CHOOSE CONSISTENT SLEEP & WAKEUP TIMES
Going to bed and getting up at the same time each day can help you prepare your body for sleep! It also helps your body get into a routine, which will make it easier to implement a before bedtime calm down routine!
TURN OFF YOUR PHONE 15 MINS BEFORE BED
The lights emitted from your phone can actually disturb your sleep patterns. Accordingly ditching your phone 30 mins before bed would help most with your sleeping routine. If that’s difficult, you can adjust the settings on your phone! On the iPhone, you can shift your phone light into ‘night mode’.
AVOID NAPPING DURING THE DAY
Both the length of your nap and the timing of your nap can hinder your sleep patterns come nightfall! Ideally, if you need a nap, do so before 3 pm and aim to keep it under 20 minutes!
TAKE A WARM SHOWER
There is nothing more relaxing than taking a warm shower! Wash off the stress of the day by slipping into a warm shower! There’s no better feeling than going to bed clean and fresh!
Meditating is an excellent way to bring yourself into focus and into the present time. It can also be used as a calming and grounding tool. Try doing meditation it will help.
