Here are some fantastic tips to help you get a great night’s sleep, kindly supplied by TEMPLESPA.
1. Lighten up
Keep evening meals light and limit caffeine and alcohol.
2. Clock watch
Try to go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time each day.
3. Resting ritual
Tell your body it’s sleep time by doing the same things every night before you go to bed. Try a soothing night cream such as the TEMPLESPA aromatherapy resting cream, REPOSE. The decadent combination of frankincense, hops and lavender will encourage you to breathe deeply and aid a restful night’s sleep.
4. Power down
An hour before bed, turn off your electrical devices including your smart phone.
5. Ideal ambiance
Total darkness, quietness and a cool room (no more than 18˚C) promotes the best sleeping environment.
6. Work it out
Exercise during the day to use up energy, but don’t exercise too close to bedtime.
7. And breathe…
De-stress. Be calm. Take three deep breaths in and let each breath out slowly – imagine you are blowing up a balloon inside you; let your tummy and chest expand as you breathe in, and let it subside as you breathe out.
8. Me, me, me
‘Me-time’ is good for your mind. Make to-do lists and jot down what’s on your mind to get things out of your head while you sleep.
