Have you ever had a really good night of sleep, waking up feeling rested and refreshed? It’s a wonderful feeling. You feel happy, energetic, and the world is a bright and wonderful place.
On the other hand, when you suffer from insomnia and have a hard time falling asleep, or have a restless night filled with disturbing dreams, you wake up feeling tried, groggy, and have a hard time facing the day.
Insomnia runs in my family. My mother and several of my aunts have suffered from severe insomnia all their lives, and they can’t go anywhere without their sleeping pills. It’s painful, even to watch.
So one of our family missions has been to help mom get a better night’s sleep. When she sleeps better, she’s in a better mood. And when she’s in a good mood, we’re all in a good mood. I’m sure you can relate to what I’m saying.
Today I want to share with you five simple recipes for a better sleep, which are highly recommended by Chinese medical practitioners.

Thank you for your input Tina. It's interesting that the journal also recommended wheat bread, broccoli and black beans. I always love them and know that they're good for you, but didn't know they'd help your sleep as well. Interesting!March 27, 2012 - 2:31pm
Thanks for sharing recipes that can help ease insomnia. I never would've guessed celery could be used as a sleep aid. The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association also gave a thumbs up to using celery before bed as well as hard-boiled eggs and popcorn. The Journal also recommended wheat bread, broccoli and black beans as these feeds are rich in magnesium. Appreciate your suggestions cycleharmony.March 20, 2012 - 4:16pm
