Self-care is first is essential to maintaining your health and sustaining your new NOW.
While you must be familiar with the concept by NOW, it can be challenging to implement a self-care routine. One of the simplest yet often overlooked forms of self-care is to ensure we’re getting enough sleep.
Sleep is essential for your well-being. It recharges the brain, keeps the skin healthy, and reduces stress levels. Yet, many of us are guilty of staying up too late or not getting enough sleep, resulting in constant fatigue, stress, and even an unhealthier diet.
If you’re ready to prioritize your sleep and give your Mental Plane mind and Physical Plane body what it needs, happy NOW!
Set a Strict Bedtime Schedule
One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting enough sleep is to set yourself a strict bedtime schedule. Go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. This will help regulate your body clock and improve the quality of your sleep. If you struggle with falling asleep, try to wind down at least an hour before bed, and avoid using electronic devices such as smartphones or tablets as the blue light can disrupt your sleep.
Create the Perfect Sleep Environment
The environment in which you sleep can also have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep. Make sure your bedroom is quiet, cool, and comfortable. Add a relaxing scent to the room, such as lavender or chamomile, which can help you to feel relaxed and calm. Additionally, ensure that your mattress and pillows are comfortable and provide adequate support for your body.
Relax Before Bedtime
Creating a relaxing bedtime routine can also help improve the quality of your sleep. Try to avoid stressful activities before bedtime, such as work-related tasks or watching the news. Instead, opt for creating a morning and evening self-care routine that you can turn into habits. Keep it like a little checklist of things you do each morning and every evening. Simple calming activities such as writing in your journal, reading a book, taking a warm bath, or practicing yoga or meditation will give you control of your new NOW.
Incorporating these simple self-care practices into your daily routine can have a profound impact on your Physical and Mental Plane health. By focusing on sleep, you can improve your overall well-being, reduce stress levels, and boost your productivity and concentration throughout the day.
Sustain your new NOW and take the first step towards better self-care – prioritize your sleep starting NOW.
P.S. Today’s my birthday!
I always give a pint of my O-Negative blood on my birthday. Every O-Neg pint saves 5 premature babies’ lives. I was 3 months premature so I give for them to live. I’m also going to bed early!
