Celebrate World Sleep Day with KIP. & Estée Lauder

We pride ourselves on our commitment to helping women around the world find rest. We're excited to be partnering with Estée Lauder, creator of the iconic Advanced Night Repair serum, in honour of World Sleep Day by bringing awareness to the impact of sleep on our well-being, health and quality of life.

 

We created an exclusive robe in Estée Lauder's signature navy blue to pair with their new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex, which harnesses the power of night time to boost hydration and radiance.

 

World Sleep Day is an annual event organized by the World Sleep Society which celebrates the benefits of proper sleep. The event also draws attention to the effects and burdens of sleep problems and their medical, educational, and social aspects, and to promote the prevention and management of sleep disorders. As a brand founded on a mission to encourage rest, we know the importance of proper and adequate sleep well. Below, we'll be highlighting some helpful tips for getting the most out of your sleep and some resources for those dealing with sleep disorders.


Brain Dump

Regular journaling has been touted by mental health pros for years as an effective (and free) way to release tension from the mind. The University of Rochester Medical Center suggests that journaling can help manage anxiety, reduce stress and assist in dealing with depression. Experts recommend journaling as a way to purge negative feelings and emotions brought on by a bad day, or during a difficult time. Next time you feel negative thoughts creeping in as you fall asleep, try setting a timer for 10 minutes and putting your thoughts to paper. You might be shocked at how good it feels to get it out of your mind.

Screen Time

Try to turn off your cellphone, laptop and TV screen at least 2 hours before bedtime. Spending too much time looking at screens can have Negative effects on our ability to produce melatonin, an important hormone for sleep. Research also suggests that excessive exposure to the light from screens reduces our ability to fall asleep, disrupts REM sleep and can inhibit brain-alertness the next day -- no, thank you!

Leave your phone and computer out of the bedroom. If you must bring your phone to bed for whatever reason, keep it on airplane mode at night to avoid any distractions when it’s time for bed. Reading or listening to an audiobook can help to relax you better than scrolling through the day's funniest TikToks.

Sleep in Comfort

What you wear to bed actually impacts the quality of your rest. The Alaska Sleep Clinic recommends wearing loose-fitting garments made of 100% cotton as the best option for sleep. They insist natural fibres are the least likely to cause skin irritations or rashes. Our premium cotton pajama sets are great for restless sleepers and those with sensitive skin. The comfortable fit allows for a great range of motion and the 100% Premium Cotton ensures your skin stays happy and healthy all night long.

Setting aside time to gently move your body before bed helps to relax the nervous system and calmly prep the body for sleep. Plus, it feels amazing. Try incorporating stretching, foam rolling, self-massage or even gentle yoga into your routine for maximum relaxation.

Try keeping your workouts to morning, mid afternoon, or early evening. If you do get antsy before bed, try a calming yoga or stretching sequence to set the tone for relaxation and help to prep your mind and body for sleep. We love this video from Yoga with Adriene for pre-sleep yoga. Bonus tip: take a lukewarm shower right after which can help bring down your body temperature.
