Start by creating a comfortable, dark room just for sleeping. That means you don’t want to be using your bedroom as an office, to watch TV or anything else! By training your brain associate your bedroom as a space (only) for rest, it will be much easier to relax.

Next, try adding soothing scents, a little reading, your favorite music, or baths to your evening routine. Certain smells, like eucalyptus, can help ready the brain for rest. Try adding your favorite Young Living essential oil to a warm bath, or for a little aromatherapy in the evening.

Any calming pre-bedtime ritual – that doesn’t involve looking at the light from a television or computer screen – in the last hour of your day will also help get you in the mood for sleep.

Also get into the habit of practicing meditation, or a gentle yoga routine. Learning to focus, breathe and relax habitually throughout the day will help you later at night when you need to release tension – a natural first step to falling off to sleep.
