Moms need a good night’s sleep

Who doesn’t want a good night’s sleep? Sleep is the key for renewing and rebalancing the body and mind. Sleeping never seemed a problem to me. Even when my son died, I always slept well as soon as my head hit my pillow. Pretty soon the fifties came and I discovered it got harder to fall asleep.This wakeful moment in my life arrived at about the time I moved in to my new home, the year I turned 50 years old. Adjustment in my routine needed to be made through the years.

My bedroom is pretty much a sleep haven. I love my canopy bed There is something soothing with a canopy on the bed. It feels like being protected in a cocoon. My canopy bed is a peaceful retreat from the outside world. I chose to have a canopy on my old antique bed to add a touch of beauty to the four poster bed. I was able to get an artistic bed designer who charged reasonable rates for everything including the pillows. The canopy bed certainly added softness , drama and beauty in my bedroom.

Using the scent of lavender helps. Just before I sleep, I use Lavender linen spray and mist my pillows and blanket. I moisturize my arms and legs with Lavender body butter. I take in the scent of lavender and feel joyful. Lavender is believed to possess a sedative that calms the psyche. It soothes and relaxes my body and mind. A lot of rituals just to make sure I get a sound sleep at night.
