Our night time routine is extremely precious to us. During my daughters first year on this earth we learnt so much about sleep, how badly we need it and how precious the time is for my husband and I after the kids are down. It’s a relaxing, stress free event here.
We have a fairly solid routine in place and it begins at 6.45pm. We select our diffuser blend, our toddler loves to choose for herself. We choose two sometimes three books, we do our bathroom duties and my daughter loves to help put her baby brother to bed. Then it’s her turn for story time, I never rush this part, I know that there will be a point in her life where she won’t want me to read with her anymore. Using a diffuser throughout this process has calming and relaxing effects. We speak about things we loved throughout the day and our daily gratitude and she drifts off to sleep without a fuss. They aromas will remain so close to my heart as my children grow, this time is so precious.
We know that everything we do during our daily routine influences our health and wellbeing; however, we often forget that our sleeping habits are just as crucial to our health. Yes, exercising, eating right, and
finding a healthy way to deal with emotions and stress are all important parts of our day, but allowing our minds and bodies to rest and recuperate at night is equally important. While some may think that the only consequences of poor sleep are feeling groggy or sluggish the next day, sleep deprivation has actually been linked to a number of health risks that can impact the body.
While we sleep, our brain processes information, stimuli, and memories from throughout the day. As the brain sorts through important information and memories, it clears away waste and excess information in order to refresh the mind—allowing the brain to start fresh in the morning.
For many people, getting better sleep isn’t simply a matter of going to bed earlier or rearranging their schedule. Many adults have the best intentions of getting good sleep, but their plans are thwarted when they can’t get their brain or their body to settle down.
