If you struggle with falling asleep or taking the time to properly wind down in the evening, aromatherapy might be what you need to get in the perfect self-care mood. Light your favourite calming candle an hour before you want to go to bed or add lavender essential oils into a diffuser to fill your room with relaxing scents. Many people find the soothing effects of lavender to be a great way to help them unwind and ultimately make it easier to fall asleep. Utilizing relaxing scents is such an easy way to elevate your evenings and achieve a more glamorous night time routine!
One of the biggest problems with our sleep habits is that we are too connected to our phones and other digital devices. At night, it’s super easy to lose track of time on our devices when we’re bored or can’t sleep. A great way to ensure you stay off your phone is to try a sleep mask! There’s nothing quite as glamorous or luxurious as silk, so this is a great product to help elevate your sleep care routine. It’s cooling and calming on the eyes and will do a much better job at blocking out unwanted distractions. It might take some time to adjust to the feeling of sleeping with an eye mask on, but you’ll be doing your health a big favour by getting into better sleep habits!
Read for 10 Minutes
A great way to ensure you stay off your device and connect with yourself more in the evening is to read, even if it’s just for 10 minutes before bed! If you’re like me, I have a super busy schedule and often don’t have time in my day to read recreationally. Adding it into your evening routine is a perfect way to wind down, relax and take a step back from the commotion of the day or even the week ahead. Reading is a fantastic way to help you fall asleep easier and prioritize more downtime. If you’re in need of a book recommendation, check out our recent article on the best books for summer 2021!
Purchase a Weighted Blanket
Take this as a sign to finally swap out your old blanket and make the investment in a weighted one! The phenomenal technology behind these comfy and cozy weighted blankets can help reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and are the perfect way to make your sleep care routine more glamorous. The unique, weighted design feels like a constant, comforting hug, and will ultimately help you fall asleep faster. While some might say these blankets are a bit too thick for summer, the fall and winter seasons are just around the corner, so this is definitely the best time to purchase one!
