I have always been one for a bedtime routine, yes even as an adult. No matter how tired I am, some nights it can take me a little while to fall asleep. This has improved since I started regular exercise but some nights I just can’t drift off to the land of nod!
After years of trying, I have now got myself into a good bedtime routine. Here are a few of my bedtime secrets to help me relax and de-stress for a good nights sleep.
* A warm shower (maybe a bath if I have the energy after a day with the kid)
* A good skincare routine
* A mug of Camomile tea
* Lavender oil on a muslin cloth hung over headboard
* Sleep Eye Mask
I was recently sent a Spacemask to try and review; from what I have read about Spacemasks, this product sounds perfect for me and my bedtime routine.
Since my second pregnancy I struggle a lot with my sinuses and periodically suffer with acute sinusitis, which is no fun anyway let alone when running around after two kids every day. I usually use a cold migraine pad (I suffer from migraines too!) to soothe my head and eye area; before trying the Spacemask I had never thought to use a heat pad on that area. One afternoon my plan of using the Spacemask at bedtime went out the window as I decided to use it for an afternoon nap (I struggle to fall asleep in the day as I can never switch off) so that’s when I gave my Spacemask a try.
Spacemask is a self-heating eye mask, which is activated when removed from it’s little pouch. The mask unfolds and has a little loop on each side that goes behind your ears to secure the mask over your eyes.
Not long after wearing you can feel the heat from the mask, as oxygen molecules activate the iron particular’s to create natural heat through the mask. The calming scent of Jasmine transported me back to my happy place in Cyprus, where my favourite plant in my Nene’s garden would be where I would sit and make jasmine flower chains for my Dede to hang in his car, a scent that always relaxes and soothes me to this day.
I was able to completely relax and feel the tension in my forehead and eye area completely disappear, feeling stress free and unaware that after nearly 20 minutes of laying there I relaxed into a great half an hour power nap and felt amazing when I woke up.
I will 100% be purchasing Spacemasks to use when I’m suffering from sinus tension or struggling to switch off at bed time.. something so simple has really helped me complete my bedtime routine.
I will be purchasing mine on my next payday direct from Spacemasks where you can get 5 in a box for £15 and I will be taking some on my next holiday for the plane journeys…bliss!
