How to Wind Down Before Bedtime

It’s not always easy to wind down for bedtime, but these are some helpful ways to get ready for the big sleep:

1. Do something physical for a few minutes. Dance around your living room, take a short walk on your treadmill, or run in place for a minute or so. You will release some of your pent up tension and help to begin the relaxation process for your mind.

2. Enjoy a warm drink. Herbal tea (without caffeine) or warm milk will temporarily increase your body temperature and calm your nervous system. It is also a way to slow down your mental energy.

3. Massage your aching body parts. You can very easily give yourself a foot or scalp massage. This will cause your tensed up parts to release, allowing your whole body to feel more relaxed.

4. Take a warm bath. This will calm your entire body. Use your soaking time to relax your mind as well. Once you've spent this time relaxing, you will find that it is easier to fall asleep.
