If you are having trouble falling asleep, it may be time to start looking for help outside the box. One weird trick that could help you fall asleep is attempting to stay awake. It may sound counterintuitive, but it could help you worry less about falling asleep. Another trick is drinking banana tea.
Bananas contain plenty of magnesium, which helps promote relaxation within the body. One other odd trick is cuddling with a weighted blanket. Similar to babies and swaddling, studies show a chain-weighted blanket may help people go to sleep due to the feelings of comfort and security provided.
