This is going to be a little more in depth than it sounds. – Wait. So going home, flopping on the couch, watching 4 hours of Netflix, eating dinner and falling asleep on the couch is a routine, right? Sure. But this is actually the opposite kind of routine that will be beneficial. A good bedtime routine is a series of events that help wind you down. For example- after eating and cleaning up after dinner, relax on the couch, maybe watch an episode of a show (yes, just one!) after that, wash your face, brush your teeth, stretch and head to bed at the same time every night. The consistency of the same activities will give your body a heads up that, “Hey, it’s almost time to sleep!”. Keep in mind, a routine has to be a consistent thing. Don’t expect a change over night, but eventually it will work!!
