THE ULTIMATE BEDTIME ROUTINE FOR DEEPER SLEEP—AND A MORE ENERGIZED A.M.
By ARDEN FANNING ANDREWS, AUGUST 6, 2018
“Brooke Alpert, RD, author of The Diet Detox, fully believes in this ritual. “I love talking to clients about ‘sleep foreplay,’” she says. She recommends taking a magnesium supplement with a cup of Pukka’s Night Time tea. “It’s organic—and not bitter at all!”
“To drift away even faster, swap blue light for a wash of white noise.“Our hearing is used as an alarm system to protect us when we’re asleep—white noise can mask those sounds that wake us up,” Alpert says. She’s a sucker for the $1 White Noise App that actress Nina Dobrev recently touted, though the options are endless—oscillating fans, ocean waves, whale songs, cats purring. “What’s most important is to find what sound works best for you,” she says. Gentle sound of a spin bike whirring, anyone?”
