Give yourself your best chance for a good night’s sleep! Good sleep habits can include a consistent sleep schedule, a quiet and inviting place to sleep, and calming activities for the hour before bedtime.

The last hour before bedtime is key!  How about a cup of soothing herbal tea and a good book?  Everyone is different, and each of us needs to find the habits and practices that work for us.  The main idea is to develop pre-bedtime habits that help you relax and calm down.  In the modern world, with all the pressures we face, the 24-hour news cycle, and all the other distractions make it easy to be wired up all day – And that can affect your sleep also.  Make time for yourself and let yourself unwind before getting in bed.

When your in bed, if you can’t sleep, your bed can feel like a torture device.  If you’re not sleeping and don’t think you have the chance to fall asleep, it may be a good idea to get out of bed and sit up for a while.  It’s another chance to relax yourself. Sometimes we have such a hard time sleeping that we begin to associate the bed with the inability to sleep.  Getting out of bed and sitting up for a while can help break that association, so that the bed becomes a signal of going to sleep.
