There are two times we should always try to avoid stress: when we wake up in the morning and when we go to sleep at night. Going to sleep stressed out can actually cause a bad night sleep and a more difficult wake up in the morning. No one wants that. Here are 5 steps to guarantee a relaxing evening:
- Do a late night stretch, like yoga!
- Never skip dinner, but do try and keep dinner the lightest meal of the day, try something light like a salad or soup
- Wind down with a relaxing herbal tea, non-caffeinated of course (try peppermint)
- Pamper yourself with some relaxing aromatherapy like a hot bath or smoothing body butter, and finally,
- Don't drink cold water, only room temperature! The cold water can shock your system, room temperature water is actually better for you.
