SLEEP: WE ALL NEED IT, BUT HOW MUCH DO WE WANT IT?
If you’re anything like me- I have the 21st century FOMO (fear of missing out), so I tend to cram in as much as possible, as often as possible! And that results in me feeling a little bit jaded from time to time..
So on my days of recuperation, I like to try and catch up on my sleep. Needless to say by then, I am officially exhausted and you would think sleep would come easy.. alas not. It seems whenever I attempt to get my head down at a reasonable hour, my sleep endorphins decide they want to be out dancing. Or starting a provocative conversation with my brain about a deadline. Hence even on those days off, falling asleep is a bit of a mish!
I’ve tried the chill out apps and the pillow spray- all very well and good but not quite effective enough! So when I got my mitts on the infamous Potter’s ‘Herbal Nodoff Plus Mixture‘ I couldn’t wait to see if this would be the answer to my insomnia.
Having produced successful products for years, the white coats behind the Potter’s brand must know something about herbs, and reading between the lines, it is quite a combo of ingredients which help the little sleep zzzzzs..
Valerian is widely used for excitability and exhaustion, (which sums me up rather well), along with Jamaican Dogwood, Passion Flower and Hops- but the potion didn’t look (or taste) as pretty as it sounded! However I persevered, and the tablespoon after dinner and two more before bed hit me like a brick wall! In a good way.
I’d love to tell you I had a great night’s sleep, but I can’t remember… I was out like a light, and felt fresh a a daisy the next day. No dreams, no anxiety, no grogginess. In fact I woke up feeling like I do on holiday- refreshed and raring to go.
I don’t know if it will be quite as effective if you get used to it, but I am definitely keeping this in my bathroom cabinet for emergencies.
