I know we’re usually all about mornings here, but a great morning starts the night before. Compromising your nightly routine could capsize your entire following day. In addition to staying fit and eating right, quality sleep is extremely vital to our bodies overall health and mental stability. Our fast-paced lives sometimes trick us into thinking we can keep going when, in fact, what we really need is to rest and recharge our mind, body and soul. Here are a few nocturnal guidelines we put together—we’re pretty confident that a better morning is guaranteed.
It’s all about the wind down before a good night's sleep! Consider switching up your morning workouts with an evening sweat sesh every now and then, indulging in the deliciousness of our vanilla oats beforehand. Vanilla has calming properties starting with its unmistakable aroma that reduces stress and anxiety. You’ll be calm, super satisfied, ready to hit the pillow, and catch those necessary zzz’s.
One of the most productive steps for the day ahead is starting the night before. Your mind is already buzzing with everything you need to do tomorrow anyway so just write it down. Need more incentive? Writing a to-do list can actually be a stress reliever by visualizing all that needs to be done the following day. It works. It's science. Just ask Mo Seetubtim, founder of the sought-after Happiness Planner. Promoting the tagline, Mastering Happiness & Success—One Day At A Time, the happiness activist is committed to her mission of spreading joy and fulfillment through productivity planners, apps, workshops, and resources.
When you wake up, the first thing you should reach for is—no, not your phone—WATER. What better way to do that than having your nightstand prepared. Hydrte’s sleek and simple water bottle design allows you to lie it atop your latest book (which you should be reading instead of Netflix-ing) and ready to go in the morning. It’s flask-like, modern design reads more trendy-health-conscious than Hi-I’m-day-buzzed. This water bottle also gives back: For every order of a Hydrte bottle, seven months of clean drinking water will be provided to help make a difference in the world’s water crisis. Now that’s worth raising a glass of H2O!
When it comes to coziness, people tend to invest in their mattress and bedding, but they should also be splurging on their sleepwear. Loungewear company Lunya believes this dreamy notion whole-heartedly! The pj makers’ stylish sleep sets in a range of luxe fabrics help you get through the sweatiest or chilliest night (depending on the company you keep). Additionally, they offer the silkiest organic Pima sleep masks to match along with your pajamas, ensuring your rest goes uninterrupted (again, depending on the company you keep).
