We all have those restless nights, where we toss and turn staring at the ceiling until we finally give in and get up. The more we worry about sleeping, the more our mind races, and then the next thing you know the sun is peeking through your window.
I have spent way too many nights this way until I decided that it was time to end the pattern. I don’t like taking pills so that possibility was a no-no, so what else does it leave? There are plenty of natural sleep remedies online, and believe me, I tried plenty. But out of all the remedies that I tried, this by far was the best.
The ingredients are easily obtainable, and you can whip this together in no time at all. The best part is the flavor! Sleep has never tasted so good, let’s get started.
- 1 Organic Banana
- 1 Cup of Water
- Dash of Organic Cinnamon
Cut off both ends of the banana and place it, peel and all, into the boiling water. Boil for 10-15(Most recipes call for 5 minutes but I find 10-15 works best for me) minutes, and then using a colander, strain the mixture into a cup. Sprinkle with the cinnamon, and drink it one hour before you plan on going to bed.
I like to eat the warm gooey banana, sprinkled with cinnamon alongside my tea. I find that it helps the whole process along, and makes for a delicious dessert!
