Having a good bedtime routine can help you get a great night’s sleep in preparation for a great day ahead, and these 9 idols know that better than anyone. Take a look at the 9 pre-sleep habits they stick to every night—some of them are pretty unusual.
1. Jungwoo (NCT)
Before NCT’s Jungwoo goes to sleep, he always eats something. Eating right before bed isn’t always a good idea for people with slower metabolisms, but it can help you fall asleep quicker and have a more restful night.
2. Wonwoo (SEVENTEEN)
Before SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo goes to sleep, he does something particularly unusual: he listens to sad music. Listening to music before bed has actually been shown to improve the quality of your sleep, though sad music is an interesting choice.
3. Chaeryeong (ITZY)
Before Chaeryeong goes to sleep, she likes to watch ASMR videos for almost two hours. ASMR is known to help many people feel relaxed, calm, and happy, which is great for a good night’s sleep.
Before Heize goes to sleep, she likes to watch mukbangs (eating broadcast). Surprisingly, there are some benefits to watching these foodie videos. Psychologists have suggested they can help relax you, decrease loneliness, and even stop you from overeating yourself.
5. Seungsik (VICTON)
Before VICTON’s Seungsik goes to sleep, he fills his humidifier with water. Sleeping with a humidifier on is thought to help keep your respiratory track healthy and prevent dry passages that can lead to infection. Seungsik also eats something good for his throat before bed—essential for the group’s main vocalist.
6. Sejun (VICTON)
Before VICTON’s Sejun goes to sleep, he always remembers to tell himself he did well that way. Praising yourself is a great way to boost your self-esteem and make you more confident about upcoming challenges.
7. Jeewon (CIGNATURE)
Before CIGNATURE’s Jeewon goes to sleep, she makes sure to apply lip balm. If you’re susceptible to dry and chapped lips, applying balm before sleeping is essential in replenishing moisture lost overnight.
8. Hangyeom (Seven O’Clock)
Before Seven O’Clock’s Hangyeom goes to sleep, he drinks milk. Some evidences suggests that consuming dairy products before bed can increase the chance of nightmares, but milk actually contains amino acids and hormones that promote sleep.
9. Damon (VARSITY)
Before VARSITY’s Damon goes to sleep, he also likes to drink milk. Aside from its sleep benefits, milk is always a great source of calcium, protein, and other nutrients.
