DR. MICHAEL’S TOP FOUR TRICKS TO DE­FEAT IN­SOM­NIA:

Female (Malaysia) - - HEALTH -

Use blue-blocker glasses when you’re scrolling through your elec­tronic de­vices be­fore bed. Start wear­ing them an hour or so be­fore sleep so that it doesn’t stop your mela­tonin pro­duc­tion from oc­cur­ring and it’ll help you fall asleep eas­ily.

Med­i­tate to re­lax your­self if anx­i­ety arises. Your heart rate has to be be­low 60 in or­der to en­ter into a state of un­con­scious­ness. So if your heart is al­ways beat­ing very fast, just take a deep breath. Count back­wards from 300 by threes. It’s math­e­mat­i­cally com­pli­cated and you can’t think of any­thing else. Since it’s bor­ing, you’ll fall asleep im­me­di­ately. Mag­ne­sium helps you sleep. Whip up some ba­nana tea and drink it half an hour be­fore bed. Cut both ends of a ba­nana and place it into boil­ing wa­ter for around 10 min­utes and drink!
