Two top ways to relax your brain before going to bed:
Bottom Line: There are so many different ways to get from point A to point B. In this case point A is getting to sleep and B is staying asleep. If you often find your mind racing as you're attempting to fall asleep, preventing you from falling asleep, you're far from alone. That was long one of the biggest struggles of one of the most brilliant people of our time. Bill Gates. What he's discovered over the years to obtain a good night's sleep is surprisingly simple and perhaps just surprising for one of the world's wealthiest. It's a two-step process:
1. Do the dishes
2. Read a physical book in bed
That's it. Research has actually demonstrated that doing dishes is actually a natural stress reliever and brain relaxing technique (who knew right?)...and we've long had research that that TV/electronics in bed are counter-productive.
So if you find yourself doing the dishes and reading a book tonight, you can do so knowing that Bill Gates is doing the same thing & you're both likely to sleep better for it...
