oh my gosh, how are y’all sleeping these days? with everything in the news — that i won’t even mention because you know what i mean — i have been having weird nightmares, waking up in the middle of the night way too often and just generally having a hard time falling asleep with my mind whirling with thoughts. so i’ve been trying really hard to remedy this — with a few tips i’ve read about recently that i thought i might share with you should this be the case with you, too.

first off, i’ve started sleeping with a fan on for the white noise, but also because i like my room kept cool so i can bury myself deep beneath my duvet covers. i also listen to a gentle waves soundtrack i found on Spotify. i couldn’t find one that plays long enough to help me fall asleep so i literally just added the ‘waves’ to this soundtrack over and over so i can listen on repeat. i know there are apps for this but the price adds up and this was essentially free with my spotify membership. what else? i wear an eye mask, my duvet & sheets are super soft, and i started taking Hum’s Beauty zzZz Sleep Aid before bed. i’ve banned the iphone in bed — books only, which i read with a small rechargeable book light and lots of candlelight. i’m hoping this new routine will settle my mind. and of course, last but not least design-wise, i’m keeping my bedroom as minimal, zen and simple as can be. here are some more soothing bedrooms that might inspire better sleep. here’s to lots of zzzzz’s.

  1. It’s okay to stop watching TV/news, or, choose what is read viewed by reading online. It made an amazing difference for me. I hope for others too.
