7 Tips To A Good Night Sleep

November 28, 2017

Everyone needs a good night sleep. There is nothing like waking up to a brand new morning while feeling fresh and well-rested. As you feel re-energized upon waking, you’ll feel that you can conquer anything that will come your day.

For some people, sleeping comes easy. They can just lie down, shut their eyes and let sleep come to them. But for some, sleeping can be a frustrating ordeal. We prepared 7 scientific and practical tips that will help you achieve a good night sleep.

1. Take a hot bath

 Taking a hot bath before sleeping not only removes the dirt and grime of the day from your super busy day but it also lowers your body temperature. The rapid cool down after you get out of that relaxing hot bath will make you feel sleepy. So draw that bath and put drops of Rose Moon – Body Oil to help your skin retain its moisture. Spoil your self more, use the Faerie Coconut Milk Bath, its magickal formulation is especially made to destress the body and calm the mind. If you love baths or if you know someone who do, get this Goddess Ritual Bath Set, it includes witch-crafted items that comes in a beautiful hand-crafted wooden box that will surely take your pampering to the next level.

2. Set a bedtime

 Our body has a regular natural sleep-wake cycle or what experts refer to as the circadian rhythm. Having a schedule of sleeping and/or waking up will get our bodies in sync with our circadian rhythm thus helping us get a quality sleep. To attain good sync, you must avoid altering the times you sleep or you wake up. Try to set a time, same as everyday for your bed time.

3. Turn off electronics

We are all guilty of scrolling through our phones or watching the TV before going to bed. If you think that the light of those screens are helping you sleep, think again. Our body produces melatonin, a naturally occuring hormone that helps us fall asleep. Our brain secretes more melatonin when it’s dark so avoiding screens hours before our bed time will help us fall asleep easier. So make sure to turn off your phones before sleeping.

4. Get cozy!

Nothing beats a warm, cozy bed when you’re tired from work or when you just wanna chill. Invest on those fluffy pillows, comfy blankets, and smooth sheets and get excited when it’s near your bed time. It’s a smart move to invest on beddings because we spend almost half of our days in bed. Get this Spirit Nest Original design Ouija Dream Bedding Set, it will surely make your dreams inspiring. Improving your sleep environment will surely help you doze off easily.

5. Clear your head

Do you find yourself pondering on life’s deepest secrets whenever you plop down to bed? Somehow, you’ll slowly get lost in your thoughts and you’ll find your self wide awake, unable to sleep. Well, it’s time to change this habit. Try writing your thoughts before bed with the intention that you’ll review them when you wake up the next day. Use this powerful  7 Chakra Stone Energy Generator to guide your thoughts and balance your mood.This way, your mind can relax and you can empty your brain to let those zzz’s come in.

For days when you can avoid eating huge meals, try drinking herbal decaffeinated or sleepy time chamomile tea on this cute No Mud, No Lotus Mug as it will help you digest your food well and have a good night sleep.

June 27, 2022

Kicking off a new month, we welcome hot summer nights, new beginnings, and self-care into our space as we all learn the importance of slowing down and grounding to our current environment. Entering the month of July, we are led by the sign of the emotional and intuitive Cancer, encouraging all signs to slow down and live more in the moment. This could have us turning more to our roots and becoming more in touch with our intuition and our emotions, helping us to build a more grounded foundation within ourselves mentally and spiritually. 

In terms of planets, this month, we have the influence of many different planetary changes going on this month. This includes Venus, Jupiter, and Chiron as some of the main events. With that said, Venus will enter Cancer mid-month, highlighting a nurturing, compassionate, and gentle approach to love. This could also bring changes to the way we connect with and communicate with those we love, as well as invoke a deeper, more caring approach to our self-care routine. Following this, Chiron will turn retrograde on the 19th of the month, pushing the signs to turn within for wisdom and introspective for the next several months. We will then enter the Leo season on July 22nd, helping us to channel some fiery new confidence that invokes creativity, hard work, and a shift in focus towards creating the life we want. And finally, Jupiter will also go retrograde on July 28th in the sign of the Aries, pushing the signs to deeply examine and evaluate their life and their path to better navigate where they want and need to be.
