Make the Most of Daylight Saving Time!

Sunday, November 2nd marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. Come 2:00 AM, we will turn our clocks back an hour. Although we gain this extra time, this also means shorter, colder, winter days, which will make us all want to spend more time sleeping.  Check out a few of our faves to make sure you're getting the best night's sleep possible:

DE-STRESS AND UNWIND
It’s important to take time to unwind before bed to ease the mind because a consistent routine every day can help you fall asleep more quickly and reliably. Lighting an aromatic candle will help calm the nerves before bed.

NOURISH AND REGENERATE
While we sleep, the cells making up our skin are hard at work trying to repair all the damage that has been accumulated during the whole day overnight. This is the time to utilize nighttime skincare to help repair, nourish and regenerate.

THE PERFECT MATTRESS
People sleep for approximately one third of their lives and studies have shown the benefits of sleep have long-lasting effects on your health and well-being. Look for a mattress that has natural fibers such as hypoallergenic horsehair that acts as a mini ventilation system eliminating moisture and allowing fresh air in for a comfortable night’s rest.

OLD SCHOOL REMEDY
If all else fails, try a glass of milk. There's a reason why your grandma always told you to drink warm milk— it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps induce sleep.
