A cup of tea and book on bed

Better sleep makes us happier and healthier. We know that and we all wish we had more of it. But yet it can be elusive sometimes. The next time you find yourself tossing and turning in bed, try out these 3 natural remedies for better sleep!


Have a cup of jujube tea

Jujube — commonly known as Chinese date — is a fruit packed with nutrients like Vitamin C and Potassium. The antioxidant-rich superfood has been widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 3,000 years to help calm the mind and improve the overall quality of sleep. Both flavonoids and saponins, bioactive compounds founds in Jujube, also relieve anxiety. Now, make yourself a cup of Jujube Tea and get ready to fall into deep slumber.


Take a hot bath

Hopping into your tub for a hot bath 1 - 2 hours before bedtime not only helps you relax mentally, but regulates your body’s temperature, and improves sleep as a result. Add a bath to your night routine with some bubble baths and a good book. If taking a bath is not your thing, taking a hot shower has the same effect too!


Get outside for some sunshine

You would think it’s counter-intuitive, but getting enough sunlight throughout the day aids in better sleep at night. A study has shown that being exposed to bright light helped increased sleep time and resulted in better sleep quality.
