So yes, belly dance class last night put me in a positive headspace . . . but last night it took me forever to fall asleep (which is what happened the previous week as well).

This morning I'm tired, a bit sore, and facing a long day.

Tomorrow morning is Lodge (60 miles away).

Does anyone have any tips for how to quiet the body after evening exertions so sleep comes more easily? I don't want to be awake half the night after every class!


ETA: I went back and changed the title of this entry. I've been alternately laughing at myself and kicking myself when I read my old entries and see how many are titled with such vivid subjects as "Monday Morning" and "Tired." I'm going to do better this time around.

progressive relaxation techniques are kind of the classic: https://www.anxietybc.com/sites/default/files/MuscleRelaxation.pdf

A lot of people find a hot beverage soothing and relaxing before bed. It can range from a simple cup of hot water with a little lemon in it to herbal tea, caffeine tea, coffee, or even something savory like chicken broth.

Also, quiet relaxing music can be helpful.
