Insomnia 101

Sleep is so important to our health. It allows our bodies to repair and our brains to process information. Lack of sleep can lead to forgetfulness, irritability and general feelings of low mood as well as affecting us physically.

As a bit of an insomniac myself, the struggle is real in the quest of catching some Zs.

Make sure you prioritise sleep and, if me, you find it difficult, having a bedtime routine helps. Try leaving the phone down for about an hour before sleep (hard, I know, but at least even try to limit it). I personally find lighting some candles, moisturizing and reading a book before bed helps.

I find the 2 products below help create a deeper, less disturbed sleep and give me a gentle push to the land of nod….This Works ‘deep sleep pillow spray’ €22 and Lush ‘sleepy body lotion’ approx €19. Both available online

Also meditation is really good. I like the calm app. Find what works for you 😊
