Don’t you just hate when you’ve got a big match in the morning, but you can’t get to sleep tonight? You’re just tossing and turning, unable to relax or get comfortable, with non-stop “noise” taking over your mind.
And then it hits you… you’ve got insomnia.
There are so many things you can do AHEAD of time to prevent insomnia, but what can you do when it’s actually happening?
Well, if you have nothing going on the following day, you could just soldier through it and go to bed early the next night. Or, you could stay awake a while longer to brew and drink some chamomile or valerian tea which will help make you tired. Or you could stay up and unwind in a hot bath to relax your muscles. Or, you could pop a sleeping pill, though I would opt for all-natural melatonin over a prescription like Ambien, which has been proven to be addictive.
But if you’re looking for the best, most delicious way to encourage your body to drift off to the land of nod without any potential side-effects (other than a smile on your face,) you could have an orgasm.
You heard me right… having an orgasm might be THE one true solution to having blissful, uninterrupted sleep! And it’s WAY better than Ambien!
Here’s how it works:
When you have an orgasm your body releases endorphins, which are natural chemicals known for not only making you feel intensely good, but also for making you feel super sleepy. And that’s just part of the chemical cocktail your body cooks up when you have an orgasm. During orgasm, your body also produces oxytocin, a.k.a. the “love hormone”, along with vasopressin, a chemical that counteracts the effects of cortisol, the stress chemical. Add serotonin and norepinephrine to the mix, that will help you get and stay in REM sleep and you’ve got everything you need to help you relax into a deep sleep.
Less stress = relaxation = lowered heart rate = sleepy time for you, you cunning orgasmic creature, you!
So forget the late night tea parties and baths, and the meds and supplements. If you want to get a great night’s sleep and beat the bummer of insomnia, go for the big “O.” You’ll be putting less foreign chemicals into your body, and it will be a hell of a lot more fun! And you’ll be well-rested for that morning match!
How ’bout you? What do you do when insomnia strikes?
