☁️ How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep ☁️

Can’t sleep? I hear you. This year has been shocking for my sleep. I felt like no matter how much sleep I had, I never felt refreshed in the morning. 😭 It’s interesting because as parents, we often have a sleep routine for our babies to get theme into a good routine, yet a lot of us (myself included) can be a bit relaxed when it comes to a bedtime routine for ourselves. 😴

☁️ Here are my top tips for a sleep routine that works! ☁️

👉 Invest in good quality pillows & bed linen. The key to a relaxing sleep is in the quality of your pillow and linen. We’ve been using the new Adairs bamboo pillow and linen range and I’ve never had a better nights sleep. They are soft, breathable and hypoallergenic – need I say more?

👉 Read instead of scrolling social media or the news. Choose a book to read instead of scrolling on your phone. Your brain is much more likely to feel sleepy instead of wired if you swap your phone for a good book!

👉 Write down worries and reminders for the next day. Before you go to bed, make sure you write down your worries and reminders for the next day. It’s one less thing you have to think and worry about overnight so you can relax easier.

👉 Write three things in a gratitude journal. Keep a gratitude journal next to your bed and make it a ritual to write down three things you are grateful for every day. Gratitude is the best way to attract more positivity in your life.

👉 Use lavender essential oil. Pop a few drops of lavender essential oil in a humidifier and keep next to your bed overnight for a better nights sleep. Lavender is my go-to oil for dream time and a relaxing bath!
