Turn your sleepy mode ON
with an oil diffuser & LED lights.
Dr. B. says
We’ve all heard that the bed and bedroom should be for just two things so your body and mind will learn the bed is for sleep. So what do you do when you’re either self-quarantining in your bedroom or stuck in a small studio or basement apartment?
Put your bedroom to sleep! In other words, do something to change the environment at bedtime. For example, tell your mind it’s time to start going into sleep mode by changing the lighting from cool to warm or adding a smell you find relaxing. If you’re on a budget, you can still make your room into a sleepy space by turning off overhead lights, folding down your sheets or blanket to help the bed look ready and inviting, and covering up electronics, papers, and other things that make you think about work and stress.
