15th March is World Sleep Day, so why not celebrate by refreshing your evening routine? These three simple-yet-effective tips will help improve your slumber night after night. Plus, talk to our clever new Facebook Messenger Chatbot for more personalised sleep tips.
1. Create a sleep sanctuary
Establishing a calming environment is key to helping you drift off. Start with serene white bed linen. The colour is instantly relaxing and, as a result, will set the scene for a peaceful slumber. You should also ensure your mattress and pillow are offering you the right level of support; if you’re waking up with aches and pains, it’s probably time for a new one. Explore our buying guides to discover which one is right for you.
2. Sleep in style
Finding the right nightwear is key to a good night’s rest. By changing into luxurious pyjamas, or a nightie, you can signal to your brain it’s time to switch off. Opt for breathable fabrics that feel super-soft against the skin, such as pure silk, or cotton. Then, once you’ve changed for the evening, put your phone away. Screens emit blue light which prevents the brain from producing melatonin, a key facilitator and regulator of sleep-wake cycles.
3. Embrace a routine
It’s not always easy to wind down at the end of a busy day, which is why our Sleep Collection has been specially designed to aid every step of your bedtime ritual. From a candle and diffuser for when you dim the lights to our soothing bath oil and relaxing pillow mist, each of the seven products has been expertly blended by Britain’s finest master perfumers, using six peace-inducing essential oils to help promote sleep.
