Mantras are short sayings we can repeat to ourselves when we’re going through tough times, when we need a burst or energy or when we need some extra motivation. Repeating mantras before bed help us to frame the events of the day in a positive light and set the intention for a good night’s sleep.
Sleep is when our brains rest and repair after the stresses of the day. It’s when memories are formed and solidified. So, introducing evening mantras before bed is the perfect way to instill them in your mind and memory.
"Relax, Reflect, and Renew"
Going to bed is the perfect time to reflect on the day and set yourself up for a great tomorrow.
Use this mantra to help you relax and unwind before you go to sleep: "I relax, reflect, and renew."
This is a great mantra for journal inspiration. Taking some time for yourself to go through the events of the day and siphon off the negative and reflect on the positive is a great way to calm your mind before bed.
Unwinding in your Cinnamon or White Silk Pajama Set under a Silk-Satin kimono sleeve robe, is a great way to set your intention for a calm and restful night. The Beauty Pillow x House of Silk Collab features two chic short pajama sets and the sultry Scarlett Bodysuit.
Sleeping in silk is great for temperature regulation, while the soft, delicate fabric creates a feeling of true luxury in every bed. Couples especially can benefit from the cooling properties of silk. One of the best sleeping position for couples isn’t sleeping close and cuddled up, it’s about keeping distance.
Sleeping with a partner is an intimate experience. Keeping the joy in the bed can be as much about getting enough sleep as enjoying the moments you share. Without adequate sleep we tend to feel grumpy and sluggish.
Adding simple tools like mulberry pillowcases help to regulate temperature and help to reduce allergic reactions that can interrupt your sleep and disturb your partner. Mulberry Silk fibers are coated in a protein called sericin, which is naturally hypoallergenic, antifungal and antimicrobial.
For those with long hair, using a silk hair accessory, like the Pure Scrunchie or Silk Twist Headband will help to keep your hair smooth and tangle-free while you sleep. And help to keep you hair away from your partner, improving both of your sleep hygiene!
"I am Ready and Resilient"
This is a great mantra to repeat before an important event or as a way to start your day. Starting each day with a positive and motivating mantra can help to set the tone for the rest of the day.
To inspire positivity for the task ahead, repeat the mantra: "I am ready and resilient."
Starting your day right starts the night before. As we get older, we tend to experience more stress and strain, both mentally and physically. Supporting our bodies in sleep with orthopedic pillows might sound like a move towards pillows for old age, but supporting our bodies in sleep is one of the easiest ways to support our bodies long-term.
Adding a tool like the ultimate beauty pillow, the Anti Aging Beauty Pillow will help to align the neck and spine in sleep. The orthopedic design gently elevates the head and neck through the neck and cervical neck support zones. This elevation helps to reduce strain and tension through the neck and shoulders, reducing the impact of poor posture and slouching that can lead to the development of “tech neck”.
The Beauty Pillow’s patented sleep zones go beyond orthopedic support. The pillow features a head cradle and side cut outs to help position the head in sleep. This positioning helps to prevent excessive movement that can pull and tug at the skin, causing it to weaken and lose elasticity.
The side cut outs help to reduce facial compression, preventing sleep wrinkles and product transference. Sleep wrinkles are more than just the lines you see on your face when you first wake up. Sleep wrinkles are deep set lines that follow the pattern of your nightly facial compression. They sit deeper than expression lines and can’t be treated by topical or cosmetic treatments.
The Skin+ is a Tencel sleep technology fabric that harnesses the power of antioxidants. The fabric features microcapsules infused with antioxidant carotenoids that gently burst on contact and attach to your skin through your silk sleepwear or bedding. Skin is rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Silk Pillowcase for Beauty Pillow fits the Beauty Pillow’s unique dimensions perfectly. Available in six luxe colors, from Champagne to the Blush Silk Pillowcase, the Mulberry Silk Pillowcase 22 Momme thread count is the perfect skin and hair care accessory. The gentle silk fibers allow skin and hair to slide across the surface of the pillow without catching or snagging.
Partnering your pillow with simple silk hair accessories, like night silk scrunchies, help to keep your hair out of your face while you get ready in the morning, without sacrificing on style. Beauty Pillow’s range of Silk Scrunchies don’t have to remain in the nighttime, wear them to create an effortlessly chic look for day time.
"I am Strong and Capable"
Sometimes, it can be challenging to find motivation and positivity. Using a strong mantra helps to remind yourself of your strengths and abilities.
To help boost your confidence in yourself, repeat: "I am strong and capable."
This is a great mantra for tough moments, first thing in the morning and before bed.
Creating a positive and strong mentality depends on a lot of different factors. Creating a strong mental state is no easy task, but it can be supported by simple lifestyle switches. Making sure you exercise, eat a balanced diet and get enough sleep are simple foundations for a strong mind and body.
Exercise produces endorphins, hormones that create positive feelings of well being. After exercise you’ll find your mood is boosted, your stress is eased and your energy levels are increased. It won’t solve every problem but exercise is a great way to help balance your moods and calm the mind, especially in times of extreme stress.
Eating well means eating a diet high in vitamins and minerals and low in processed fats and sugars. We need food and energy to think, to grow and to fuel our bodies, even in sleep. Eating too little will leave us feeling sluggish and tense, eating too much and we’re likely to feel bloated and lazy, it’s a difficult balancing act.
Reducing the amount of food and drink we consume before bed will help us sleep longer and deeper. The body uses sleep as a chance for the digestive system to rest, this is also when appetite suppressing hormones are released that encourage us to sleep longer. Without enough sleep, our bodies don’t cycle through these processes, leading us to reach for the sugar or the coffee way more than we would if we’d gotten an extra few hours.
Supporting your sleep with active support pillows from Beauty Pillow’s Well Aging Pillow Collection is a great way to boost your sleep, every night.
