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.

6. Drink tea

Avoid drinking coffee or tea, at least those with caffeine hours before your bed time. Caffeine is a stimulant and it will make your brain active. You might want to also avoid over eating, you might experience discomfort or worse get heart burn or acid reflux. 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.

Just follow this breathing pattern 1) Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds 2) Hold your breath for 7 seconds 3) Blow the air out of your mouth and make a “whoosh” sound for 8 seconds. Repeat the process for at least 3 times. This helpful technique will surely relax your mind, helping you to fall asleep quickly.
