This post is about using lavendar on or under your pillow for a more restful sleep. There is a sleep worry solution on this post too.
This is a simple an easy solution for a restful nights sleep.
Either harvest some lavendar from your garden or local woods (watch out for bears) or buy some lavendar oil.
Put the lavendar in a sock under your pillow or sprinkle a bit of lavendar oil on the pillow.
You will find that lavendar has a calming effect and if it is under your pillow all night, you will get a super restful sleep.
With lavendar I have found that a 4 hour sleep seems as good as a 7 hour sleep. Not that I am suggesting a 4 hour sleep. You should aim for 7 hours.
Also, if you are tossing and turning in bed worried that you cannot sleep for an important task the next day (e.g. job interview), then just lay there and relax your body as this will regain your energy anyway.
Do the above and say to yourself “if I relax my body then I will regain energy and if I sleep then even better”. With this attitude, you will find that you soon sleep anyway as the worry that was keeping you up has gone.
