You deserve glorious sleep. It’s that simple. Stress, overthinking, worries - the culprits that keep you awake, prevent peaceful sleep. And when waking up rested is the name of the game, it’s time to take action.
To make it easy, we’ve condensed our insider info into 3 steps you can take tonight for the kind of sleep that moves mountains:
Worrying is what makes us human. And nowadays we have a lot of reasons to be worried. Will it help? It's debatable. Can we control it? Not always. But can we choose when to worry? Yes.
You need to be strict with yourself. Sleep is sacred. At Drowsy we recommend a hard stop for worries. 2 hours before bed we write down everything that’s on our minds. It doesn’t matter how silly it seems.
Once you’ve written down your worries, leave them there until tomorrow.
It’s unbelievably therapeutic, and you’ll find you sleep soundly, knowing everything that was on your mind, is now on paper.
Find a comfortable position, close your eyes, and exhale completely. Inhale quietly through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, and then exhale audibly through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat this cycle 3-4 times to promote relaxation and reduce stress before bedtime.
Stress is as much a physical thing as it is mental. When we feel tense, our muscles are less relaxed. Remedy the day with light stretching to release the tension in your muscles. Then take a long, really hot shower with a drowsy candle to melt away the stress.
The knockout scent and hot water combo is the best way to zone out before bed.
Remember. Sleep is more than a necessity, it’s an act of self care. When you put sleep first, you unlock the best version of you.
I hope you enjoyed this content and wish you glorious, restorative sleep every night.
