It’s the number one complaint-fatigue. It can stem from everything from eating wrong, illness, stress and more. There are many things we can do NATURALLY to help us unwind, relax, slow down and sleep better! Better yet, we can wake up looking beautiful and refreshed. Well at least more refreshed anyway.
It starts with making some simple changes.
1- Change your pillow cases! They collect dirt, left over make-up and sweat- not great for skin to rest on all night. Plus clean ones just feel better anyway.
2- Put lavender essential oil and a few night time/relaxing blends on night table along with a sachet to put drops on before bed (or use a diffuser). Essential oils have proven therapeutic effects. Try a pillow mist too!
4- Take a bath with products that are scented to help you relax like seaweed and arnica foaming bath… amazing for weary muscles… or aromatic foaming bath with an herbal infusion to help you relax and unwind.
5- Open the windows for 10 minutes before bed to air out stuffy rooms.
6- Add 10 minutes of light stretching/yoga before bed to relax your muscles and have some quiet time too.
7- Do some deep breathing exercises to move that air in your lungs and relax your whole body. In for 6, hold for 3 , out for 6 or whichever counts feel right for you.
8- If you like tea, get a night time or relaxing blend and sip while reading before bed..
9- Turn all lights off, including chargers, alarm clocks, etc for a completely dark tranquil room
10- Move your bedtime up a little minutes earlier. You’ll thank yourself in the morning. Even 10-15 minutes a night extra can make a difference daily and over the course of a week, that’s a whole hour more. Hey why not?!
