Cool temperature

Did you know that when it comes to sleep, temperature has been found to be even more powerful than brightness in helping our sleep quality through the night? Make sure your room is cooler than you think, ideally at around 18 degrees, and plan for sleep success by getting your bed ready with your favourite bedding and pillows.

When did you last treat yourself to some fresh new bedding? New pillows are an easy win for a great night’s sleep, as they help send a signal to your body and mind that right now, sleep is your number one priority. So go on, why not treat yourself to some new Premier Inn bedding?

Cosy nights, bright mornings

Cosy nights, bright mornings

Did you know that darkness is a powerful sleep clock cue? Light and dark play an important role in drifting off, as the brightness of a room tells your body when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep. That’s why it’s so important when cosying down at night to avoid bright, artificial light, so try not to look at any screens too close to bedtime. Plus, embracing the natural daylight in the morning is just as important as keeping your room dark at night for our circadian rhythms, so be sure to soak up the morning rays!

Safe sound mind

Safe sound mind

Your bedroom is at the heart of your wellbeing plan for mind and body. It’s where you can create a safe sleep sanctuary to promote a feeling of calm at the end of the day, from freshening up your bedside to making sure you have a ‘clean vibes’ space to relax in before drifting off.

Remember the last sleep cue is often thoughts about work, clutter or stress, so make sure you pay attention to your bedside, as any mess here may make you feel anxious. If your bedroom feels a bit samey and tired, especially after the last year, then why not give your space a glow up? Create a wellbeing space, clear your bedside and set aside some time for rest before bed.

Choosing to have a midweek self-care session or extra relaxing routine is key to a great night’s sleep too – it’s a free and easy way to be kind to your sleep patterns and mental wellbeing.
