8 ways to fall asleep

8 ways to fall asleep

Sleep! It is crucial, but difficult for me to settle down and have a good nights rest after getting home from a full day of work and attending an after-work event. I'm still keyed up and thinking about my day, what's on my to-do for tomorrow & rest of the week. However, if I don't sleep well, the next day will be more challenging & not as productive. Below are 8 ways I try to unwind to ensure I can get a full nights sleep: 

  1. Catch up with family members/read personal emails on the way home to take your mind off work-related topics
  2. Listen to calming music (my go-tos are Michael Bublé & Norah Jones)
  3. Take several deep breaths
  4. Have a cup of decaffeinated tea
  5. Take a shower, followed by a relaxing skincare routine
  6. Read for at least 15 minutes before turning out the light (something not pertaining to a career)
  7. Put lavender oil on your pillow
  8. Work as hard as you possibly can to shut out thoughts of work/stress/to-do lists

Calming beauty products are always a great option as well. Clickable links below!
