Sleep is one of those things that I look forward to all day, every day. That time, when you can just wind down, chill out and completely relax with ease until you drift off to dreamland. I guess everybody has good and bad nights of sleep and luckily for me, I can actually sleep quite well. I have a routine which works for me and going to bed at the same time every night is one of the first tips I would give. It trains your body in to knowing when it is time to shut down and slowly eases you in to sleep mode. During the winter is when I find it most difficult to wake up, the lack of daylight and the coldness makes me want to curl up and stay in bed all day. When I first heard of the Lumie Light (*) through my mum, I was very, very intrigued, she said it helps her sleep at night by slowly unwinding her mind and waking up in the morning has been so much easier with the gradual increase light. I have been trialling this for about two weeks now and although it is not winter at the moment, it has really helped in giving me more energy and making feel less sleepy when I gradually get out of bed. It’s amazing what a simple concept of light management can change the way you feel with sleep. 

Curtains and Blinds brand, Hillarys recently teamed up with Wellness expert Lauren Kita to put together her top ten tips for a better night’s sleep which you read about here. It is quite an interesting feature and I’d definitely put some of them to use.

    I normally work out before bed so I usually meditate and calm down. Also don't think about life really hard or you'll never sleep!

    What a helpful post! I haven't tried anything like that – it's usually pretty easy for me to get up with just a buzzer alarm. For getting a good nights sleep, I usually read a bit in bed.

    I love the idea of the Lumie light! I work out before bed when I can and urn off all social media and tv about 30 minutes before I go to sleep. I find this really helps me.
