4 Ways To Relax At Night Time

Setting aside some time to relax each day can prove to be quite difficult for those with busy lives. However, it is crucial that we all have some time to ourselves every now and then in order to unwind and de-stress. So today, I wanted to share four of my favourite ways to relax at the end of the day that keep me calm and also allow me to get a good nights sleep too! Let's get started. 

1. Read a book
One of the best ways to unwind after a long and stressful day is to read a book. It is a well-known fact that delving into a bit of fiction allows your brain to switch off from all of the hectic things going on in your own life. It's so fun to escape your own troubles for a while and fully immerse yourself into a great storyline!

2. Light a candle
Lighting a scented candle in the evening is another great way to relax. There's something about dimmed light and the subtle sound of a flickering flame that is soooo soothing! It creates such a lovely ambiance and it also feels pretty romantic too, which is great if you are planning to have a cosy and chilled night in with your loved one!

3. Have a Lush bath
This is probably known as the most clich├ęd way to relax but taking a nice, long soak in the bath is a really great way to unwind. I love using Lush products as they are a lovely treat and they make bath time so much more fun, what with all of the different scents and colours! You could also listen to your favourite music to set the mood and turn your bathroom into your own private sanctuary. To pamper yourself even further, why not apply a face mask too?

4. Use a pillow spray
Last but not least, using a pillow spray before you go to bed is a great way to relax your mind and make you ready to hit the hay after a tiring day. Just a few spritzes on your pillow is all you need! I really recommend the 'Deep Sleep Pillow Spray' by This Works, as it contains three essential oils (including lavender and chamomile) which our renound for helping you drift off at night time.

So, those are my top 4 ways to relax at night time. All four of these techniques really do make a difference and they definitely make me feel a lot calmer and rejuvenated! I hope that some of you may find these ideas helpful, as it is so hard to combat stress these days. Do you have any techniques on how to unwind yourself? Please let me know by leaving a comment below, I would love to hear your suggestions and how they differ from mine!
