Let’s get creative and turn the room into a cave! Often, this means cold, dim and relaxing. Exposure to light might make it more challenging to fall asleep. It’s good to get a good amount of sunlight during the day. This even helps us sleep harder when it is time to go to sleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime, yes this means the TV too! So set your alarm and stop scrolling Instagram and Facebook. Consider using black out curtains, sleep meditation music or binaural beats for sleep, a fan or other devices to create an environment that is cozy and calm.
Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath with lavender essential oil or using relaxation techniques like a 10 min chakra meditation, will promote better deeper sleep.
