By now we know: sleep is, like, a big deal in our wellness plan. Here are my two best steps for improving your sleep hygiene:
- Give yourself a nighttime ritual that you enjoy. If washing your face feels like a pain: find a cleanser that smells great or feels good. I LOVE the Osmosis Lift Away. At the studio it is known as Momma’s Little Helper because it is so easy to use and leaves your skin feeling clean + hydrated. You just smoodge it on and the day melts away. You can rinse with water or wipe it off. And if you have more time, it is a good massage medium to start to warm your skin. Makes washing up a dream. And as soon as that product hits my face, my body knows it is headed for bed and literally starts to do a little happy dance!
- Stop checking email, the news or your socials before easing into bed. Set a hard line to stop at 8:30pm. I know, I know: there are projects and events in your life that will demand you be responsive at all hours. And, yet, this can become a habit so that we start checking in even when we don’t really need to.
I hope these work for you and I’d love to hear back about what does work to help you drift of to zzzzzzzzzz-land. Sweet dreams!
I LOVE the Relax & Unwind Elixir and have it in the studio as a pre-facial treat; but no joke, don’t take it if you need to stay up! I recommend prior to a nap or your evening’s sleep … it’s that good. Click here to grab a bottle or swing by the studio.
