How do you calm down once you get into bed? Recently I was queued The funny podcast While wrapped in sweetheart Brooklinen Papers. But I’m always curious what other people do to slow their minds at night. Here are four additional tips basic foodstuffs I swear to a good night’s sleep…
1. Start with fresh leaves. Sometimes I’ll take a shower in the evening just because there’s nothing better than shaved legs and clean sheets, don’t you think? Brooklyn Classic Percale Sheets Very crisp (it feels like the cool side of a pillow), and buttery smooth Luxurious sateen sheets Getting softer after every wash. (Also no Mottled cashmere bedding Make the ultimate holiday gift?)
2. Watching something light and funny. At the end of the day, I need a way to turn off my brain. So I love to read Novels or Journal articles that make me laugh. “Every time I fall asleep, I think, ‘Tonight is the night I’m going to read my book!'” Filmmaker (and former CoJ editor) Stella Blackmon Tell us. But then I ended up watching fan edits of Gilmore Girls On YouTube until midnight.” To relax in the evening, prop yourself up against a pile of Fluffy pillows. They come in three versions — solid, medium, and plush — so you can find your perfect crush. (I recommend their best-selling mid-plush!)
3. Light a candle. In the winter, we set up a fragrance station in our bedroom (with the help of nine-year-old Anton), and the ritual of lighting a match reminds us to slow down and breathe. This candle It smells like eucalyptus and basil, which I love bullish candle For a burst of energy in the morning.
4. Take a hot shower. Barber Linda Rudin She says her bathroom is the only place she can totally adjust: “No magazines, no music, no phone.” Once you get out of the bathtub, warm yourself up in it These classic waffle robes. Made of 100% Turkish cotton, it is quick drying and highly absorbent. (They would also be perfect for visiting friends and family.)
