Raise your hand if you want to get a good night’s sleep? Who doesn’t! We all want to wake up feeling fresh and looking fab. Beyoncé has a lot to answer for…
Besides the lack of the ‘I woke up like this’ look, I can safely say that my sleep routine is pretty robust and works everytime. The only time I ever find it hard to sleep is being in a new place and in a new bed for the first night like when you’re on holiday. After that first night, I am fine. So here are my top tips for a good night’s sleep.
I swear by these small genius inventions. I used to wear them because my ex snored. Fortunately, my partner now doesn’t but because I am such a light sleeper and I have super sonic hearing, I wake up at the drop of a pin. Putting ear plugs in correctly takes some practise as wearing a pair every night in the wrong way can cause pain and discomfort. My favourite brand of ear plugs are Moldex. They are super comfy and easy to pop in. Ear plugs won’t be a forever thing and it’s something I would like to train myself out of but boy does it mean you get a good night’s sleep. Always carry a pair if you are going somewhere on your holibobs. You never know when you might need them.
I have been using ‘This Works Sleep + Pillow Spray’ for a good year or so now. It smells divine, it works a treat and I can’t say anything negative about it. Go and grab yourself one if you struggle to sleep.
Reading and Podcasts
I am the first to admit I am not a huge, avid reader. I never have been. However, since getting into Podcasts and having books on my Kindle I really try to do one or the other before bed. For me, it makes me super sleepy and ready for bed.
Do Not Disturb
Switch this on if you want to get a good night’s sleep. Seriously.
If I am worried about anything at work, at home or in my personal life I write how I feel about it before I go to sleep. Getting it down on paper really helps to just park it for the night. Trust me, it works!
