1. Stick to a Schedule

The best way to get a restful sleep is to follow the same sleep schedule every day. Unplug your electronics an hour before bedtime and give yourself an hour or so to go through your bedtime routine and relax before falling asleep.

 2. Exercise

Exercising in the morning or early afternoon helps your body use up energy and balance your hormones for a perfect sleep.

Just make sure not to exercise too close to bedtime or you might end up too pumped up to sleep.

 3. Take a Bath

Taking a bath can be a great way to unwind and ease sore back muscles, which may be the cause of your sleepless nights.

Add Epsom salt to the water and grab your favorite book to the perfect pre-bed experience.

4. Create a Cozy Space

Keeping a clean and inviting bedroom is a great way to promote peaceful sleep. Invest in a good mattress, pillows, and linens to keep your body warm and comfortable all night.

Pastel colors and ambient lighting will also help create the perfect ambiance for a good night’s rest. Lastly, place a Himalayan salt lamp on your nightstand for a finishing touch.

5. Get a Diffuser

A diffuser is a great way to get some of the healing and relaxing benefits of essential oils.

Place the diffuser on your nightstand and use it nightly.  Try lavender, chamomile, marjoram, bergamot, or ylang ylang essential oil.
