Right before you head to the bedroom every night, you probably brush your teeth. But, if you have trouble falling asleep, consider doing that earlier.
Taking a long time to fall asleep may have something to do with your pre-bed routine. And you may need to change it up. Even if you start dozing off, doing any sort of activity right before bed can cause you to have a spike in energy, and your body may think it’s not time to go to sleep after all. And this can be caused by anything, even turning the light in the bathroom on.
If you’re having trouble falling asleep, try doing all your pre-sleep routines 30 minutes earlier. Then when you do go to bed, you should fall asleep easier.
