If there’s one thing I struggle with lately, it’s drifting off to sleep. A mixture of noise, working shift patterns and general anxiety and stress related thoughts keep me wide awake at night. Since getting my Fitbit Flex I’ve been tracking my sleeping pattern and it genuinely shocks me how bad it is some nights. Over the last month I’ve been so annoyed with getting just 4-5 hours sleep that I’ve been taking sleeping tablets. Not ideal to be taken on a regular basis and not great when I have to wake myself up before 5am for work, so I’ve been looking at alternative methods to help me drift off…
First, some Lavender fuelled scents – Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Pillow Mist and This Works Deep Sleep Body Therapy. I really love Lavender scents, I find them so relaxing and as a child I remember having a lavender scented pillow at my grandmas house. Perfect.
I’ve recently turned into a big tea drinker, experimenting more with unusual flavours. This Yogi Bedtime Tea sounds lovely so I will be hunting this down soon.
Disney Princess Jasmine Pyjama Set because who doesn’t want Disney pjs? and Lavender Eye Mask, I’m sure I’m not the only shift worker who absolutely hates being rudely woken by the sun shining through their curtains when they’re trying to sleep?
Finally, I had to add this because, well Neom. Who doesn’t want a Neom candle? All the reviews on this Neom Organics Tranquillity Scented Candle make it sound like the perfect bedtime candle.
Do you have any secrets for what helps you get a good nights sleep?
