It's been a topic on one of the threads so thought creating a thread here would be a good idea to bring people together to chat and share advice
The spacemasks look lovely, but going to go for the Superdrug ones, they look perfect for using in the bath.Self heating eye masks are great and would recommend them, except for when I'm wide awake at night. I splashed out and got spacemasks, but they stayed heated for so long that I got bored and took it off. I get cheap ones from superdrug.
I also got a herbal scented pillow, to place next to my own pillow.
Thank you so much.@Badlyplatedflapjacks and @hongkongfuey
I've talked about weighted blankets on the JM threads, I suffered from insomnia for years, I bought a weighted blanket a few months ago not really expecting it to work but as anyone who's experienced insomnia knows we'll try anything that might help.
It has really changed my sleep patterns, most nights now I sleep for 6/7 hours, sometimes more, which is miraculous for me.
I still wake in the night but instead of tossing and turning for hours I fall back to sleep quickly and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.
I know it sounds too good to be true but it worked for me
I'll stop boring on, I bought a ZZZNest blanket from Amazon, it cost about £60, you can pay a lot more but I'm really happy with this one.
Travel sickness tablets? Do they really help ? .I occasionally use Nitol so I'd be willing to try something new.I get bouts of insomnia and have tried all sorts but the best techniques I have:
-drink bed time tea. Be careful if you’re on antidepressants though- Some of them contain valerian root or at johns wart which can interact with meds. If in doubt use chamomile.
-Avon’s pillow mist
-Johnson’s bed time baby body lotion
And for when I’m really really struggling to knock myself out I take strugeron travel sickness tablets.
