I know you’ve heard it before, but sleep is seriously so important to your health and wellbeing. There was a point and time when I lived by the, “Sleep when you’re dead,” motto, but that soon caught up with me. I was suffering from intense migraines and was always feeling sluggish. I quickly realized that I needed to find a routine that worked for me. I’m a girl who loves a good routine.
Today I’m sharing with you my top 5 essentials that I keep on my bedside table at all times in order to get a good night rest. I always start by keeping fresh flowers around the house. Particularly in the bedroom I go for more romantic flowers, like roses or anything with a strong scent. I love a good candle, and this one is the perfect relaxing combination. I also like to apply my lotion before going to bed, so I found my favorite one that has black chamomile in it.
A lot of times this isn’t enough, so I turn to Emergen-Zzz*, Advil PM or Nexium 24HR. (Disclosure: These statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.) I tried these products on a whim when I saw them being showcased at my local Walgreens. The store is focusing on sleep solutions in store during the month of March, where customers will have access to a variety of restful sleep aids in store, and helpful sleep tools and information online. Emergen-Zzz is my favorite product, since it’s all natural in the form of a melatonin infused drink mix featured in delicious flavors such as Peach and Nighttime Berry. When I do suffer from my occasional migraines, I turn to Advil PM. It helps me fall asleep soundly and awake well rested, without any signs of my migraine.
To help shoppers achieve a great night’s rest Walgreens is offering a special promotion where customers can earn 3,000 Balance Rewards points (a $3 value) when they purchase 2 of the following participating products: Emergen-Zzz, Nexium 24HR, or Advil PM during the month of March.
