Cayla Zelanis

Do you crave a more restful night’s sleep? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. According to the Sleep Foundation, more than one-third of U.S. adults sleep less than seven hours per night, on average. From daily stress to changing sleep patterns that come with age, it’s a common struggle as there are many factors that can impact your sleep quality.1

However, there is hope for catching more zzz’s. From refreshing your nightly routines to making the switch to organic bedding, there are simple changes you can make that have a big impact. Uncover the secret to a night of uninterrupted rest with these six essential sleeping tips and learn how to get better sleep:

Nurture Your Sleep Ritual

A nightly routine encourages your body and mind to surrender the stress of the day, and anticipate the calm approach of sleep. Begin with a consistent bedtime. You can also prepare for bed with a warm bath, then wrap up in a luxuriously soft bath towel or the cozy embrace of an organic bath robe. Savor this moment of comfort by meditating, reading a good book, or relaxing with light music—soothing activities that will help you unwind and welcome sleep.


Release Tension with Yoga 

Unwind and rejuvenate with a blissful yoga routine that will leave you well-rested and stress-free. Research shows that over 55% of yoga practitioners report improved sleep and over 85% report reduced stress.2 Our friends at YogaWorks offer a variety of styles to help you say goodbye to sleepless nights and tired groggy mornings. Here are a few of the best types of yoga for restful sleep: 

  • Restorative Yoga - This is your opportunity to melt into long-held, passive poses, often supported by props.
  • Yoga Nidra - Known as yogic sleep—Yoga Nidra is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that elicits total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
  • Yin Yoga - In these nourishing classes you’ll hold poses for several minutes to gently open and rehabilitate your body, leaving you feeling at ease in stillness.

Even a short, 15-minute practice can make a difference in the quality of your sleep.

Simplify Your Space

To help your mind unwind, remove clutter from your bedroom, including laundry piles, work bags or anything that reminds you of your never-ending to-do list. Only keep one or two items, like a journal or glass of water, on your nightstand. A few hours before bed, look around the room and imagine waking up to what you see, and clean accordingly. Foster a tranquil environment conducive to unwinding by minimizing visual clutter in your bedroom. This includes removing lingering reminders of daily tasks, like laundry piles or work bags. Limit your nightstand to one or two essential items, such as a journal or water glass.

Darkness for Deeper Rest

Light is the most powerful signal to your body that it’s time to wind down. Managing light exposure helps fine-tune your circadian rhythm—your body’s innate sleep-wake cycle–and that begins with screens. The blue light from screens can deceive your brain into thinking it’s still daylight, so set aside your electronics an hour before bed, and dim the lights to prepare your body for sleep. 

These sleeping tips, including the addition of Coyuchi organic bedding, are the secret to your best rest yet. Wishing you a good night’s sleep tonight, and every night.
