Water can help with insomnia

If you do not have enough water in your body, it can cause your heart to beat faster and harder. This is one effect of dehydration and it will keep you awake.  First, follow all the rules above, especially the ones about caffeine during the day, give it up. Then, in the evening at least 3 hours before you go to bed, try drinking one or two tall glasses of water. You may also try keeping a glass of water by your bedside and sipping on it if you wake up and can’t go back to sleep. Of course, if you drink too much or too late, you will be up visiting the restroom all night, that isn’t good either so vary how much you can drink at what time to solve this problem. Try this simple solution and let me know your results. You may be pleasantly surprised with a good nights sleep.
