An Evening Bedtime Schedule: Enhancing Sleep Health, One Night at a Time

In the pursuit of a well-lived life, it's essential to recognise the significance of recharging our bodies and minds. As the sun sets and the day draws to a close, we enter a realm of rest and rejuvenation. Sleep, a vital component of our overall well-being, offers a valuable opportunity to nurture our sleep health.

This evening bedtime schedule offers practical guidance to create a sanctuary of tranquility, enabling us to prepare for a night of restful slumber. By embracing the rituals and elements presented here, we embark on a journey that honors the importance of sleep and cultivates a deeper connection to our well-being.

The Hour of Transition:

As the day draws to a close, grant yourself the hour of transition. Accept the day as its been, slow your pace and release the demands of the day. Transition from the busyness to a calmer state, preparing your mind and body for a restful night ahead.

When starting out, it may be helpful to set a time or an alarm and stick to it until it becomes habitual.

The Illumination of Gentle Glow:

As twilight settles, create a serene ambiance by dimming the lights. Embrace a gentle glow that illuminates your surroundings, inviting relaxation and tranquility. Soft lighting fosters a sense of calm, preparing you for restful repose.

Turn off harsh down lights and opt for a lamps with warm light bulbs and light some candles.

Nourishing Dinner Preparation:

Start your wind down as the sun falls, and let dinner preparation be a part of this ritual.

Cook slowly, taking your time and savouring the process. Pre-plan dinner earlier in the day, ensuring a stress-free and enjoyable experience, allowing you to fully embrace the calming atmosphere of the evening. Having the majority of the dinner planned out in advance relieves any worries or mental burden, promoting a more relaxing environment.

The Environment of Serenity:

Craft a soothing sleep environment by surrounding yourself with elements that promote relaxation. Clean your space, arrange your pillows and blankets in a way that invites comfort. Consider incorporating the softness and coziness of our IN Bed Linen to enhance the serenity of your sleep space. Introduce calming scents of 100% essential oils or room sprays from Happy Society to create a tranquil atmosphere.

Wind Down Yoga:

When the night is drawing to a close, dedicate 20 minutes to wind down yoga. Engage in gentle stretches and poses that promote relaxation and release tension. Focus on deep breathing and grounding yourself in the present moment. Let the yoga practice further prepare your body and mind for restful sleep.

The Elixir of Tranquil Herbs:

Savour the soothing properties of herbal tea as your evening elixir. Select from our curation from Mayde Tea. Sip slowly, allowing the warmth and herbal wisdom to envelop you, preparing both mind and body for slumber.

The Stillness of Mind:

Quieten your mind through practices such as meditation or gratitude practices that promote inner stillness. Breathe deeply, embracing the rhythm of life's essence allowing a sense of calm to settle within. In this stillness, you create a fertile ground for restful dreams to flourish.

Enjoy a Book:

If your mind is still not ready for sleep by this point, engage in reading. Indulge in the pleasure of a book that brings joy and relaxation. Choose a calming genre or a book that helps transport you to a different world. 


As we surrender ourselves to rest, we invite rejuvenation and the promise of a refreshed start. May your nights be filled with peaceful slumber, and may each morning greet you with vitality and serenity.
