How to Stop Shaking Hands

Hand shaking can hinder your day-to-day life, but there are ways to control it. Hand shaking
may be mild, moderate, or sever. Mild hand tremors are often caused by lifestyle choices can be
reduced through simple lifestyle changes, such as getting more sleep and cutting back on
caffeine or nicotine. If you are suffering from more severe hand tremors, see your doctor to get
a diagnosis and discuss your options, as these are more often a symptom of a medical issue. In
some severe cases, where it's difficult to do things like hold a cup, medication, therapy, or
surgery may help to calm your shaking hands.

1. Get at least 7 hours of sleep a night to prevent tremors. Noticeable hand tremors
are likely to occur if you get too little sleep at night. Sleep helps to regulate your
automatic nervous system, as well as your heartbeat and blood pressure, keeping body
tremors in check. Get to bed early enough to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night,
and remove distractions to ensure that you sleep soundly.[1]
 Set a strict wake-up time for yourself every morning to help regulate your circadian
rhythm and improve your sleep quality. [2]

2. Avoid alcohol, which can worsen hand tremors in the long run. In the short term,
alcohol can reduce your inhibitions and calm your nervous hand tremors. Once the
alcohol wears off, however, your hand shaking is likely to become worse. Consume
alcoholic drinks sparingly, if at all, to keep your tremors to a minimum.[3]
 Using alcohol regularly to calm hand tremors can also lead to alcoholism over time.
 Alcohol will usually only relieve hand tremors for about a half hour before wearing off. [4]

3. Cut back on stimulants like caffeine and nicotine. Avoid drinking tea, coffee, cola,
or other caffeinated drinks if you have recurring hand tremors. Opt for caffeine-free
beverages instead, such as water and herbal tea. Avoid smoking, vaping, and chewing
tobacco, as well, as nicotine can cause similar effects on the body.[5]
 Talk to your doctor about your options for quitting smoking, vaping, or chewing tobacco,
such as using nicotine patches, medication, or hypnosis.
 Energy drinks may also cause tremors and should be avoided.
