180 Days of Selfcare: Sleep


Now I am going to be honest with you guys, I am really not good at most of the steps they told us to try this week. Some nights I can get to sleep, and even sleep in a little bit most of the time not so much, so I did try to do the steps each day this week, some with better results than others. 

Having a dark room has always been a must for me, but I have a really hard time sleeping without a background noise. For me, I use a fan year round. Without it the room is just too quiet! I don’t know how people do it. I found having a small snack and drinking a cup of water really helped me get into a easier sleep. I tried not to eat right before bed to keep myself from getting heartburn but about an hour before I went to bed I had a small bowl of cereal or yogurt and it really helped! I have also found things with cinnamon to help make you sleepy, or at least me. 

Ok…..the truth comes out here…..Can’t do the not be on your phone or devices two hours before your bedtime, I am a big big nighttime reader and I usually do it on my phone or kindle. So I failed big time there. 

The days I got extra sleep I definitely had more energy and didn’t have as big as a slump in the day, it took a couple days of extra sleep to get there though. I will definitely be trying these techniques over the next few weeks to help get me on a better sleep schedule. How about you? Will you be trying some extra sleeping techniques to try over the next week?
