I sometimes go through stages where I struggle to fall asleep, when I lay in bed for hours upon hours staring at the ceiling and willing myself to drift off, and then when I finally do I can guarantee I will wake up again and find myself doing the same. Whether its down to stress or other influences, when it starts to affect my day to day routine and work, I have to rely on a good natural aid to get me through.
I have tried a few different sleep aid medications, but I steer clear from those that can be addictive or lead to a life of never being able to naturally fall asleep. Nytol is a herbal remedy that contains natural active ingredients, such as hops, valerian and passion flower. I take one just as I’m going to bed, as I tend to read for a while before I sleep, and it helps ease me into feeling relaxed and drowsy. It doesn’t completely knock me out, but my eyes begin to feel heavy and my body relaxed, so it definitely makes a difference. Another great characteristic of these tablets is that they don’t leave you feeling groggy in the morning, I can get up feeling as fresh as I do when I can get a full night’s sleep naturally.
