How to fall asleep

In theory.

I’ve always been a rubbish sleeper, but this stuff helps.

  1. Get up early and be consistent.
  2. Get some sunlight early.
  3. Do gentle, or not gentle, exercise early. Maybe yoga or walking.
  4. No caffeine generally, especially in the afternoon.
  5. No bright screens before bed.
  6. If stuff is on your mind before bed, write it down.
  7. Maybe read a real book or kindle, fiction is probably best.
  8. Try not to get too hot.
  9. No food in the two hours before bed.
  10. Late evening yoga.
