R-e-l-a-x. Make your goal about relaxation, not sleep. Experiment with slow, deep breathing, relaxing your muscles one by one until you fall asleep.
Set a schedule for going to bed and waking. Make adjustments to your schedule in 15-minute increments over a period of 7 days.
Eat right, exercise, and some sunlight. Go outside and engage with the day. A healthy mind and body equals sound sleep.
Create a relaxing routine. Limit noise. Ensure your bed is cozy. Make your room slightly cooler than usual. Set your intention for a peaceful night’s sleep.
Avoid the following: emotionally charged discussions, large meals, alcohol and caffeine for at least 3 hours before bed. Instead create a relaxing environment. Read inspiring passages or a favorite book, light a candle, listen to calming music, or take a bath.
