I always find reading is the perfect way for me to switch off and stop scrolling into the late hours. I obviously prefer to read in book form, I’ve just finished Big Little Lies which was awesome! Seriously recommend a read. I do also read on the kindle app on my iPhone which is not as good for relaxation but I try to go on airplane mode to avoid any social media temptation!


I write in my journal every night, whether that’s what I’ve been doing today, what I’m feeling, or simply listing things I’m grateful for. I find this really ‘finishes’ the day off and sets a great tone to go to bed thinking positively, and not getting wound up over all the things you need to do the next day.


The thing that makes me totally nod off, is this sleep spray by Neom. It also literally zonks my boyfriend off to sleep too, not that he complains! I’m pretty sensitive to scent, but I find two sprays totally fine and doesn’t give me a headache. Fortunately for us I also have a back up of this as its nearly out!

What makes you go zzzz?

    I always write in my journal before bed as well, and I try to read before I go to sleep whenever I can. It’s so relaxing and such a great way to unwind after a busy week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Sending light & love your way,
