In order to think and function better, and to boost your immune systems to fend off colds and the flu, you need to sleep. Eight hours of sleep each night is what you need and you will be surprised at the big difference it can make. If you can't sleep, below, I am going to give you 10 ways to cure insomnia.

10 Limit Food, Liquids and Caffeine before Bed

Limit Food, Liquids and Caffeine before Bed I recommend you limiting any food, caffeine or liquids at least two hours before you go to bed. Before your body completely relaxes, it will need to start resting. This is definitely an easy way to go about curing insomnia.

8 Exercise Regularly

Exercise Regularly Is it just me or does it seem as if exercise cures everything? Exercise regularly, but make sure you do not do it too close to your bedtime. Your health affects the quality of your sleep. Some exercises that work great include walking, running, fencing or even yoga. It is important to get oxygen and move the body around. This will definitely help you cure insomnia.

7 Write down Your Worries

Write down Your Worries Are you having problems sleeping at night? I like to keep a pad of paper by my bed and write by thoughts and worries down. By doing this, I will no longer have to think about them in bed. This will give me lots of time to deal with them tomorrow when I wake up. How does this sound?
