I like to keep a few very important items right next to my bed.
Having a nice book to skim through right before bed gives me something else to do rather than stare at my phone screen right before bed. Don’t people say to turn your phones off hours before you go to sleep? I’m so bad at it, but having a book by my side gets me away from the devices. 5-HTP is a dietary supplement that promotes a calm and relaxed mood, while acting as a mild antidepressant. If you’re like me, you’re probably wound up right before bed and you have some difficulty stopping to rest. This supplement, along with Melatonin, really gets me in the right mindset for rest. Melatonin also promotes a great night’s rest. While I’m getting ready for bed, I like to light a candle because I think it contributes to the overall relaxing mood. After I’ve done all of my skincare, I like to lather my lips with this agave lip mask. Then I take that Soap and Glory body butter and make sure to moisturize the skin. I feel like I neglect to do this on a regular basis, so I am literally slathering moisturizers on my body nowadays to make up for lost time. Slather on people!
What do you keep on your nightstand?
