This World Sleep Day, we want all of our Female Family to prioritise their sleep. Whether you’re overtired from your daily walks, feel a little bit anxious or you just can’t quite snooze off, we have all the tips you need for a healthy sleep routine. It’s time you got some well deserved shut-eye.
We’re all for keeping up with current affairs but if you’re watching the news so much to a point where it’s affecting your sleep and heightening your anxiety, it’s time to reduce your watch time. Put your Netflix and Now TV subscriptions to good use and get something lighthearted on!
You know what they say, girls: eat good, feel good. Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is key for getting enough shut-eye if you’re struggling to sleep at night, but remember to not eat during late hours. This can cause some indigestion and make it hard to sleep.Though, we’re all guilty of a midnight snack here and there, we’ll admit!
When we train our bodies to wind down before bed, it’s a little bit like being on auto-pilot. Here are a few things you can do to wind down before bed:
Have a bath
Read a book
Listen to music
Sometimes, one of the reasons we might have trouble sleeping is because there’s so many worries and negative thoughts swirling around in our brains that it can cause us to wake frequently during the night or not drift off at all.
Get an old journal and write down whatever is on your mind. This will stop any intrusive thoughts from building up in your head so they’re out of the way and on paper.
Whether you’re furloughed, working from home or somewhere in between, I think we can all agree that we’ve probably all overslept a little over the past 12 months. Not having anything particular to wake up for can cause you to sleep later during the day and lie awake at night, so try and stick to a healthy sleeping routine (your body and mind will thank you!).
And by that we mean no TikTok and no late night Instagram scrolling. If the temptation to have a peak on social media during late hours is making it hard for you to sleep, turn your phone upside down or turn it off completely. This will help you ignore the temptation.
We all love a good old nap, right? With more of us spending more time at home, napping has basically become our frequent pastime. However, it’s important that you don’t nap too much as this can totally mess up your sleeping routine. Try taking a 20-30 minute power nap for a quick reboot.
And by exercise, we don’t mean full body combat. This is where your daily walk comes in, girls. Ensuring you get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day can improve your sleep and mood levels. Plus, it gives you an excuse to hit the park in one of those new loungewear sets you’ve been dying to wear.
Remember, if the current climate is heightening your anxiety and making it hard to sleep, you can always get in touch with your GP. Just like us, they’re here for you during these challenging times. You’re not alone, girls.
Combine these healthy sleeping habits with the ultimate comfort combo with something from our dreamy Sleep Collection. Whether you want to snuggle down in something soft and silky or be bundled up in waffle luxuries, we've got you.
