If you create a habit that you do every night, you will be signaling your body that it is time for bed. I hate to say it but it is very much like Pavlov’s dog. It is important you create a habit that fit’s your individual style. These are just some suggestions on how you can create a habit for a great night’s sleep.
Listen to soothing music
Write in a journal
Read a relaxing book (you really want to fall asleep quick…read a dictionary! Try it! I promise you’ll be out in no time).
Take a hot bath…more tips like this here.
Close your eyes and go over all the positive things that happened in your life that day
Go over what didn’t go as planned and think of ways to make things smoother if that situation should come up again
Do some yoga moves or light stretches
Meditate or pray
Use these Relaxation Techniques
Practice slow, deep breathing
Day (or should I say “night”) dream – let your mind wander
of tips you can use to get a great night’s sleep.

…whatever it is you decide to do keep it in the same order so your body knows the signals that it’s time for sleep. It’s kinda like when you have kids. Typically, they have the same bedtime routine so they know that sleep time is coming.
Side note: There are medications you can take to help you sleep but I highly recommend trying the above suggestions and leave the medicines as a last resort. **Always consult with your physician before taking any supplements or medications.
So I hope you will be able to get some zzz’s using some of the tips above. Maybe you have some you would like to share? You can share them below in the comment box. Sweet dreams!
