  • If you regret doing something during the day – forgive yourself before you sleep it will help you to rest and have more peaceful dreams. – Tell yourself “ The Devine in me forgives the human in me, and you for any misunderstandings or barriers that have come between us.”
  •  Don’t carry the events of the day, whether they are good, bad or indifferent, into the night. Bless them , release them, let them fade from your mind.
  • Soaking your feet in warm salty water before bed is another way to relax. Imagine of all the worries and stresses of the day being drawn out through the feet into the water.
  • If there is something you need to remember to do the next day, writing it down will enable you to let it go while you sleep.
  •  Avoid napping during the day to ensure the body and mind are adequately tired at bed time.
  •  Set a regular bed time – The body and mind will begin to recognise when it is time to sleep and time to wake, if done regularly
  •  Avoid exercise into the evening it can increase the body’s core temperature and stimulate the mind making it more difficult to switch off when you get into bed.
  • Avoid having clutter in the bedroom is also helpful for creating a peaceful state of mind before sleep.
