List for Life tests: These are the sleep aids you need to get your ZZZs

I used to be a really terrible sleeper. I’d wake up diagonally across the bed in a sweat or sometimes even manage to fall out of it altogether. I remember clearly that my cousin would never share a bed with me during sleepovers because I apparently kicked her once in the night *sorry 🙂 *.

Now that I’ve discovered sleep aids, however, it’s a whole different story. I’ve been using free sleep app Sleep Cycle and I’m honestly, these days anyway, out like a light! The app even gives me warning notifications that’s I’m not showing signs of movement (lol). Here’s the evidence…

So if stress is keeping you awake or you’re having problems sleeping, what can you do? Well these are the sleep aids I swear by that give me a really restful night.

1. Clipper Tea

The Organic Sleep Easy Infusion is brilliant for people suffering from insomnia. It’s a natural blend of ingredients that all aid deep sleep. If you’re just looking to de-stress more and feel sleepy when it comes to bedtime, I’d recommend the Snore and Peace Tea – this contains calming lavender that makes me feel deeply relaxed before I get into bed.

2. This Works Sleep Spray

When I first heard about pillow sprays I was sceptical. How could a spray make me sleep better? Well This Works is a brand founded on the principle of proof – their products are tested by regular people and are only sold if the verdict is – “This works” (cool brand naming idea, huh?). A huge 100% of the 200 participants tested said that the product does what it claims to do, and 89% of ex-sleep prescription medication users said that they would use this spray instead of sleeping pills. Why not give it a try yourself?

4. A good eye mask

When you are in complete darkness your brain produces melatonin, the chemical of sleep. If you wear an eye mask, you are then more likely to fall asleep. This one from Slip at Net a Porter is a great one for guys and girls. It’s super soft (well duh, it is made of silk!), and it blocks out the light without being too tight or uncomfortable on your face – amazing. Silk is also really good at keeping breakouts at bay.
