It’s important to get your body and brain to think of your bed as a place to sleep.
So if you’re struggling to fall asleep, press the reset button. Get out of bed and don’t go back unless you’re really ready for sleep.
Instead, sit in a chair and read a book under low light. When your eyelids start to feel heavy, go back to your room. Repeat as many times as you need to until your body gets the message that bed is for sleep.
This type of bed restriction is the foundation of cognitive behavioural therapy for treating insomnia.
This challenge is for people who can’t fall asleep so, if you don’t have this problem, instead work on reinforcing one of the previous tips that you’re struggling with!
