  • Wind Down. Gradually decrease your activity level in the 30 to 60 minutes prior to bedtime.

  • Wind down naturally. Particularly if you have any usual trouble getting to sleep as I do, you might need to approach sleep as an activity that you “prepare” for, rather than something you throw yourself into – which is common for schedules that zap your energy and leave you zombie-like exhausted at the end of the day. Preparing for rest tells you brain that you are ready to turn the dial down and enter renewal mode – when it gives the order to your entire body that cells should perform maintenance and make any needed upgrades and repairs that you require naturally.’

  • Unpluor power-off social connections except for emergency resources. If you can’t spend two nightly minutes without sending or reading a text message for example, you might have phone-somnia. Even the light from an LED display can interfere with restful sleep. Reduce your urge to get connected during the hours when you have an opportunity to deposit rest to your time bank.

10:00 PM

  • Make a concerted effort to get to bed at the same time each night. Developing a healthy sleep routine helps send the “wind down” message to your brain. Eventually, you should feel “sleepy” at the time that you would normally go to sleep. This is a natural sleep aid that can be as effective as some over-the-counter sleep aids (always consult your doctor concerning sleep aids).
