All about Bedtime Tricks

Room

Make sure your room is the place where you feel most relaxed; mind the colors around you, if it is a cluttered room you will be thinking all the time that it needs to be cleaned, and instead of helping you relax, this will add to your stress level. Pastel colors are soothing and they are usually the recommended colors, but if you absolutely hate them, then use a color that reminds you about peaceful places. Some people just can’t sleep if a minimum amount of light is in the room, so if you are one of these people try to fix this before going to bed.

Food and exercise

Eating something is soothing for some people, but eating too much, especially food that is too hard to digest like pizza, pasta, hamburgers, etc., is going to make it hard for you to have a good night’s sleep. If you have to eat something, try some fruit or yogurt, maybe a glass of warm milk and a piece of toast with organic jam (just the sugar from the fruit). Also try avoiding drinking too much water before your bedtime. Exercise is great, it liberates endorphins and keeps your stress manageable, but doing it too late will also give you a hard time falling asleep. Try avoiding exercise at least 4 hours before your bedtime.

Bedtime basics

Try doing things that soothe you, rather than things that wake you up: avoid the use of cell phones, laptops and televisions as much as you can before or while trying to sleep. Many of these items have proved to excite your mind and make it harder to fall asleep. Clothing is very important too; clothing too tight or too loose can be uncomfortable and will make you pull it up and down every few minutes. Choose to wear clothing that works for the season; some people feel good just wearing an old t-shirt or shorts to bed, while some of us love wearing cozy and snuggly adult onesie pajamas. Whatever you choose, it is all about you feeling comfortable and sleeping well.
