Tips to help you get quality sleep: By Henna Sharma



A sound sleep is the cornerstone to a happier & healthier life. A good night sleep is essential for the body to repair, and the mind to rejuvenate. There is a lot of evidence that suggests that sleep is what makes learning and storing memories possible. I firmly believe people who get adequate sleep are generally happier, healthier, and more aware. It is a powerful tool that helps us to be in-tune not only to our mind & body connection but also to our subconscious mind. In any spiritual discipline, sleep is often times a great carrier to the deep realms of inner consciousness and spiritual awakening.


One can incubate a lot of positive and negative thoughts in their sleep and often times we manifest those feelings in our sleep through dreams. A disturbed sleep not only has physiological effects on your body but can lead to psychological concerns too.


Over the years, I have adopted several mindfulness techniques and habits which have helped me sleep better and to remember my dreams when I wake up:

  1. Fixing a sleep schedule and going to bed & waking up at the same time helps my body adjust to the routine and respond accordingly

  2. Burning incense and/or camphor to cleanse my surroundings of any stressors and negativity. Burning incense is an evening ritual that automatically has a calming effect on my mind

  3. Aromatherapy oils such as lavender, sage and rose really help to calm my mind and reduce anxiety & stress. Aromatherapy uses different plant based essential oils and have proven to have powerful therapeutic effects. I put few drops of my favourite lavender essential oil in my diffuser or on my pillow before I go to bed

  4. Having a bed time ritual. I maintain a gratitude journal and write things that I am thankful for. This helps to clear my mind and set a positive mindset. Going to bed angry or flustered is the last thing you want to do. Being in a harmonious mindset is essential for a good sleep

  5. I make an intent before going to bed to remember my dreams. It was a very simple tip that I received from Dee and it genuinely worked for me

  6. Making my bedroom a gadget free room. I keep my phone away from the bed as much as possible and often put it on silent to avoid any sleep disruptions

  7. Bedroom should be a dark and quiet place. This helps your mind relax and drift away to a happy and better sleep

  8. I try to avoid caffeine after 4pm as that can interfere with one's sleep cycle

Sleep better. Dream better.
