Reset Your Restfulness Routine With Rescue Night® ** WIN **

I think it’s safe to say that anyone who knows me, and certainly anyone who follows me on social media, will be aware of my battle with insomnia, something I have struggled with my whole life. I genuinely can’t remember a time and although you’d think that having four children would be enough to exhaust anyone enough to sleep at night, when my head hits that pillow you can guarantee I’ll still be trying to fall asleep in the early hours. I’ve tried everything over the years from prescription drugs to lavender sprays, and although some have helped in the short term, in the long term I always end up in the same situation – wide away at 3am.

I know that one of the biggest issues for me is not being able to switch off when I get in bed, be that feeling stressed over deadlines with work, worrying about things I need to remember for the kids, or niggling worries creeping in and raising my anxiety levels. I’m also very guilty of lying away scrolling through my phone and checking my social media, never really allowing myself to just switch off, relax, and fall asleep naturally.

Reset your restfulness routine

Ahead of National Sleep Awareness Week and World Sleep Day in March, Rescue Night® have teamed up with The Stress Management Society to put together a restfulness routine for those struggling to get enough shut eye which, according to The Great British Bedtime Survey, is around 45% due to hectic lifestyles! They have some fantastic tips to help those, like me, who are struggling.

* Steer clear of caffeinated beverages and nicotine

* Ban ALL electronics (laptops, televisions, phones). Electronic devices and gadgets in the bedroom interfere with your body’s natural electrical flow even when they are switched off, so banish as many of them as possible.

* Avoid exercise before going to bed as it raises both your heart rate and your core body temperature.

* Be intimate with your partner – although this raises your temperature, it actually releases oxytocin and relaxing endorphins

You can also try some physical self-help techniques:

* With a deep breath in, raise the shoulders towards the ears and hold them raised for a few seconds (you will be able to feel the tensions that may be accumulating in the shoulders), now take a long slow breath out and drop the shoulders down. Repeat this several times.

* Place the fingers of both hands at the base of your skull; apply slow circular pressures from the base of the skull to the base of the neck.

* Now close your eyes and relax the muscle of the face. Be aware of your eye muscles, your jaw and your forehead. Place the fingers of both hands on each side of the temples and slowly massage in a circular motion. Repeat several times.

* Finish by cupping your hands over your eyes and holding for several seconds. This helps to release tension and tightness in the face.

So taking all of these tips on board, combined with Rescue Night® drops, sprays and liquid melts, I have been putting this advice into practice and trying to re-establish a more restful routine before bed.

Rescue Night®

I have always been a big fan of Rescue Remedy® and the Night range didn’t disappoint. Combining the original Rescue® formula with Bach Original Flower Remedies, White Chestnut, these flower essences combine to help switch off the mind from unwanted and receptive thoughts.  Available as drops, sprays and liquid melts, I found the spray to be the easiest for me and actually, it tastes lovely!

Of course establishing a new routine takes time but, for the last few weeks of using Rescue Night®  I have seen a noticeable difference in the time it tsars for me to get to sleep. As well as that I have found I have slept far more soundly once I am actually asleep, waking less and dropping back off again far easier. With the Rescue Night®  range starting at £8.49 it feels like a small price to pay for such a huge difference to my sleep routine!

For more information about the range visit www.rescueremedy.co.uk

WIN!!

    Because the standard advice about getting to sleep doesn’t work (whoever came up with that garbage about not using electronics before bed obviously never had to distract themselves from a bout of crippling anxiety before they could fall asleep).

  36. Abigail Cullen
