We know life sometimes keeps you up, and many people struggle to fall asleep at night. In fact, 60 percent of households suffer from occasional sleeplessness. It can be hard to find a worry-free method that works. But, there are several ways to help you fall asleep naturally! Learn how to sleep better with these tips to fall asleep naturally from ZzzQuil™ PURE Zzzs™.*
Sleep meditation can help.
Meditation is a relaxation technique many people use to ease and clear their minds, but it can also help you sleep better. Harvard Medical School reports that incorporating sleep meditation into your bedtime routine can improve your sleep and give you more energy the next day. Try setting aside some time before bed to focus and calm your mind. You can do this alone or with a partner. For extra help, you can find guided sleep meditation videos on YouTube that will walk you through the process.
Melatonin supplements work with your body.
Your body naturally produces melatonin, a neurohormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. Melatonin supplements work with the body’s natural mechanisms to regulate the internal clock, so you can wake up the next day without feeling groggy. There are several options to try, but we recommend ZzzQuil™ PURE Zzzs™ melatonin gummies. They are designed with the optimal level of melatonin to support your body’s natural sleep cycle, so you fall asleep naturally.* Plus, it includes a unique botanical blend of lavender, chamomile, valerian root and lemon balm.

Try aromatherapy for relaxation.
Aromatherapy is used all around the world for various purposes. It can often be found in use during a massage, at yoga studios, or at home to create a calming atmosphere. You can also use aromatherapy to support your bedtime routine. If you choose this method, make sure to find products made with botanicals that promote sleep. Vicks® PURE Zzzs™ Soothing Aromatherapy contains calming and relaxing lavender and chamomile scents. And it moisturizes your skin, too! Simply apply the soothing, nonmedicated balm to your chest, neck or back before bed, and let the aromatic scent ease your night.
Cut out that extra cup of coffee.
Sleeplessness is one of the many side effects of caffeine. You’ve probably experienced it after consuming too many caffeinated drinks. If you have a hard time sleeping, it might be time to cut back. Try reducing your caffeine intake or swapping out high-caffeine beverages, like coffee, with a lower-dose drink, like green tea. Don’t want to give up that second cup of joe? Try to limit your caffeine intake to the morning hours – so your body has time to work it out of your system throughout the day – or opt for decaf.
Maintain good sleep hygiene.
Good sleep hygiene means practicing good sleep and bedtime habits. A well-developed sleep hygiene routine can help train your body to go to sleep when you want to. This can look different for everyone, but some of the most common practices include setting and keeping to a strict bedtime, creating a relaxing sleep environment, getting a consistent number of hours of sleep every night, and limiting “screen time” before bed. Test out a few different methods, including the tips mentioned in this article, to find what works best for your life.
