How to Achieve A Restful Nights Sleep

Sleep plays an enormous role in staying healthy and your general well-being overall throughout your entire life. Quality sleep supports healthy brain function, benefits your heart, weight, mind and more. Sleep deprivation affects so much more than just those unsightly under-eye circles, ongoing sleep deficiency can put you at risk for chronic health issues, added stress, and your ability to think clearly and make logical decisions. In today’s day and age with technology available 24/7 and workloads that seem unmanageable to get done during your daily work week, people tend to push off getting a full nights rest to try and accomplish all of their daily tasks. Below are a few ways I like to unwind and make sure I’m getting enough sleep to fully function and stay healthy each day.

Baloo • Stonewashed Linen Sheet Set .:. I have wanted to upgrade to linen sheets for a VERY long time. These truly are casual luxury at its finest. The natural fibers help regulate sleeping temperatures in both warm & cool climates. They’re incredibly soft and get even cozier each wash. These have been my one of my favorite finds in a while! //

Coop • The Original Pillow .:. Made from a blend of memory foam + microfiber, it also comes with an extra 1/2 lb of filling to adjust to your liking. It’s breathable, adjustable, hypoallergenic, super supportive, washable and designed to assist with spinal alignment to help you sleep comfortably without pain. //

Bedgear • Cosmo Performance Pillow .:. The best of both worlds – soft on one side, firm on the other! The pillow cover features a unique Ver-Tex cooling technology to help reduce sweating & overheating. A good quality pillow is just as important as a supportive bed and this one doesn’t disappoint. //

Under the Canopy • Two-Tone Textured Organic Throw .:. Aesthetically I love the look of a soft throw casually thrown across the foot of the bed. It just adds another layer of color & texture. This throw is made of 100% organic cotton and is just the right weight for summertime when you’re looking for coverage versus warmth. //

SleepPhones • Wireless Headphones .:. Bed-friendly & cord free, these headphones are ideal for sleep, yoga or leisure. If you like listening to music to fall asleep, these are for you. They’re comfortable, hold a charge for up to 24 hours and you won’t get tangled up in them should you fall asleep. //

Bono Wellness • BonoSleep Device .:. A handheld sleep aid device designed to help with anxiety & insomnia by using electrotherapy stimulation. Micro-currant waves pulse to stimulate neurotransmitters to regulate your mood & promote sleep. After several uses it’s meant to help you fall asleep faster, easier & at the same time each night. //

8 Sheep Organics • “Unwind” Pillow Mist .:. Handmade in small batches, this mist is infused with lavender, bergamot, chamomile and vanilla essential oils to help calm an anxious mind and ease tension. A few spritz’ of this on your bed will help you doze off into a peaceful nights rest. //

YogaSleep • Dohm Nova Sound Machine & Night Light .:. A range of soothing sounds + an adjustable amber night light. A great option for kids who have trouble falling asleep, OR adults who don’t enjoy sleeping in silence or the pitch dark. //

SleepOn • Go2Sleep Device .:. An incredibly lightweight advanced sleep tracker with heart rate, HRV & blood oxygen that comfortably fits on your finger while you sleep. It tracks & stores your data in detailed charts to help you understand and address any sleep abnormalities & action to improve. //

Ereada • FIR PEMF Amethyst Mini Mat .:. I’ve used these types of heating mats for years and find them to be the best way to force myself to lay down, rest and just be. I prefer to use this at the end of the night because the high heat makes me really tired and helps me fall asleep faster. Far Infra-Red heat is amazing for pain relief in addition to helping your body fully relax and Amethyst helps promote healing and emits negative ions to reduce stress. It also is known to promote deep meditation and emotional balance. //

Dream Water • Sleep Gummies .:. Powder sticks, liquid shots & gummies containing melatonin, 5-HTP & GABA all designed to help you fall asleep. All effective, but my favorite are definitely the gummies. //
