We all need a bedtime routine, but for some reason most of us adults don't have one. For our little ones, we know that after dinner they probably need to rinse off the day in some warm water, maybe we slather their soft skin with some lavender lotion, we turn off the overhead lights for them & leave just a few lamps on. A book is always indicated, a song....Are you picking up what we're putting down?
YOU, full gown you, need a bedtime ritual too. We tend to work or play all day, get on screens late into the night, have bright lights on, take in stimulating information right before bed and then just expect ourselves to fall asleep. For most of us, that's not a recipe for a sound night's sleep. Sink into dreamland with our Sleep box:
