The more you worry about not sleeping, the more your mind works and you do not stop thinking. I spent too many nights this way and I needed to put an end to this bad sleep habit. I came across this delicious tea recipe and it really improved my cycle.
Some medications can also cause insomnia. Pain medications, antihistamines and heart and blood pressure medications are among the many causes that contribute to sleep loss. Indeed, some medications can make you sleepy at first, but they can also trigger frequent urges to go to the bathroom or cause anxiety that can still disturb your rest.
Boil bananas before going to bed:
How it works?
Bananas, especially peels, are rich in potassium and magnesium. Although magnesium helps prevent sleep disturbances, magnesium and potassium work together to relax muscles. In fact, magnesium is one of the best minerals for relaxation!
Do not forget that this recipe is made from 100% organic bananas. Bananas that are not organic are loaded with harmful pesticides and since we encourage you to eat boiled skin, it should not contain chemicals.
The preparation of this tea takes less than 10 minutes and can be drunk every night before bedtime.

You can eat the boiled banana leftovers in your tea. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on it and eat the fruit, with the skin if you want, to increase its soothing and relaxing effects … Not to mention that it makes a delicious dessert!
Why sleeping pills are bad
In desperation, many of us have resorted to sleeping pills and almost half of the US population suffers from insomnia or sleep disorders, no wonder. In Europe, nearly 7 out of 10 workers say they wake up at night, according to an Opinionway poll for the Nouvel Observateur. In perpetual quest for sleep … These disorders affect 12 million French , or 20 to 30% of the population . These figures come from a survey conducted by Opinionway for the Nouvel Observateur and Europe 1 . 67% of workers say they wake up in the middle of the night. And when they stay awake, it’s for an average of 28 minutes. These data prove that the French sleep less and less well.
The majority of sleeping pills are a specific type of medication that induces and maintains sleep. These are hypnotic sedatives. There are also benzodiazepines and barbiturates. Benzodiazepines-like Xanax and Valium-can be addictive and are used to treat anxiety disorders by increasing drowsiness. Barbiturates depress the central nervous system and are used as anesthetics and sedatives.
As with all medications, there is a list of side effects that come with sleeping pills. In addition to the addiction they create, they can also cause the following effects:
Difficulty concentrating and remembering
Parasomnias (Doing things without knowing it … Scary!)
Sleeping pills also slow down your breathing pattern. This means that if you already have lung diseases such as COPD or even asthma, these medications can be dangerous and even deadly.
