Cat’z Napz :: on Falling Asleep

I can sleep through anything. Be as loud as you want. I never have trouble falling asleep. 

These were words I vividly remember telling my roommate, Alli, when we moved in together in college. I also remember saying this every year, at every physical, when my doctor asks those maddening questions (if I drink alcohol, if I feel safe at home, if I have have trouble sleeping, If I go to the bathroom regularly… by the time that last question comes around, I’m about to offer up my unborn child in an exaggerated effort to get her to stop.)

But, it wasn’t until recently that I began experiencing interruptions in my sleep. I don’t know why, because I’m super happy, financially content, excited about my life. I think it has something to do with hormones, busy thoughts, or the urgent need I feel to please everyone in my life. But either way, I’ve discovered my new best friend - Bath and Body Works Sleep lotion, part of their Aromatherapy Sleep line. Not only does this lotion help you relax and fall fast asleep, it smells incredible too! 

I love that it contains natural ingredients, and it’s not addictive like some sleeping pills. Even better, this line comes with a body wash and a candle to help lull you off to your world of slumber. I usually apply it after a hot, relaxing evening shower. Just smear it all over your body before going to bed, and before you know it, you’ll be a beautiful little ball of sweet smelling siesta! You can choose from different scents that the Sleep line offers! My favorite is the night time tea one.

You can thank me later.
