Relaxation Techniques before Going to Sleep:
- When in bed, loosen the muscles by lying on your back. Stay on your back and aim loosely on the mattress until you roll in your desired position.
- Think of calming things
- Think of black
- Acknowledge distractions
- Try counting backwards
- Don't forget to spray on the pillow sheets with mist such as the Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Sleep Pillow Mist to help you sleep better. The lavender and chamomile essential oils has a lulling effect to enhance sleep.
- Again, feel your mind, body, and soul relax as you fall asleep.
- Spraying a light mist over the pillow or sheets benefits an authentic, aromatherapy experience.
Fill your mind with something calming to fall asleep faster.
Black is also a calming color. Close your eyes and think of the black color.
Distractions cannot be avoided so learn how to acknowledge it, such as, "I hear my partner snoring but I can still sleep."
Stretch relieves tension. The looser the muscles become, the more it becomes relaxing.
Along loosening the muscles, try visualizing yourself with thoughts and resolving them. This will relax your heart and makes you fall asleep.
Count from 99 and backwards to keep you relaxed and focused on one thing. You won't notice you're falling asleep.
