Whenever we toss and turn and fail to fall asleep, we sometimes jump out of bed mattress, head to the kitchen, refresh ourselves with a glass of water, and continue our battle with insomnia. However, even if we manage to get into a comfortable sleeping position, our brain refuses to shut down and rest.
This is when you should upgrade your beverage when you take that late night trip to the kitchen. We’re not talking about drowning yourself in alcohol until you pass out. What you need are those beverages made from natural ingredients like fruits, vegetables and herbs. Not only are they healthy, but they’re delicious as well! If you have a full stock of ingredients but have no idea on which would go best with this and that, try out some of the quick recipes listed below:
Note: In the absence of a tea strainer, you can simply place the herbs in a bowl and pour the hot water on it. Then after 10 to-15 minutes, pour the tea into a cup, using your standard kitchen strainer to remove the buds.
Note: If you haven’t already noticed, the procedure is basically the same as that for the chamomile and lavender tea. And since the recipe is so undeniably easy, be sure to shop for the ingredients required for both drinks!
Though believed to be a natural energy drink, coconut juice can also hasten your trip to Dreamland. It’s rich in potassium and magnesium, which are minerals that aid in relaxing muscles. Also loaded with vitamin B, pure coconut water helps alleviate stress levels.
When it comes to getting ready for bed, one glass of milk before bedtime almost always does the trick! Both fresh and powdered will do as long as it’s warm enough. You can even spike it with honey for extra flavor and effectiveness.
Aside from the fact that these beverages are certified to draw you closer to your precious bed, they’re also a healthier and tastier alternative for unhealthy sleeping pills and factory-processed drinks that don’t always work. So even before insomnia gets a chance to ruin your night, stir up these drinks and assure yourself a nice, long sleep.
