Prepare for bedtime by engaging in relaxing activities and establishing a nightly routine to unwind before lights out. Consider trying out progressive muscle relaxation, breathing exercises to activate your parasympathetic nervous system, taking a soothing bath with Epsom salts and essential oils, or even listening to calming ambient music.
