5 STEPS TO A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
You’ve made it to hump day! Congrats! I don’t know about you, but I could use a mid-week reset with a restful and good night’s sleep.
Here are five easy steps to get that good night’s sleep tonight.
1. TUNE OUT & SHUT DOWN
Use the bedtime feature on your phone to schedule down time. Set your phone to “do not disturb” starting an hour before bedtime and an hour or so after you wake up. This will help your mind and body to relax both before bed and when you wake up in the morning.
Research has shown that the blue light emitted from our screens, whether our computers, phones or TV’s, can suppress the production of melatonin. The less melatonin produced, the harder it will be to wind down.
Turn off the electronics and proceed to step two.
Nothing is more relaxing than a warm bath, am I right? Toss in one of our new Naked bath bombs, light a candle and put on your favorite calming music. Enjoy some ‘you’ time and unwind before you climb into bed for the night.
Use a mist to add a calming scent to your pillows, sheets and even mist a bit on your face. This is a great way to use aroma therapy and help yourself feel rejuvenated before closing your eyes.
5. CLOSE YOUR EYES
Our eyes work hard all day long. Give them a little TLC before you close them to sleep. You can use a lavender scented eye mask and warm it up in the microwave for relief or cool it down in the freezer if you have any inflammation. Unwind, relax and sleep well.
