Fresh pj's = Fresh mind
Now we’re easing out of lock down (again), is your hectic schedule of socialising, being back in the office with that chaotic commute, and drinking tons of coffee just to keep you going throughout the day affecting the quality of your sleep? We know how important sleep is to ensure you get the most out of each day, so we have shared our tips for a restful sleep.
Optimizing your bedroom environment is the perfect starting point. Try minimising external noise, light, and artificial lighting – yes, unfortunately, it means staying off your phone before bedtime! Now we know everyone’s guilty of scrolling away, then suddenly realising that somehow it's midnight? The blue light filter can trick your brain into thinking it’s still daytime from the brightness. Not forgetting the content we see on social media can impact our emotions and keep you up all night, like still debating with yourself whether to buy that new jumper you saw on Insta earlier.
I hate to break it to you, but you and caffeine need boundaries. Caffeine can stay in your system for up to 6-8 hours, which means going caffeine-free later in the day is a must! But don’t worry, it doesn’t have to mean you miss out on your tea and biscuits in bed, but it does mean you’re better off having a cup of caffeine-free tea instead so that your sleep cycle starts to feel healthier.
Feeling totally relaxed and zen before bed is key to a good night’s sleep. Throw on a pair of cotton soft pyjamas and climb into a freshly washed bed... It’s honestly the best feeling ever! It certainly prepares you for a restful sleep.
Good night - we hope you get a good night’s sleep!
