Surely, after a busy day at work, you can’t fall asleep for a long time. This is quite a common occurrence. In this case, it is worth learning to switch attention from work moments to home ones, and also learn to relax.
The main thing before going to bed is to be able to switch from activity and wakefulness to relaxation.
In order to fall asleep faster, you need at least one hour not to engage in active mental activity. The second prerequisite is the ritual of falling asleep: you need to stick to one time, sleep in one place, comfortable and conducive to sleep. Before going to bed, it is not recommended to read and watch TV. It is best to fall asleep in a room with the lights off. Weekends should never be spent in bed. If a person spends the whole day on the couch, he will still feel sleepy. And if during the day you fall asleep, then wake up, this will lead to sleep disturbance and make sleep less quality.

First you need to answer a few simple questions. For example: what kind of activity gives you pleasure? Did you have such an experience when you did something and received moral pleasure, felt your importance? What can you do now to understand what is valuable to you and what is not? By answering these questions, you can understand what to do next.
