I’ve chronicled before how I seem to have trouble sleeping. I just spent a week at Rancho La Puerta in Mexico and my lack of sleep went away with fresh food, fun workouts, and getting away. [A full review is coming in a few weeks].
I could sleep for 12 hours and hard. Once I started traveling in my late twenties something happened. I just can’t sleep like that anymore. My mind races. I’m like a kid that needs a good sleep routine – hot bath, boring book, cold bedroom, nice sheets, and maybe I can sleep a solid 8 hours. It doesn’t help that I’m a former runner and used to wake up at 4:00am to get a run in. But, that was before the move to DC and sleeping alone.
I used to be addicted to a sleep aid, but over the years I constantly search out alternative natural sleep remedies. reBloom Beauty Sleep Drink is what I’m using right now. I grabbed this from Erika when we were in New York at the gift fair. The drink was created by Jonathon Bunt for his fiancée – another sleep aid addict. This is a natural product that contains Valerian, Melatonin, L-Theanine, and Chamomile. I don’t drink it every night. I limit myself to once a week and/or one night on the weekends. I also use straight Melatonin, but reBloom works wonders. I used my last one last night after a hellish travel day.
