I tend to fall asleep fairly fast but I wake easily and I wake early. I have found over the years it comes and goes with my hormone cycle (I don’t have ovaries but when it is time for my insertion of bio-identical hormones my lack of sleep usually my first indicator it’s time!). Also, sleep also is impacted by my busy mind and stress.
Without a good night’s sleep my body aches more, I’m more likely to over eat, I’m grumpy and I need more caffeine than I should.
My favorite tips and tricks for a good sleep are:
💤 limit caffeine after 2pm
💤 limit myself to 2 glasses of wine
💤not too heavy of a dinner
💤a long bath
💤evening walks are a must
💤getting 12-15k steps per day
💤reading something light and fun before bed
💤limit crime TV or adrenaline rushing shows
💤vetiver, clary sage, juniper berry, cedarwood, lavender, balance, breathe, bergamot, Roman Chamomile and frankincense are good choices.
I usually choose 1-2 from the above list and add them to my diffuser that is next to my bed. I change it up every few days or when my diffuser is empty
Oh, and I am a huge believer in passionflower and L-theanine which happen to be in the serenity softgels.
