When it comes to sleep, I’ve always been a light sleeper. I know how important a good night’s sleep is and I do my best to make sure my body gets that every day. As with everything, some days are easier than others. We’re pretty active during the day whether we’re on a trip exploring or just me chasing the kids around all day and minor aches and pains have a way of finding me just when I’m ready to settle down for the night. To help ensure I still get that good night’s sleep, I use my homemade lavender bath salts and these easy tips for a better night’s sleep.
On any typical day, I’m carrying my toddler around, lugging groceries, working on projects around the house and in between all that trying to fit in my daily exercise or walks around the neighborhood. All that action can leave me sore and achy so after I get the kids in bed, my new favorite way to unwind is a nice warm bath. I combine that with these other tips and TYLENOL® PM for a good night’s sleep. You can even hover over the TYLENOL® PM in the picture below to shop right from the photo!
TAKE A RELAXING BATH
Truth be told, I just recently started taking baths. The tub was reserved for the kids, I stuck with showers since it’s all I really had time for. A few weeks ago, I took a nice, long, bath and it was so relaxing that I made it a priority to do it a few times a week. That’s quickly turned into an almost nightly thing for me now.
I find it so relaxing to unwind and let the stresses float away. It feels so good on my achy muscles and the lavender smell from the bath salts is just so relaxing. Not to mention, it’s so easy to make your own bath salts. You just need:
- Epsom Salts
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Purple Soap Dye (optional)
In a large bowl, I add 8-10 drops of the essential oils (you can use more or less depending on how heavily scented you want it.) and a few drops of the purple soap dye for a little color. Mix together and pour into a cute jar to display in your bathroom until you’re ready to use them. They even make a great gift idea.
When I get out, I’m truly ready for bed. But not before I turn off the phones.
UNWIND WITH NO SCREEN TIME
This is a big one for me. Especially with the type of work I do. I’m always plugged in. Now I make sure my work is done by a certain time each night and that’s it. Phone, computer, tablet, it’s all off until morning. This was after my bath I can truly head to bed and not be distracted by so many other things going on.
