6. Drink Up

Drinking a soothing cup of herbal tea or warm water an hour or two before bed can help you wind down and relax before hitting the sack. Going to bed relaxed is the best way to prevent segmented sleep.

7. Massage Your Feet

Massaging your feet with relaxing essential oils is a great way to reduce tension in the muscles all over your body.

Massaging also helps you mentally prepare for bed, preventing your thoughts for keeping you awake.

8. Use Acupressure

Acupressure and reflexology allow you to target specific pressure points in your feet to relieve stress and promote sleep. It even works on babies.

Make sure to stimulate this specific point as you massage your feet.

9. Read

Reading a good book is one of the many ways you can change your thoughts from work and every life to relaxation and slumber.

Just make sure not to read something too exciting or you’ll be tempted to stay awake and finish the book.

If you still find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, lull yourself back to sleep by listening to some soothing music, massaging your feet again, trying breathing exercises, or reading a bit more.

By following the tips above, your segmented sleeping pattern will eventually work itself out and you’ll graduate to uninterrupted 7-9 hours of sleep.
