Winter has come which means shorter days and longer nights. It also means pyjamas on earlier and curled with a cup of tea and Netflix by 8pm. We don’t know about you, but here at Wanderluxe we love our winter wind down routines and count down to it the moment we wake up in the morning!
A good night’s sleep has countless benefits on our mind and body so we try our best to get our 8 hours and make it as enjoyable as possible. We know with today’s busy schedules, winding down can be an effort for some, which is why we’ve included our best tips for winding down during the winter months.
TAKING A WARM BATH/SHOWER
Not only does sinking into a warm bath instantly warm you up, but it also has multiple benefits on your muscles as well as calming the nervous system and minimising anxiety and stress. After a busy days work, anything to alleviate anxiety and stress sounds good, right? We recommend adding L’Occitane Almond Milky Bath to soften your skin and keep you smelling fresh so you come out as if you’ve spent the day at a spa.
If a bath isn’t your idea of relaxing, a warm shower is just as good.
SLIPPING INTO WANDERLUXE SLEEPWEAR
We may be bias, but slipping into our sleepwear is the ultimate way to relax! Made with our signature fabric that gets softer with each wash, you’ll be feeling like a Queen as you wind down ready for bed! During winter, we suggest our Long Pyjama Sets to keep you covered and warm, and our Nightshirts paired with your favourite bed socks and slippers to keep you cozy under a blanket with your favourite book!
SETTING YOUR ROOM UP TO BE A SLEEP SANCTUARY
Why not transform your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary this winter? The power of candles and essential oils do wonders at calming you down and relaxing you ready for a deep slumber! Scents such as lavender are known for getting you to sleep quicker and also improving your quality of rest!
Try the This Works Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle before you go to bed to get your bedroom feeling like a sleep sanctuary. Sounds relaxing already!
FIND YOURSELF A GOOD BOOK TO GET LOST IN
Books have the ability of transferring you to another world, maybe even a more relaxing one! Finding a good book can calm your mind and distract you from the craziness our lives tend to be! We suggest replacing scrolling on your phone with a good book this winter to get you into a dreamy state before nodding off!
Try Honeybee, a profoundly moving novel filled with vivid, complex characters learning to discover who they are.
