  • Make your room dark and cool

We need to indicate our body that it is time to fall asleep by creating a relatively dark environment, darkness triggers the release of hormones like melatonin in your brain that initiate sleep and promote deep sleep. Also, keep your room cool, open a window or use AC for that as it helps in getting a good sleep.

  • Do relaxing bedroom rituals

To prepare your body and mind for sleep you need to do relaxing rituals in the evening. Your daily routine can be stressful so doing these activities will promote better sleep and treat insomnia. You can do activities such as take a warm bath, deep breathe, avoid using a computer or laptop and go for a head massage etc. Do any activity that relaxes you.
