SELF-CARE SECRET #7

CREATE A NIGHTLY BEDTIME RITUAL.

A nightly bedtime ritual can help you turn off your brain and get your body ready for sleep.  If you're prone to insomnia, be sure to leave your computer, tablet or smart phone outside of the bedroom.  Your bedroom should be a peaceful sanctuary that promotes rest.

Before going to bed, take some time to transition out of your day and into a restful state.  Perhaps you can read a little, meditate, or, my personal favorite, write in your gratitude journal.  I keep a journal in my nightstand and each night I spend 5-10 minutes thinking about my day and writing everything that I'm thankful for - even if some nights the only thing I can come up with is gratitude for a warm bed.

Practicing gratitude creates a peaceful state of mind and aids in falling, and staying, asleep.

Treat Yourself Well.
