Bugzy Malone a famous British rapper has been heard in the news stating he’s a sufferer of insomnia.

Whether it’s caused by excessive drug use, or simply too much caffeine, it’s a very frustrating problem that can plague every area of your life. Some people lie in bed days on end unable to sleep, drained of energy but unable to switch off their brain, others require dangerous medication to force themselves to pass out and get into a deep sleep.

How to fall asleep when you cantPersonally, I wouldn’t want to recommend anything that can be dangerous to my readers, so if you are struggling and want to know how to fall asleep when you can’t keep reading and I’ll go into some short yet effective tips.

My first tip is to take deep breaths when you’re laying in bed. By doing so your heart rate slowly decreases in beating speed and allows your brain to calm down. Once your brain has calmed itself you are able to sleep much easier.

My second tip is to complete any outstanding work or chores that you have leftover. We all know when we have a deadline that is due the next day and it clouds our mind making us unable to think about anything else, well it might stop us from thinking about food or our friends, but it also stops us from being able to sleep. Make sure you handle the work that is due, GET IT DONE!

My next tip would be to wear something comfortable to bed. Having silk pajamas has made my life a ton easier when it comes to nighttime.

Next up make sure your partner is not a snorer, I once had a boyfriend that would snore all night long, it might have been his weight causing it or an illness, but now he’s an ex-boyfriend for a reason.
