Our Secret to a Great Night's Sleep with Wallace Cotton
by Wallace Cotton
A great night’s sleep can make you feel refreshed and ready to take on the challenges of the day. Restful and restorative sleep is important for coping with the busyness of life plus there are many benefits for your health and wellbeing such as improved immunity, mood and memory.
For a great night’s sleep, create the perfect sleep sanctuary and experiment with relaxing bedtime rituals.
Sleep sanctuary checklist
- Purchase the best bed you can afford
- Make your bed with good quality sheets and keep them freshly laundered
- Choose the right weight duvet inner for the season
- Sleep on a comfy and supportive pillow
- Add an extra layer to pull up if the night cools down, a blanket or bedspread
- Adjust the atmosphere – a quiet, cool and darkened room
- Adopt relaxing bedtime rituals
Getting ready for bed
Bedtime rituals can help you unwind, ready for a great night’s sleep. Here are a few suggestions:
- Switch off your phone and TV to disconnect from the distractions and worries of the outside world
- Use table and bedside lamps for room lighting in the evening as they throw a softer muted glow
- Take a relaxing bath with essential oils and light fragrant candles
- Pop on your PJ’s and read a few pages of your favourite book or magazine with a soothing cup of tea
- Climb into fresh sheets and beautiful bedding and make yourself comfy
- When drowsy, switch off your bedside light and enjoy a restful sleep
On waking in the morning, air your bed for 30 minutes, then take the time to make your bed beautifully. A freshly made bed has a calming effect and it’s lovely to see at bedtime that evening.
