Sleep, wake, repeat. Read all about how our friends optimize their surroundings, unwind, and relax the mind for a good night—every night.
We sat down with Beth Shuman, the founder of 8 Faces, whose Boundless Solid Oil is a multitasking dream, to talk about her nightly bedtime rituals.
I’ve learned it’s the only way I can really get the most out of my day. I stopped drinking coffee so I need the sleep to recharge my batteries.
I do love sleep, and try to get at least 8 hours a night. Luckily my 22 month son also loves sleep or I’d be in trouble.
Oh yes. I believe in dreaming it, then real life-ing it. I actually do get a lot of insights from my dreams. Sometimes that’s where the solutions show up…where I can finally crack the code on something that in the waking hours didn’t have the time to really work out.
Flow water, citrine crystals, tarot cards, a stack of books, and a journal so I don’t forget those insights!
I listen to Bobby Klein on Spotify. He interprets the I Ching on a weekly podcast and I get so much out of his readings.
I just got black out curtains and what a difference that makes! I can also hear the ocean sounds from my son’s room on his little machine thingy and it’s quite soothing. My room is quite minimal and mostly all white and feels like my little zen retreat.
Stay off the phone before bed and don’t drink too much water. I recently started taking a few drops of a Bach Flower remedy called white chestnut and it helps calm a chatty mind.
I like feather pillows.
Invest in good bedding and a nice pair of pajamas.
