Words: Sue Ryder
As we welcome the New Year, many of us are looking to make small lifestyle changes, which will have a positive impact on our day to day lives. Good sleep is often the root of good wellbeing, so changing your bedtime habits could actually set your year off to the best start. Here are some tips to get your sleep off to a great start this year.
SET UP THE SENSES FOR BEDTIME
Unwinding from a busy day is key for optimum sleep and what better way than with the relaxing scents of essential oils? You don’t need to worry about fancy lights or any candles staying lit if you accidentally drop-off earlier than expected with an aroma diffuser either, simply plug it in, add your essential oil of choice and drift off. The Sue Ryder Aroma Diffuser also has relaxing colour changing lights which will be a welcome addition to any bedroom routine, especially for those who spend their days in front of a computer screen.

SWITCH YOUR BEDDING FOR A MORE COMFORTABLE SLUMBER
Switching to a new duvet set will do so much more than just give your bedroom a stylish touch, if you choose to switch to bamboo bedding, your body and the planet will thank you too. This type of bedding is totally sustainable and feels so soft to the touch too. The special viscose fibres are a natural solution to keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, meaning you don’t need to worry about changing your bedding over with the seasons – so it’s not only good for the planet, but it’s good for your pocket too!
For those who suffer from allergies, bamboo bedding is hypoallergenic and is naturally antibacterial, meaning that it won’t irritate your skin and parasites such as dust mites and bed bugs can’t call it home.

CREATE AN INSTA WORTHY CHILL-OUT ZONE
You just can’t beat the feeling of stepping foot in a luxurious hotel room, knowing that you’re going to have a great sleep in the perfectly made bed, can you? Adding some stylish cushions and throws can take even the most simple of bedspreads from high street to high end, but without the extra cost! If you already have some cushions then you don’t even have to buy new, as a simple and low-cost option is to switch the cover over. Neutral tones will not only make your bedroom look like it’s straight from a Pinterest board, but it will calm your mood, ready to unwind for a good night’s sleep. And if you want to complete the look, grab a matching throw – which will also help to keep the chill off during those colder, crisp nights.
