As we approach winter daylight savings and the evenings draw longer, the idea of an easy night in seems more appealing so why not make the most of that and ensure that you are getting the best night’s sleep and wake up refreshed and rejuvenated without having to reach for a coffee or concealer!
A bedtime routine may seem unnecessary for those over the age of 10 but taking a little time before you go to bed to unwind from a hectic day can help to calm and relax you and get you ready to go to sleep. Doing the same thing each night before you go to sleep also helps train your brain that it is now time to feel sleepy and while help you to drift off more easily.
What you include in your routine depends on what relaxes you but try to turn off all devices about 60 minutes before you go to bed. Dimming the lights can also help as bright lights signal to your brain that it’s time to be awake. Instead light a candle, such as a Light Up, Light Up and create the relaxing ambience of a luxury spa in your home while helping your brain to associate that scent with bedtime.
You can also use fragrance to relax your mind. The essential oils within fragrances not only have a calming effect but also leads your brain to associate that scent with sleep. Spritz your pillow lightly with Light-Hearted for a peaceful and comforting night’s sleep.
