How important is sleep to your personal daily life?
Sleep is the most important thing to me. The way I’ve slept the night before has a huge impact on my mindset the next day. If I’ve had a good 8-9 hours of sleep, I know my day is going to be productive and I will make the right choices in my work, lifestyle and relationships.
What does a typical sleep routine look like to you?
I usually delete my Instagram app at around 8pm so that I am not at all distracted in the evenings. I am a big fan of the Goodnight Pillow Mist from Neal’s Yard Remedies, which I spray onto my pillows, and then I like to put a face mask on, or apply a night oil or serum. I let it soak into my skin while I answer my last emails and text messages that I may have missed that day. Finally, I like to read a few pages of the book that I’m currently reading - at the moment it’s ‘My Path To A Meaningful Life' by Giselle Bundchen. I highly recommend it! It’s one of those great inspirational books, that pushes you to make the best out of life.
What is your bedroom like?
I like to refer to my bedroom as a little box. I prefer having a smaller bedroom - it makes me feel more safe and serene. The ceiling of my bedroom is made from glass, so in the day, the light is so refreshing and calming. It’s important to me to keep my room as tidy as possible - I really feel that I have a better night’s sleep in a tidy room.
What is your sleep position?
1000 positions! I woke up one morning and realised I had switched to the end of my bed with my feet facing the pillows. I have no idea how that happened!
Do you follow any rituals to help you sleep better?
I put my phone on airplane mode when I sleep, always! I do also try to meditate and be grateful for my day, which helps me relax and wind down.
What are your top “sleep well” tips?
- Never go to sleep on an argument
- Try not to drink any caffeine 4 hours before bedtime
