Are you having trouble sleeping? If Yes then ask yourself following questions:
1) Were you racing around all day and haven’t had a moment of down time?
Your mind needs time to process the day and relax before you hit the hay. Try building in 1 hour of down time before you go to sleep with no technology. Develop a ritual for yourself that you enjoy. Straighten up or lay out things for the next day, spend time with loved ones and read a book.
2) Did you have caffeine or an energy drink in the afternoon?
If you are reading this late night, then drink water to flush your body and have something that makes you sleepy. For some this is bread or diary. Chicken, which has tryptophan, can also make you sleepy. In the future, try not having energy drinks or caffeine after 11 am.
3) Are you stressed about all you have to do tomorrow?
Keep a pad of paper by your bed and write out a list of everything that needs to be done. Keep it in order of importance and plan it out over the week. This will set your mind at ease so you can sleep.
4) Anxiety problem?
If you are feeling anxiety then write a gratitude note. Write out 5 things you are grateful for each night, before you turn out the light. Bonus: this may also give you great dreams!
5) Are you so excited about your life that you can’t sleep?
Do something grounding and a bit boring. Do your finances, organize something, or read a book. That should do it.
