An unconducive physical environment
plays a significant role in determining the
quality of one's sleep; loud colours, inadequate
lighting, and clutter have the potential to
interfere with a night of restful sleep.
Ambient lighting influences one's sleep; being
exposed to cold, white lights prior to hitting
the bed can make it harder to nod off.
Consider dimming the lights closer to the
time you're prepping to sleep. Opting for
warmer lighting may also help.
An organised space allows for relaxation,
since a lot of mess has the tendency to block
energy, often resulting in heightened mental
activity and stress. Turn to organisers for stowing away chords, jewellery, clothes,
makeup and more.
Penning down your positive experiences,
learnings, and realisations for the day,
for as less as 5-10 minutes can help you get
your thoughts together before bed; such
mindfulness facilitates sound sleep.
Subtle, soothing fragrances such as sea
breeze, lavender, vanilla, rosemary, and
jasmine can help minimise mental hyperactivity and ease the day's stress. Light a candle diffuser or add potpourri a few hours before hitting the bed for smooth sleep.
Why not set up a herbal tea station in your
room for a soothing night-time drink?
Swap the caffeine with warm milk or a
herbal decaffeinated tea for a relaxing
cuppa at the end of a long day and catch
up on your favourite read.
