How I've Been Getting a Good Night's Sleep

No comments
Sleeping is not something I ever really struggled with but as I've gotten older and my anxiety has gotten worse, my sleeping patterns haven't been that great. It takes me forever to fall asleep and then I'm up at all hours of the night and exhausted the next day.

I've been very into wellness lately and reading up more on sleep so it's become more important to me than ever. There have been a few different products and techniques that have not only been helping me get more sleep but more peaceful sleep and better wellness all around.

Taking a few minutes to do these things each night and have helped me calm down a lot before heading to bed each night.

For some of the things mentioned, I'm going to do separate posts on where I review them in detail and give me thoughts.

Side note, I know I did a post on this last year but these are a few different techniques that have been helping me recently. Oil diffusing, reading, and a sleep mask still help greatly!



Skincare Routine

This sounds so weird but I promise, it's been helping. Every night I've been taking some time for myself to decompress before bed. That consists of deep cleaning my face, applying oils and moisturizers and using a Jade Roller. Those few minutes to myself, to take care of myself are essential to winding down and calming me for a good rest.

Meditation

I cannot wait to give you a full review on my meditation habits but for the past few months I've been using Headspace and it's almost the only way I could fall asleep. It has been so helpful in helping my fall asleep and stays asleep. I pair it with my airpods and it helps me fall into a really deep sleep.

CBD 

There is a post coming on this as well but I've been using a few different CBD products over the past few months, mostly for my anxiety but it has nice sleep benefits too. I use the Sunday Scaries gummies and the Charlotte's Web Hemp Oil; the gummies have been a total lifesaver in helping me calm myself down enough to get to sleep. I never want to be without CBD again... it has changed my sleeping and anxiety forever. 

KlovaSleep Patch

I stumbled across this brand of sleep patches on Nordstrom's website a while ago and was very intrigued by them. After one use I was hooked! It's basically like taking a melatonin pill but it's in patch form. I don't use it every night because I don't want to have to rely on it but sometimes when I feel like I won't be able to sleep, I'll use it. It doesn't make me feel drowsy like typical melatonin but just slowly makes me fall asleep without even realizing it. One thing I'll say is that they leave a mark on your skin, like some of the stickiness from the back of the patch gets left on your skin. It eventually comes off but it's just worth mentioning. 

What are some of the ways you get a good nights sleep?
