Estalitaa Pinto, Resident Fitness Instructor at The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort shares her sleep well tips, “Sleep connects directly with your mental well-being, so training your breath and maintaining a breathing pattern is really important. Meditation helps with that, to calm your mind and relax your body, allowing you to sleep well through the night.”
To mark World Sleep Day, The Westin Mumbai Garden City is offering a staycation package with a buffet breakfast and special dining offers.

Passang Bhutia, Spa Therapist at The Westin Mumbai Garden City also shares tips on a pre-bedtime ritual, “Immersion in a hot tub for just 15 minutes about half an hour before bedtime can ease the aches and pains that can interfere with comfortable positioning for a restful sleep. The warm water elevates the body temperature, and the process of cooling down can ease the body into the deep sleep it needs.”
