How to Get a Great Night’s Sleep

I love sleep more than anything, but sadly like most great things it doesn’t come easy — I usually find it really hard to get to sleep. I thought I would share with you some tips for how I get a great night’s sleep.

  1. I don’t eat an hour or two before I plan to go to bed (this also includes drinking tea, otherwise I’m up and down in the night going to the toilet!). A small caveat to this rule is if I’m feeling a teenie bit peckish or it’s been a bad day… a little bit of chocolate or a truffle won’t do too much harm right?!

  2. I love having a bath to relax and shut off from the day. As an extra treat if I want to really relax I use This Works bath salts or the Neal’s Yard aromatic foaming bath. I really need to try out the Neal’s Yard lavender bath salts too as they smell AMAZING!!!

  3. I like to light my This Works Deep Sleep candle 20 minutes before I go to sleep while I read in bed. It sets such a nice mood and makes the room smell of lavender.

  4. I really like to read my Calm book in bed to wind down. It’s quite different from your normal story book and I highly recommend it!

  5. When I’m tucking into bed a few sprays of the This Works Deep Sleep pillow spray is an absolute must! It relaxes you so quickly allowing you to drift off nice and easily for a perfect deep sleep.

  6. If my mind is still wandering after I close my eyes and I can’t shut off then I sometimes pull up the Spotify sleep playlist that I play through my Sonos, nice and quietly, for some beautiful relaxing background music. I’m usually asleep after the first track or two!
