4 Ways to Reduce Bedtime Stress
Falling asleep can be difficult when you’re stressed. Try these tips to help make your bedtime more peaceful and relaxing. Do something physical. Dance around your living room, take a short walk on your treadmill, or run in place for a minute or so. You will release some of your pent up tension and help to begin the relaxation process for your mind. Enjoy a warm drink. Herbal tea or warm milk will temporarily increase your body temperature and calm your nervous system. Massage your aching body parts. You can easily give yourself a foot or scalp massage. This will cause your tensed up parts to release, allowing your whole body to feel more relaxed. Take a warm bath. Use your soaking time to relax your mind as well.
