‘Cause we all need this-sleep!

And especially during the holidays!! When sleeping in has potential!

I have a variety of things that I do to start my sleep journey (reading, lavender scented, silk eye patch, bedtime yoga, etc.) but unfortunately, I’m a Netflix binger, too, so I do still have my TV in my room. And so my room is not the oasis that it could be…

Here is a great tip for quick falling asleep:

What helps me:

  1. Puzzling (just finished this Ravensburger one)
  2. Reading (currently reading An Echo in the Bone Outlander #7 by the wonderful Diana Gabaldon)
  3. Not watching Sabrina or other scary things (Penny Dreadful) right before I fall asleep
  4. bedtime yoga with Tara Stiles or Adriene
  5. Lavender hand cream by L’Occitane
  6. Silky eye patch
  7. A little bit of fresh air in the room and if it’s a noisy summer night or flippin cold, I will shut the window.
  8. Foot cream by AVEDA with a quick foot massage
  9. Bedtime meditation by the app Simple Habit
  10. Breathing slowly

And some tips from the Mayo Clinic

What helps you?  Let me know what you do and good luck with your sleep!
