It’s been a long week, hasn’t it?

The days are getting longer here in the northern hemisphere — and for many of us, the extra light brings joy.

But the extra light also keeps us wakeful for longer. Soon, even 8 pm will be nearly as bright as mid-day.

That extra light — as welcomed as it might be after such a long and dark winter — can do us a big disservice. When there’s more daylight outside, do you ever feel like you pack more activities into your day? Does it take more effort to slow down for bedtime? Do you tend to go to bed later?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above questions, keep reading! I made a video just for you.

Instead of reading you the top mental health & psychology news stories this week, I’ve decided to switch things up a bit. Instead of giving you an overview of the news that’s important for just that week, I want to give you a video that you can return to again and again if needed.

This week’s video dishes out tips on how to slowly ease into the evening hours. Watch it now, watch it tomorrow, watch it any time you need a refresher on how to slow down your body and mind before bedtime.

This video is based on 7 Ways to Slow Down Before Bedtime, which was originally published in my Panic About Anxiety blog.
