How To Get Back To Sleep When Insomnia Strikes

Posted by Laura Colucci on

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, achieving a restful night's sleep can sometimes be difficult. Insomnia in particular is a common sleep problem that negatively affects sleep quality for many people. Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterised by difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restorative sleep. Individuals with insomnia often find themselves lying awake for extended periods, feeling fatigued, irritable, and unable to function optimally during waking hours. The main challenge that insomnia sufferers face is getting back to sleep in the middle of the night. Although it can be incredibly difficult to get back to sleep, there are some steps that you can take to help you to combat insomnia and reclaim your sleep.

  1. Aromatherapy Eye Pillows:

One way to help to soothe the body back to sleep is with an Aromatherapy Eye Pillow. These luxury eye pillows are filled with a blend of lavender, chamomile, buckwheat hull and linseed which are renowned for their calming properties. Placing the eye pillow over your eyes not only blocks out external light but also releases gentle, relaxing scents that helps to quieten the mind. The combination of gentle pressure and soothing aromas can ease tension and promote a tranquil environment, guiding you back to a peaceful sleep.

  1. Aromatherapy Eye Masks:

In the battle against insomnia, a comfortable and effective Aromatherapy Eye Mask can be your best friend. Opt for a mask that not only blocks out light but also incorporates soothing scents like lavender. These materials contour to your face, providing a cocoon of comfort that encourages relaxation. Choose an eye mask that aligns with your personal preferences and enhances your sleep environment, creating a darkness that signals to your body it's time to rest. By keeping an Aromatherapy Eye Mask by your bed,  you can ensure that if insomnia strikes you can pop on the eye mask and use it as a tool to soothe yourself back to sleep.

  1. Calming Sleep Sprays:

Introduce the power of aromatherapy into your nighttime routine with calming sleep sprays. Crafted with a blend of essential oils like lavender and chamomile these sprays are designed to create a tranquil atmosphere conducive to sleep. Lightly mist your bedroom or pillow with the sleep spray before settling down for the night. The gentle scent envelops you, promoting relaxation and helping to dispel any residual stress or anxiety that might be keeping you awake. The Spritz Wellness Sleep Atmosphere Mist Pillow Spray  is the perfect bedside companion. It’s blend of lavender, chamomile, mandarin and ravensara helps to calm the nervous system, relieve stress and as a result help you to drift off to sleep when insomnia strikes.

  1. Deep Breathing:

The simple act of deep breathing can be a great tool in guiding you back to restful slumber. Focus your attention on your breath. Inhale deeply, allowing your lungs to fill with air, and exhale slowly, releasing tension with each breath. The rhythmic flow of deep breathing serves as a gentle anchor, quieting the restless thoughts that often accompany sleeplessness. This intentional, mindful breathing not only calms the nervous system but also invites a sense of tranquility. Embrace the simplicity of deep breaths with some relaxing yoga stretches as a powerful tool to quiet the mind, relax the body, and pave the way for a peaceful return to sleep.

Crafting Your Bedtime Ritual:

Combating insomnia is not just about the tools but also about cultivating a soothing bedtime ritual. Begin by dimming the lights an hour before sleep, signalling to your body that it's time to wind down. Incorporate these aromatherapy tools into your routine, combining the comforting weight of an eye pillow, the soothing scent of an aromatherapy eye mask, and the calming fragrance of a sleep spray. Create a serene environment that invites tranquility and signals to your body that it's time to transition into restorative sleep.
