What is your bedtime ritual?
The most crucial part of my bedtime routine is committing to getting 7 1/2 to 8 hours of sleep. So I really like to already be relaxing in my bed at about 9:30 PM. There’s several ways that I relax and wind down from the day. The first thing I do is to make sure my kids are comfortable and settled. Once I’m resting in my bed.
Let me back up a bit. I wanted to name a few things that disrupt my sleep are worries about family, clients or the world and pain in my physical body.
So part of my bedtime routine is finding a way to relax with my body and mind. Sometimes I read inspirational things, sometimes I pray (more), and sometimes I meditate.
One course correction that I’ve been making with my sleep is to try not to go on my phone about an hour before bed. Obviously with this strange and extraordinary time that were in with the coronavirus that’s been a little bit leaky for me. But after taking the time to write this I realize the importance of that soul guidance is to really commit to putting my phone down by 9 PM, so that I can fall asleep by 10pm or 10:30pm.
I will also add that I get up during the week at 6 AM and on the weekends at 7 AM to pray meditate and stretch my body.
What do you do during the day that has the biggest impact (positive or negative) on your sleep?
A few positive things that I do during the day that have the biggest impact on my sleep is to drink a lot of water, do my daily morning spiritual practice which includes yoga and meditation and to the best of my ability eat foods that don’t cause inflammation in my body.
I would say the most negative thing I do that impacts my sleep is consume too much sugar or caffeine. As a sensitive light warrior I have to be very mindful of what I put in my body during the day. This is a work in progress.
If you have had a particularly challenging day and your normal bedtime routine isn’t enough for you to fall asleep, what do you try next?
If I had a really difficult day and I’m having trouble falling asleep or I know that I’m wired before I lay down I will use a few drops of valerian root tincture in water to calm my nerves. And if I simply cannot fall asleep in bed I will get up and do a restorative yoga pose like legs up the wall and focus on my breathing and send prayers and love to my family and anybody I’m worried about.
Bed time consistent is key for me to feel calm before bedtime and to get restful and nourishing sleep
