7 unusual insomnia cures

MSN Health recently came up with 7 weird tricks to help you fall asleep faster, and we thought we'd share.

As odd as many of these suggestions sound, we've actually covered a few of them before - in those cases we've linked to the blog post alongside the suggestion.

If you're at your wit's end and are desperate for some insomnia help, try:

  • Writing a journal
  • Tidying your bedroom
  • Singing yourself a lullaby
  • Placing a small weight on your body*

*Apparently, if you place a small weight on your body when lying in bed, your body will produce serotonin - a hormone that helps you feel sleepy. Just don't overdo it - this isn't The World's Strongest Man Competition!

    I have a long flat tube filled with (no longer scented) lavender and flaxseed (or some other similarly-weighted filler). I got it because I needed something non-binding to put over my eyes while I lie on my side. A sleep mask with elastic, when I’ve got a migraine already, just makes it worse, and the small ones without elastic fall off, if you like on your side, as I do. The lavender hadn’t the influence that the mere comforting weight draped across my head did for easing me a bit down to sleep–I don’t sleep well at night without it! Sonoma Lavendar calls it a spa heatwrap, because it can be heated or chilled, and draped around your neck, but I (and they) have a different shape for that. It is 24″x9″, comes in a variety of covers, and costs $40. It weighs about 2 lbs. Crafty persons can make their own.
