Fall Back In Love With Sleep This Sleeptember


The Hibernation season is among us! Deep shades of amber and rustic reds decorate the paths, the children return to their classrooms and, whilst we will miss those long summer’s nights, sleep lovers can rejoice as Sleeptember is here!

Why September is Great For Sleep

Hello Sleeptember

  • Its cool but not cold. This allows us to keep our windows open and ventilate our bedrooms to achieve a good sleeping climate. 
  • The nights begin to draw in. Our bodies are  programmed to sleep when its dark. So, as its becomes darker quicker we become drowsier and find easier to wind down and relax on an evening. 
  • Allergy sufferers can sleep without feeling congested. Pollen levels in the air have dropped, and whilst flu season is approaching, September allows us to breathe a little easier at night. 

So why not dedicate this September to sleep! It is the perfect time to try and kick some old habits and concentrate on sleeping better. So heres a few handy tips on how to improve your sleep this Autumn. 

Make Sure Your Mattress is Still Supportive and Comfortable

If you were lucky enough to escape to the sun this summer, you may have noticed a change in your sleep cycle. If you found you were getting a better night’s sleep than you do at home, this may mean its time to replace your old mattress. Mattresses that are no longer supportive or comfortable, can dramatically effect the quality of our sleep and ultimately how we go about our day to day lives. Consider investing in a great night’s sleep this September. 

Switch To Your Winter Duvet

Take Time to Unwind

Rest and Relax - bedtime rituals sleeptember

Nothing makes for a better nights sleep than a good sleeping ritual. September is the perfect time to put it into practice. Snuggle up with a good book on the couch, or take time out before you go to sleep to run a relaxing hot bath. Try to steer clear of gadgets and gizmos an hour before bedtime, as the light emitted from these devices play havoc with our internal body clocks!

Decide On Your Bedtime and Stick to it

Life has a way of, well, getting in the way. But we should aim to go to be and wake up at roughly the same time every day. This will establish a good sleeping routine – which in turn will lead to a better nights kip.
