You will have to watch for the food labels if you are trying to take care of insomnia in this way. Fat intake is one of the most important parts of this treatment, so be careful with caffeine, sugar and saturated fat intake. You will feel better if you minimize the consumption of these products, among which caffeine and sugar are the most dangerous and should be reduced significantly. Be moderate in eating, but eat the things you like and drink coffee in the morning only (not before bed or in the evening). We have to repeat that moderation is the key to the success.
Exercises are the second part of the treatment and you will have to do some exercises that keep you heartbeat high for 20 to 30 minutes. Some of the activities that can help in this case are yard work, playing with your kids, tennis, biking, jogging and many others. Try to find some activity that you like to perform, but that is also beneficial for your plan. If you find an activity you do not like, you may be in danger of skipping it and jeopardizing the treatment. So keep this up and you will sleep like a baby. This will also reduce the need for drinking and eating, which will improve sleeping patterns. This is a natural way of eliminating insomnia from your life and you will be healthier in general as well.
