The things you do before you go to bed at night can impact how well you’ll sleep at night. Break your bad habits, create new habits, and even set routines in order to assure you fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. Find out the 10 things you can do at night to ease your sleep.

Turn Off Electronics

Unplug to unwind. The bright screens of phones, tablets, televisions, and any other electronics can mess up our sleep cycles. The blue light given off by electronic screens send a signal to your brain that it’s daytime, even when it’s not. That wake-up signal leaves you feeling revved up right before you hit the sack.
