What time should I start winding down? I usually go to bed around 9 pm.

I should go to bed as soon as I can. Maybe you Are not tired, but When you JUST lay to the bed, that feeling Is so comfortable. You shouldnt be on the phone or on laptot… You should JUST lay, And for example read a book if you aren't tired.

I go around 11
because I go to gym at 8 finish at 9 and get to home around 10
from 10 to 11 I do some streches and brushing my teeth and sleep at 11

Most 1 hour before as it gives you enough time to get off your phone and get little work done such as settling down and getting ready to call it a night

In my day-to-day i can't go to sleep before 10pm. Because my routine doesn't work out with my family's. So I usually start to winding down around 10-11pm.

I find 8 a right time or 8.30, try to read a book or do a hobby that relaxes you in bed bu try not to use any device. I like read or embroider before bed.

If you go to bed at 9 pm then you should start winding down at eight. At 8:00pm you should turn off all tvs, phones, tablets etc and do something like reading, drawing tidying, etc. For about half an hour. If you have a nightime facial routine then do that for however long and then listen to some calming music before going to bed.

I have usually done it 45-60 minutes before bed and I'd recommend that to you too. I'd recommend you try reading (I like comics and detective books a lot), drawing, meditate, playing games (with no electronics like cards or snake & ladders), stretch and exercise or anything really which doesn't involve a digital screen. Use the rest of the time to brush and floss 🙂 hope this helps

I recommend winding down around 8:20-8:30. You have plenty of time to prepare yourself for bed and stop all the things you can do in the morning.

What if you tired starting to wind down around 7pm?
Make sure your food is cooking for dinner, take a shower, do any night time rituals, take care of other needs. This way you have 2 whole hours before bed to prepare your mind for rest…

I would start about 8; prepare for the next day then unplug from electronics by 8:45 so you can begin to relax and truly unwind.

I’d say around 8:00 o’clock because it gives you lots of time to start a night routine and not using technology 1hr before you sleep will improve sleep quality.

Check the time you decide to sleep and actually the time you sleep. For me, when I decide to sleep it takes at least 3 hours to sleep. Therefore, 3 hours before I do everything needs to be done such as wash my dishes, prepare my clothes for tomorrow, check my phone, and wear my pyjamas. And go to bed 1 hour -30 mins before my actual sleep time. And listen wind down podcast

Its a good time and I usually go to bed at around 10pm but not later than 11 pm because I have a tendency to stay awake until midnight. During quarantine I started to adjust my sleeping schedule,I had a hard time adjusting but time flies I got used to it. Unplug everything and you can also meditate to relax your body and mind.

Around 8 pm, take time for skincare, stretching, flossing, drinking water and finally falling asleep which takes around 15 minutes

I would say an hour and a half. In the first 30mins get all the things you want to do on your phone done, like put your alarms, last check on social media, etc. So by the time you hit that hour before bed you aren't on your phone which will help with your sleep. It'll also give you time to do your night time routine or read a book or anything that doesn't involve technology.
