Develop A Bedtime Routine
Getting enough sleep is vital for managing your stress levels and maintaining your health, and a relaxing bedtime routine can help facilitate that. Some things to consider including in your routine:
A skincare routine – pampering your skin with quality products can keep your skin looking great and feel luxurious and soothing.
Relaxing music or white noise – It can be easier to fall asleep when loud or sudden noises are drowned out.
Aromatherapy – lavender has been shown to promote sleep.
Find A Body Practice That You Love
Whether it’s regular pedicures, a professional massage, or using a sauna, consider finding a body practice that you enjoy and indulge in it on a regular basis. Short on cash? Many practices can be engaged in at home for a fraction of the cost. For example, consider:
Self-massage with foam rollers or tennis balls
Using the sauna at your gym
Make Exercise Fun
We all know that exercise is necessary for good health, but did you know it can help improve your stress and sleep as well? For best results, find an exercise routine that you enjoy. Don’t limit yourself to running on a treadmill–consider training for a race, playing Ultimate Frisbee, zumba, dance, or any other activity that you will enjoy and want to keep doing.
Good sleep is an important part of self-care. When you’ve taken care of your body and mind, don’t forget to hit the sack at a reasonable time, and then you can sleep easy, knowing that you’ve set yourself up to have a great day tomorrow.
