Alternative Tips For A Good Night’s Sleep

Keep in mind that the bedroom is a place for romance and relaxation.

  • Use Lavender essential oil. Sprinkle a few drops on a piece of tissue and put it under your pillow, make your own room spray by mixing it with water, or use an aromatherapy diffuser.
  • Use organic cotton sheets and make sure to have a comfortable and inviting bed.
  • The bed should be solid and stable.
  • Avoid the color red. Soothing pale colors are appropriate.
  • No plants. Plants can drain the room of auspicious vibrations.
  • The bedroom shouldn’t be too warm but you shouldn’t be freezing as well. Try to keep the temperature around 65F or 19C.
  • Try Valerian, Chamomile or Lemon Balm Tea.
  • Clear the air. Don’t go to bed in the middle of an argument.
  • Clear the clutter. The bedroom should be a calm and relaxing environment.
  • Don’t work or watch TV in the bedroom.  Too many books can also be to stimulating.
  • Clocks and phones should be kept away from the bed as they provide too much electromagnetic stimulation.
  • Be in the present. Don’t worry about the past or future.
