Sleep Hygiene 101: Healthy Habits for Optimal Sleep

Quality sleep is the cornerstone of wellbeing. To improve sleep quality, understanding and implementing healthy sleep habits, known as sleep hygiene is crucial. In this post, we have explored the fundamental principles of sleep hygiene, offering valuable insights and highlighting the role of anatomē sleep oils in promoting restful sleep. 

It may be easier than you think to improve your nighttime routine and reap the benefits of a restful night’s sleep. Whether you’re struggling with occasional sleeplessness or battling chronic insomnia, building healthy habits can help you achieve optimal sleep quality.

Consistent Sleep Schedule

Consistency in your sleep schedule is key. You should try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, reinforcing your body's natural sleep-wake cycle. The sleep oils we supply at anatomē are specially formulated for stressed or restless minds, and can help in establishing these all-important, regular sleep patterns.

Comfortable Sleep Environment

Optimise your bedroom’s interior design for sleep. Ensure your mattress and pillows provide enough support and keep the room at a comfortable, cool temperature. You can darken the room with curtains too and use anatomē’s knowledge of botanical formulations to select sleep-enhancing products that enhance relaxation.

Limit Exposure to Screens

The blue light from mobile phones, tablets and laptop screens can disrupt your sleep patterns. Ideally, minimise screen time at least an hour before you go to bed and engage in calming activities instead. The botanical formulations infused into anatomē’s sleep oils support relaxation during this crucial pre-sleep period.

Mind Your Diet

Caffeine and alcohol can interfere with sleep. Limiting your consumption, especially before bedtime, can help to improve your sleep quality. So, swap your evening drink for something more calming. Our teams’ expertise in sleep-inducing formulations can guide you in selecting the right products to support your sleep goals. 

Regular Physical Activity

Regular exercise promotes better sleep, it can help you fall asleep more quickly and enjoy deeper sleep. However, you should finish your workouts at least a few hours before bedtime to avoid overstimulation. Complement your exercise routine with anatomē’s botanical sleep oils formulated to calm the restless mind for the most effective results. 

Wind Down Before Bed

Establish a calming bedtime routine that signals to your body it's time to sleep. You can use a variety of products, such as the sleep oils, candles and pillow sprays we supply at anatomē. These are all designed to contain the best ingredients for promoting tranquillity, setting the stage for a peaceful night's sleep.

Manage Stress

Stress and anxiety can significantly impact your sleep. Incorporate relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises or meditation into your bedtime routine. You can use the anatomē’s sleep oils during your relaxation routine. They are designed to alleviate stress, calm your mind and encourage relaxation.
