After a long day, it's nice to just come home and wash it away. Standing in a hot shower or taking a hot bath can relieve tension and reduce stress It also causes your brain to literally relax making your body feel calm and ready for bed.
As hard as this is for me, the nights that I don't look at my screen and just relax, my sleep has been much better. So unplug your devices and set them aside to charge for the next day, while you charge for the next day.
3. Start a Gratitude Journal
Journal five things that you are grateful for that happened today. It can be something small like, "my commute to work wasn't bad today", to something big like a passing grade on a test or a Promotion from work. Start journaling your five things every night before bed and soon you'll start to realize that your days were maybe not as bad as they seemed. It is scientifically proven that the last thing you see or think about sets the tone for at least the first four hours of sleep. So why not have them be positive... Right??
