When you can’t seem to calm yourself down at the end of the day, sleep feels impossible. But what if you had steps to take that led you gently to a state where your body and mind were ready for rest?
Between the anxious thoughts and constant pings on our phone, bedtime for us isn’t the magical time we’ve created for our kids. And when you can’t relax at night, you only feel more exhausted the next day.
Your wind-down routine doesn’t have to be done in complete solitude (or even all at once). You can lighten the approach and create a more relaxing evening while still getting the essential things done.
In this episode, you’ll learn 8 ideas for a wind-down routine that enhances and improves your sleep night after night.
