Ever wonder how some people embrace their mornings with arms (and eyes) wide open ? We all know the pain of waking up at the crack of dawn, but there are plenty of perks that come with starting your day bright and early: smoother roads, shorter queues at the coffeeshop, snagging a seat on the MTR… trust us, it’ll be worth it!
Step away from the snooze button now
According to the folks at Okooko by European Bedding, you don’t have to be an early bird (or a masochist) to love your mornings. Specialising in natural organic latex mattresses, the sleep specialist stocks a premium bedding range aimed at helping you maximise your rest. All it takes is the right mattress for a good night’s sleep, and you won’t have to drag your feet when the day comes around. Want to ditch your night owl routine? Check out our tips on how to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go.
The night before…
Start with a natural, organic latex mattress
Keep the grouch at bay by getting optimal rest – it may seem like a foregone conclusion, but investing in a premium mattress plays a large role in the quality of your sleep. Topping our list are the Heveya natural organic latex mattresses from Okooko by European Bedding, as these durable and environmentally-sustainable mattresses offer excellent back support without compromising on comfort. They let you customise the firmness of your mattress (there are soft, medium and firm options, a choice of a softer or firmer half for king-size mattresses), with latex that molds and contours to your body like a dream. What’s more, the 100% au natural material is hypoallergenic (dust mites, begone) and boasts built-in ventilation, thanks to the open cell structure and pin core holes in the latex. It also comes with a removable bamboo cover, so you can hoover those nasties away!
We get that latex mattresses come with a pretty substantial price tag, but here’s the good news: every Okooko by European Bedding customer gets a free trial over a period of 100 nights, so you can be darn sure you won’t be settling for anything less.
Purchase a queen or king size mattress, and receive two complimentary organic latex pillows worth a total of HKD 3,000.
Power down with a meditation sesh
Once you’re nicely settled on your spanking new latex mattress, it’s time to put your smartphones aside. Zen out with a simple meditation session and clear your mind of any negative thoughts or worries. Psst… bookmark our nifty roundup of wellness apps and gadgets if you need a little help. Inhale love, exhale gratitude!
Unwind with a soothing bedtime routine
Level up your bedtime prep with aromatherapy, candles or a relaxing beauty regimen. It’s all about creating a warm and inviting ambience that’ll get you in the mood for sleep. Go ahead, pour yourself a cup of chamomile tea.
The morning after…
Keep your room bright and airy
What better way to start the day than with a good dose of sunshine? Ease your mind and body into waking up on time by keeping the drapes open and letting the morning sun do the work. For those who want an extra boost, this light therapy lamp and alarm clock should do the trick.
Have an energy-packed breakfast
Whether you’re having your breakfast in bed (we don’t blame you!) or grabbing a quick bite on your way out, it’s always a good idea to fuel up with a wholesome meal. Try making yourself a simple banana smoothie or if you’re feeling fancy, a healthy acai bowl.
