A lot of people complain about insomnia and my friends often complain because I am so chirpy in the morning but its because I’ve had my 8 hours of beauty sleep and by 9am I am refreshed and ready to start my day. I’ve recently started a new job that has me getting up at 5am and not getting home till 11 pm depending on my shifts so creating a good sleep balance is really important to me at the moment. I used to suffer from sleep in the past but lately I have started getting good hours sleep and been waking up refreshed and motivated, so I thought I would share some sleep secrets with all my lovely readers.
- Unwind in the evenings – I like to have a 5 minute skin massage with coconut oil and do my whole facial routine before bed and drink some hot chocolate or herbal tea to calm my mind.
- Use Lavender products to help you relax – I love the works deep sleep pillow spray and a few drops of lavender oil on my pillow. My all time favourite product is by Decleor but that can get pretty pricey so I’m always looking for more budget friendly options if you guys know of any?
- DO NOT – take your phone to your bed, although I can be guilty of this I mean who doesn’t love a late night Facebook scroll, it’s the worst thing you could do. Leave it on a side, it’s bad for your eyes and mind at bedtime.
- Make a list – of things you want to do in the morning, so you wake up motivated. If I’m working a late shift I will plan to get up early and go for a run, this really helps me nod off to sleep knowing Iv’e got plans for the next day.
