Your mind and body need sleep, and sleep thrives on a regular routine. Get into a routine to prepare for a good night's sleep. Minimise sleep disrupters:
- don't drink caffeine in the evenings
- watch your alcohol - drinking to get off to sleep has a rebound effect and you will wake earlier
- turn off blue-light media at least an hour before bedtime
If you can't get to sleep after about 30 minutes, get up and read or do something boring for a while (no computers though!)
Keep your bedroom cool and relaxing. That way your brain will associate your bedroom with relaxation and sleep.
PRACTISE BREATHING, MINDFULNESS OR MEDITATION TECHNIQUES.
