Work. Eat. Sleep (badly). Repeat. You know that you need to step off life’s treadmill and properly relax of an evening but it can - ironically - seem like too much effort. It doesn’t have to be. Follow a few simple tips for de-stressing to help set yourself up for better rest - and all the rejuvenating benefits that follow. Read on and you’ll see it’s as easy as 1-2-3; plus, find out how you could win your most relaxing year yet.
1. Set the scene for better sleep
Start from the outside in. Invest in some natural fabric sleepwear - cotton, bamboo, silk and satin all help keep you stay cool and comfy. Ditch the restrictive workwear when you get through the door, and don’t forget to swap shoes for slippers that massage your feet. Try and include some foods containing the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan in your evening meal - you’ll find some ideas in our recipes for a great night’s sleep.
2. Ease away the stress away with a massage
A great night’s sleep can start with calming your head as well as your body, and a massage tackles both at once. Of course if you dropped in to see a therapist on your way home, it could be hard to keep that serene feeling going on a busy train afterwards. But our partners at Urban Massage come direct to your door so they fit right in to your routine. If you choose a relaxing massage, your therapists use light pressure and flowing strokes to calm the nervous system and reduce stress, helping you clear your mind and relax your body in preparation for better sleep. Over the course of a 60, 90 or 120-minute treatment you can enjoy the use of soothing aromatherapy oils, such as lavender, which will help you feel relaxed throughout.
For a limited time, you’ll even get a £20 discount on Urban Massage bookings with every order that includes a Simba Hybrid® Mattress (just check your order confirmation email for instructions).
3. Make yourself comfortable
Now you’re feeling calm and collected, it’s time to tackle the other enemies of sleep, such as making sure your blissed-out body is soothingly supported. Our Hybrid Mattress matches the cushioned moulding of memory foam to super responsive individually pocketed conical springs that move with you. It means you can enjoy the soothing feeling of sinking in a little, while still remaining perfectly supported. If you keep your tension in your shoulders, you’ll also want to be able to adjust your pillow height and firmness to suit you. Our Hybrid® Pillow can be customised to your preference - just unzip and add or remove a handful of our innovative and adaptable Nanotubes™. Now your pillow is ready to cradle your head to suit your sleeping style, all you need to do is keep the sweet smell of sleep success going by adding a few spritzes of Sleep Spray.
There they are: your three steps to sleep heaven.
