THP Tid Bits: My Tips For A Good Night's Sleep
I get my girls to sleep at 8pm but still find myself wide awake and staring at the ceiling at 11pm. I realize my beloved wine can sometimes relax you into a sweet slumber, but those sugars don’t help keep you asleep! And I have been conscious about picking and choosing when I indulge. But my ‘sleep issue’ became more common and I started to do some research on how I could log a good night’s sleep that leaves me feeling rested and ready to tackle the day!
I have become a religious SOM drinker. It’s all natural, drug-free, and non habit-forming. I prefer the sugar free formula and it’s the first ‘sleep aid’ that I believe in.
I had been hearing a lot about the magic a weighted blanket can bring to your life and your sleep. My friend, Sophia, gave it such high praise that I immediately ordered one on Amazon. And...IT IS AWESOME. I chose this one.
I swear by Slip products and the sleep mask was my first love. It’s lightweight and even offers anti-aging benefits. And there’s something about the soft mask that makes me feel like I’m on vacation! What more can we ask for!?
I’m guilty of the 3am insta spiral like everyone else, but I have made a conscious decision to not busy myself with my phone if I happen to wake up in the middle of the night. It was a tough habit to break, but if I do find myself awake at 3am I go back to sleep much faster if I zen out and keep my brain from getting wound up.
I hope that some of these tricks help bring you a better night’s sleep! I know how much they have worked for me!
