Here’s some simple science-based habits that support deep restful sleep magick:
Wind Down- Meditate, read spend time relaxing time with family (if possible), have some herbal tea or take a hot bath to wind down before laying down to rest.
Cut back on Caffeine – keep caffeine for early morning only. Try it.
Limit screen viewing- use night shift on your iPhone or tablet so that screens have a more orange glow after sunset. Use blue light blocking glasses when looking at screens.
Exercise – work out daily will make you tired at night. Seriously.
Protein rich diet – yep. Eat well it works.
Dreams: Our dreams contain emotions that we are processing and help us to purify ourselves of their painful residue. Dreams also can process what we’e learned during the day and can also purify our painful emotions. Keep a pen and paper by the bed and write down your dreams.
Hops, valerian, passionflower, chamomile, kava, lavender are all herbs that welcome sleep, rest and relaxation.
Be willing to try! Sleep is the foundation to a happy life and great health.
