Is a cup of tea really going to keep you awake instead of helping you finally get to sleep? Actually, sometimes a cup of tea can be just the thing. You just need to avoid drinking caffeinated black or green teas. Instead, look for one of the herbal tea options that has relaxing properties.
People have been falling asleep after a nice cup of chamomile tea for centuries. This herb is known for its ability to relax people and has been used as a natural sedative. To brew this tea, you should heat the water to boiling and then steep it for three minutes. Some people enjoy adding lemon to their tea. This is a great idea, since lemon can help people relax, as well.
Lemon balm tea is also said to provide relief for insomniacs. Simply brew a fresh cup of tea when you are having trouble sleeping or brew a pitcher of iced tea to sip whenever you need to relax.
Don’t be afraid to experiment a bit to create a soothing tea that works for you. You may find that a mix of chamomile and lemon balm creates the perfect tea.
