Tips for a good night sleep!

As much as we all like to think that a good skincare routine is the key to looking your best, its not always the answer! You can try all the lotions and potions out there but to look fresh faced and glowing you need to have a decent nights sleep.
I do struggle to sleep some nights so I thought I would share some of my tips that help me to get a good nights sleep!

1.    Have a hot drink before you go to bed
This has really worked for me! I have started drinking Horlicks which says is for night time and helps to aid sleep, and it has really helped me to have a decent sleep! I normal have half a mug around 1 hour before I go to bed.

2.    Try not to go on your phone/laptop 2-3 hours before you go to bed
I hold my hands up and admit I am really bad at this, a few weeks back I was really struggling to sleep so I decided to try turning my laptop off at 8 so that I had at least 2-3 hours before I go to sleep without looking at a screen, I honestly can't tell you how much I benefited from doing this! I know bloggers find it hard with all the chats going on but maybe try a few times a week just turning everything off and seeing if it helps!

3.    Read a book
Like I said above I have been turning my laptop off and instead of spending the time I would normally on the internet I have been swapping it for reading a book, it is a brilliant way to wind down and just relax in the evening!

4.    Have a warm bath or shower
Having a warm bath helps relax you and is a good way to wind down before bed, for some people having a shower can make them more awake so just do what you think is best!


Have you tried any of these tips before? Do you have problems sleeping? Let me know your tips and tricks below!

  1. I always have a mug of warm milk or peanut hottie before bed and find it helps to relax my mind. Unfortunately, I'm the worst for watching films/being on my phone so never have chance to properly wind down. The last few weeks my sleep pattern has been awful - I'm so glad for this long weekend :)

    1. Oh I have never heard of a peanut hottie before? I am always on my phone and am trying to get into the habit of turning electronics off early!

  2. I really hope I can use those tips. I am already setting a bad example because its 11:40PM New York time and I am still up on my computer. A tip for not going on the internet is using the computer app called Self Control. It is an app that will block websites that you want it to up to 24 hours. Even if you delete the app, the websites don't unblock themselves until the time is up. I find this helps me with my homework a lot.
