Getting a good night's sleep.

How do you sleep? Relaxed, and deep sleep? Or a fragmented, troubled sleep? However you get your beauty sleep, make sure you do at least manage to rest a few hours. Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. While you are sleeping , your body, also it's " covering", your skin, gets rid of toxins and renews itself, besides a whole lot of other neurological actions. Here are a few tips to make your slumber worthwhile:

  1. Your bed is for sleeping or sex. Watching T.V. , studying, eating or doing anything else that should be done elsewhere, is just sabotaging a restful night. Of course read a few lines before going to sleep, but not the annual fiscal report!!
  2. Switch of electronic gadgets 30 minutes before going to sleep. The light emitted form Ipads, Iphone etc, are not conducive to a soothing sleep. Use a Kindle if you must.
  3. Keep the same waking up and bedtime hours. Don't be extreme as it wreaks havoc with your body and mind. 
  4. Do exercise regularly. Getting your body going, kicking off steam, is the best way to combat anxiety and depression, which cause uneasy sleeping patterns.

Bedside table suggestions

Keep your surroundings calm and organised, clutter is not helpful at all. 

Put your jewellery in a pretty tray so you know exactly where it is in the morning.

Use a pillow spray to help relax, the scents are so pleasant.

A night mask is super effective, and you have the added benefit of waking up with really hydrated skin, but don't wait for a special occasion, use tonight!

Lip balm is the last thing I put on before I switch of the light and I use the excess on my cuticles.

Keep a notebook on hand for those last minute ideas and reminders. 

Sleep Well!
