    Am I the only one that’s guilty of some disruptive sleep habits, i.e. scrolling through my phone right before bed or late-night snacking? While I go to bed rather early (9:30 p.m. on the dot), I’m not always the best at setting myself up for a good night’s rest. I’ve shared before that one of the signs you need to slow down is lack of sleep. But I’ve learned, the hard way I might add, that the first step in taking care of your mental wellness (#selfcare) is making sure you’re getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep a night.

    One of the things I’ve started doing for better rest is not logging into social media 30 minutes before bed. I’ve also started taking a hot cup of Natural Calm, and sometimes if I really need it, I take the sleeping aid ZzzQuil.

    I recently posted on Instagram asking about some of your ‘before bed’ rituals. Y’all came through with your traditions. Here are all of your suggestions:

    • Cool room
    • Supportive pillow
    • No screens 20 min before bed
    • Tell spouse, “I’m winding down for the night” so they lower their voice volume
    • Dim lights in bedroom + set up book and water on the nightstand
    • “I swear by taking a probiotic and magnesium helps”
    • Dry brushing and Gua Shua
    • Massage feet with oils
    • Weighted blanket
    • Using an eye mask

    And if you’re a new mom looking for help to sleep train your baby, I shared some tips that may help. Read the post here.
