Sleep is a beautiful thing, but sometimes it can be really hard to get some shut-eye after a long, stressful day. Tossing and turning is no fun, and no one wants to deal with insomnia. Lucky for you, we have compiled some easy hacks that will take the stress out of hitting your pillow every night.
Count your breathing
As one of the simplest meditation practices, this method is tried and true for getting you to bed faster. All you need to do is inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, and really focus on your breath. Not only will this calm you, this repetitive exercise will really prepare your brain for slumber.
Spray a fresh scent
The National Sleep Foundation reports that more than three-fourths of people explained that they are more excited to go to bed when their sheets have a fresh scent. Not only this, but a full 75% of people say that they get a more comfortable night’s sleep on sheets with a fresh scent, so spray a linen freshener liberally before you get under the covers. Combine this with your deep breathing, and you’ll be asleep in no time.
Set a formal bedtime
Having a schedule every night may seem hard to stick to, but within a few weeks of practice, you will have trained your body to prepare for sleep a few hours before you even get in your pajamas. But, you do have to keep this routine going for the weekends, so your internal body clock doesn’t get messed up if you decide to sleep in.
