Step 1: Create a bedtime routine
This includes putting your phone away 30 minutes before you go to sleep. Try to wind down with a cup of tea, a book or a sleep meditation.
Step 2: Write it down
To reduce anxiety about tomorrow or the events during the day – write them down. By writing them down you give your mind a physical outlet for the nervous tension you are experiencing.
Step 3: Aromatherapy
Creating a relaxing atmosphere can help lull us into a restful night of sleep. Try calming essential oils such as lavender on your bed linen or in your diffuser.
Step 4: Nervous system Care
We can care for our nervous system in many ways. Good diet, exercise, meditation, breathing and yoga. Supplements are also a good way to nurture and feed your nervous system, especially during times of stress.
