When your head hits the pillow, do you switch off straight away? If the answer’s no, you’re not alone. 16 million adults in the UK suffer from sleepless nights. Whether you have an entire evening free or only a couple of seconds to spare, we want to help you get a better night’s sleep. That’s why we’ve created a bedtime routine to suit every kind of day (yes, even the busiest ones!).
Accompanied by our Sleep Better blend of Jasmine, Sandalwood and Lavender, these steps will send you straight off to dreamland.
3 BEDTIME ROUTINES
Time to unwind
If you have an evening to yourself, why not start your sleep routine early?
Take a long hot bath using our Sleep Better bath oil. Scientists have found that a hot bath mimics your natural drop in body temperature that occurs night-time, triggering a similarly sleepy reaction.
To further relax the muscles and calm the mind, follow your bath with a self-massage. Warm our Sleep Better oil between your palms and massage it across the skin with gentle sweeping movements. Breathe in the calming scent and feel the day’s tension melt away as you move around your body.
Finally, turn on your Aroma Spa to diffuse our Sleep Better oil as you read a couple of pages of your book. When you can’t help but shut your eyes, surrender to the best night’s rest.
Even if you don’t have hours to spare, taking some mindful moments to de-stress in the evenings will make a world of difference to the quality of your sleep.
You might want to try a ten-minute meditation, taking slow and evenly-spaced breathes. If you find it hard to put down the day’s worries and anxieties, research shows journaling before bed can help.
To finish off, apply our Sleep Better Roller Ball to your pulse points. Not only will this help you get to sleep, but as your pulse points warm throughout the night and release the fragrance, it will help you stay asleep too.
Seconds to spare
Don’t worry if your day was packed to the brim and your sleep schedule has slipped off your radar. Short and simple practices can go a long way.
Spray our Sleep Better pillow mist into the air, around your body, and onto your pillow and bed linen. 92% of people said they found it easier to fall asleep, and we hope it’ll help you too.
Slip into your sheets and breathe in the scent as you get snug. Starting at your feet, and working your way up to your jaw, relax each one of your muscles in turn.
