Our Daily Rituals - Kirstyn König

It's no secret that the team at Flax Sleep is into self care. It's also no secret that we believe a great sleep is the ultimate form of self care.  Creating a home that is a sanctuary is also a pretty fine way to care for yourself.

In this second installment of #ourflaxrituals series, Kirstyn König (one of our top Vancouver style icons) lets us know a bit about how she practices self care, and gives us a peek into her sanctuary as well.

 


  •  

    Name:

  • Kirstyn König

  • Current occupation:  

  • Stunt Performer/Dancer/Aerialist

  • Dream occupation:  

  • Currently doing it! Would love to add stylist to the resume eventually.

  • Where were you born?

  • Calgary, AB, Canada

  • Where do you live now?

  • Vancouver, Canada


  • When do you usually wake up in the morning? Do you use an alarm clock?  

  • Totally depends, but usually the sun wakes me up in the morning, as my loft is extremely bright.  I do use an alarm (on my phone), but often end up waking up just before it goes off.

  • Tell us a little bit about your morning routine (and what, if anything, makes getting up easier). Do you have a specific product/ritual that helps you get up and face the day?  

  • Exercise! I love getting up early and getting my workouts done at the beginning of the day. It energizes me and makes for super productive days!

  • Naps. Tell us about them. We love them, but can barely squeeze them in our busy schedules (and sincerely regret every nap we passed up as children). Do you ever nap?

  • Not as often as I’d like, but I do try to squeeze a short one in every once in awhile!

  • What time do you usually go to bed?

  • Really depends on my day. Working in the TV/Film industry has extremely long and irregular hours, but I function best the following day when I’m in bed before midnight.


  • Tell us a little bit about your evening routine. Do you have a specific product/ritual that gets you ready for a good night sleep?

  • I live for a good bath in my claw foot tub; complete with loads of bubbles, Epsom salts, face mask, a generous glass of wine and my laptop set up with my favourite Netflix show!

  • How much sleep do you usually get a night/how much importance do you place on sleep?

  • As I’ve gotten older I tend to sleep less then I did in my youth. I really do try to sleep-in sometimes, but my body just wakes me up and tells me it’s time to start my day! So I’d say I average around 6 hours per night.

    Have you slept in linen bedding ?  If yes, what did you think? If not, would you like to?  Yes, I have and it’s been life changing! I honestly don’t know how I ever slept in anything else. It’s a must for anyone who’s craving a luxurious sleep.
