A Guide To: Getting Better Sleep

More of us are waking up to (excuse the pun!) the importance of sleep. 

Many factors influence the quality, duration and the easy with which we fall to sleep...so with that in mind, we look at ways to improve sleep quality. 

1. Prioritise Sleep Hygiene

Establishing a consistent sleep schedule is paramount for regulating your body's internal clock. Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Additionally, create a calming pre-sleep routine to signal to your body that it's time to wind down. This may include activities such as reading, gentle stretching, or taking a warm bath.

2. Create a Tranquil Sleep Environment

Craft a serene sleep sanctuary by minimising noise and light disruptions. Invest in blackout curtains or a white noise machine to block out external disturbances. Keep your bedroom cool and well-ventilated, as optimal temperature plays a crucial role in promoting sleep.

3. Harness the Power of Aromatherapy

Lavender has long been revered for its calming properties. Consider using a pillow spray infused with lavender essential oil to create a soothing atmosphere in your bedroom. Spritz a light mist onto your pillow and bedding before settling in for the night to enjoy its relaxing scent.

We have a gorgeous reed diffuser with lavender essential oils - made locally to us in a solar powered factory! This will help to make your bedroom a restful environment. 

4. Opt for Breathable Fabrics

Choosing the right sleepwear can make a significant difference in your comfort level throughout the night. Opt for breathable cotton pyjamas that allow for proper airflow, preventing overheating and promoting uninterrupted sleep.

All our pyjamas are made with breathable 100% cotton - they're lovely and soft and are great for all seasons. Not to mention the prints are just beautiful! 

5. Practice Mindfulness and Meditation

Incorporating mindfulness and meditation practices into your bedtime routine can help quiet the mind and alleviate stressors that may interfere with sleep. Spend a few minutes engaged in deep breathing exercises or guided meditation to promote relaxation and inner peace.

Or if you find you have a busy mind, take a few minutes to reflect and dump all the information out onto the page. Either a plain journal or one with prompts, like The Positive Planner, is really helpful to decompress. 

6. Invest in Soft Bedding

The quality of your bedding can profoundly impact your sleep experience. Invest in soft, cosy sheets and pillows that provide ample support for your head and neck. Choose bedding materials that feel luxurious against your skin, such as Egyptian cotton or bamboo-derived fabrics.

We have a collection of gorgeously soft cotton bedding - and it's in the sale too! 


By implementing these holistic strategies into your nightly routine, you can create an environment conducive to restorative sleep. From practising good sleep hygiene to incorporating calming rituals like aromatherapy and meditation, each step plays a vital role in enhancing your overall sleep quality. Prioritise self-care and make sleep a priority, and you'll awaken each morning feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to seize the day ahead.
