Creating a sleep ritual is one of the best ways to relax before bed. Taking a warm shower or bath about 30 minutes before bed is a good strategy. Another way to relax before bed is by reading or listening to relaxing music.
Drinking caffeine-free tea is also a good way to relax before bed. Peppermint tea, cinnamon tea or herbal tea are all ideal teas to drink before bed. The key to relaxing before bed is to do activities that allow the body and mind to wind down before sleep. Exercising or watching television before bed are often too stimulating and can cause sleeplessness.
