When you're thinking and worrying about too many things, it can be hard to fall asleep. There many things you can try-meditation, weighted blankets, and even listening to a relaxing playlist, but if those aren't working as expected, you can try to embrace the halamom life! Consider placing plants in your bedroom that will help you breathe better and your mind and body relax. (If you're already a plantita, here's a solid excuse for you to adopt more botanical babies, LOL!)

Plants to Help You Sleep Better

1. Lavender

Lavender essential oil is a popular relaxing agent people use to fall asleep faster so why not get the plant itself? A study has shown that the scent helps reduce crying in infants and helped enhance their sleep quality. If you can't get a hold of the actual plant, try placing dried lavender buds and leaves under your pillow to take advantage of its aromatherapy properties.

5. Areca Palm

Aside from its tropical aesthetic, the areca palm acts as a natural humidifier and air-purifier to help you breathe better. It's great for those who suffer from sinus and nasal problems at night.

6. Aloe Vera

Just like the snake plant, aloe vera releases oxygen at night. It also improves air quality-it lowers benzene, a chemical found in commercial cleaners. (Tip: Find out if it's time to water it by gently squeezing a leaf. If it's firm, skip the H2O, if it's a bit bendy, it needs agua.)
