How to sleep better...naturally.

Sleep is essential for our health and well being.  But, often we struggle to get the required amount to restore our bodies and minds. Various factors come into play, however some basic practices can make a great difference if we are diligent to implement them.

Setting the stage for a good night's sleep begins in the afternoon. Avoiding stimulants such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine can be helpful.  Did you know caffeine can linger in your system for 8 hours or more? Be a student of your body! I've learned my caffeine cutoff time is 4 pm. That includes chocolate...

Having a winding-down routine an hour or so before bedtime is important in making the transition to sleep.  Keep conversation and entertainment relaxing. This is probably not the best time to discuss topics that are stressful. Reading, meditation, and prayer are great ways to quiet the mind at the end of the day. 

If possible, bedtimes should stay consistent in rooms that are quiet, dark, and slightly cool.  Lavender is a wonderful addition for our bedrooms at night.  Make sure its the real deal. Use lavender essential oil (see our Linen Spray) or dried lavender flowers (see Sachets).   Breathe them in deeply several times.  Studies prove lavender reduces anxiety, helps sleep come quicker and improves it's quality...naturally.  

Wishing you all a good night's sleep...
