I’m rounding up my top tips to get a better sleep, plus all of YOUR top sleeping tips that you gave me when I asked you on Instagram. Bookmark this post as a resource to come back to over and over again!
I’ve struggled with sleep for as long as I can remember. I usually wake up in the night with my mind racing and can’t fall back asleep. Because of that, I am super proactive about doing what I can to improve my sleep. I’ll never be one of those people that sleeps 11 hours uninterrupted (truly, how?!), but I’ve been sleeping better lately after implementing a few things.
Tips To Get A Better Sleep (Mine And Yours!):
- No phones before bed. We don’t bring them in our bedroom so there’s no temptation (they charge overnight in the kitchen).
- Go to bed early at 10-10:30pm. Most people’s sleep is the deepest and most rejuvenating between 10pm-2am, so you don’t want to miss that window.
- CBD before bed. This has been a game changer!! I haven’t settled on a brand that I love, but have tried a few and they definitely help. I will add one here when I try one I’m obsessed with!
- Goes along with my first point, but no checking technology when you wake up in the middle of the night. This is the WORST.
- Wake up early 6:30-7am. This creates a pattern (consistency is key!) and ensures you’re tired enough by bedtime to sleep.
- Workout! Getting a great workout in (even 20 minutes!) relieves stress, clears your mind, and tires out your body so you can fall asleep. Join me for your FREE 14 day trial!
- EARPLUGS. I wear them every single night. They drown out background noise, including my hubby’s annoying snoring.
- Darken your bedroom (black-out blinds are great) & keep it at a cooler temp.
- Magnesium tea or supplement before bed. It’s really relaxing, and also great for muscle repair and recovery.
- Sleep under a weighted blanket. I purchased one based on your recommendations – it makes you feel all wrapped up and cozy, lulling you to sleep.
- Set the mood and get comfortable. Lavender essential oils, sleep mask, lip mask, comfy sheets and pyjamas. You need to be comfortable in order to sleep soundly!

In conclusion, I encourage you to incorporate some of these tips to improve quality of sleep. Good night!
Wondering if you have any CBD or Magnesium tea recommendations? 🙂
Hi Shannon! I do! The CBD pen I love is called Alair – they are not in stock right now but I will let everyone know when they are. I’ve been using them for yearsssss. Wish I had a better answer for you on that! For magnesium, i love Natural Calm Tea and have it most nights before bed. Get the unflavoured one, and add some lemon juice to it yourself. It’s my fav nighttime ritual 🙂 Hope this helps!
