5 Selfcare Tips That Will Improve Your Nightime Routine

This post is in partnership with ZzzQuil, A brand I have come to love. All options are 100 % my own. 
Hi Loves,
Hope you're all doing well and in the best of health. I wanted to write this post and share with you all, so that if you're in the same struggle as I am, we can get through it together. Now, many of you know that I also have a full-time job along with this blog. While you may not see as many blog posts on here like back in the day, I am almost always on Instagram posting and sharing all I do and what I’m up to. Over the past year, sleep has become my best friend and my worst enemy. I need and love it, yet I wasn't getting enough of it. I had not been sleeping well and it scared me. I would wake up during the middle of the night either bursting with ideas or worrying about a task I have to complete or an email I forgot to respond to. Guys, these are true stories. I would toss and turn or plan and overwork my brain during the one time I should be giving it the most love in the form of rest and rejuvenation.
Quality sleep is so important to overall self-care and so, I knew I had to actively do something about it. I decided to look into many different ways on how I could practice better self-care that would enhance my sleep. Here are five tips from my nighttime routine that have been working for me:

1. Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate: I couldn't stress this enough. Drinking a lot of water throughout the day is so good for you and it has really helped me. This is great for blood circulation and removing toxins from the body to make way for a better sleep.

2. I recently learned about the ZzzQil Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies, and they really help me fall asleep naturally and was sup refreshed*. It's yummy, and all I do is take 1-2 dummies 30 mins before bedtime. I also love that they are gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, drug free and contain a unique blend of lavender, chamomile, valerian root, and lemon balm. Not to mention they have the optimal level of melatonin so there's no next-day gogginess*. Yes, the research is done for you all. I know my audience has different restrictions, and to learn these are good for pretty much everyone made me excited to share.
3. Change your sleep surrounding and/or decor. I recently decided to declutter my sleeping space. I have so many pillows, candles, cute items in my bedroom but really, I realized I felt overwhelmed with all the stuff. At night before bed, I declutter all my cushions and any excess items. I put them in the guest room and I keep my bedroom as clutter free as possible. I also only use monochrome colored curtains that bring a zen vibe to my bedroom.

4. Try essential oils. The scent of lavender is such a great option for relaxation. The new Vicks® PURE Zzzs™ Soothing Aromatherapy Balm is made with soothing lavender and chamomile essential oils. It also has a moisturizing formula of coconut oil and aloe leaf extract, and it smells great! Try that, too.
5. Work out before bed. It used to be so hard for me to work out after a long work day but when I changed my thought process to find an effective nighttime routine, it became a wonderful practice. You can do any type of workout in your home, at the gym, walk/jog around the block, yoga etc.
I'm really hoping you found this post useful and that if you're on a journey to better self-care and relaxation, it'll become a smoother and more successful journey for you. We're in this together.
Thanks for reading, Loves.
xoxo

  6. I had no idea that ZzzQil™ Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies and Vicks PURE Zzzs Soothing Aromatherapy Balm existed. I have such a horrible time falling and staying asleep. I take regular melatonin pills and they tend to get stuck in my throat. I'm so glad that I came across this post. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Love the tips. God knows I need help with my sleeping problem. I am disabled and have major sleeping issues. I can either never fall asleep or stay asleep for very long. Maybe I should try zzzquils. Right now I am on 2 different meds to help me sleep but they are NOT working the way I wish they did. Again, thanks for the tips.
