Bedtime Routine

It is so important to get some decent rest, and getting a bedtime routine. Have a think about your current routine. Think about your current routine. From today your challenge is to develop a bedtime routine. Think about what makes you feel calm,relaxed,and peaceful - this may involve reading a book, taking a warm bath, stretching, or meditating. The goal is to have this routine be something you can start now, not in 6 months from now. Over time, as you get a hang of this routine, you can start to make small changes to help you sleep better.

Having a pre-sleep or bedtime routine can help you fall asleep easily and improve the quality of your sleep over time.

For pre-sleep your routine should include:

1. A time to unplug: Choose a time to stop using and put away all electronics at least 30 minutes before bed.

2. A time of preparation for the following day: While it may seem counterintuitive, if you get in the habit of preparing for the following day and night before, you can save time each day. Something as simple as picking out your clothing or packing your lunch can go a long way.

3. A relaxing activity: Dependent on your interests, choose a relaxing activity. If you have a busy evening, perhaps you could sit and breathe deeply for a few minutes, engaging in mindful practice.

4. A bedtime: Aim to go to bed at the same time each day ( even on weekends). This can help get your body in a good groove.
