The elusive full nights uninterrupted sleep, how I miss you. It feels like a long, long time since we have been friends. It’s not you that’s to blame. Pregnancy, babies, reflux, worries and insomnia have all played a part at varying times. Having a two year old that still doesn’t sleep is hindering our reunion but I can see you in my hopefully not too distant future. I can’t wait!
Dreaming of sleep I’ve come up with my essentials that I would need to catch up with my old friend.
Five essentials for a sound sleep
- A comfy mattress and fresh bedding. There’s nothing better than climbing into a comfy, clean and fresh bed.
- Dark. It needs to be dark with no sun waking me up in the morning.
- Quiet. No noise!
- Wind down time. Reading a book, having a bath and no screen time, all help if I’m feeling stressed.
- A clutter free bedroom. Having just moved we are in the process of refreshing our bedroom.
Having quiet is probably top of my list for a good nights sleep. Mattress Next Day have done #ASoundSleep survey showing how sound affects peoples sleep. I definitely wouldn’t be able to sleep anywhere near the grandmother with the loudest snore.
