BED TIME ROUTINE TIPS
ESTABLISH A ROUTINE
Going to bed at the same time every night (even on weekends!) helps prevent social jet lag.
AVOID SCREENS BEFORE BED
The blue light disrupts melatonin release. Instead, pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read!
TRY GENTLE STRETCHING
Legs on a wall or lying in savasana can be soothing and relaxing.
TAKE AN EPSOM SALT BATH
The magnesium helps calm before snoozing!
KEEP A BEDSIDE JOURNAL
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 BEFORE BED
This may keep you up while you're trying to unwind.
Caffeine in the afternoon may keep you up at night. Limit to the morning only.
This can disrupt sleep patterns.
