Sarianna organized the St. George Design Market in December, and she has also designed the window stickers for St. George Bakery.

#momentsaremore #supportyourlocal Dear Friends, we have made a tough decision to temporarily close our doors from this Wednesday until further notice. We will be back and can’t wait to see you soon again. Now - let’s stay home and take a good care of each other.

#momentsaremore #seeyousoon If it’s so clear that sleep is crucial, why then do so many of us not prioritise it? The answer is simple: humans just don’t want to go to bed on time. This means most of us will need to actively put effort into ensuring high-quality sleep that boosts our well-being. Happily, you can greatly improve your sleep just by following a few simple steps:
.
💤 Go offline. Turn off your phone, laptop and other smart devices a couple of hours before bedtime. Blue light over stimulates the brain, making it difficult for the mind to rest.
.
💤 Cut the caffeine. Avoid caffeinated drinks late in the afternoon. Caffeine has a long half-life, which means it can take all day for your body to eliminate it.
.
💤 Sleep in a supportive bed. A bed that supports your body and adapts to its shape is hugely beneficial. Each room at Hotel St. George features a luxurious and high-quality DUX bed.
.
💤 Exercise regularly. When you exercise regularly, eat well and keep to a routine daily schedule, you will fall asleep faster and sleep deeper.
.
💤 Lighten up. Light therapy emulates natural light and promotes a healthy, regular sleep- wake cycle. Head down to the @stgeorgecare spa for a visit with Big Sky, our innovative light wall.
.
Sweet dreams! #holisticwellbeing #momentsaremore #stgeorgehelsinki #stgeorgejournal
