5 Unusual Ways To Improve Your Sleep


We live in a health-conscious society. Today, more and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of healthy living, from exercising to eating right. We practice meditation, do yoga, juice, and…sleep?

That’s right, one of the cornerstones to good health is adequate sleep. People who get a good night’s sleep often have better memory and mood, are not as stressed or anxious, and seem to be more productive and creative. For some of us, a restful sleep is difficult to achieve. We may get only a few of hours, or suffer from restless nights and insomnia. Here are five uncommon tips so you get to that deep state of sleep.

1) Sleep with Crystals

Oftentimes, the reason we have trouble sleeping is due to our overactive minds. Thoughts fill our heads, keeping us awake long after we lay down in bed. Crystals and gemstones that have high vibrations work with our upper chakras, especially the Third Eye Chakra, which is associated with our mind. Good Third Eye crystals include Amethyst, Azurite, Labradorite, Moonstone, and Flourite.

2) Change your Sleeping Direction

One of the principles of Feng Shui is that directions are associated with specific energies. The way we absorb these energies is reliant on the direction we face. When we sleep, our own energy field is lowered, so we are more exposed to the energies of our environment.

North is a good direction to face when we sleep; it is ideal for rest and relaxation. It helps calm one’s self and promotes peace. Since these energies are primarily absorbed through our Crown Chakra, it is important to have our heads face north at night.

3) Add a Tapestry

Another Feng Shui concept is the idea of Yin and Yang energy. Yin energy is passive, feminine, and relaxing. This is the perfect energy for a bedroom, as you want a space that is calm and peaceful. Fabrics are connected with Yin energy. They help slow down the movement of chi (energy) within a space. Hanging a tapestry above your head can help slow down and ground the vibrations around your bed to aid in achieving calming Yin energy.

4) Use Lavender Oil

Research on lavender oil shows that it can help reduce anxiety and insomnia. This scent’s power to relax the body and mind makes it a great tool to help with achieving peaceful sleep. Try placing a few drops of essential oil on your pillow, or into an aromatherapy diffuser.

5) Remove Electronics

There have been a number of studies showing the harmful effects of having our electronic devices nearby during bedtime. One of the issues with electronics is that they produce light, which messes up our body’s natural circadian rhythm at night. This tricks our brains into staying awake and not achieving a deeper sleep state.

Another negative of electronics is that they produce EMF’s (electromagnetic frequencies), which interfere with the REM stage of sleep when we dream and store memories. Electronics, such as cell phones and laptops, emit frequencies at very high rates. When we sleep, our own frequency drops and slows down. Sleeping next to our cell phone or other electronics prevent us from maintaining these lower frequencies needed for sleep. So, you must make sure these gadgets are placed in another room before you go to sleep.
