Episode 25: How to Create the Best Evening Routine with Cannabis for Good Sleep
Are you not a morning person or are you just not getting enough sleep? I used to say being a night owl is in my DNA because my mom has always worked nights and stayed up late.
But if I’m being honest, I wasn’t a morning person because I wasn’t getting enough sleep to function in the morning. When I fixed my sleep issues, I was able to become a morning person.
One major key to getting a restful night’s sleep is a relaxing evening routine that tells your brain it’s time to wind down. The Sleep Foundation says habits help our brain recognize when it’s time to go to sleep so, in this week’s episode I give you tips and tricks on how to create your own cannabis-infused evening routine.
