  • Stop using electronic devices at least 30 minutes before you go to sleep.
  • Have a routine set in place that tells your brain it’s time for sleep. Washing your face, stretching, or writing a journal entry may be things to incorporate.
  • Make sure that there are no lights in your room.
  • Turn on some white noise. I sleep with a box fan and it automatically tells my mind that its time to sleep.
