Enjoy a restful slumber that has you wake up feeling restored and ready for the day!
When the body is at rest, that’s when healing occurs. All the damage that you and your environment do to your physical self is reversed while you’re sleeping. That’s why the quality of the sleep you get is far more important than the number of hours you stay in bed. If sleep eludes you, it’s time to retrain your brain with a simple evening routine.
You don’t need to spend valuable hours staring at your ceiling. You can train yourself to sleep better. It’s all a matter of eliminating distractions and creating an environment that you feel comfortable in.
Fall asleep quickly and sleep throughout the night without interruption by doing the following things:
- Start getting ready for bed an hour before you’re ready to sleep. Shut down your laptop, drink a cup of hot tea, take a warm bath, and get into your pajamas.
- Keep the temperature in your room comfortable. If your core body temperature rises or lowers, you’ll have trouble sleeping.
- Use blackout curtains and blinds to keep light from streaming in and interrupting your slumber. A comfortable dark environment helps your eyes prepare to close.
- Apply a Lavender Aromatherapy Inhalation Patch to your skin and breathe in the relaxing scent. The familiar smell of childhood provides great comfort for up to eight hours per patch.
- Put your phone on airplane mode and banish all electronics from the room. The light that is emitted from devices can interrupt sleep and cause unnecessary disruptions.
- Use a sound machine to drown out unwanted noise. Choose a track that makes you feel comfortable having it on.
Rest can be restorative. It’s essential for good physical and mental health which is why you should create a nighttime self-care routine that is relaxing. You’ll send signals to the brain that it’s time to retire for the evening and pursue whatever it is that you were mulling over or working on the next day.
