SLEEP RITUALS


Set a consistent bedtime and stick to it religiously. Establishing a calming pre-sleep ritual, signals to your body that it's time to relax and wind down.

Whether it's sipping on a cup of herbal tea (my favourites are peppermint, camomile and nettle), doing a gentle yoga flow, or listening to calming music.

Another thing I like to add is a cream or a balm with essential oils. A specific smell of lavender already signals my body that it’s time to sleep. (My favourite - SPA CEYLON SLEEP Body Milk)

 

EVENING JOURNALING/VISUALISATION

Before going to bed, spend 5 minutes writing down or visualising how you want your morning to go. Having a cute little journal really helped me get into it. I have it sitting pretty on my nightstand, almost inviting me in.

Make a list of things you want to achieve and imagine yourself waking up refreshed with a purpose.

This mental rehearsal not only sets a positive intention but also primes your brain for action.

BLOCK BLUE LIGHT

Wear Blue Light Blocking Glasses starting at 5 pm! Trust me, it’s a game changer. Reducing exposure to blue light from screens will drastically improve your sleep quality because of melatonin production

 

MORNING REWARDS


Have something to look forward to every morning. Treat yourself!

It could be a special coffee, delicious breakfast, a few minutes of your favourite hobby.

Associating mornings with a treat really works to boost the mood and keep the good habit going!

EMBRACE NATURAL LIGHT

Open your curtains or blinds as soon as you wake up to let natural light flood into your space.

Sunlight helps regulate the circadian rhythm, making it easier to wake up feeling refreshed and energized.
