The artificial blue light emitted by electronic screens triggers your body to produce more daytime hormones (like cortisol) and disorient your body's natural preparation for sleep.
2. Avoid heavy meals 3 hours before bed
Your body works super hard to digest your food. Don't make it do that work when it should be shutting down to recover/repair overnight via great sleep.
3. Take a warm shower
A warm shower 1-2 hrs before bedtime may help in relaxation and prepare your body for sleep
4. Drink warm milk
Drinking a glass of warm milk may elicit homely memories of your childhood, which may promote a sense of comfort, warmth and relaxation.
5. Stay in dark and cool room
Turn off all lights and go to sleep. Adjust your room temperature to an optimal 60-68 degree for a perfect night's rest.
