#WakeUpReady with Kalms – giveaway!

An estimated one in three people in the UK suffer with poor sleep, myself included. A good nights sleep is so important for health, including immunity, emotional and psychological well being, and considering that I get just a couple of hours sleep per night, it’s no wonder that my health, and mood, has suffered in recent years.

I used to be one of those people who could fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow, back when I was younger, before children and the responsibilities of adulthood came along. In my early twenties I struggled with my first real bout of insomnia and it was physically, and emotionally, draining. Insomnia has repeatedly plagued me over the last decade and yet never as badly as it has in recent years. Due to health worries, nerve damage, the onset of tinnitus and four children to worry about, I am lucky if I get even three hours sleep each night.

It’s always the case that just as I fall asleep, the alarm goes off and it’s time to get up, and I can’t even tell you the last time that I actually woke up ready. I am guilty of pressing the snooze button as many times as I can get away with, each ten minutes sinking back into the most amazing sleep, waking more and more drained with each new alarm.

Not getting enough good quality sleep can leave you feeling tired, low in energy and irritable – something whih you only need to ask my children about when I’m biting their heads off each morning.

When Kalms offered me a #wakeupready goody bag to help me wake  feeling more refreshed each morning, I was very keen to try out the products. Firstly I took advantage of the opportunity for a long soak in the bath, using the Baylis & Harding Lavender bath foam, which was lovely and relaxing.

I then enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate drink from Whittards before taking myself off to bed. Also included was the Moleskine journal to jot down all of my thoughts and worries as I attempted to drift off. I often lie awake at night worrying about the following day, whether Lewis has his PE kit ready, whether Eva will go into school without crying, whether Harry and Megan need a packed lunch for nursery that day. I often plot blog posts in my head, coming up with all of my best ideas at three in the morning, unable to go back to sleep for fear of forgetting them. And so jotting them down in a notebook, on my bedside table, really did help.

In the morning I was woken by the Lumie Bodyclock, a specially designed clock which wakes you by emulating a gradual sunrise, aimed to wake you as naturally as possible as opposed to an intrusive alarm. Bodyclock is by far a more refreshing way to wake up. It’s effective for healthy sleep, sports training, energy at work, and a useful complement to a light box in treating SAD, something which I suffer from through the winter months.

Kalms Night are offering one of my readers the chance to win a #wakeupready goody bag of their own, worth over £100.

To enter simply enter via the link below, the winner will be notified via email on the 19th March.

Good Luck!

    My best tip for a good sleep is to send the baby to his grandparents 😉

      Hahah I agree! xx

    I find having a completely dark room means I sleep a lot better and for longer.

    My best tip is to have no tech in the bedroom at all. No Tv and an old fashioned alarm clock rather than using the alarm on your phone.

      February 27, 2017 / 2:51 pm

      I am very guilty of looking at my phone in bed! xx

      I struggle to get a good nights sleep too. I like to unwinde before bed with a good book. I find I sleep better in the dark but also in silence which don’t help when my husband is such a loud snorer.

    I’ve struggled with insomnia on and off over the years and I’m suffering a particular bad case at the moment.

    Listening to relaxing sounds as I try to sleep helps me to block out worrisome thoughts and enables me to be calm and imagine I’m on a beach, snuggly and warm in a log cabin with a roaring fire or relaxing in a spa.

    I have insomnia as well and it is a struggle to have good quality sleep. For me what helps is making sure the room is completely dark and free from noise as I am easily distracted. Going to bed at a reasonable time and letting my body wake up when it is ready also helps! oh and I entered x

    The only thing that works for me is to try and stick to a routine, go to bed and get up at the same time (no laying in😥) stop all technology activities by 9.30, start to wind down (I find grooming the dogs is quite soporific) and have a milky drink. Unfortunately life (kids, work, parties, evening exercise classes…) does tend to get in the way of the best laid plans.

    I do struggle to fall asleep at night, but I find it better if I don’t go on my phone or Ipad before I sleep. Reading a book before I sleep tends to make me sleepy after a while and I can usually fall asleep not too long after puttng my book down.

    I truly believe that everyone has an optimum temperature in which they can achieve their best sleep and it can differ enourmously from one person to the next. You might like a very warm room to sleep in whilst your partner might prefer the windows open and a cool breeze? Make a note of what the temperature was when you wake up from a ‘good’ rest and try to duplicate the conditions to see if it works for you.

    My best tip would be that if you like sleep don’t have children (they have a natural aversion to it) lol. On a serious note what helps me is to write down any worries I have before bed rather than tossing and turning trying to find a solution in case I forget by morning. It helps me to drift off safe in the knowledge that my foggy brain doesn’t need to retain the information while I sleep as it’s all on paper and can be dealt with the next day. Also I think it’s a good idea to have some type of air flow. I personally like to leave my window open a little, I am warm enough under the duvet but have a nice constant flow of fresh air.

    Just have children 🙂 my hubby and I sleep soooo well as we are both knackered with a toddler who is always on the go hahaha and we both work all week! I wouldn’t change it for the world though. Thomas is 2.5 years old and very busy hehe.

    Another method that works well is to put some nice scents in with relaxing bubbles in the bath… a glass of wine helps too!

    To be fair, I have always slept well…there was an occasion as a child where my dad was drilling on to the joining wall to my bedroom first thing one morning at the weekend and I slept right through it!
