TAKE SOME ME-TIME

Prior to sleeping, if you’re able to run a bath then indulge in a quick 10-minute soak before heading to bed. Studies show that if you raise your temperature a degree or two with a bath, the steeper drop when it comes to going to bed will help you sleep deeper more quickly.

A STRETCH A DAY

Yogi’s will tell you that the practice is a time-honoured way to unwind. It helps with your breathing, and prepares you both physically and mentally ahead of the next day. If you’re new to the art, try a beginner’s guide online or get down to your nearest class – you’ll be sleeping deeper in no time.

BREATHE EASY

The latest app the Instagram crowd love, Headspace encourages you to be more mindful of your breathing. Offering meditation guides you can do in just a few minutes, it’s the easiest way to calm yourself before bedtime…

GO DEVICE FREE

…But wellness guru Karen Cummings-Palmer recommends going phone-free an hour before getting some shut eye. The light your device emits stimulates your brain and can keep it over-stimulated while you snooze – so save some zzz’s and resist temptation by using the time to dive into the book you’ve been meaning to read instead.

COMFORT IS KEY

Invest in stylish sleepwear that is breathable too. Our #brandtotrust Bodas creates capsule pieces that are cut from ultra-soft jersey cotton and silks – shop our favourites below.

COOL YOURSELF DOWN

And finally, invest in luxurious bedding that encourages a good night’s sleep. Penrose Products uses mindfully sourced alpaca wool in their duvets and pillows, which works to regulate your body temperature as you drift off – the duvet is so snug you might even find it hard to jump out of in the morning.
