What is your bedtime ritual?
regular sleep routine might help reduce the number of migraines I was experiencing at the time, I was determined to make the change. It helped that my kids were older and more independent, too. My sleep routine starts earlier in the day. I sleep best and wake up fewer times during the night if I finish eating earlier in the evening. I stop eating between 6-7pm to give my body time to digest and prepare to rest for the night. I take magnesium in the evening, as well, to help my body relax and also make sure I get enough of this vital mineral. I keep the lights dim in the evening (this helps prepare the brain for sleep) and move upstairs between 8:30-9pm, as I enjoy spending time resting in bed before falling asleep. My sleep environment is a significant part of my ritual. I use salt lamps in the bedroom to create a warm, cozy glow. I have a small earthing mat in the bed by my feet to help with grounding, and I keep a small fan running to serve as white noise and keep the air circulating and cool. As I get into bed, I apply Pure Haven Foot Therapy Cream, then I place frankincense oil by my heart center and third eye. The last thing I do before turning off my phone is to read my
daily lesson from A Course in Miracles, meditating briefly to set the words and energy in my mind before sleep. I put on a sleep mask, rest my hands on my heart and abdomen, and give myself Reiki and say prayers as I fall asleep. If I wake up at night, I will return to repeating a mantra or prayers, and giving myself Reiki, to help me fall back asleep before my mind starts winding up. Finally, my sleep routine has a bookend – I aim to be asleep by 9:30pm and wake up the same time every day, around 5:30am, even on the weekends. If I have the chance I may stay in bed longer, but I have found that keeping this regular schedule has made a big difference in my overall well-being – and has, in fact, helped reduce my migraines!
