Marvin develops a healthy bed time routine

Often we have young people staying at the Crisis Shelter that really struggle with sleep. Marvin developed a habit of coming to the staff office close to bedtime to have a chat in order to relax before bed.

We would talk about theatre, TV and film for about 10 minutes every single night. He would have me play one song on the computer by the band “Bedouin Soundclash” before retiring to his room. Part of our work here is role modeling and helping the youth develop healthy routines. He came up with this one on his own though and it worked well for him. He now has his own apartment and I think it is pretty likely he has continued some version of this bedtime routine.

Sweet dreams Marvin!
