The Sleep of Your Dreams Begins With Your Bedtime Routine

Sleep, glorious sleep! What would we do without it? On average, we spend about 1/3 of our life sleeping (or attempting to do so), and yet many of us don't make sleep as much of a priority as we should. Establishing a relaxing bedtime routine is often overlooked, but it holds incredible potential to improve our sleep quality by signaling to the body that it's time to wind down and prepare to rest.
By prioritizing relaxation and self-care in the hours leading up to bedtime, you pave the way for a restful and rejuvenating night's sleep, so we've put together our favourite soothing habits to incorporate into your bedtime routine to have a deeper, more restful sleep and make bedtime your favourite part of the day!

1. Set a Technology Curfew

Aim to disconnect from your phone, tablet, TV and computer at least 1 hour before you hop into bed as the blue light emitted by these devices can interfere with your sleep throughout the night.

2. Create a Calming Environment 

Dim the lights in your living space and bedroom to create a cozy and relaxing ambiance. Use aromatherapy, such as essential oils or scented candles, with calming scents like lavender or chamomile to create a tranquil vibe.

3. Try Gentle Stretching or Bedtime Yoga 

Try some gentle stretching or a short, low-impact yoga session to release tension in your body. Focus on relaxing stretches and connect to your breath with deep breathing exercises.

4. Take a Warm Bath or Shower

Enjoy a warm bath or shower to help relax your muscles and promote a sense of calmness. Consider adding some Epsom salts or essential oils to the water for an extra soothing effect.

5. Practice Mindfulness or Meditation

Spend a few minutes practicing mindfulness or meditation. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath or engage in a guided meditation to quiet your mind.

6. Sip on a Warm Drink

Prepare a calming cup of Deep Sleep Remedy with your choice of milk before bed to help you fall asleep faster, experience a deeper sleep and wake feeling energised.

7. Read a Book

Read a good book (preferably fiction or something non-stimulating) to help your mind relax and shift away from any stressors and screens.

8. Journal it Out

Take a few moments to write in a journal. You can reflect on your day, express gratitude, or jot down any thoughts or concerns to clear your mind and promote a sense of emotional well-being. If you're new to journaling, use these prompts to get you started.

9. Create a Consistent Sleep Schedule 

Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day (even on weekends), to regulate your body's internal clock and promote better sleep quality and balance. This will help you to fall asleep faster and wake up ready for the day.

Remember, finding practices that work best for you and align with your preferences and lifestyle is key. Experiment, adapt, and create a routine that suits your needs, and enjoy the positive impact it has on your sleep and well-being. 

Rest well, live well! 

Sweet dreams
