Ways To Enhance Your Sleep

Posted in Lifestyle

My sleeping pattern is insanely bad, during the week I tend to sleep no more than seven hours, with most nights sitting at around six to six and a half hours. Then I go and have a bank of sleep at the weekend to cover what I’ve missed. I do get heavily distracted during the week and struggle to take myself to bed but when I do it takes me a long time to fall asleep. Here are some of the best ways to help enhance your sleep:

Sleepex*- I’ve never tried sleeping pills as I don’t feel my sleeping problems are that bad but the new Jodie Marsh range of tablets includes Sleepex.  The tablets are specially formatulated with a combination of ingredients including hops which support normal sleep patterns and magnesium which contributes to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue both of which can be made worse by a lack of sleep. The tablets are only £9.99 and you take 2 capsules about half an hour before sleep and after using them for a week I did find that I was falling asleep much easier.

Sleeping Sprays- A few times I’ve been to hotels and have small bottles of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray included within the rooms so I’ve managed to try this out a few times. The spray is designed to be put on both the pillow and your wrist to enhance your sleep and help you fall asleep quicker and wake up feeling more refreshed. With essential oils used including Lavender, Wild Camomile and Vetivert it’s designed to soothe the body and mind and I found when using it that I was more relaxed which did help me fall asleep a bit quicker than normal.

Fresh bedsheets- Now you know you can’t have fresh bedsheets every single night but I do find that I fall asleep better and quicker when I have nice fresh clean sheets which is why I clean them more often than I used to. There’s nothing better than sinking into a fresh bed after a long day and still smelling the sweet post laundry smell.

    I’ve never tried those sleeping sprays. Having trouble sleeping can be a nightmare x

  • Laura

    i use a sleep spray and an eye mask and I find that the combo really helps me to sleep better xxx

  • LaaLaa

    I have sleep sprays and an eye mask. I’ve tried herbal sleeping tablets before but *touch wood* as of late I’ve got my sleeping pattern back and I agree the fresh, clean sheets ah heaven. Xx

  • I have heard of magnesium for helping with sleep problems, I usually sleep ok unless I am stressing about something. Fresh bedsheets are my most favourite thing for a good nights sleep x

  • Louise

    I definitely need these, I always struggle with sleep but I do find having a busy day helps. I used to suffer from no sleep when I first graduated uni and had no job, but now that I’m in a regular routine it helps x

  • tp keane

    I often suffer from insomina. I use meletonin to help. I must try these also.

  • You just can’t beat fresh bed sheets can you ?

  • I have never tried sleeping sprays, but definitely want to!

  • That sugar skull pillow! I’ve tried loads of things to help me sleep, sprays and balms, but the best thing is deep breathing, but thats not always possible if my brain is over active, I can’t focus. I’ve not heard of the tablets but could be tempted to try!

  • I sleep an average of four hours if that a night and I always feel super drained. A sleep spray sounds like a great idea!

  • My sleep pattern is so bad but I have always been a bad sleeper, doing only 4/5 hours a night! I do have a sleep spray though and without that I would never be able to drift off xx

  • I love fresh bedsheets. There is nothing better than climbing into a fresh bed. Infact thats what im doing tonight!

  • Melanie Edjourian

    OMG I want your unicorn!!!! I use lavender oil on my pillow it works a treat but the spray sounds good 😉

  • I sometimes use ZzzQuil because it’s non-addictive. It works like a charm for me!

  • Great post! Getting a good night’s sleep is so important for our health.

  • Great post, i don’t get enough sleep. I have a lavender spray next to my bed to help me sleep. xx


  • Beautyqueenuk

    Some good points within this post, I find fresh bed sheets and a sleep spray helpful and if that doesnt work, the most boring TV show is put on the tele and I am within seconds x

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    Having a good mattress really helps, as does nice fresh sheets.

  • Hannah Heartss ❄️⛄️

    I needed this post – I’ve been struggling to sleep a lot lately!

  • Ickle Pickle

    I actually make and sell a sleep spray – not only with essential oils but crystal properties too! Kaz x

  • I love a good sleep spray. A new sheets do REALLY help. Ahhhhh.
    I actually can fall asleep so easily, literally ANYWHERE, but the act of actually getting into bed takes a lot more effort!

  • Kira L Curtis

    Got to love fresh bed sheets, it seems like such a simple thing but it always the best feeling! I have never tried sleeping mists but I would like to tried them, but struggling to have a good nights rest myself recently!

  • I love reading a book. For me I definitely have to have a good amount of chill out time pre bed, whether that’s watching tv or spending time doing my blog (yes that’s chill out time with a toddler these days!). x

  • Tanya Brannan

    My sleep is all over the place at the moment! I really need to look at help to sort it out as I am just not resting well at all. I do love fresh bed sheets too, in fact I think I will strip them again today! X

  • Annie Brooks

    Sleep sprays and kalms tablets work for me… also switching off electronics and just reading!

  • Ah you can’t beat the feel of clean sheets! I usually don’t have any problems sleeping tbh, like you it’s mainly just managing to get myself to actually go to bed that’s a challenge… xo

  • I have trouble going to bed lol.. I am always working on something and sometimes forget that I have to sleep and those days where I go to bed supper late my body is screaming at me the next morning. So yes its important to have a good night sleep I am trying to work a little more on my schedule so that I have more time to sleep ideally 7-6 hours of sleep. Falling asleep is not really an issue for me going to sleep is lol…

  • My sleep routine is so varied! It doesn’t help with things like UFC PPV events that are on around 4am

  • I wish I got seven hours sleep…

    For me, it’s my son who steals my sleep but I know that won’t last forever so don’t mind. Having said that as I have anxiety sometimes I will struggle even when bubs is being good. I find listening to my calm app helps, or listening to rain music – I can see why white noise is so effective with babies!! Love fresh sheets too! I have never tried sleeping sprays, but they sound brilliant xxx

    • Oh the calm app sounds interesting, I might have to give that a go x

  • fashion-mommy

    My sleep pattern is horrendous during school holidays as I seem to work during the night.

  • Amy

    Sleeping sprays are the best for helping me get to sleep – especially ones that smell of lavender. I’ve never tried Sleepex before but they sound like quite a good idea for when you really can’t sleep!
