Trouble sleeping? Try this warm milk recipe tonight.

Blend a teaspoon of cream-style honey into a cup of very warm milk. Add a drop of real vanilla extract. And that’s it. Your warm milk recipe is complete!

How can these ingredients help you fall asleep?

When warmed, milk releases an amino acid called L-tryptophan, which relaxes you and may help you to sleep.

Honey is a valuable food that can make a positive contribution to our overall health. It’s been known to soothe sore tummies, throats, and troubled minds for centuries.

The scent of vanilla is regularly used in essential oils to calm, relax and encourage sleep.

Your Environment Matters

Once you’ve made your warm milk, find a quiet part of the house where you can have a moment to yourself. Dim the lights. Turn off all the sounds and screens.

Sit.

Close your eyes.

Breathe deeply and slowly sip your drink.

Savour it.

Instead of thinking about your sleep troubles, enjoy the moment. Then head off to bed and drift to the Land of Nod.
