A nightly bedtime routine isn’t just for sleep-allergic children, having night time rituals are also just as important in adulthood.
During these uncertain times, establishing a routine will help you feel more put together and probably help you get a better sleep.
Creating a bedtime routine is one of the best things you can do for yourself, especially after busy or draining days. This gives you time to wind down and focus on yourself.
Some things you can incorporate into your night time routine are as follows:
Set an alarm to signal it’s time to prepare for bed
This will help you stay organised and manage your time. Also, doing this at the same time every night will stop you from sitting up too late on your phone etc.
Eat a light and healthy snack
Eating anything heavy before bed will cause you to have a less desirable sleep. Healthy foods such as oatmeal, yogurt and nuts will not negatively effect your sleep and are healthier for you.
Create a playlist
Psychologists have provided study results that show listening to music before bed can actually encourage sleep and improve sleep quality. This can also help to reduce stress before bed.
Cleanse yourself of the day
Taking a short shower or bath 2 hours before heading to bed cools the body’s temperature and improves sleep quality.
Turn off your screens
Turning off all your screens at least 30-45 minutes before you sleep will massively improve sleep quality. The blue light from phone’s, TV’S, laptop’s and tablet’s activate the body’s internal clock and keep you awake. Turning them off is a good habit to get into.
