Although sometimes hard to do, winding down before sleep can be just as important as sleep itself. Getting a good amount of rest the night before is key, so our friends from eve Sleep have given us a list of simple techniques to try:



 

A bit of (sleep) mood lighting…

Dimming the lights gradually a few hours before sleep can release melatonin, a hormone that helps induce sleep and restfulness. Sorry guys, but this includes your phone, so put it away if you can or use a blue light filter.


Stay away from the stimulants...


To reduce the amount of stimulation your body experiences, avoiding substances that typically give you buzz such as caffeine, sugar, nicotine and alcohol three hours before bedtime is advised.


Get moving…


Whether it’s a good old fashioned jog or just a simple 30-minute brisk walk, exercising during the day is a great way to de-stress and use up any excess energy. This can also help you to drift off more peacefully once your head hits the pillow. 
If you’re an evening exerciser, avoid exercising too late in the evening, as the adrenaline can make it harder to fall asleep and lead to disrupted sleep.  


Find the right tools...

Getting the perfect start in the morning all starts from the night before. Naturally, we think sleeping on the right mattress helps you get a restful night, and an even better morning too - Brilliant.


Keep a journal...

Writing down your thoughts and feelings allows you to offload and release stressful thoughts from your mind and onto paper, relaxing you inside and out. Journaling is also hugely beneficial to your mental health, enabling you to keep track of your thoughts and feelings, and leaving you with a clearer mind for a great night’s sleep.

So, get comfortable on your perfect mattress and scribe away.
