I love the suggestion to turn off the blue light! Many of us are on our phones or computers late into the evening. Read a book. Great idea! There was a reason our parents read to us before bedtime. It is relaxing, takes concentration and will help switch off all the days events that we tend to think about before bed. I do often visualize a beautiful place or a happy memory as I’m falling asleep, another good idea.
