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.
I would really appreciate that too.Could people with weighted blanket recommendations post them here: very tempted to try one.
What are you thoughts on them @Gentlemensrelish ?
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.
They work for me. Once they kick in I’m out like a light. I only use the Stugeron ones so can’t say or any other brands work.Travel sickness tablets? Do they really help ? .I occasionally use Nitol so I'd be willing to try something new.
Can you advise which magnesium tablets you take from H&B please ?I've had on and off insomnia for years since giving birth to my first child. I never once had trouble with sleep before that. My last bout of insomnia lasted a solid 8 weeks nothing changed or happened in my life I was not down in any way I just could not sleep more than 3 hours broken sleep a night in 1 hour blocks. It was awful I was crying every day It made me feel that low so I understand anyone's struggles with it. Now what helped me were magnesium tablets from Holland and Barrett you take them an hour or two before going to bed. Aswell as cbd oil jacob hooy from Holland and Barrett I started with the 2.5% which helped but then had the 5% which is much better. I was going to sleep straight away nearly every night which even before my insomnia started it would take me an hour or 2. And I was sleeping better than I ever had done 7/8 hours a night. Now I don't take these every night anymore as my sleep has drastically improved but if I'm ever finding myself struggling I go back to these products. Also there's antihistamine called sominex you can buy behind the counter at Tesco which I find are good for the odd night when you can't sleep. And Definately no phones tablets laptops in the hour or so before bed
