With the holidays sneaking up on us quickly, and endless party plans, gatherings, and entertaining on the horizon, it’s inevitable that minor aches and pains and a lack of sleep are on the agenda for a lot of us. I know that I always end up being on my feet for a lot longer than I plan on, which leads to sore feet and lower back pain! Plus those long days usually turn into long nights and the last thing I need is for minor aches and pains to interrupt my, already diminished, hours of sleep. But, if you guys are serial entertainers like me, don’t fret about the wear and tear of the upcoming season! I’m sharing a few of my favorite things to give those aches and pains, and the lack of sleep you might be experiencing, the kick in the butt they need! This easy tutorial for DIY lavender pillow mist takes minutes to put together and would also make a great gift too!
A good night’s sleep not only helps me tackle my day feeling rested and energized, but it helps with my mental and physical well being too! (And we all know how stressful the holiday season can get!) And with fewer daylight hours during this time of year, I try to make sure all of those hours are as productive as possible. It may seem minor, but a full night’s sleep can make a huge difference between a good day and a bad day.
One of the things that I’ve found to help me with those minor aches and pains, that keep me up at night, is TYLENOL® PM. Not only does it relive the discomfort, but it also helps me to fall asleep quickly and soundly too!
Make sure to follow the directions for use on the packaging exactly.
I picked mine up at my local Walgreens store. TYLENOL® is collaborating with Walgreens to help treat people that are experiencing sleepless nights and are offering $1.50 off of the original price with your Walgreens card, valid from 11/5-11/11.
You can also purchase TYLENOL® PM online by hovering over the photo above! (So easy!)
To ensure a restful nights sleep, keep your bedroom clutter free, limit the use of electronics at night, and keep noise to a minimum. Cooler temperatures also help to get you to sleep faster too!
Lavender is also known to have a calming and relaxing effect on people, so I love to spritz some of this DIY lavender pillow mist onto my pillows right before I plan to call it a night. It’s simple to make and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the way I sleep since I started using it!
