We spend half our lives in bed, so why neglect the night when it comes to bringing beautiful, well-made products into our lives? In today’s fast paced world it’s more important than ever to make sure we are taking the time to properly wind down, relax and recharge our brains in order to tackle the busy waking hours.
Things you can do to promote a good night’s sleep include ditching screens and electronics at least an hour before bed, trying to wake at the same time every morning to help regulate your body clock, and making sure the days worries and to-do lists are mentally filed away before hitting the hay. We think it’s also incredibly important to make sure your bedroom is a cosy, clean and uncluttered space that your brain can associate with relaxation (that means no checking emails in bed!) full of quality bedding and pyjamas.
This article contains the most sustainable and long lasting products we’ve found to help promote a cosy, comfortable bedtime. Whether that is super soft and sustainable sleepwear, or items to making your bedroom a cosy nest, you won’t be able to wait to crawl into bed.
