1. Dim the lights.
Just like you set the mood for a romantic evening. You need to set the mood for a good night's sleep.
Leave on the least amount of lights that you can. I tend to leave on the Himalayan lamp that I have and turn out the rest of the lights.
2. Wear blue light blocking glasses
Blue light stops the production of melatonin, which is known as the sleep hormone, Unfortunately you probably have LED lights in your home. If you do, they give off blue light. Wearing blue light blocking glasses will block that spectrum of light.
3. Don't drink a lot of water before bed.
If you drink a lot of water before bed, you will have to get up out of your bed to go to the bathroom and this will disrupt your sleep.
4. Don't eat 3 hours before bed.
If you do eat close to bedtime, your body will still be digesting that food when you go to bed and focusing on preparing you to sleep.
5. Use essential oils to help you to relax into sleep.
Trying diffusing lavender, Serenity, Balance or Peace if you have a diffuser.
If you don't have a diffuser, apply this oils topically to the back of your neck and your chest. 2 drops of essential oil or to 6 drops of a carrier oil
6. Turn off the electronics at least an hour before bed.
Just like the LED lights, electronics emit blue light unless you have an app that blocks it.
