The perfect sleep sanctuary is an ode to the senses. Pay homage to your sight, sound, taste, scent and touch as you settle down for a good night’s sleep.
Rest your eyes by dimming the lights two hours before you go to bed, or using just candles to light the room. Bright, artificial light hinders the release of the sleep inducing hormones we need to drift off. On the other hand, a dimly lit room will signal to your body that you are preparing for sleep.
Our eyes are stimulated throughout the day by bright unnatural light and the blue light emitted by computers, tablets and phone screens. Give them a well deserved break before bedtime and feel the tension drain away.
