6 tricks to help you fall asleep at night

 

1 - Keep your bedroom cool and dark - the National Sleep Foundation recommends temperatures between 60 and 67F.


2 - Warm up your hands and feet - A Swiss study published in Nature says warm extremities are the best predictor of rapid sleep onset. What’s a good way to do this? - Use a flaxseed heat wrap!


3 - Listen to music with a slow rhythm of 60-80 beats per minute - Wondering what 60 bmp sounds like? Try this soundtrack when falling asleep. 


4 - Try progressive muscle relaxation - This technique for stress relief has you slowly tense, and then relax each muscle in your body. Start with your head and see if you can make it to your feet without falling asleep. For gentle guidance, try listening to this video.


5 - Scent your room with lavender - Lavender relaxes nerves, lowers your blood pressure and decreases anxiety. Our aromatherapy heart pillows can be filled with lavender for a relaxing nighttime scent.


6 - Use the right pillow for your body’s needs - If you sleep on your side, make sure your pillow provides enough support for your shoulder, neck and head. Need help finding a better pillow? We're here to help! Send a message to claire@comfycomfy.com
