Do you ever wonder why your Abuelita swears by her chamomile tea before bed? Or why your friend insists on sleeping with lavender-scented pillows? It’s because they understand the power of sleep. But it’s not just going to bed; it’s about creating the perfect sleep environment and adopting habits that nourish your body, mind and spirit. 

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me…” Matthew 11:28-29

I have become an expert on ways to get a good night’s sleep. My family has always made fun of me because when I am sleepy, I will fall asleep anywhere. My problem is staying asleep. 

Let’s delve into my secrets to achieving the best sleep of your life.

  1. Mastering Your Sleep Sanctuary:
  • Air Quality: Fresh, clean air is essential for quality sleep. Invest in an air purifier to eliminate allergens and pollutants that can disrupt your rest. You can try these below (All sold on Amazon) which are my favorites for me and the ones I recommend to my clients. 
    • Honeywell HPA 200 
    • Honeywell HFD320 Air Genius 5
    • Conway Airmega AP-1512HH
  • Optimal Lighting: Mimic natural light patterns with dimming bulbs or blackout curtains to signal to your body when it’s time to wind down.
  • Choosing the Right Mattress and Pillows: Your mattress should be proper support and comfort. Memory foam, latex, or hybrid mattresses are popular choices. Here are the Best Mattresses in 2024 by New York Times.
  • Pair it with pillows that support your neck and spine alignment.
  • Luxurious Sheets: Slip into soft, breathable sheets made of natural fibers like cotton or bamboo for a cozy and comfortable sleep experience.

2. Eating for Better Zzz’s:

  • Bedtime Snacks: Opt for light, sleep-inducing snacks like bananas, almonds or a small bowl of oatmeal to promote relaxation.
  • Avoid Heavy Meals and Stimulants: Steer clear of heavy, spicy, or caffeine-laden foods close to bedtime as they can disrupt digestion and keep you awake.


  1. Tuning into Sleep-Friendly Tunes:
  • Soothing Sounds: Create a calming bedtime playlist featuring ambient sounds, classical music, or guided meditations to lull you into a peaceful slumber.

  1. Acupuncture for Sleep Support:
  • Ancient Wisdom: Explore acupuncture, an ancient Chinese practice that involves stimulating specific points on the body with fine needles to promote better sleep, reduce stress, and restore balance.
  • Physical Restoration: Sleep is when your body repairs tissues, strengthens the immune system, and regulates hormones crucial for overall health ad well-being.
  • Mental Clarity: Adequate sleep enhances cognitive function, memory consolidation, and emotional resilience, allowing you to tackle challenges with a clear mind.
  • Emotional Balance: Quality sleep fosters emotional regulation, reducing the risk of mood disorders and improving interpersonal relationships.

Why your Body, Mind, and Spirit Crave Quality Sleep:

In conclusion, optimizing your sleep environment, adopting healthy sleep habits, and incorporating sleep-supporting practices into your routine can calm your nights, energize your days and hence Transform your Life.

So, dim the lights, fluff those pillows, and drift off into dreamland – your body, mind and spirit will thank you for it!
