Activities such as taking a hot bath, meditating or stretching, reading a book, or listening to calming music are all great ways to signal your brain that you are relaxed and ready to rest. Also, be sure to take into consideration your bedroom environment. Purchasing darker shades to keep out the light, turning the temperature down to be cooler than usual, and making sure you have a comfortable mattress and pillow that suit your needs are all ways to create a better sleeping environment.
Find a combination of these activities you find works best for getting your mind and body ready for sleep, and create a bedtime ritual out of it. You’ll need to carry out that routine consistently to teach your body that you are moving toward bedtime each time. In turn, you’ll be able to fall asleep faster every night.
