1. How to recite your mantra

Every evening, in the quiet and stillness of your stress-free room, recite some words that you believe will aid your search for a more peaceful and fulfilling sleep.

Those words are your “sleep mantra.”

2. Letting go of your thoughts

Allow your thoughts to drift away from your daily troubles during your bedtime routine.

Studies show that repeating this mantra over and over again before bed increases feelings of joy.

And this reduces stress hormones like cortisol, as well as anxiety-related hormones such as adrenaline and noradrenaline – all of which are key contributors to insomnia!

3. A bit of gentle meditation helps

Meditation can also be a great way to induce a deep sleep and reduce stress levels.

Focus on your breath as you inhale and exhale slowly.

This is a great technique for relaxation because it forces you to concentrate only on your breathing.

Similar exercises have been shown to reduce stress by 60%, while also improving circulation, strength, immunity and flexibility to help you get more quality sleep.

4. Remember gratitude

As you recite your sleep mantra to yourself, focus on what you are grateful for when you say your mantra.

This will help to re-align your thoughts.

Four more tips on how to fall asleep even faster

1. Avoid screen time before bed

Screen-based devices like phones, computers, and tablets can emit blue light.

And this can interfere with your body clock and prevent you from falling asleep on time, and thus from getting a good night’s sleep.

If you’re worried that screens are keeping you up at night, or you find yourself struggling to fall asleep, try limiting screen time.

Or at the very least, put your phone in airplane mode.

Let go of the daytime when it’s bedtime!

2. Get exercise during the day

Sleep is important for your health, but getting exercise and sunlight throughout the day is also crucial.

You don’t necessarily have to go to the gym or outside for a jog, but just try to get up and move around for 10-15 minutes every couple of hours to get your blood flowing.

Exercise can also improve the quality and quantity of sleep.

Even better, regular exercise reduces stress, and is a natural mood booster.

3. Keep a sleep diary

It’s always good to keep a sleep diary, because it will help you keep track of your sleeping pattern.

It will also give you a more accurate assessment of how well you’re sleeping.

Likewise, it’s important to write down what time you go to bed, how many times you wake up each night, and how much sleep you get each night.

4. Slow down

Learning to slow down, and balance our external environment’s influence on our internal clock is a key to great sleep.

These 10 great sleep tips will help you cure your insomnia starting right now

sleep tips - sleeping woman

Take your “peaceful sleep” from good to better by following the 10 tips below.

These are proven tips that will help you fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly, and wake up feeling energized.

These suggestions will have the most noticeable effect on your sleep if you follow them for at least two weeks before assessing your progress.

1. Write it down

The first step to sleeping better is identifying the reasons for your insomnia.

This is a vital part of curing it, and you should write down what’s making you feel anxious or stressed so that, in time, those feelings will lessen on their own.

2. Practice deep breathing techniques by day

Breathe in deeply through your nose, and exhale in such a way that your stomach expands on the inhale and contracts as you exhale.

3. Try to be strict about bedtime

Set a “curfew” for yourself so that it’s easier for your body to adjust its sleep cycle accordingly.

It will also help with feeling less tired during the day, which leads to more stress!

So go to bed around the same time every night (and make sure it is early enough that you are getting a full seven or eight hours of sleep).

And try to maintain a regular bedtime schedule, even on weekends or days off from work.

4. Create a bedtime ritual

This is an important part of your new sleep routine.

The beauty of creating a bedtime ritual is that it will become something you look forward to!

You may even find yourself already feeling more relaxed before you even begin your routine.

5. Get some exercise in the daytime

You don’t have to go out running, just get up from sitting or lying down, and move around a little bit before going to bed.

Doing this helps regulate blood flow throughout the body in order make you feel better rested.

If you are feeling healthy while awake, then it only makes sense that you will feel better when you sleep.

6. Avoid eating heavy meals right before bed

Doing so can cause indigestion, leading to uncomfortable sleeping patterns.

7. Avoid caffeine in afternoons/evenings


8. Limit alcohol intake later than 6 pm

You might drink some red wine early in the evening, as it has some benefits when consumed before going to bed. But that’s it!

9. Drink (warm) milk before bed

Milk contains tryptophan, which can help increase feelings of calmness that promote sleepiness.

Drinking milk will also fill up your stomach, so it doesn’t distract you from falling asleep during the night.

10. Don’t nap!

If you are having trouble falling asleep at night, make sure that you’re not taking naps during the day!

It’s a common misconception that by napping, your body will adjust and fall into an easier cycle of nighttime sleeping.

In fact, it does just the opposite. Napping increases daytime sleepiness, which makes it harder to go to sleep again at night.

And remember: your body has a natural sleep rhythm, so don’t fight it!


We hope this sleep mantra overview has have helped you learn how to have a good night, go to bed on time, and learn how to get better at sleeping.
