I can't sleep advice

Recommended Posts

So I can't sleep restful now that my weddding is so close. I literally wake up every night at around 4:00am and I just can't fall back asleep. I'm seeing undereye circles and this is causing me more stress. Any recommendations to sleep better. I'd rather not takes meds, but how about teas or creams?

One of the best ways that I find to sleep like a baby is to take 2 benadryl before bed (about 8pm to sleep by 10 10:30). I know that medicine is not the best way for the long term but it certainly hels me in a pinch. The pharmicist said it is ok to do all of allergy season, so I cant imagine it is too bad .

 

Good Luck girl! I know it is so frustrating to have difficulting sleeping.

Do you have a lot of caffeine during the day? If so, I'd say cut back until the wedding on any soda, coffee, chocolate etc. I know that when I stopped drinking soda I slept much better. Otherwise, try keeping a notepad and pen next to your bed. Your head is probably full of ideas and thoughts about the wedding and if you write them down you might be able to sleep without worrying.

Melatonin. It's what your body produces naturally to sleep, as you get older your body slowly produces less of it. You can buy it at your local drug store in different mgs. I would buy like the 3 mg, take it the first night, if it makes you to droggy, cut it in half, if it's not enough, take 2 the 2nd night.

 

The FI swears by them. Personally me, I take a prescription sedative. I have big sleep issues due to working nights. I hate having to take pills but if not I'm up literally EVERY hour.

 

Best of luck for my fellow May bride!!

Tea: Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime. Its one of their most popular for a reason!

 

I also try to read for 20 minutes before lights-out. It gets your head in a book (and off the wedding) and helps weigh your eye lids down.

 

I was the same way - couldnt sleep and had breakouts right before the wedding! That was gone as soon as it was over :) Hope those help and you get some rest!

I remember being too excited to sleep!! That is so exciting that your wedding is so soon! I agree, no caffiene in the afternoon, also try not to exercise at night either. Maybe some Yoga before bed though might work. Good Luck! (And for those under-eye circles, Bare Minerals work great for covering)

you can try herbal teas (chamomille or peppermint with honey), kava kava supplements, but watch your intake, melatonin are alll great. Also a glass of warm milk and honey is also great before bed.

I second Melatonin....my DH will only let me take this. He takes it too. You can even buy it at walmart in the vitamin aisle. My DH has been taking it for a while when he can't sleep. It really does work. And it's natural not a drug!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
