Hey there, sleepyheads! As the leaves turn golden and the temperature drops, it's time to get cosy and snuggle up for a good night's sleep. But if you're finding it hard to get comfortable this autumn, don't worry - we've got some cheeky hacks to help you sleep like a baby.
1. Get Hot and Heavy with Your Bedding
When it comes to bedding, it's time to get hot and heavy this season. Swap out your cool cotton sheets for some toasty Winkl French flax linen sheets, and add a Winkl down duvet. And don't forget to bring out the extra blankets (we have a great selection of weighted blankets on offer) and pillows - it's time to get cosy, baby!
2. Turn the Heat Down and the Heat Up
Who needs a partner when you've got the perfect bedroom temperature? It's time to turn down the heat (literally!) and aim for a cool 20 degrees Celsius. But if you're feeling chilly, go ahead and turn up the heat with some fuzzy socks some cute flannelette pjs.
3. Set the Mood with Some Aromatherapy
Want to make your bedroom smell as good as it feels? Try some aromatherapy with essential oils like lavender and chamomile. Not only do they smell amazing, but they'll help you relax and get in the mood for some serious snuggle time.
4. Get Cosy with Some Mood Lighting
Set the mood for some serious relaxation with some soft lighting in your bedroom. Add a cute lamp or some fairy lights for some extra cosiness. And don't forget to add some cute throw pillows and a fluffy rug to complete the look.
5. Establish a Bedtime Routine That Rocks
Nothing beats a good routine to get you in the mood for some serious sleep. Whether it's reading a book, taking a warm bath, or practicing some yoga, find something that helps you relax and stick to it. And why not add some soft music or white noise for some extra ambiance?
6. Say No to Technology in Bed
Who needs technology when you've got a warm bed and some good company? Say no to electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime to give your body a chance to wind down naturally. And if you absolutely need your phone, don't forget to put on your blue light-blocking glasses to minimize the disruption to your sleep.
7. Cut Back on the Booze and Caffeine
Sure, alcohol and caffeine may make for a good time, but they're not exactly sleep-friendly. Cut back on the booze and caffeine, especially in the hours leading up to bedtime. And if you're feeling thirsty, opt for some herbal tea or a warm cup of cocoa instead.
8. Get on a Regular Sleep Schedule
Nothing says sexy like a regular sleep schedule, am I right? Stick to a regular bedtime and wake-up time, even on the weekends, to keep your body's internal clock ticking. And don't forget to enjoy some lazy mornings in bed every now and then.
9. Get Sweaty with Some Exercise
Sweat is sexy, especially when it comes to exercise. Engage in some moderate exercise like jogging, walking, or yoga for at least 30 minutes a day. But don't forget to give yourself some time to cool down before hitting the hay.
10. Eat Some Sleepy-Time Snacks
Who says snacks can't be sexy? Nosh on some sleep-friendly foods like nuts, turkey, whole grains, and kiwi fruit to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality. And don't forget to indulge in a little late-night snack every now and then.
So there you have it, folks - some cheeky hacks to help you sleep comfortably in autumn.
