Sleep is essential to life. It lets your body restore itself, improves your concentration and performance during the day, and more. Unfortunately, sleep can be hard to come by, especially when you’re stressed or anxious. If you find it difficult to fall asleep at night or stay asleep, the following tips can help.
Follow a Routine
As much as possible, go to bed at the same time each night. This can be tough when you don’t have a regular job or when you have kids that don’t want to sleep. However, you can still have a bedtime routine that tells your mind and body it’s time to shut down.
You might have to play around with your bedtime routine to find what’s best for you. Some ideas are to try bedtime yoga, take a hot bath, read, and listen to soothing music. Once you find your activities, carry them out every night before bed. Your mind will start to associate those activities with sleep.
Put the Power of Sound to Work
Whether or not you listen to music before bed, many people find that listening to soothing music when you’re in bed can help you get into a deep sleep. If music doesn’t help, there are many soundtracks and videos for ocean waves, rain on tin roofs, and similar sounds that might help.
Use CBD Spray
Using CBD pillow spray can help create a sense of relaxation – specifically due to the lavender. By misting your pillow each night, you should find yourself falling asleep and getting better quality sleep.
