7 Additions to Your Nightly Routine That Will Help You Get a Better Night's Sleep ...


If you have trouble sleeping at night, you likely need some new additions to your nightly routine. Maybe you don’t even have a nightly routine, and you want to start one. Getting into a certain pattern at night is good because you will keep up with the healthy habits and your body will know it’s time to sleep once it is used to it. For example, you may brush your teeth and go to bed in no real routine, only to find yourself staring up at your ceiling for hours wondering when you are going to fall asleep. If this sounds like you, try some of these additions to your nightly routine to help you get and stay asleep with ease.

1. Relaxing Tea

I find this the most effective out of all the additions to your nightly routine. Some brands sell effective herbal tea blends designed for sleep, such as Nighty Night by Traditional Medicinals or Bedtime by Yogi. I think both taste excellent and work like a charm. Plus, just the act of sipping a mug of cozy tea before you go to bed is calming and makes for a healthy routine. Make sure you don’t drink a tea with caffeine though; that may have the opposite effect and keep you awake. I also love decaf peppermint tea because it is naturally caffeine-free and soothes any digestive issues that may be keeping you awake.
