I’ve always been a sucker for a comfy/cozy/snuggly bed. I go for the pillow top mattress with foam added on top and another pillow top cushion on top of that (my boyfriend says I belong in The Princess and The Pea). What can I say? I love to be cozy! I noticed recently that with all the stresses of the day, it’s really important for me to fully relax before bed, which thankfully makes me sleep better! I’m really happy with how my bed is right now, and I just thought I would share my little “secrets” to a dreamy night’s rest!
1. Get down to the basics. And in my case, that would be the bed! I’m a huge fan of my all white space because I feel like it clears my head in the morning! I love waking up to such a fresh and bright space with minimal clutter!
2. Set the mood. I love using lavender oil on my pillows and sheets because it’s so relaxing. I use one drop on each pillow, and it’s awesome because you can’t really smell it in your room until you lay down in bed. Plus it makes my hair and PJs smell like lavender!
3. Keep your linens fresh! One of my all time favorite pieces of technology is my fabric shaver. This tiny little device basically shaves off all of the little balls (pilling) that can accumulate on sheets or blankets or shirts or pants and leaves them feeling good as new. Definitely worth the $8!
4. Put away the technology. We all know that research has proven it’s bad to use your phone or tv right before bed, and lately I’ve been able to vouch for that big time. I used to play solitaire on my phone every night before falling asleep (yes, I’m very exciting), but for the past few weeks I’ve stopped doing that and have more restful nights to show for it.
And there you have it! Nothing too extreme, but dang I’ve been sleeping well lately! What are your secrets for getting a restful night’s sleep?
