No matter how active I’ve been in the day, running after the kids, going to work, slaving away over a hot stove to make dinner or even if I’ve been to the gym.
It still seems to take me an age to fall asleep.
How can I be so tired when I’m awake, but the minute my head it’s the pillow, my brain goes into overdrive. Then i lie there tossing and turning for what seems like HOURS.
It’s frustrating feeling exhausted all the time and I’ve tried every remedy under the sun to no avail.
Sleeping pills kinda work, but then I have a groggy hangover the next day, plus I’ve seen on the news how easy it is to get addicted to them.
My doctor told me to “try doing more exercise” but how am I meant to do that with kids and a full time job!
It’s not just the falling asleep too, I also have trouble staying asleep. I wake anywhere up to 2 or 3 times a night, every night.
So naturally, when my friend Janet told me about how her new Xalm blanket was helping her get to sleep I was sceptical to say the least.
I’d heard it all before. But what the hell it couldn’t hurt to try one more thing.
I did a bit more research online before buying one. According to some studies I found not only would it help me fall asleep quicker, it’ would also help me stay asleep longer through the night!
So I decided to buy one to try out, with a 100 night guarantee I figured there was no risk to giving it a try.
