4 Dreamy Tips for the Best Night's Sleep

4 Dreamy Tips for the Best Night's Sleep

Tara Sartoria prioritizes sleep every day of the year. Why? Because sleep is the foundation for a healthy mind, body, and a happy life. 

We all know just how important sleep is to the productivity of our fast-paced lifestyles. But when that insomnia problem catches up with you, when you’re left tossing and turning night after night … it’s hard to make the time to fix that. 

And even if you’re getting the right number of hours? We’re not always getting the quality of sleep we need. 

While we may be brilliant, hardworking professionals, supermoms or hustlers, we’re still just mammals, craving sleep instinctually. 

So, if you’re looking to get the best night’s sleep possible? You know, the kind you’ve been dreaming of? We’ve discovered these 4 handy tips to set you off in the right direction. 


A dream-inducing environment: cool, dark, peace and quiet!

It’s easy in this day and age to forget about some of the most primal necessities when it comes to sleep. But when you’re getting ready to rest your head? Make sure you create the perfect environment for yourself. 

Most experts agree that the sweet spot for temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. And, according to a National Sleep Foundation poll, 73% of Americans say the darker the room the better, 65% using shades, curtains or blinds to block out light. 

So, yes, turn off those lights, try and keep the room nice and temperate – even if you have to turn to some thermoregulating pajamas to ensure YOU stay nicely cool/hot – and don’t forget to switch those lights off. 

But we also recommend opting for lower-lighting in the few hours before bed. This can be a great way to signal to your body that it’s time to wind down, ready for you to black out the lights and nod off into dreamland when the time comes. 

If you struggle with working day shifts, the expense of installing black-out blinds, or just have some young kids who need a few lights on in the house? Don’t hesitate to invest in a high-quality silk sleep mask. These can be a great way to shut out that light, reduce some excess noise, and get you the best sleep possible. 

And don’t forget about your bedding choices too! Having a special pillow that makes you oh-so-comfy when you do finally hit the bed? It can make a real difference!


Wind down with some light, relaxing yoga

While you should definitely include some exercise throughout your day – to ensure you’re accurately tiring out your body (work-from-homers, this one’s for you!) – high impact exercise too close to bed can actually wind you UP. The endorphins generated by this form of exercise are set up to make your body keep going. 

Which is the last thing you want right before bed!

This is why yoga can be such a great solution for your bedtime routine. Slow, mindful movement not only stretches you out, it can actually help you create a relaxing space between the day and the dreamy night sleep ahead of you. 

If you do love a vigorous evening workout? There’s a reason they say “there are only two things to do in the bed, and they both start with ‘s’”!

That’s probably the only time you should be thinking about heavy exertion before sleep! And we all know how that one impacts your endorphins ;) 


Switch off your phone for more reasons than one … 

We all know the adage that artificial light from screens can disrupt that circadian rhythm, telling your brain that it’s still broad daylight when, in fact, all you want to do is relax. 

But did you know that a social media scroll can also be an incredibly stressful experience when trying to wind down?

We won’t fight you on binging your favorite series before bed. But when it comes to looking at “aspirational” images of life that seem perfect from the outside, horror stories about the state of the world today, or even just refreshing that feed to see if anyone else possibly liked that cute pic of you? Leave this for the daytime. 

Your nighttime brain really doesn’t need to be trying to figure out how to heal the state of the world right before it sets itself up for bed. 

If you can’t resist a little screen time in the sheets? Maybe consider blocking those social media apps in the later hours and sticking to calming ASMR videos instead!

Anything you can do to ensure a smooth night’s sleep, free of all those nagging fears.

"Just bought your silk pajamas for men and they are terrific. Wondering if you’ve ever considered the following: I have terrible chronic back issues and have bought these pajamas with the thought that they will help me sleep better as the slippery-ness will make it easier to toss and turn in bed. Surprisingly I found that wearing them inside out they are much more slippery on the sheets than wearing them the proper way. I was surprised at this as it would seem to be the opposite would be true. I had the best night sleep I have had in a long time ... Thanks for the great pajamas."
