What Keeps YOU Up at Night? Febreze Serenity #mysleepserenity

When it comes to sleeping I usually keep myself up at night. My thoughts and my brain working overtime. It is hard to sometimes relax and get a good nights sleep with so much going on in my life. My body wants to sleep but my mind still keeps working. To help sleep at night I have stopped watching TV in bed as well my phone does not come into bed with me. Usually hubs and I go to bed and we will chat for a bit then roll over and go to sleep. We live in the country and our house is very dark at night. The dogs sleep in our room on the floor and stay asleep until one of us gets up. So if we get up in the middle of the night, we cause chaos. The last few nights we have woke to a strange noise. The noise we *think* is a rodent in the walls. But I will save you from that creepy story. 

For me to get the best nights sleep possible I need quiet or a dull noise, Dark and cooler temps. I can not wear socks to bed and I need a heavy blanket. I also LOVE my feather pillow. I love it so much nobody in my family will touch it as they know it is my fave. It supports my head perfectly and lets me snooze in comfort. 

Febreze has partnered with the National Sleep Foundation for some recommended tips that will have you counting sheep in no time:

  • Establish a regular bedtime: Try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day, even on the weekends. Trying to catch up on sleep on the weekends can actually have a reverse effect on the body, and make you feel more tired when Monday rolls around. 
  • Create a sleep haven: Create an environment that promotes sleep – one that is quiet, dark, cool and comfortable. Fresh sheets, cooling pillows and black out shades seem to do the trick. 
  • Fill the air: Incorporate soothing fragrances into your bedtime routine to help relax and unwind. Febreze Sleep Serenity collection’s calming scents in Moonlit Lavender, Warm Milk & Honey and  Quiet Jasmine help create a soothing bedtime atmosphere. 
  • Exercising: Getting your body moving is one of the best things you can do to help you sleep. Exercise anytime, as long as it doesn’t cut into your shuteye. 
  • Nighttime beverages: Avoid drinking caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea and soft drinks after noon. Caffeine-free herbal tea or warm milk are great options prior to nestling into your sheets. 

Available in a bedside diffuser, bedroom mist, bedroom diffuser, or bedding refresher, the Febreze Sleep Serenity collection eliminates odours and fills the bedroom with long lasting, relaxing scents that don’t overpower the room.

I have noticed that different scents have different effects on me. Some excite me and some relax me. It is comforting and peaceful to climb into bed at night to the above scents and let my mind just relax. We all can use a good nights sleep so it is worth a try if you have things keeping you up at night.
