Many of y’all know that I stay over eighty nights a year in hotels between work and for fun travel. While there is absolutely nothing like sleeping in your own bed, I have picked up a few tricks to help hotel stays feel as close to home as possible. I have teamed up with Bose® to share three ways to sleep better in a hotel. Hover over the image below to start shopping for your best night's sleep in a hotel!
1. Prepare Well for Sleep
Do you have a bedtime routine at home? If not, you should consider starting a few simple habits for better sleep in general. I have spoken before about how I start my bedtime routine with an epsom salt bath at home. Once my bath starts running and somehow my body knows it’s time to start winding down. In the same way, when I stay at hotels I make sure that I pack a shower melt that’s infused with a scent I have at home. For those of you wondering, a shower melt is similar to a bath bomb, except you just put it in the shower and it infuses the steam with essential oil. Despite being in an unfamiliar environment, my body is familiar with the scent of the shower melt and knows it’s time to start winding down.
2. Bring a little feel of home
I know a lot people travel with their personal pillow from home, but that is just not feasible when I am flying to multiple cities. If it’s a long trip I compromise and bring a pillow case from home. The feel of my linens from my house along with the faint scent of home are enough to help me drift off to sleep comfortably.
3. Mask Unwanted Noise
Let me tell you, it NEVER fails that the night before I have an important early meeting is the night there are children running up and down the halls of the hotel or my hotel neighbor decides to blast the tv volume so loud I can hear it through the walls. This is why I LOVE my Bose® noise-masking sleepbuds™. They fit extremely comfortably in my ears and instead of playing music, they play a variety of sounds that mask the jarring hotel noises. Thankfully, they are not fully noise cancelling in case you need to hear something like a fire alarm. At first I was very skeptical about sleeping in my Bose® noise-masking sleepbuds™ because I am a side sleeper. However, I was very pleasantly surprised that they were so soft and comfortable. They are easy to take on the go because they charge in their carrying case using the same technology as hearing aids. You can control the various noises, volume and even set an alarm that only you can hear directly from the Bose® Sleep app. You can shop for your own pair of Bose® noise-masking sleepbuds™ at Best Buy and BestBuy.com
