What helps you to relax?

I have a few things that have helped me to relax esp at night…

here are a few tips

I had a nice bath with some lavender and clary sage, it was really relaxing and i had my radio on as well so just relaxing in the bath listening to nice music.

I have my mood lighting colour changing diffuser on as well and radio,

taking the blue light off my tv has helped a lot too; the light was causing me a lot of stress and i didnt know, i should sleep better now and get tired easier now i have done this

My vape, I’ll puff on it.

Music, music always helps. Silence can be triggering when I’m alone with the voices.

My CBD drops help with the anxiety.

Clean sheets and a hot shower for a nice night sleep.

Anyone try mood lighting? i have a colour changer and it looks nice and chilled and warm as well, its nice,

The thing with the blue light on computer screens is the blue light tricks your mind into thinking it is daylight so it keeps you alert, your mind doesn’t wind down like it should, you can with the nightlight on in display settings.

I lay down in my bed and count down, thinking of drifting off away on the current on a sailboat, I just close my eyes and take deep breaths :upside_down_face:
