We all have those nights when we can’t sleep, staring at the ceiling, unable to get more than a couple of hours of shuteye. I’ve also spent too many nights this way and I needed to put an end to my poor sleeping patterns. I’ve discovered this delicious tea recipe that completely improved my cycle.
Insomnia or irregular sleeping can occur from different things like depression, stress, and anxiety. Almost every night, when I go sleeping, I start thinking about work, family, or other things that I got to do the next day. So if your mind is active you won’t be asleep.
Insomnia can also be caused by certain medications including pain medications, antihistamines and heart and blood pressure medicines. Some medications can make you feel sleepy at first, but they can trigger frequent bathroom trips or anxiety which can further disturb your rest.
If you are addicted to your phone when you should be sleeping or have some of these problems you need some changes.
You can make some sleep remedy like a banana tea and also tastes so good. Bananas, especially the peels are full of magnesium and potassium which work together to relax the muscles. Magnesium is known as one of the best minerals for relaxation. Don’t forget that this recipe requires 100% organic bananas. Those which are not organic are full with harmful pesticides and since we encourage you to eat the boiled peel, it must be chemical-free.
It takes less than 10 minutes to make this tea and you can enjoy it every night before bed.
- 1organic banana
- 1 small pot of water
- A dash of cinnamon (optional)
You need to cut off both ends of the banana, peel, and place in into boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes. Pour the water into a mug by using a colander. You can also sprinkle cinnamon into the tea. Drink this tea one hour before bed time.
