At Christy, we understand the importance of having a good night’s sleep! We all know if we have a bad night, it’ll impact the rest of our day.
Sleeping well is essential for us to stay both physically and mentally healthy, that’s why we’ve put together our top 5 tips for a good night’s sleep! Take a look at them below.
1. Make your Bedroom a Sanctuary
Your bedroom is the place you relax after a long day, this why creating the right setting is essential. You should make sure your room is clutter free, welcoming and styled to perfection to help you shut off.
Try to use cosy furnishings and accessories to create a sleep friendly environment as well as a calming colour palette! Our Jaipur throws and cushions are the perfect option to dress your bed, making a snuggly sleep sanctuary
2. Avoid Caffeine
Did you know that caffeine can stay in your system for up to 8 hours? So, your late afternoon coffee could be stopping you from nodding off in the evening!
Try and plan your caffeine intake around when you intend on going to sleep that day, avoiding it at least 6 hours before you go to bed.
3. Choose the Right Bedding
Choosing the right bedding and pillows is just as important as your choice in mattress when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep.
Make sure your pillows are plush, comfortable and supportive. We have a selection of pillows available, from our luxury deep sided pillows to our essential pillow pair. Our luxurious bedding will help you avoid tossing and turning at night, with a range of sheets in varying thread counts and sustainable fabric choices.
4. Stay off your Phone
The blue light from your phone and other gadgets tricks your brain into thinking it’s still day time and can reduce production of the sleep hormone, melatonin which helps you relax and fall into a deep sleep.
As tempting as it is to scroll through social media before you go to dozing off, try and avoid it at least an hour before bed!
5. Keep Active
Exercise is important to keep fit and healthy but did you know it can also help your sleep quality too? It’s a great way to physically tire your body but, it also helps with stress and reduces your body temperature, all helping improve your quality of sleep.
Avoid exercising too late at night as it may increase your adrenaline and have the opposite effect!
