Step 1: Listening to Calm Music
Listening to peaceful music often helps me go to sleep faster. It distracts the mind and blocks out unwanted noises.When listening to music, wear comfortable headphones and listen at a low volume.
Step 2: Drink Tea
Drinking hot chamomile or another herbal (non-caffeinated) tea is proven to releave stress and calm the body. Also, drinking warm milk before bed has similar effects.
Step 3: Exercise
Exercising several hours before going to sleep cause your body to relax and makes you tired. Running, swiming, walking, and sports are all good ways to get exercise during the day.
Step 4: Reading
Reading is a great way to relieve stress. Try to find a boring thing to read because that works even better.
Step 5: Count Sheep
This actually is a good way to get to sleep for some people. It helps because it takes your mind off of other things and eventually bores it to sleep. You can always count something else if sheep are too boring. Like purple dinosaurs or walking brocoli people. Anything works.
Step 6: Other Ways
If the other steps didnt help, try some of these...
Take a hot bath before bed
Do some boring homework
Try tensing your body and relaxing for 15 seconds
Get up and take a walk/relax on the couch
