A good night’s sleep is so important for our well-being.

Our health is improved when we have restful sleep.

Mental functions are sharper and more reactive.

Our bodies heal and repair during sleep.

All which equate to a better mood and mental outlook during our waking hours.

Yet, so many of us struggle to get restful sleep.

Learn How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep In 5 Easy Steps:

Better Night's Sleep In 5 Easy Steps

Have A Routine For A Better Night’s Sleep

Better Night's Sleep In 5 Easy Steps

We all know that routine is essential in life.

From having a work schedule to scheduling activities.

We know where we need to be and when.

Even our children and grandchildren have schedules.

Yet sometimes we fail to have a healthy nighttime routine.

Having routine tells our minds and bodies when it is time to wind down.

Your routine may include doing a facial, showing or bathing, or reading.

Truly, whatever works best for you.

I try to do one more round of giving my pets attention.

Another thing I do is making sure the house is locked down tight.

Then I go do my self-care items such as makeup removal, skin care, and dental care.

The nighttime to-do list does not have to be long and should not be overly taxing.

It’s just a way to trigger the mind to recognize that bedtime is near.

Turn Off Electronics For A Better Night’s Sleep

Better Night's Sleep In 5 Easy Steps

Even with today’s current blue light filters on cell phones and smart tv’s we need to let our minds shut down.

Scrolling your Facebook feed, or searching the web is not the best thing to do right before bed.

The worst thing to do right before turning in is playing games on our phones.

Watching television is quite popular before bedtime.

Many people have televisions in their bedrooms.

It’s wonderful to enjoy lazing in bed watching a movie but it may not be the best thing to do before sleep.

Reserve bedtime television viewing for the weekends when you can sleep in a bit later.

Even with blue light filters, the mind cannot easily segway from full on to restful that quickly.

Plus, gaming, the Internet, and television can affect our dreams.

Give your mind a chance to unwind.

Turn the electronics off at least an hour before bedtime.

Take A Relaxing Bath For A Better Night’s Sleep

Better Night's Sleep In 5 Easy Steps

The mind-body connection is strong.

To relax the brain it is helpful to relax the body.

Taking a relaxing bath before bed sure can help.

Using essential oils in the bath is an extra bonus!

Granted bubbles are nice and I do use them but they lack the healing and sedative powers of Lavender essential oil.

Try adding some Lavender along with your bubbles.

Lavender is known for its calming powers and helps you get a peaceful sleep.

Warm water can release muscle tension and relax you.

Washing the stress of the day away is always a great transition into bedtime.

This is also a great time to let your mind wander instead of focusing on specific to-do things on your list.

Calming Music or Guided Meditations For A Better Night’s Sleep

Better Night's Sleep In 5 Easy Steps

I love guided meditations.

They really do work if you submit to them.

I also enjoy listening to a sleep track on Pandora.

I do this using SleepPhones which I have written about before.

Listening to soothing sounds keeps our minds off distractions.

For me, it keeps me from thinking about what I didn’t get done or what I need to do the next day.

It can also keep you from sounds outside, or within the home if others are still awake.

Other calming sounds could be nature sounds like water, crickets, crackling fire or wind.

Give it a try!

Quality Moisture Wicking PeachSkinSheets Better Night’s Sleep

Nothing feels better against the skin than a fresh clean set of sheets.

There is a lot that goes into quality sheets, however.

You will love their color range!

    These tips are really helpful to get better night sleeps.

    Great list of tips! I like you have a little list of things I do every night before bedtime. I ordered swatches awhile back and I really love the Eggplant and the Lavender Mist but those would never get approval lol. So I am torn between Graphite Gray and Brushed Silver.

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:54 pm

      Thank you Dana 🙂
      Ohhh tough call on those two!
      I would say Graphite Grey for Winter and Brushed Silver for Spring!
      So cool that you are already taking all the right steps for good sleep!

