Bedtime routine tips

Trouble sleeping? Here are a few easy tips to incorporate into your bedtime routine.

  • Establish a schedule
    • Going to bed at the same time every night (even on weekends!) helps prevent social jet lag 
  • Avoid screens 1-2 hours before bed
    • Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read! 
  • Try gentle stretching
    • Legs on a wall or lying in savanna can be soothing
  • Take an epsom salt bath 
    • The magnesium helps calm before snoozing!
  • Keep a journal on the bedside table
    • This way you can write down all those lingering thoughts and then promptly shut them off as you close the journal.
  • Eat a meal with protein and healthy fats for dinner
    • Or a snack before bed to prevent feeling hungry when you’re trying to sleep.
  • Avoid exercise right before bed 
  • Avoid caffeine in the afternoon
  • Avoid alcohol before bed
