Recently my sleeping pattern has been all over the place. The first thing I tried in an attempt to get a more normal night’s sleep was to make my bedroom a nice place to relax in. So far it seems to have worked!
I usually read for a while to take my mind off things and to generally wind down. For me it really helps to dim the lights before I go to sleep and so I have fairy lights wrapped around my bed frame and often light a candle. At the moment I’m just using plain tea lights but different scents, such as lavender and chamomile, can really help you unwind. I also keep my diary close by my bed so I can jot down a plan of things I need to do the next day. This really helps to reduce any anxiety I’d have the next morning as I know I’m all organised for the day’s events.
I think it’s also really important to create a space that you feel happy in and find aesthetically pleasing. For me this means popping a few pretty things on my bedside table. Whether it’s a memento of a summer gone by, an old perfume bottle or a childhood favourite toy, they all make my room look nice and cosy!
