My bedtime routine and other bedtime tips. ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

Struggle to switch off or go to sleep? I know I do especially with my scatter brain and insomnia.

For me a bedtime routine is essential, here is my bedtime routine plus other bedtime tips to help you sleep.

Some other tips to help during bedtime:

๐Ÿ›Œ Get at least 8 hours of sleep a night.

๐Ÿ›Œ If you have missed sleep, the to make it up during the week by a lie in or nap.

๐Ÿ›Œ Stretch as soon as you wake up.

๐Ÿ›Œ Drink a glass of water as soon as you get up.

๐Ÿ›Œ Try to keep your bed purely for relaxing and sleeping.

๐Ÿ›Œ Keep your room cosy, warm and smelling lovely.

๐Ÿ›ŒTry natural light such as candles or a Himalayan salt lamp which actually promotes good sleep and purifies the air.

๐Ÿ›Œ Try extra blankets, weigh yourself down with lots of blankets this makes you feel secure and relaxed. They actually make weighted anxiety blankets now- I want one.

๐Ÿ›Œ Wash your bed sheets weekly.

๐Ÿ›ŒAccording to Feng shui your bed should be far away from your door as possible to avoid disturbances should as noise and light.

๐Ÿ›Œ You should also avoid clutter, going to bed and seeing clutter around you can make you feel uncomfortable it doesn’t create a calming environment.

๐Ÿ›ŒYour bedroom colour should also be calming and nurturing- my rooms a pale green.

๐Ÿ›Œ Chose a gorgeous laundry detergent you love the smell of or spray your bed with pillow mist or essential oils.

๐Ÿ›Œ Read a book to naturally make you fall asleep.

๐Ÿ›ŒJournaling before bed or writing your thoughts down.

๐Ÿ›ŒUsing a gratitude journal.

๐Ÿ›Œ Sleep meditations or sleep stories.

๐Ÿ›Œ Don’t eat late in the evening.

Hope this helps.
