I am SO glad that I gave Vicks ZzzQuil a shot. It helped when other sleep aids failed me. I really don’t like that “dazed” feeling I get when I take other brands. Yes a good night sleep is important, but it does me no good when I can barely move in the morning! I need to bring my A-game every, single, day and I always want to to feel and look as good as I can.
As a mom, especially, it seems like everyone else’s needs usually come first. It is important to prioritize things in the evening, to set the stage for a restful night and day.
Enjoy some “me” time! It is important to take some “me” time in the evenings before going to bed. How? If you have children, try getting them to bed at least a couple of hours before you plan on turning in for the night. Also prepare the next days lunches, lay out school clothes, etc., before they go to bed. Concentrate on YOU for a couple of hours before hitting the sack!
Don’t eat anything late at night! Food doesn’t have time to settle when you eat shortly before going to bed. If I eat right before I go to bed, I get serious heartburn (and/or an upset stomach), which keeps me awake.
Take a warm bath or shower before bedtime. I know this is not always possible when you have little ones, but definitely sneak one in when you can. The warm water relaxes the body makes you sleepy. Add in moisturizing beads, oil, epson salts or another product of your choice, that will make your skin feel good and you relaxed.
Make sure you have a comfy bed and pillow. I know this firsthand – an uncomfortable bed can definitely make you lose sleep! Equally important is the proper pillow. Ever since I had my neck surgery, I am very choosy about my pillow and the support it offers.
Take ZzzQuil on those nights when you just can’t fall asleep. Sleep is so essential. When you have those occasional nights when you just can’t get to rest, try ZzzQuil (from the makers of Vicks NyQuil) when you have an important project, meeting, etc. the following day, to ensure you are rested. Tackle whatever tomorrow holds for you, while feeling and looking your best.
If you are traveling, make sure you pack ZzzQuil. Hotels can be noisy (especially when you are next to an elevator!), and the beds can be uncomfortable. Sometimes it is just hard to sleep when you are away from home. Don’t forget this essential item! Click here for a coupon to try it yourself
What I love about Vicks ZzzQuil is that it is a non-habit-forming sleep-aid. It is perfect for occasional use, when you are struggling to fall (or stay) asleep.
What about you? What do you do for a restful sleep? How do you bring your A-game?
