It’s always harder to fall asleep at this time of the year ,mainly due to the excitement and stress that comes with Christmas. Getting a good nights sleep is definitely a good idea .
This might sound a little bit strange, but sometimes it’s good to get out of bed and go get a drink of water before hopping back into bed, as this might help you settle when you couldn’t before. This won’t work for everyone, but it might be worth a try.
Put The Phone Down
This may be difficult, but looking at your phone is not helping you sleep. The blue lights are playing havoc with your mind. It’s best to put the phone down at night, as you’ll be able to relax which should help you settle faster. I still struggle with this, but I’m slowly getting better. I’m already seeing benefits, so it definitely works.
I’ve never tried this before, but apparently they work really well. You spray a little bit on your pillow and the scent is really calming, which instantly makes you sleepy. These are usually scented with Lavender, as that is known to be the most effective. A good one of these to try is the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray which is £16
Read a Book
Sometimes reading a book is an easier way to drift off quickly, It’s also a lot better than staring at screens all night. I find that reading is a great way to switch off.
This post also marks the end of blogmas, which is a little crazy, as I can’t believe I actually started it never mind finish the whole thing! A big congratulations to everyone else who attempted blogmas! If you missed the start of Blogmas, here is my November Favourites; which kicked everything off!
What helps you sleep better at night?
Thank you for reading and Merry Christmas Eve!
