Today’s blog post is all about what I do to calm down. Have you been keeping up with my daily blog posts? To read the latest copy the short link or check my bio! https://lifewiththehazelwoods.co.uk/2019/11/12/things-i-do-to-calm-myself-down/
Today’s read for our animal obsessed boy, it’s been raining so much today so we’ve stayed in and read and napped. We’ve both got this horrid cold that’s been going round and sticking to your chest so I’ve been utilising his nap time and napping too. People never tell you how hard being a parent is when both you and your child are ill it is so draining! Currently whacking the heating on and watching hey duggee under blankets!
We’ve spent our evening making Christmas cards. I know it’s early but considering i take like a month to remember to deliver any sort of card it’s probably right on time😂
Praise be! What I’m reading now! I’ve had this book for about a year and keep going to read it and stop. After being deeply immersed in the tv series and having to watch all of the seasons in every spare moment I had I thought enough time had passed now to pick the book up again. I’m about half way through and loving it but hating it at the same time. It’s a brilliant book but also such a harsh storyline that sometimes I feel a bit horrid reading it but I’m unable to put it down and must learn more and what happens next. Anyone else obsessed the tv series too and can not wait to see what happens next? #praisebe #thehandmaidstale #bookstagram
There’s something about the cold weather that makes me crave chocolate cake and a warm cup of tea ☕️🍰
This is my favourite little plaque in my house. I’m a sucker for cute little quotes and probably always will be. Whenever I look at this little thing I smile and remember to do more of what makes me happy. Just a reminder to “do more of what makes you happy”!

First of all let’s get it straight I’m not condoning having to use medication to sleep. If you get to a state you rely on medication it’s time to speak to your g.p or local practitioner for advice.

One thing I struggle with badly is the need to sleep. Here I’m going to outline some of the things I’ve used to try and aid sleep and here are some of my essentials. Although sometimes they don’t always work they do help.

Sleep masks first of all. It’s important when choosing one it is one soft and not scratchy, I buy silk, so it’s soft against eyes and doesn’t cause wrinkles. The ban should be adjustable as the elastic only ones ping back and can be quite tight and uncomfortable which can inturn irritate you and disrupt sleep. I don’t the pressure light on my eyes helps and the darkness. If you have dyslexia or light sensitivity this really helps if you can’t sleep in a room with slightest light in. I need pitch black so this is a light saver.

This works. The pillow spray and roll on have been life savers for me. The smells from the pillow spray relax me and stay with me all night. The oil on my pulse points on my whist not only smell great when you breath it in but when absorbed in you feel instantly relaxed. It’s gray for teaching you relax and breath deeply also. I’ve tried other sleep sprays with no success. This may be expensive but it’s worth it!

Sleepy by lush. Sleepy cream and body wash both really help me relax the aroma therapy side and lightness of both really help me relax and my body feel ready for bed.

Sometimes/ many times I rely on sleep pills to help me sleep. Kalms do a natural range which can help which aren’t Medicated and can be brought on shop floor. I use what I’ve been told by doctors and sometimes have to use stronger prescriptions they’ve given me. They believe it’s caused by my anxiety so there’s not much I can really do. You should always go to speak to a g.p if your having long term sleep disruption or if s big life event has caused sleeplessness.
