Do you feel tired all the time? Do you have trouble falling asleep at night? Well here are a few tips to try and help you get your beauty sleep!

  1. Don’t obsess about the time! It can be easy to get worked up about the fact that it is late and you should already be sound asleep. Checking the clock and worrying about how late it is and how tired you will be at work the next day, will just make things worse. Do what you can to take your mind away from the time and sleep will come much easier.

  1. Tea before bed! It is best to avoid drinking coffee, sodas, energy drinks and certain kinds of tea. Some teas contain higher levels of caffeine so this may seem like the opposite thing you would want to have before bed. But there are actually specific kinds of tea that are very calming and help you get to sleep. Watch for a kind of tea called chamomile tea, as this is great kind of tea to help relax you for bed time!

  1. Think positive! It is very easy to think about all the things you need to get done while your laying in bed waiting to fall asleep. Although this can let stress and anxiety even depressing thoughts creep into your mind. So rather than occupying your mind with this kind of negativity. It is important to think positively and picture good times or good memories, this will allow for your mind to clam itself and allow for sleep to settle in.
