What I’m Feeling Friday – Sleep

These days, there is nothing I’m feeling more than sleep. I don’t get enough of it. There is always too much going on in this brain of mine. So you know I am so happy that it’s about to be time to Fall back! Yes!!! You know that hour we complained about losing in the Spring, it’s making a comeback. I can SO use that hour back. This Sunday, November 2nd, I’ll be ready!

I plan to get myself ready to enjoy that extra hour of sleep. I usually just let it creep up on me. Nope. Not this year. I’m preparing and making plans to welcome my hour back! I need some good sleep, y’all and I’m going to get it.

Once I get the kids down for the night, it’s going to be mamas turn. I think I’ll start with a nice relaxing bath. I have a bunch of bath bombs that I don’t use enough. They will be making an appearance this weekend.

I have candles like this one by Le Feu de L’eau Le Vert Candle ($62) lining my bathtub. They smell awesome and really help me to calm down and relax.

I used to keep some awesome body butters and balms like this one by Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Body Balm ($32) . I always woke up feeling smooth. I’m so sporadic now. It’s so important to take care of our skin. I always remind myself that it’s my largest organ. When I remember that, it’s easy to treat it well.

It’s just as comfortable as it used to be. I could use a bed like this one by Hästens Beds to help me sleep like a queen! This bed has a cool ventilation system that eliminates moisture and let’s fresh air in. Sounds like some good sleep to me!

How many times have we heard about warm milk to help you sleep? Some people swear by it.

The goal is to create a relaxing routine and put it into practice. Being deliberate and consistent will help this mama get some much needed good sleep!

Any can’t miss tips for getting a good nights sleep? Are you looking forward to getting your hour back?
