  1. Wash your face. Remove all the make-up and oils from your face and hydrate your skin with a lightweight moisturizer.
  2. Drink a glass of water. Drinking a glass of water before bed helps cycle toxins out of your body.
  3. No electronics half an hour before bed. Turn off the tv, put down your phone. Create quite time, take away the extra stimulation to your brain.
  4. Light an incense or candle. Calming scents can help us relax. Pick a cozy scent such as Tranquility or Lavender.
  5. Write down your to-do list for tomorrow. Get it off your mind so that when you lay down to sleep the thoughts do not continue to race through. Need some tips on building your to-do list – check out How To Build A Better To-Do List.
  6. Journal or Brain Dump. This has similar effects as writing your to-do list down. It gets all the racing thoughts out of your mind and onto paper. This gives you a chance to process the day so that you can let go of your worries for the night. Write about your grand ideas for the next day, write down your sorrows, whatever is on your mind, let them transfer to your journal.
  7. Read. I always have multiple books started. Fantasy to escape reality, Self-Growth books to strengthen my soul. Currently I’m reading “Altar of Bones” by Philip Carter and “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero.
  8. Yoga. This can be as simple as one pose. Legs up on the Wall is a great one for before bed – Legs Up The Wall Pose
  9. Meditate. Meditating prior to bed helps clear thoughts and worry out of your mind so that you can have a restful sleep. Check out How Meditation Benefits You for why it’s the bomb and some ways I work meditation into each of my days.
  10. Keep calming and healing crystals by your bed. I know this one may be a little too voodoo for some but I find crystal therapy very healing and enlightening. Choose crystals such as amethyst and rose quartz for self-love and emotional healing.
