Read to Sleep

Reading before bed can help us fall asleep a bit faster. When we read our levels of stress are decreased, allowing our bodies to start to relax. When our levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, are lowered the tension in our muscles eases up. By engaging ourselves in a good book, our minds get a break from stress and worries. I like to read before bed or as way to distract my thoughts when anxious and thinking too much.
