HomePillow Talk BlogAyurveda Wisdom and Advice for Better Sleep


The hours between 10 pm and 6 am are considered to be the most rejuvenating. We like to call it “the angel train” that leaves before 10 pm. If you go to sleep after 12 pm, you will find it more difficult to fall asleep and the quality of your sleep will not be good.


Eat a relatively light dinner. Going to sleep after a full and heavy dinner can make you uncomfortable and keep you awake.
If at all possible, a relaxing stroll after dinner is good for you.
Burn a diffuser or candle that has an aroma that makes you feel relaxed. The scents should not be chemically manufactured. Natural essential oils of lavender, camomile, sandalwood, neroli, patchouli and ylang- ylang and rose are calming on the nervous system and relax the body.
Enjoy a hot bath, with a few drop of relaxing essential oils of your choice for about ten to fteen minutes.
Burn a candle in the bathroom while you are soaking in the tub and listen to some beautiful music.
Drink a cup of warm relaxing herbal tea of your choice after your bath. Make sure that the tea does not contain caffeine.
If you have an over active mind, think about keeping a journal or notepad next to your
bed so that you can “download” your thoughts or “things to do” before you close your eyes.
Reading is good for you to relax but avoid dramatic novels or movies that could make you feel stressed and overstimulated.
Try not to do any work in bed after your lovely hot bath.
Close your eyes, consciously feel your body relax as you breath slowly.
Sleep and dream well.