  3. February 22, 2018 / 12:03 pm

    Great tips! I find that I definitely get a better nights sleep when I do my nightly routine, which includes reading for about 20 or 30 minutes (or longer, if I am in a good spot in the book!). I love the color range of the sheets!!

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:48 pm

      Thank you Leah they are pretty sheets. Oh yes, reading is so relaxing and gets our mind more toward creative dream state rather than passive state when watching TV.

  4. February 22, 2018 / 1:04 pm

    I absolutely love PeachSkinSheets! I have about 6 sets of them (along with a duvet set) and I’ve purchased them for grown kids and for my mother-in-law. They are so so so soft and they wash and dream like a dream!

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:46 pm

      They sure do Elizabeth!! They really are the best! My whole family loves them too!

    You can get queen sheets for $80 right now. I like harvest gold

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:38 pm

      For 1500 thread count that is a deal indeed! Thank you for sharing that! Harvest Gold is pretty! Good luck in the drawing Laura!

    Ok, I’m guilty of being on my phone before I go to sleep. i used to read and I need to get back to that. I’ve been working on meditation and I do listen to New Age music like Constance Demby, Deuter, and Liquid Mind. Our Border collie loved that music. She used to lay on the living room floor upside down and just zone out. lol
    Those sheets sound awesome. There is nothing more comfortable than clean, cool, soft sheets.

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:57 pm

      That is what I have been working on Gisele – getting back to reading and putting the dang phone away sooner.
      Oh I LOVE Liquid Mind!!
      I will check out the other two!
      That is so cool your pup loved it too.
      LOL I can just see her laying on her back zoning out – in her special place haha.
      You are so right too – clean crisp cool sheets are the best!

  7. February 22, 2018 / 6:41 pm

    These are really great tips. I have never owned good sheets before! Maybe that is why I haven’t had a great night sleep in years (or it could be the constant influx of kids and animal) lol. I wish I could enter this giveaway as these look like great sheet set!

    • February 22, 2018 / 7:58 pm

      Jennifer I would love for you to try PeachSkinSheets. I bet that alone would help you get a far better night’s sleep!
      I am with you though lol sharing the bed with the pets – we end up contorting around them hahaha!
      My kids are now grown so I miss those days, sort of lol.
      I really wish you could enter the giveaway too darn it!

    This is something that I really need. Lately I don’t get enough sleep. Maybe this is would be perfect for me. I may need to have one.

    • February 23, 2018 / 8:04 pm

      Victoria you really should try them out! I hope you entered the drawing. You would love PeachSkinSheets!

    Ordered the light mocha swatch.

  11. February 23, 2018 / 1:05 pm

    I will definitely be checking out these sheets. I take medication to keep my cancer from coming back. It gives me hot flashes like you wouldn’t believe. Almost every night I wake up drenched. Then, of course, I can’t go back to sleep unless I wake my husband and change the sheets, after which we’re both wide awake and can’t go back to sleep abyway. I’ve never heard of moisture-wicking sheets but they would be a godsend.

    • February 23, 2018 / 8:06 pm

      Oh Cherri I bet the hot flashes from the meds are bad! I get hot flashes but from preimenopause. So glad you are now cancer free! Waking up drenched is no fun! I bet you and the hubby spend a lot of late nights watching TV.

    • February 23, 2018 / 8:11 pm

      I hope you get a chance to and soon! They are SO soft and I love how they come out of the dryer wrinkle free!

  12. February 23, 2018 / 4:10 pm

    I just started leaving my phone off and in another room recently. It truly screws up my sleeping pattern, it’s crazy!

    • February 27, 2018 / 6:21 pm

      Isn’t it weird how the phone can do that?! I mean just the fact of it being ON in the same room – must be those microwaves cell phones emit! Glad it is working to leave it in another room!

  13. Natalie
    February 24, 2018 / 7:18 am

    I learned that these sheets are anti-pill and anti-slip and they are wrinkle-free.

    • February 26, 2018 / 3:38 pm

      They sure are. They are awesome and I wish you the best of luck in the drawing Natalie!

