Bedtime Routines for a Glorious Night’s Sleep

Bedtime Routines for a Glorious Night’s Sleep

I recently read Arianna Huffington’s “The Sleep Revolution”. She says that we are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis and what is needed, is nothing short of a sleep revolution. This made me think about my own sleep routine and the number of hours of sleep I get….5 on average, maybe 6 if the baby decides to sleep through the night. Sigh….

One of my goals for 2018 was to get more sleep. I’ve been so busy with work, kids and home that I haven’t paid attention to my own sleep routine or rather lack of it. I’ve been trying to sleep train my 5 month old and the first thing I did was establish a bedtime routine.

Do you have a bedtime routine?  A consistent bedtime routine relaxes the mind and transitions the body from activity to rest. A routine is important for a good night’s sleep for both children and adults alike.

Here are some things that I have been following that have helped improve the quality of my sleep

  • Switch off devices: Turning off the phone helps. Honestly, it doesn’t always happen. I try and be done using my phone in the hour before I get into bed.
  • Skincare Routine: I complete my night time skincare routine with lavender oil. It has a calming effect on the body and almost induces sleep
  • Relaxation: Stretch away the stress. Stretching almost has an immediate effect with helping you fall asleep.

 A comfortable sleep environment is just as important as a bedtime routine. Investing in quality sheets is often overlooked. Until I started using organic sheets I had no idea how quality bedding can have such a positive impact on quality of sleep. I may be biased, but swapping your bedding for organic cotton bedding is a small change that can have a huge impact.

You will be surprised how the color of sheets effect your sleep pattern. Grey, white and shades of blue are considered the best colors for sleep since they are calming. Looking for the perfect color of sheets? Jefferson Lane has just the colors you’ll love.

At Jefferson Lane, we truly believe that better sheets mean better sleep. Organic sheets look as great as they feel. You have to try it to believe it.

Our bedrooms, and the things we put in them, are actually more important to a good night’s sleep than you might guess. It’s where you go to relax, unwind, and likely, where you feel the most at home.
