What happens when you wake up in the morning?
Do you open your eye and you’re immediately ready to jump straight into your day?
I’m guessing that the answer is no…
You likely have a few things that you do fairly routinely in the morning to help you wake up and ease into your day.
Just like how you can’t go from 0 to 100 first thing in the morning, you can’t do the reverse and go from 100 to 0 last thing at night either.
Your body and mind need time to wind down and de-stress, making a slow transition from being super busy and alert to being more calm and relaxed.
A sleep ritual is key.
There are many different obstacles that might get in the way of you getting a good night’s sleep, but the biggest one within your control is whether or not you have a good sleep ritual or bedtime routine.
To get better sleep, you often need to build better sleep habits that help with this transition and improve your chances of getting a great night’s sleep.
A sleep ritual is a set of behaviours that help to facilitate good sleep. It tells your brain that it’s time to calm down, focus less on your to-do list, and focus more on falling asleep.
Another benefit of a sleep ritual is that it will put you in control of your evenings, helping to protect you from sleep disruptors that may decrease your chance of sleeping restfully.
