Preparing for Bed

  1. Taking a hot bath, shower or sauna before bed can facilitate good sleep. When you get out of the bath, the change in body temperature triggers a signal to your brain that it's time for bed.
  2. As feet have the poorest blood circulation in the body, they tend to get colder than the rest of the body at night. Thus, opt to wear socks to bed or keep a hot water bottle near your feet at bedtime, so that you find a peaceful slumber comfortably.
  3. As mentioned earlier, block out even the tiniest glow before going to bed. It is very important to sleep in an environ that is closer to complete darkness, especially if you live in an urban area or your spouse has a different routine than you do.
  4. Say good bye to your work at least one hour before you go to bed. This will provide your brain an opportunity to feel relaxed and calm. You can have a good night's sleep without feeling anxious about the next day's deadlines.
  5. Avoid watching TV before you go to bed. Bright light coming out of your TV/computer screen is too much stimulating to the brain/ preventing you from falling asleep instantly.
  6. If possible listen to soothing music or sounds of nature like the soaring ocean, chirping of birds in the forest and so on before going to bed. These sounds are extremely relaxing and conducive to sleep.
  7. In a nutshell, don't go for anything stimulating before bed. Even a mystery or suspense novel can be highly alerting if you are seeking a sound sleep. You might be tempted to keep reading for hours, instead of going to sleep.
