Color us old, but there are some days when we look forward to nothing more than diving into our bed, with a cool cup of water on the nightstand and a book to devour mid-plot. Bedtime is a hallowed time, and we like to think that we’ve got our wind-down ritual down to a science. Yet, what if the lavender mists and matching carafe/cup set aren’t enough? What if the stars have prescribed you the absolute perfect nighttime routine that will promise you your best night’s sleep, and you've been missing it this whole time?

We turned to MyDomaine’s resident astrologer Amelia Quint to find out what the stars have prescribed for a night well rested, along with the one power product that will help you fall asleep even faster. Ahead, Quint shares the tip to get some quality shut-eye along with your new cuddle buddy from IKEA. Ready to catch some zzz’s?

As the first sign of the zodiac, sleeping isn’t exactly your first priority. You’re much more interested in all the exciting things you can accomplish during your waking hours! Try reframing the way you think about sleep. Instead of seeing it as hours lost, remember that it’s the time when your body heals and repairs itself for more successes yet to come.

Your Bedtime Power Product: Choose a throw that gets you excited to hunker down in bed for some much-needed rest. A gentle color and soft fabric are musts.

Make sure your bedroom has something for all your senses to enjoy, like a room spray or good music.
