Prep Your Sleep Space
The final weeks of the year are busy enough—so, you want to be sure you're getting a restful night's sleep when you finally do lie down. To cultivate yin, Chan says, it's best to keep electronics (such as phones, TVs and computers) out of your bedroom, as well as work-related items. If you can't completely remove them, you can cover them—drape a cloth over electronics and put work papers into a closed cabinet. And as tempting as it is to store items under your bed, Chan says to limit them to soft items, such as summer clothing and linens, and to not cram them into boxes tightly. If there's breathing room in and around the containers, energy can circulate, which she says will help you sleep better.
