Recharge and reset your sleep
Today is the day to prioritise your bedtime rituals to set you up for a good night's sleep. Good sleep is the cornerstone of a healthy, rested mind and body. And taking the time to allow yourself to unwind at the end of the day is not only likely to help you sleep better, but you can use it as an opportunity to nourish and restore your skin. Here are 5 ways you can reclaim your evening and enjoy World Sleep Day today:
1. ENJOY A RELAXING SALT BATH
Let your muscles relax as you soak in the uniquely-high mineral content of the Himalayan Pink Salts, Dead Sea Salts and French Pink Clay in the Bath Salts (£20). Take three deep breaths as you restore your body and quieten your mind.
2. NOURISH YOUR SKIN WITH PLANTS
Feed your skin with the certified-organic, plant based ingredients in our award-winning Organic Body Oil (£28.50). Apply to slightly damp skin after your bath to lock in moisture, working in long flowing strokes towards your heart to boost circulation. The oil absorbs into your skin immediately and provides deep hydration, without leaving a greasy residue.
3. SEND LOVE WITH THE ROSE QUARTZ GUA SHA
Let go of trapped energies and emotions and embrace unconditional love with the Rose Quartz Gua Sha (£40), using the 5-Step BY SARAH™ Technique. Best used alongside the Organic Facial Oil (£32) to release any tension held in your facial muscles and to promote the skin's detoxification and lymphatic drainage at the end of the day.
4. TRY A PRE-SLEEP BREATH TECHNIQUE
If your mind is racing with thoughts and a growing to-do list, a pre-sleep breathing technique can help to ease your mind. Like with yoga and mindfulness, when your mind is focused on one task alone, it becomes quiet and brings you fully to the present moment. Take a look at Headspace or the Calm app, or The Breath Guy's techniques.
5. PRACTISE GRATITUDE FOR YOUR DAY
Nothing sets you up for a good night's sleep quite like expressing gratitude for all the little things that made your day joyful. Writing down just three things, no matter how small, will fill your heart with joy and make you smile before you drift off into a deep, restorative slumber.
