DIY MAGNESIUM SLEEP SPRAY! CATCH THOSE ZZZ’S AND CALM PRE-WEDDING ANXIETY
Ever since my late teens, I’ve been an anxious person. Whilst working at a call center, I used to worry people would think I wasn’t good at my job and that they would talk about how useless I was behind my back. Over the years, those worries turned into countless sleepless nights reviewing every conversation I’d had with people I’d met that day, to reassure myself that I’d not said anything to offend them. Anxiety effects us in strange ways.
When my anxiety was at it’s worst, I learnt about the power of positive thinking and that has gone a long way in helping me manage my mindset, I also discovered minimalism which really helped me, let go of things that might have caused my anxiety. I’ve started to take mediation and yoga more seriously which has been a game changer and resulted in a lot more self-trust.
But even with all that, I’ve still had to come to terms with the fact that anxiety is a part of me and I’ll never be able to get rid of it, but I am able to control it. Something that has helped more recently is essential oils. Mr T bought me a diffuser for Christmas and I use it everyday. I love experimenting with different recipes and scents.
With just 6 weeks to go until Mr T and I get wed, it’s safe to say my anxiety has kicked it up a notch. I’ve been struggling to sleep at night and that’s where today’s DIY has come in handy. This Magnesium sleep spray is a natural way to help me relax and induce sleep at night, all thanks to my new favourite subscription box Simply Earth. Did you know Magnesium helps fight depression, lowers blood pressure, heal inflammation, prevent migraines, relieve PMS symptoms, alleviate muscle cramps and so much more! I really wanted to share this recipe today as I think it will be immensely valuable to people like me, those of you that are starting to feel the effects of wedding planning and if there’s one thing that I know would help ease the stress right now, is knowing I can at least get a good nights sleep.
