Top 4 Pre-Wedding Sleep Tips
- Set a Schedule. Setting a sleep schedule which allows you to go to sleep and wake up at the same time everyday. This can realign your body’s internal clock. It is important to follow this routine even if you don’t feel tired at bedtime or ready to get up. Having a healthy and happy body is the most important thing to consider, everything else comes second.
- Turn off all devices. It’s easy to call it a night early, it’s not as easy to actually fall asleep. Getting stuck in an endless scroll before sleep is everyone’s guilty pleasure. Turning off your phone at a certain time helps you to resist the temptations of Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter etc. and just get some sleep.
- Set an exercise routine. Part of the reason you may be having sleepless nights during the planning process can be because of stress. Exercise is a great stress reliever and also aids with sleep. Taking 30 minutes out of your evening to get in some cardio or take a class is a great way to get out the nervous energy and get you tired and ready for bed in no time! Just make sure to leave a 20 minute wind down window before you actually get into bed to allow yourself to cool down.
- Don’t over work. Many working couples come home from a long day’s work to then dive right into another. Feeling like there are not enough hours in the day to go to work and then come home and work on the wedding is normal. This is where having the on site event coordinators comes in handy. Having someone available to you that will work with your vendors and bring your vision to life can really take a load off. This way you can spend more down time relaxing and therefore getting better/fuller night sleeps.
