A Good Nights Sleep

There are many things in this world that I love, one of them being my bed. Nothing is better than laying down on fresh sheets and a cozy comforter while stretching out after a long day of hard work. We all sleep...duhhh....but did you know that in order to get a completely restful nights sleep there are a few things that you should and should not do at certain times before hittin the hay? Follow this little guideline and I guarantee you will get a much better sleep than you did last night.
 
 
 
Other Tips:
 
-Try having a cup of green or chamomile tea after dinner
-Turn off the tv! The noise and the light both effect your sleep tremendously
-Try deep breathing. I know it sounds silly but for some people it really helps them relax. Learn how to do deep breathing HERE
-Doing work in bed is a big no no. There are only 2 things that you should be doing in your bed on a regular basis, and one of them is sleeping....
-Keep a pen and pad on your night stand. Try to write out whatever is on your mind before laying down to help clear your head
-A dark and cool room is the ideal condition for sleep, try turning down the thermostat
-Try to stick to a sleep schedule. I know that this is often hard to do but try to make it a habit of going to bed and waking up around the same time as often as possible

What helps you catch some zzzz's? Are you a light or a deep sleeper?

    1. Thanks girl! Seriously try the deep breathing one night if you can't fall asleep and let me know what you think.

  3. I definitely need my cool room and blackout curtains. I also started using essential oils on my feet at night, Vetiver is the -ish. I love that stuff and swear I can tell a difference when I use it and when I don't!

  6. Great tips! I find I need to be away from electronics awhile before I go to bed. It really helps!

    1. Doesn't it!? You don't realize how much it impacts your sleep until you go a night minus the electronics.
