MOOD 🖤 > | Here are four things that I’m going to do to improve my chances of a deeper and longer sleep tonight | . 1. Pre-bedtime Stretch: with lots of forward folds and hip openers with no backbends (as they actually stimulate the nervous system - they aren’t conducive to a good nights sleep). . 2. No screen (not even a screen with that yellow filter to avoid the alerting Blue-Light effect). I seem to be able to fall into a social media or email based vortex regardless of the lighting on my screen. . 3. Read a book that is so dry that I get all the way down the page only to realise that I didn’t absorb a thing and need to read it again. This will make me feel overwhelmed at the task ahead and without me even having to decide, my subconscious makes an executive decision to puts me straight to sleep. . 4. Guided Yoga Nidra/Relaxation (i will share the YouTube video that I have used in desperate times when 1-3 doesn’t work and I need someone to coach me towards sleep. (Check stories) . I’ve been a bit stressed of late and these four options have been relatively fool proof. Except for that one night that I mistakenly consumed my caffeinated nootropic supplement instead of my magnesium citrate tablet instead. That was a mistake and I ended up looking like this dog from 10pm to 6am. . >>> .
