Hi Everyone! One of the most sought after medical help is due to lack of sleep. Yes! Insomnia! It's a terrible thing for those suffering from deprivation of sleep, night after night. Listen to today's podcast and learn how- by adding extra steps to your bedtime routine- that you can actually get a good night's sleep again. . Below is summary of topics presented on this podcast.
1. Take Inventory of your bedroom:
Remove the TV from your room
Invest in great bedding-
Add Blinds or shades that allow the room to remain dark until you open the blinds.
Keep room slightly on the cooler side.
Add Lavender or other soothing scent. If you prefer -like myself-no scent in the room okay too.
Add white noise to buffer the outside sound. You can use earplugs but do so with caution.
Remove electronics that shine a light such as an electric alarm clock. Remove or cover light.
Remove items such as a wall clock that may makes movement sounds-the ticking sound.
2. Sleep Rituals
Create a bed time. A time that you will retire each night.
Take a warm shower
Make a cup of tea- Chamomile, Valerian, Linden Tea leaves-no sugar-Check with your Doctor.
Investigate adding Melatonin or other herbal sleep aids but do so with caution.
Wear 100 percent cotton pajama
Lightly Stretch before sleep.
No noise better but meditation or soothing recording okay too.
3. Consult with your medical practitioner most especially if you are taking medication.
4. Be consistent in your bedtime ritual and create a healthy habit in 30 days.
5. Before you close your eyes say your prayers and ask God to help you sleep in peace.
6. Do not eat heavy at dinner time. If a little hungry at bedtime roll up a slice of organic turkey.
7. Get out of your own head-stop taking your worries to bed with you.

Fulfill my needs for mental and physical restoration so I may wake up ready for another beautiful day which I hope you allow me to live to to enjoy with praise and thanks to you. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen..
