Sleep? What is this thing you speak of? I haven’t had a decent amount of shut-eye for months now, owing to the small matter of a launching a new business. Sure, I could make things easier for myself if I closed my laptop before midnight and stopped scrolling through Instagram in bed but you know, old habits die hard.
Under normal circumstances, my bedroom is my sanctuary but I have had so many restless nights recently that it’s a relief when the sun comes up. I can legitimately leave my bed and tackle my to-do list – who even am I? I know it won’t be like this forever but I have got to take action and make some changes because I’m literally running out of gas!
I know I am not alone because it’s such a busy month as children go back to school and the nights draw in. As luck would have it the Neom Big Sleep Challenge (#NeomBigSleep) has come along at exactly the right time.
I have been sent some products to try from the Scent to Sleep range and they are divine. Made with organic ingredients and infused with essential oils this trio is a real treat. Neom have set themselves a mission to ensure we all get more sleep and officially launch their Big Sleep Challenge on September 28th. There are exclusive offers on these products and you can get some really helpful tips on wellbeing and sleep from their sleep expert Anandi.
Rituals and routines that promote sleep
September is a great month for making resolutions and creating habits that stick, I suppose it’s a throwback to our school days. This year it has almost passed me by but I’m just in time to lay down some routines that will help me to relax and unwind in the months ahead.
For me it’s all about rituals, is there anything better than a bath, clean pjs and fresh bed linen? Obviously this isn’t possible every night unless you live in a hotel (!) However, a quick spritz of this pillow mist and a little hand massage followed by a guided meditation app and blissful sleep might just be within reach.
Do you have any fail-safe tips for a restful night?
