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.

My four-year-old was talk­ing to my wife about what to get me for Christ­mas re­cently and he “in­no­cently” sug­gested I’d like the video game he plays with his friends.

VIRGO I used to love lis­ten­ing to my fa­ther and un­cle ban­ter­ing back and forth, as only broth­ers do, usu­ally about one mak­ing a gram­mat­i­cal er­ror and the other be­ing pedan­tic.

LI­BRA When Venus vis­its a sign, she usu­ally brings love, wealth, kind­ness and com­pan­ion­ship. It’s just that this time she came into your sign in re­verse.

SCOR­PIO My grand­mother was renowned for giv­ing gifts she re­ally wanted for her­self. She’d hand you a book, then ask to bor­row it. As Venus re-en­ters your sign, it sug­gests some­thing pre­cious is be­ing re­turned to you. Yet the fact it dis­ap­peared at all sug­gests you needn’t fo­cus on what you have, as it’s who you are that mat­ters. In that re­gard, you will have all you need this month. If you need some in­spi­ra­tion, this is your week. Call 1900 957 223.
