AD | How I Achieve A Good Night's Sleep That's Out of This World in Collaboration With TEMPUR *

-This post is in conjunction with TEMPUR® but all thoughts are my own-

In today's post, I'm going to be talking about things that help me to achieve a good night's sleep that's "out of this world". Some of the things I've been doing or using for years and some are pretty new in my bedtime routine. I really do think that I've finally cracked the case when it comes to sleeping through the night. So if you're someone who struggles with their sleep, hopefully, this post might be useful for you!

As this post is in collaboration with TEMPUR® I've also got a discount code for TEMPUR®'s website which is TEMPUR105 which can be used between the 15th March to the 20th April. The code will get you an extra £100 off any mattresses including those currently listed in Outlet, an extra £5 off any full-sized pillow, the code also works with the sale and works in conjunction with bonus products until 24/03. However, it cannot be used in conjunction with any other code in the public domain.


I've always had trouble with my sleep since I was a teen but I do feel like I've got into a good routine now that really helps me to achieve a good night's sleep. Before I even talk about my routine, I feel like it's kind of obvious to say but the first thing you should be thinking about if you're struggling to sleep is if your mattress and pillow are right for you.

If you feel like they aren't, then that's the first thing you need to change. I personally prefer a firm mattress because I feel like it offers me more support and also helps with my chronic pain and I tend to go for a medium to firm pillow but obviously, everyone is different.

 TEMPUR®'s unique mattress material was initially born from NASA technology in the late 70s when NASA scientists invented a new material, which is now known as memory foam to absorb G-force pressure during space flight. TEMPUR®'s founders realised that the material's pressure-relieving properties provide unrivalled comfort and support. So they decided to take the original NASA invention and spent years perfecting it into TEMPUR® Material and created the world's first memory foam mattress and pillow which evenly distributes weight and pressure which helps you to have a comfortable night's sleep and also helps to reduce tossing and turning throughout the night as well.

I've been using TEMPUR®'s Classic Comfort Pillow*  recently and I can definitely see and feel the difference between using a standard pillow and the TEMPUR® pillow. It’s a lot more supportive, comfortable and I feel well rested when I wake up in the morning.

The first thing that I find really helps me to unwind in the evening is having a bath usually around 7-8pm and using products that have been designed to help you to unwind and help you to sleep. Most of these products contain Lavender which really is a great scent and essential oil that helps you to relax and de-stress. If you're not a fan of Lavender then you could also opt for products that contain Geranium, Chamomile or Ylang Ylang to name a few as they also have calming properties.

I also really find that wearing comfortable pyjamas, ideally, ones that are a little oversized really helps me to sleep better. I hate wearing anything that feels restrictive (which is also because of my health problems) and I've found that cotton pyjamas are what I find most comfortable throughout the year. But obviously, everyone is different so I think it's just a matter of finding what's right for you but I would highly recommend sizing up in pyjamas for ultimate comfort goals. 

After I've had my bath and dried my hair I then tend to make a cup of herbal tea such as chamomile tea or some sort of sleep tea blend. I also like to spray my pillows and sometimes my whole bed with a pillow mist around this time as I find that pillow mists really help me to relax and they're something I've been using for many years.

Next in my routine is breathing meditation, I don't do this every night but I do try to do it most nights, especially if I've had a stressful day. It's something that's fairly new in my routine but I do think it's a good step to just help you chill out. It only takes around 5-10 minutes at most.

I've also recently started to use crystals again, I sometimes hold a few small crystals whilst I do my breathing meditation and I always make sure I have a couple of my favourite crystals on my bedside table. I find that Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Moonstone work well for me

Lastly is to try and not go on my phone and scroll through social media much/if at all when I'm winding down in the evening. Instead, I've been opting for either watching TV, reading or playing a relaxing game on my console for a short while before I try and get to sleep.   

What do you do to relax and unwind in the evening?
