Many people that struggle with depression also struggle with sleep. It could be getting little sleep or sleeping too much. The effects can cause you to feel tired all the time and struggle through the day. There is a way to better sleep and here are some helpful tips.
First, find a good bedtime routine. If you are like me and most people you struggle to put down your digital devices and especially at night. Being on your phone or computer can hinder you from relaxing and getting to sleep. It may be a good idea to put your devices away at least one hour before you plan to go to sleep. This way you will not be overstimulated.
Next, find a way to wind down from your day. Maybe it is reading a book of poetry or listening to music. It could be having hot tea after dinner, taking a hot shower/bath and getting into your favorite pajamas!
Once you get into a routine that works well for you, stay with it. We are creatures of habit so we do best when things are stable and routine. Here is hoping for better sleep for everyone!
