Start Getting More and Better Sleep

- Pick a different style of pillow
- Upgrade your sheets ensuring they are lightweight and breathable
- Use a nature sound machine
- Install blackout curtains on the window(s)
- Make your room cooler while sleeping
- Remove distractions from the bedroom (television, laptop, music, etc.)
- Adopt a relaxing bedtime routine
Creating better sleep habits takes time, so you’ll need to be patient with this step.
Make the Switch to Herbal Tea
If you’re currently a coffee drinker, you may want to consider switching things up and replacing at least one of those coffees per day with herbal tea. Herbal tea doesn’t just taste great, it can also offer a variety of health benefits. Investing in an infusion and tea set with an infuser means you can pick and choose your blends. For example, visit konsebeauty.com and you will find herbal tea that promotes gut health, and skin radiance and balances your blood sugar levels for better energy.
Herbal tea can be wonderful any time of day and if you’re infusing the tea, it also means you can drink it hot or cold. Caffeine-free blends are ideal as an evening beverage, especially if it has calming and soothing properties.
Be More Social with Friends
Here’s a tip you may not expect to see on a list such as this, but it is incredible what socialisation does for you. Making the effort to get together with friends and catch up, vent, share some laughs and make memories can be a huge stress reliever. It encourages you to be in that moment, not focus on all the stress you’re carrying around and do something just for you.
The goal should be to see friends as often as possible but at the very least set up a tentative monthly gathering. This will give you something fun to look forward to.
Improving your well-being is a journey and it takes mindful effort. These steps can help you with your goals and help to make you a healthier, happier more content person.
