World Sleep Day 2021

World Sleep Day 2021

I think it's safe to say that we've all become a lot more aware of our own health recently and what we can do to help feel rested and relaxed.  The importance of sleep is such a key factor in keeping healthy that we thought we'd share some of our own tips today on World Sleep Day!

Breathing. Simple breathing exercises can really help calm your mind so you can fall into a peaceful sleep.  Find whatever exercise works for you but we recommend using the 4-7-8 method.

Writing. If a busy mind full of the day's stresses is keeping you up try keeping a journal by your bed to write them down.  Writing down your worries may help you release them and allow you to fall asleep.

Meditation. There are so many resources online now to aid in starting your journey with meditation.  Even committing just 5 minutes a day to a relaxing meditation session can make a huge difference to your nights sleep.

Phone use. We all know we need to put our phones down more but actually doing it is a lot more difficult! It is hugely important to try and resist that late night scroll as the light that emits from your phone actually suppresses melatonin which aids sleep.

Exercise. You don't have to run a marathon for exercise to help you sleep! Simply getting some extra steps into your day will mean your mind and body is much more willing to relax into a peaceful nights sleep.

We are big fans of sleep here at Drifting Bear HQ.  So much so that we have designed a whole range of snuggly blankets and cushions that can help you relax!  You will find our whole collection of cushions and blankets here but we have included a few below that we think you'll love to cosy up under/on and take a snooze!
