Sleep is one of the most essential elements that helps to shape our life. Without sleep, one is likely to suffer from fatigue, loss of concentration, physical ailments or psychological trouble. With the fast paced life that we all have, much of the time it is impossible to acquire the desired amount of sleep, leaving us weary by midday. It also makes us sleepy, and unable us to finish the works at hand properly.

There are multiple things you can do 30 minutes before bed. These things will assist you to a peaceful, sound sleep–something that we all require at the end of the day. First and foremost, before bed, one must not worry about whatever the stresses of the day. Or worry about your incomplete work, or things that will keep you awake. It is advisable to, as people say, sleep like a log.

This is not only about adults; children and younger individuals need their basic sleep as well for a healthier lifestyle. Here are some things you can do before bed if you want a better sleep.

Warm bath.

This applies to everyone regardless of age. Only keep in mind that since it is night time, it is better not to wash the hair. It will take more than half an hour to dry properly. A warm bath has the ability to de-stress you, helping you feel fresh. This freshness is effective to pull sleep over you. Have you noticed how babies tend to fall asleep right after a shower?

Be comfortable before bed.

After a warm bath, it is always advisable to wear fresh and comfortable clothes. Personally, I always feel comfortable in old clothes, that are nearly tearing apart. You know what I mean, right? Washed clothes that are loose fitting and soft are agreeable, making your skin breathe freely. Another way to be comfortable is to rub some lotion on your body. The sweet smell eases your brain. Also, brush your hair. Brushing makes your hair roots stronger, healthier, and tangle free.

Massage some light oil.

Light oil, or grease free oil has a special effect on relaxing the body. It is quite similar to the effect a warm bath has. Aromatic oil like almond, lavender, coconut, or even baby oil can be rubbed half an hour before bed. You can gently massage some  oil on you and your baby’s hair. For you, take a shower in the morning. As for your baby, they can leave it as long as you want to. Of course, there is another benefit: you will get soft, bouncy, and manageable hair in the morning!

Meditate.

Meditation is a great way to relax your body and soul. If you know how to meditate, just do it for 30 minutes before bed. It will have a calming effect on you and will put you to deep sleep. If you have never meditated before, simply download some free tracks from online and follow the instructions. If you don’t have enough time for that, then allow yourself to do it on your own. Close your eyes, and follow your breathing. Breathe deeply, in and out. Focus all your attention to your breathing only. Divert your mind if you can’t concentrate. Practise this for few days, and you’ll be able to do it with ease later.

Fix your room temperature.

During summer, make sure your room temperature is cooler than the outer temperature. Do this 30 minutes before bed, so that once you enter the room, you will feel crisp. Meanwhile, during winter, make sure the heater is on half an hour prior to your sleep. The warm room will likewise warm your body, unwinding you and putting you to instant sleep.

Prepare your bed.

A well made bed is very inviting. The freshly puffed pillows, the blanket, or the duvet in its perfect position, and a nice bed sheet is more than enough to make you feel sleepy. Preparing your bed prior to your sleep requires minimum effort and time.

Listen to music.

Another thing you can do 30 minutes before bed is to listen to some soft music. With the lights dimmed, the room temperature controlled, you can turn on some soft instrumental, classical, or some soulful music, close your eyes, and concentrate. You will fall asleep in no time.
