HOT SUMMER NIGHTS
Stay cool with Shaynna Blaze’s range for Harris Scarfe
The benefits of a good night’s sleep can’t be overstated. Having enough quality sleep plays a huge role in our physical and cognitive performance as well as our mental and emotional wellbeing. With so much depending on sleep, it’s essential to create a good sleep environment.
To create a calm and tranquil space where you can find sanctuary, there are a few things to consider. Choosing the right bedding is key. It’s best to go for natural fibres like cotton, especially in summer given it’s breathable and helps to regulate body heat. The Shaynna Blaze High Loft Cotton Quilt and Hamelin Cotton Blanket are great options to keep you cool and comfortable on hot nights.
Choose the right pillows and you’re well on the way to restful slumber. The Shaynna Blaze Memory Fibre Pillow is a great option as it contours to the shape of your head, providing superb neck support. To maintain cleanliness and structural quality, you should change these pillows about every 18 months.
Reducing screen-time in the bedroom also improves your sleep. Using digital devices suppresses your production of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin and stimulates mental alertness, making it much harder to fall asleep. Natural remedies like essential oils can work wonders. Try a lavender spray on your pillow each night to calm the nervous system and encourage relaxation. This can be a great way to gently drift off.
