It goes without saying that getting a good night's sleep is important for our body and overall health. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, sleep deprivation can cause mental and physical problems, and can interfere with everyday life.
Getting enough sleep has numerous benefits such as reducing stress, improving overall mood, and reducing risks of serious health problems. That's why prioritizing sleep is important for our health.
If one of your goals for 2023 is to get more sleep and build a better bedtime routine, we've listed five tips to help you get a good night's sleep.
Tip #1: Drink Enough Water
One of the benefits of drinking water before bed is it keeps you hydrated throughout the night and helps detox your body and release toxins.
One thing to note though, drinking too much water before bed can interrupt your sleep cycle so it's best to drink water a few hours before sleep.
We recommend keeping water on the nightstand for when you need it, whether at night or when you wake up in the morning.
Our Bedside Water Carafe Set includes a bottle and glass that also doubles as a bottle cap — perfect to keep on your nightstand.
Tip #2: Give Yourself Time To Unwind
And we don't mean scrolling on Instagram!
We recommend creating a nightly routine that promotes relaxation to uplift your mood and help you get quality sleep. Whether that's reading a book or doing Yoga, let this be a time for yourself to unwind and relax before sleep.
Tip: use an essential oil diffuser for a calming effect. Check out our Slim Diffuser Bottle, perfect for those relaxed moments at home.
Tip #3: Drink Soothing Herbal Teas
There's something comforting and relaxing about drinking herbal teas. Especially ones that have a calming effect, like Chamomile tea for example.
According to Health Digest, drinking Chamomile teas induces feelings of sleepiness, therefore making you feel tired — which makes it an ideal beverage to drink before bed.
So curl up with a nice cup of tea and enjoy every sip!

Tip #4: Give Your Body Some TLC
Repeat after us: skincare is self-care.
Treating your body to a little TLC (tender loving care) not only helps promote self-care and relieve stress, but you're also giving your body the love and care it needs.
So don't rush through your skin and body care. Instead, relish every moment and make it a luxurious me-time by lighting a candle or even playing your favorite music.

Tip #5: Keep A Gratitude Journal
How we feel at the end of the day affects our sleep. When you're more relaxed and calm, the easier it is to fall asleep, which is why other people meditate before sleep as a relaxation technique.
Another thing you can add to your nightly routine is to keep a gratitude journal and spend 10-15 minutes before bed writing what you're grateful for that day. That way, you're reminded of the positive things before drifting off to dreamland.
