A bed-time ritual | 7 simple things that help restful sleep

Sleep, insomnia, sleep routines, homeopathy, natural solutions

All my days are pretty full-on. I’m sure yours are too. When I have a good sleep I feel ready for my day. 

As part of my new year goal to make more time for myself, I’ve been inspired to re-work my evening routine.

My bed-time ritual is something I really enjoy. When I make a small space for myself in the evening, I know I feel so much more relaxed and even peaceful.

Quiet time helps me prepare for sleep.

The key for me is to have a sequence of things I do before bed and to make it a routine.

7 simple things I do before bed

1. Take a shower and use my Neal’s Yard Beauty Sleep body butter with relaxing essential oils.
2. Make a cup of herbal tea (Pukka Relax is my current favourite).
3. Power off my phone (our sleep is affected by screen time in the evening).
4. Light candles (this helps my circadian rhythms).
5. Curl up under my quilt.
6. Read for a while, or pick up my knitting or sewing.
7. Reflect on my day and write 3 things in my gratitude journal.

It just takes half an hour and it makes such a difference.

A bed-time routine that feels more like a ritual.

Routine or ritual?

A routine is simply a series of steps or actions that are useful and practical.

A ritual is something that feels more special.

  • The scent of essential oils.
  • The flickering light of a candle.
  • The infusion of herbs in a cup of tea.

It creates a chance to be more mindful. It encourages gratitude.

Simple things to help restful sleep

These are all simple things that anyone can enjoy.

Creating a small space in the evening is something to look forward to before sleep.

I’ve been seeing Tracy on and off for over 5 years. I always leave my appointments (both in person or remotely) feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world! She’s helped not just me but my kids as well. I’m always recommending her to friends and family who have been struggling with an ailment that hasn’t been resolved in the general medicinal way. She incorporates not just homeopathy but loads of other holistic ways of living into her life and shares them with others – taking the burden of research off my shoulders.
