Listening to relaxing music. Reading is also a great way to unwind after a long activity filled day Avoid TV, computers and phones an hour or so before bedtime Don’t wait until bedtime to start thinking about or discussing problems. Deal with anything that is worrying you or causing anxiety early on in the day.
That way you won’t spend time thinking about it as you’re trying to drift asleep Avoid the use of caffeine, sodas, drugs, and alcohol because they can disrupt your sleep patterns Make your last meal of the day light. If your last meal is light, your body will digest it easily. Large meals take much longer to digest and can prevent you from sleeping properly. Nighttime digestion will pull much needed blood away from your brain.
That blood is needed for the brain processing that happens while you sleep Keep your bedroom dark and as quiet as possible.
A quiet dark room is best for sleeping.