  14. February 25, 2018 / 8:40 pm

    A warm bath and nature sounds playing are almost always guaranteed to put me to sleep and keep me there all night.

    • February 26, 2018 / 3:44 pm

      Me too Amber! Being active sure does help for a better rest at the end of the day.

    February 26, 2018 / 10:21 am

    i ORDERED Red Velvet Eggplant & lavender Mist

    • February 26, 2018 / 3:34 pm

      Ohhh such pretty colors! You will love them and best of luck to you in the drawing!

  16. Melissa Storms
    February 26, 2018 / 3:42 pm

    I learned that the sheets are anti pill and have moisture wicking qualities.

    • February 26, 2018 / 3:44 pm

      They sure are and they are AWESOME! Good luck in the drawing Melissa!

  17. Natalie Johnson
    February 26, 2018 / 11:38 pm

    I ordered midnight black and graphite grey. I heard these sheets are super soft

    • February 27, 2018 / 6:21 pm

      Gorgeous colors!! Wishing you great luck in the PeachSkinsSheets giveaway Natalie!

    • February 27, 2018 / 7:25 pm

      Gorgeous colors Natalie! They ARE super soft!! You will love them! Good luck in the drawing!

    I really love the blues hey offer both the Mariner and the Beach. I am a nightowl and have trouble sleeping so bedtime rituals help me finally drift off. The only time they dont is the book is just too good to put down 🙂

    • February 27, 2018 / 7:26 pm

      I just got a set of Mariner blue myself! GORGEOUS color! And so super soft! The beach is very pretty too!
      I am with you on being a night owl. I could not get sleep without my PeachSkinSheets and night time rituals.

  19. Cheryl Billings
    February 27, 2018 / 7:16 pm

    I would love to try the graphite grey swatch. I also think these would be extremely comfortable and lightweight.

    • February 27, 2018 / 7:23 pm

      They sure are Cheryl and you selected a gorgeous color! Good luck in the drawing!

  20. Kristen
    March 1, 2018 / 11:45 pm

    I ordered Mariner Blue and Sage.

    • March 2, 2018 / 5:16 pm

      Gorgeous colors! I have had sage for a long time and love it – just got a set of Mariner Blue! Good luck in the drawing!

  21. Laurajj
    March 3, 2018 / 11:43 am

    I learned that they dry super fast on med heat in only 15 minutes!

    • March 4, 2018 / 12:00 pm

      They do dry fast! Come out wrinkle free too. Love them. Good luck in the drawing Laurajj!

    I learned the sheets have Anti-Microbial to Prevent Dust and Pollen from Adhering to Fabric and Aggravating Allergies/Skin Issues. I have a lot of allergy issues, so I really like this feature!

    • March 4, 2018 / 12:03 pm

      I can’t swear by this but when I am using my PeachSkinSheets, it sure seems my allergies are a lot less intrusive on my sleep. Also, I have cats and dogs that sleep with me. Their claws do not snag the fabric the way they do on other sheets. Anymore I am only buying PeachSkinSheets! Once these other brands finally wear out I won’t buy anything but PeachSkinSheets.

  23. March 5, 2018 / 5:27 am

    All these sleeping tips mentioned above are great. Few more sleeping ideas are: Use a comfortable mattress and pillow, use a clean bed sheet, wash your face before going to bed, take little dinner, go to bed not too late, try to maintain a sleeping routine etc. I hope these tips will surely help you to get a pleasant night sleep. Thank you very much to share this well-written advice.

    I loved the tips to help you sleep better, like limiting screen time. Hopefully I can do that to get a better sleep!

    I love a good sheet set.. I’m thinking of the almond ivory.. but the mint is so pretty too..

    • March 7, 2018 / 10:30 pm

      You can get swatches of them both – as many as you want 🙂 Good luck in the giveaway !

    • March 8, 2018 / 12:51 am

      Me too Alice!!

  26. stacey
    March 7, 2018 / 11:04 pm
