Beat the Sunday Blues

I haven’t been able to post the last few days as I’ve had a bad internet connection, so this Sunday post is a little late.  I had something else in mind for today, but when I couldn’t post I thought I might just skip it for the night.  However, after being in the car for the past three hours and just getting home, I was looking forward to relaxing in bed. And that leads us to this Sunday’s Beat the Blues.

Luxe Bedtime

Sometimes the best thing to do is just face Sunday night head on and get into bed. But getting into a sloppy bed is just not as relaxing nor comforting as a luxurious, well-made one. Take a cue from Hôtel Le Germain:

Even if you don’t have designer bedding or 1500 count egyptian cotton sheets, making bedtime special will make you feel better. Although this takes a little bit of forethought, it’s well worth it. My suggestions, in no particular order:

  • Freshly wash sheets – preferably straight out of the dryer so they’re still warm
  • Make the bed a little bit before going to bed so it doesn’t feel like a chore
  • Comfy pajamas
  • Soft lighting
  • Good book or movie
  • Chocolate
  • Linen spray like this one:

Any other suggestions?
