Wedding Insomnia

If you find yourself thinking about wedding payments and timelines when you should be getting your beauty sleep, here's a few things you might want to try:

-Have a "wind down" before bed.  Spend half an hour doing something relaxing - read, take a bath, journal, listen to music, etc.  Don't think about any of the things that might be stressing you out.

-Don't consume anything caffeinated or eat heavy foods before bed.

-Go to bed at the same time every night.  Your body will develop a routine.

-Make checklists.  If I feel like I've accomplished my checklist for the day and I have a plan for the next day, it's easier to fall asleep.

-Keep a paper and pen beside your bed.  If you find yourself waking up in the night with things to remember, quickly jot them down and then go back to sleep.

Does anyone else have tips that help them sleep at night?
