Level up your evening routine with tips and tricks Team TSS loves to utilize. Creating a routine that works for you and leaves you ready for some ZZZ’s is what we’re all about. Find our top picks for creating a space that leaves you recharged and relaxed every single night.
Set The Mood
Turning down the lights, lowering the shades, putting on some white noise, whatever it takes for you to have a restful night’s sleep. One key element to this is limiting screen time. Studies show two or more hours of screen time in the evening can seriously disrupt the melatonin surge needed to fall asleep, therefore disturbing your body’s natural circadian rhythm. (Via SutterHealth). If you struggle with this, try putting your phone away 10 minutes before you usually do, and gradually increase that number until you reach around an hour. Another helpful tip with setting the mood is to gradually decrease the brightness of the lights in your room as you prepare for bed. Turn off any overhead lighting, and rely on a sole bedside lamp or floor lamp for the last hour before you fall asleep.

Relax Your Mind
To maximize your evening routine, when you’re ready to get settled for bed, prioritize giving your body and mind time to wind down. This ritual looks different for everyone but some of our favorite ways to unwind are through meditation or reading. All it takes is 5-15 minutes of you sitting with yourself, your thoughts, and your breathing. We love listening to Ameerah Omar’s Finding Calm + Rest Meditation on the TSS App to prepare for sleep after a hectic day. If meditation’s not your thing, maybe reading is. Below are some of Team TSS’s Favorites.
Elevate Your Space
Another way to feel ultimate relaxation and comfort is by creating a space you love. Invest in that nice mattress, treat yourself to some silk pillowcases, and discover those sheets that make you feel immediately at peace when you hop into bed. Some of our favorite tips to create a plush, comforting bed are to bulk up on the pillows, double up on the duvet, and have lots of blankets. Everyone has their own idea of what the “perfect bed” looks like, so take some time to think about how you can level up your own situation and we promise you’ll feel even more relaxed every single night.
