Getting a good night’s sleep after having kids becomes a lot harder, however with so much going on in our everyday life now are you struggling to get a good sleep?
I am the first to admit my sleep pattern can be a bit all over the place and when I do finally get into bed, it can take me ages to get to sleep.
So taking children out of the equation, what can you do to get a good night’s sleep?
- Start with a good mattress – First things first, you need to have a good mattress. You could be ready for a good sleep however it is not going to happen when you are being poked my a dodgy mattress spring or feeling like you are lying on the floor. We are huge fans of our Simba mattress since reviewing it and you can even get £50 off using this link.
- Settle into a routine – This doesn’t mean like your children getting into bed at a certain time every night! However settle into a similar routine, so bed between 10-10.30 and wake up times around the same time every day, including weekends. This helps your body to get into its own natural body clock.
- Turn off the tech! – I know this is a simple one but probably one we are all guilty off, how many times have you got into bed and just checked your social media?! Take your time away from the screen for 30 minutes to an hour to just relax and take a breather.
- Unwind – Have a lovely soak in the bath, clean bedding and even try out this sleep spray from Simba. It has a beautiful aroma to it, which helps you to unwind and fall into a relaxing sleep. Made with 100% essential oils such as lavender and orange, it really does help you feel that little bit more chilled.
- Watch your food and drink intake – Getting some sleep when you have just had a big meal intake or drunk lots of caffeine is just never going to work. Avoid eating too late and try to not have too much caffeine after 6. Also during the day try to ensure you are drinking plenty of water as this is a great natural way to help your body balance out throughout the day which helps into the evening.
I know that it is not easy to unwind and get a good night’s sleep however just little changes can make a big difference!
What is your sleep pattern like?
