Bedding Expert Peri Lauren's Ritual for Relaxation
As a bedding designer, I have spent a lot of time in bed and testing sheets! So many people ask me “what’s the secret to a good nights sleep?”
While I am no sleep expert, here are a few ideas and my suggestions that can help you catch some good zzz’s!
Get Ready for Bed
Once I’m washed up I get into my pajamas. Make sure you have good sleepwear! If you are uncomfortable in your pajamas, you will not sleep/rest well. I LOVE my KIP pajamas as they are so soft and comfortable - I feel free and cozy and ready for a good night’s sleep the moment I put them on! They are the perfect pajamas to slip into before I get into bed as they are made from the most amazing soft cotton which immediately relaxes me!
I try to put my phone down as soon as I get into bed as I feel I’ve been on it all day so I need to give my eyes and brain a much needed rest. I will watch a little TV or read until I’m ready to fall asleep. I also always have a warm glass of water with lemon on my night table as I find this soothing and relaxing like my own private spa!

Invest in Good Bedding
My bedding is another part of my good night’s sleep routine. I created bedding that is easy for bed making but is also so luxurious. Sleeping on good sheets is as important as being comfortable in your pajamas as you spend so much time in your pajamas and your bed!

Rest and Reset
Get a good night’s sleep! Even if you lay in bed for a while, it will immediately relax your body. We all have so much going on every day, it’s so important for so many reasons to get as much rest as possible. So get into bed at a time when you can sleep or even relax for at least 7-8 hours. Your body will get used to it and thank you!
