and relax your body.

4. Listen to soothing music

Anxiety may be caused by reasons that you can’t put your finger on, but a great song that makes you feel to dance and laugh will calm your nerves any day.

Instead of staying awake all night, put on some calming music at an appropriate volume or wear headphones that will send you off into dream land quickly.

5. Take a warm bath

Maybe you can’t relax because your mind and body are too hyper. A long warm bath immediately calms your muscles and slows down your breathing. Be careful not to put the water too hot because you can raise your blood pressure.

6. Exercise

Anxiety is sometimes your body’s way of telling you to get up and stretch those lazy muscles. Take a walk around the savannah, do some yoga poses, try some routine aerobics, or make easy changes to your lifestyle to keep fit.
