Go To Bed Earlier
Many people remain active far into the night trying to get as many things accomplished as they can. They do not go to bed until they are exhausted and even then, they lay in bed worrying about all the things they must do the next day. Going to bed earlier so you can relax before it is time to fall asleep can reverse this trend. You should also ensure that there is at least 9 hours between the time you get in bed and the time you must get up so you can get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Snuggling up to your partner before you are both exhausted can also lead to being intimate more often.
End The Day With A Relaxing Bath
Taking a bath or shower at the end of the day is a great way to relax your mind and your muscles to prepare for bed. Using scented bath products containing lavender, chamomile, vanilla, or jasmine can also help you relax and unwind. Having a glass of wine in the bath is not recommended, as alcohol can inhibit your ability to get to sleep.
Have Your Last Meal Several Hours Before Bedtime
Digestion has a rude way of interrupting your sleep with discomfort, so it is best to have your last meal of the day several hours before you are planning to go to bed. Having a heavy stomach when you get into the bed also reduces the chances that you will feel like rolling around in the sheets with your partner. Give your final meal of the day plenty of time to digest before you head to your bed.
Make Sure Your Bedroom Is A Relaxing Place
If your bedroom is filled with electronics, work projects, and hobby supplies, it will be difficult to stop thinking about them and think about sleep instead. These items in the bedroom are distracting and take away from the bedroom’s primary purposes of sleeping and making love. Remove these items from your bedroom and start conditioning yourself to use your bedroom for its main functions. You will find that more sleep and more sex come quickly.
