Here’s some other tips to help you relax and sleep during the night:

Tip 1: Exercise during the day will help you to be physically tired at night.

Tip 2: Drink a calming tea like chamomile or valerian can help start the process of relaxing you before bed time.

Tip 3: Do breathing exercises to clear your mind and relax your body.

Tip 4: Ask your partner or friend to give you a massage to help remove stress and tension.

Tip 5: Read a calming book.

Tip 6: Write down your stresses or worries in your journal.

Tip 7: Maintain a consistent sleep schedule.

Tip 8: Take a warm bath or shower which will relax and heat up your body.

Tip 9: Turn off electronic devices, such as computers, laptops, the television, and cellphones.

Tip 10: Limit how much you drink and eat before bed time.

If these tips do not help you relax and sleep better, you may need to discuss this issue with your doctor, try therapy with a licensed therapist or try short-term over the counter medications. Remember, sleep deprivation can lower your immune system, and make you more prone to depression and anxiety.
