With Sleeptember coming up (1-30 September) and National Sleep In Day (27th October) on the horizon, we thought this would be a great time to share some tips for your best night's sleep ever!
What's more, with this unpredictable weather, who wouldn't want their bedding to be temperature regulating! Keeping you cool during a heatwave and warm on the colder days?
Miriam Tyrangiel, Founder, of undercoverliving.com shares some tips with us.

1. Minimise distractions
Make your bedroom a space of serenity and calm. The laptop and phone stay out of the bedroom completely to help me switch off mentally. Clear your bedroom of clutter to clear your mind and you’ll go off to the land of nod in no time.

2. Create a bedtime routine
We’re creatures of habit: create a bedtime routine that calms your mind and prepares your body for bedtime. What’s important is to stick to your own routine, whatever it may be: herbal teas, meditation, reading, or maybe a bubble bath.

3. Let it breathe
Go for breathable fabrics, in your pyjamas as well as bed linen, to let your skin breathe. Cotton or linen are ideal.
5. Stay cool
Because your body heat peaks in the evening, a slightly cooler room will help you fall asleep more easily. Undercover’s TENCELTM bedding is also temperature regulating, an additional bonus to help you stay comfortable at night.

3. Stay active
Studies show that exercising regularly can improve the quality of your sleep. Apparently you need to be working out regularly for at least 16 weeks to see results and avoid exercising 3-4 hours before going to bed.
