Drink This Ayurvedic Spiced Milk To Help Relax Your Body For Better And Deeper Sleep

Over 60% of Americans experience sleeping problems, every single night. Even worse, chronic insomnia affects a whopping 20-30% of American adults. It’s safe to say, Americans are having trouble getting their shut-eye.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, insomnia is the consistent lack of healthy restful sleep. It can be associated with health ailments, like asthma, depression and anxiety. However, insomnia can also be triggered by your everyday behaviours.

While many chalk their insomnia up to an unsolvable problem, as it turns out, there are a number of small and simple tweaks you can make to your daily routine that will ensure a deeper more restful sleep.

There is, however, a right and wrong way to go about this. We’ve got you covered! Here are some sleeping tricks to avoid and those to practice. Incorporate these into your lifestyle and you’ll be sleeping like a baby in no time.

 

How NOT To Cure Insomnia

Turning to alcohol or the over-the-counter sleep aids, is often the solution of choice for insomniacs. However, both of these have proven to be dangerous and ineffective.

The main ingredient in over-the-counter sleeping pills is antihistamine, generally taken for allergies and cold symptoms. Sleep experts advise against these chemical-laden solutions because they are often ineffective, have harmful side effects and there is a lack of long-term scientific research on their effects.

Relying on depressants, such as pain relievers or alcohol, interferes with your natural sleep cycle and is dangerous over long-periods of time. While these can make you sleepy, they are detrimental to your quality of sleep!

And, say no to afternoon coffee (the caffeine sticks in your system for over seven hours and increases nighttime urination).

 

How TO Cure Insomnia

First and foremost, it’s important that you take sleep seriously and make quality sleep a top priority in your life. Without this, no tip or trick will stick. That said, there are a number of natural and time-tested tips to ensure that you are solving the problem in a natural and healthful way.

 

 

Deep Sleep Herbal Milk

What You Need:

  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chopped dates
  • 2 tsp chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • ½ tsp saffron
  • 1-2 tsp ghee
  • 1/8th tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp raw honey

What To Do:

  1. Add all the ingredients to milk and bring it to boil slowly. You can add 1/8 tsp of shatavari or ashwagandha to the milk. Once the milk, herbs, and spices are cooked. Turn off the flame, let it cool a little before adding raw honey.
  2. Drink one cup of this hot milk each night for 3 months to rebuild ojas levels and support sleep patterns.
  3. You may substitute milk with non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut or any other milk of your choice. Though you won’t get the benefits of the milk peptides, you’ll have a vehicle for the ojas-building foods and herbs, and some calming benefits from the warmth of the milk.
