Insomnia can happen for a number of reasons that include
both physical and emotional factors. Learning how to enhance your
ability to relax will improve your quality of sleep, and naturally benefit
your quality of wellness and well-being.

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for your overall
wellness and well-being. Research studies have shown that while
you are sleeping, you are downloading information into your long-term
memory bank, creating neurotransmitters that enhance mood
regulation, and even improve anti-aging over the long run.
The health risks associated with high stress and lack of sleep include
increased risk of diabetes and heart problems, weight gain,
inattentiveness during waking hours, depression, as well as
affecting your ability to pay attention and focus, and your ability to take in new information. 

In short, sleep deprivation takes a toll on your whole life.

Effective and natural ways to create wellness and well-being have been practiced
for thousands of years in cultures around the world. Although
sometimes forgotten, they are important tools for creating positive
change in your life.

1. Acupressure Support to Help You Sleep

Acupuncture and acupressure systems from the Orient include many points for treating insomnia. Here are four easy acupressure points at the tipof your fingers before falling asleep.
a) The Body Consciousness Hand Point is from the Jin Shin Jyutsu
system and is located at the base of the thumb pad. It is good for
sleep disorders. Simply place your pinky on the base of your thumb
pad where your wrist meets your palm lightly for a few moments.
b) The Third Eye Point is located directly between the eyebrows, in
the indentation where the bridge of the nose meets the forehead.
Simply place your index finger on this point to relax your central
nervous system and decrease anxiety.
c) The Sea of Tranquility Point is located on the center of the
breastbone three thumb widths up from the base of the bone. This
point relieves nervousness, chest congestion, and anxiety that causes
sleeplessness. Place your index finger on this point while focusing on
your breath and relaxing.
d) Combination Points: Place your right middle fingertip on the
Third Eye Point while placing the fingertips of your left hand on the
Sea of Tranquility Point. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for one
minute.

Lavender is said to ease tension and induce relaxation. In studies
done by Britainā€™s University of Southampton, participants who
diffused lavender oil at night reported a sleep average of 20% better than the placebo group. Recent research done by Wesleyan University in Connecticut, USA confirmed these findings. When
lavender was combined with Roman Chamomile, this blend naturally
supported getting a better night’s sleep.
Here’s How to Use Aromatherapy
a) Use lavender as a scent to wear or use a lavender sachet on your
pillow as essential oil aromatherapy for treating insomnia.
b) Try essential oils for relaxation including sandalwood, Ylang Ylang,
Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Mandarin, Neroli or Orange.
c) Use the plants themselves: Drink chamomile, lemon balm,
hawthorn berry, or leaf tea that you can purchase from a tea shop or health food
store. Eat an orange during the day to reduce anxiety.
d) If anxiety is keeping you awake, take an aromatherapy bath
before bed to start the relaxation process. Be sure the water is warm,
not hot. Some oils to include are Lavender in small amounts,
Chamomile, Ylang-Ylang, Sandalwood, Rose, and Clary Sage. Use a
total of 6 drops of essential oils of your choice overall per bath. Use
the same blend in a diffuser to help you go to sleep.
