Take a Soothing Bath
A soothing, warm bath with a few candles is one of the best ways to calm down before bed. A bath is always the perfect way to destress and relax!
Make it part of your night time routine to soak in calming bath bombs, bath salts, or even some essential oils! The smell of essential oils helps your mind relax, while bath salts help detox your body.
For a relaxing atmosphere, it is better to avoid too aggressive light sources and prefer to multiply the candles with relaxing perfumes. Light them up just before getting into the bath to enjoy the soothing glow of the flames.
Sip Warm, Calming Drinks
Sipping on a warm beverage after a soothing bath is always the perfect way to unwind.
Chamomile tea with honey is also an excellent way to unwind and make your sleep more restfully.
Read a Relaxing Book
Wondering how to wind down?
Reading a book that you enjoy is a great way to get your body to relax and induce sleep, as fictional stories help you escape reality, by creating an oasis of peace and easing tensions.
We recommend a paperback book rather than an e-book!
Write Down Your Thoughts
If the stress of your day-to-day job isn’t letting you unwind, then we recommend taking an hour before bed to sit down and write down a to-do list for the next day.
If you have worrying thoughts, write them down with ways to solve it. After that, put it away and look at in the morning. This is a great way to clear your mind before bed!
Make Your Bedroom Your Sanctuary
There are many ways to relax and sleep, but making your bedroom a sanctuary is by far the most important!
Your bedroom should give off a relaxed atmosphere! So, ensure your walls are painted in serene colours, that you have good black out curtains and that there are no distractions.
