So I’m working on all areas of my health and fitness but sleep is the one area that eludes me. Not that I can’t sleep, mind. I just don’t go to bed early enough. There’s always just so much to do and then before I know it, it’s midnight already…where did the last two hours go?
So in a bid to make sleepy time more attractive and make the most of the quality of what (little) sleep I actually do get, I’ve been turning to these little helpers, and boy, have they made a difference.
Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts
I’m not really a bath person. By the time I’ve filled the bath, got the temperature right and got in, I’m bored already. Three minutes max and I’m impatient to get out and get on with things. So I’m delighted to say the Himalayan Detox Salts have managed to buck that trend. The most inviting smell, (I’m talking the most luxurious spa you’ve ever been in), super relaxing…the fact that they’re pinker than pink might just help too! Just throwing a handful into the water starts to unwind me and by the time I’m out of the bath, I’m ready for bed and the deepest sleep ever.
That these two small bottles are going to make a difference to my sleep and energy levels? Yup, I was sceptical too, but hear me out. Take the Sleep Potion one before bed and you’ll be off in the land of nod before you can say sheep, waking up refreshed and ready for the day. And if you’ve got a tough one ahead of you, the Awake Potion gives you that mental zing that makes you feel you can tackle anything the day might throw at you. Combine the two and watch people quake in their shoes as you look their way! And the fact that they sound like something out of Sleeping Beauty (or any other Grimm’s Fairy Tale you care to mention) just makes me love them even more.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
Don’t you just love it when a thing literally does what it says on the tin? Just a couple of sprays of this on my pillow and the lavender aromas literally waft me into the land of nod, no matter how many “to-do” lists I may have jiggling around in my brain.
Insomnia? Pah! Take that, and that and that!
