5 Tips To Get A Good Night's Sleep

5 Tips To Get A Good Night's Sleep
One of the most infuriating, tense situations to experience is not being able to get a good nights sleep, we've all been there. I used to suffer with insomnia and sometimes occasionally still do so I know all the tricks in the book that work/don't. Today I wanted to share with y'all some tips of my own that I find work wonders on getting you that good night's sleep.

You won't be relying on coffee in the morning, I promise.

1. Snuggle In Cosy Comfort: For me, being comfortable in bed is an essential for a good night's sleep. I like to change my bedding once or twice a week just to keep it feeling and smelling fresh. I also like to fluff up my pillows every single time I make my bed as there is nothing worse than sleeping on flat pillows.

2. The Hour Before: An hour or so before you decide on going to bed make yourself some chamomile or any kind of herbal tea. Chamomile is great for calming you down, I always find if I have a cup of this my mind feels a lot more fresh and let's face it nothing beats a good cup of tea.

3. Get a Routine: Following from tip 2. Get yourself a bedtime routine that way your body will get prepared for going to sleep. I usually come off my laptop, make a hot drink, light some candles, clean my teeth than read either a book or a magazine. That way my mind is relaxed.

4. Plan Ahead: Sometimes a lot of us can't get to sleep because we find ourselves worrying or thinking about something. I always like to make sure I know what I am wearing the next day, what I am doing and write a list on things that need done. This way my brain is relaxed and not thinking about what needs done tomorrow.

5. Clear Your Mind: Maybe you have an exam tomorrow or a very nerve-racking interview whatever it is if I am feeling worried I like to take my mind of it by reading a book, listen to some music or even though a lot of people don't recommend it I like to scroll through Twitter on my phone, just do things that take your mind off the day ahead.

  8. It's so important to have a routine that really helps you unwind. Properly cleansing and using a facial oil makes me feel really relaxed, maybe with a little extra massaging it in to really unwind!

  10. This is very good advise. I like listening to music to relax me before bed like movie soundtracks and I spray lavender on my pillows.

  11. I've been struggling to nod off lately, I find it hard clearing my head. Like you said, everyone advises no laptop / phone before bed but I watch my tv / films on my laptop and have no time to read at the moment so in-between books... Whats a girl meant to do ?!

    Planning ahead is something I am not very good at doing, but you're right would stop some of those thoughts running my calm !

  16. The hour before you sleep is so important, I think! I try to have everything switched off and just read/relax, unload whatever's on my mind onto a list or something! xx
