Using essential oils and aromatherapy as part of your bedtime routine will help you to relax and prepare for sleep and leave you better equipped for the next day’s challenges.

 

Problems nodding off are often associated with being unable to switch off a busy mind, or because of constant awakening suddenly in the middle of the night and just not being able to drift off again.

Giving the mind a break from the pressures and stresses of daily life is vital for your overall health. It is when the cells and tissues of the body are repaired and energy levels are replenished.

When we are asleep, the body uses that time to regulate our hormones and recharge the body’s immune system. This protects us from infection and disease. This is why sleeping badly for a period of time can be so devastating to our health.

Be sure to take a good look at your life to see if there are any underlying causes that may be creating deep-seated anxiety or stress. Tackling these issues can also help eradicate your problems getting all 40 of your winks.
