How I Plan to Get a More Restful Night’s Sleep After Daylight Saving

From the time that I wake up in the morning, until bed time at night, my life is pretty much non-stop. I cook a hot breakfast for the family everyday, prepare lunch, and cook food from scratch most nights unless we go out to dinner as a family. I homeschool, which can take a few hours to administer lessons or up to an entire day. I also tidy up, and wash dishes by hand. Does this sound like a lot?! Because it is! When 10pm rolls around, on most nights I’m completely exhausted! All I can think of is going to bed, to do it all again the next day. Unfortunately on the days that I’m so worn out and tired, like clockwork I end up waking up at 3am and I can’t go back to sleep. From the women that I’ve talked to, I’ve learned that occasional sleeplessness is a real problem for a lot of moms like me and it isn’t only the ability to fall asleep, but it’s staying asleep as well. 
With Daylight Saving Time coming this weekend, I’m not sure it will get any easier. We lose an hour from our day, and the kids usually get up at the same time as before, which means they are rising about an hour earlier. I’ve started a new bedtime routine that includes taking Natrol Melatonin supplements. I want to get in a full nights rest instead of waking up at 3am, and using 100% drug free sleep aids to help me to accomplish this. Natrol Melatonin is the #1 Melatonin brand in America. Not only does it help you fall asleep faster, but it helps you to stay asleep longer and wake up feeling refreshed. In my earlier post on Natrol 5-HTP, I mentioned not being “team no sleep” because not getting enough sleep actually affects your mood, ability to fight off illnesses, mental sharpness, and even managing the weight we are all trying to lose.

Natrol Melatonin comes in several varieties so you can choose which one is right for you. Easy to chew Gummies, fast dissolve in strawberry flavor so you don’t need any water, you can take them anytime and anywhere, and time released tablets. The fast dissolve tablets are 100 percent Vegetarian. Natrol Melatonin is also 100 percent drug-freeand non-habit forming.† You won’t start to feel like you NEED to take it. If you suffer from occasional sleeplessness like I do, or want to establish normal sleeping patterns†, you can grab some Natrol Melatonin online or at mass market retailers nationwide, health food stores or even at wholesale stores like Costco and Sam’s. I’m definitely looking forward to more relaxed and restful sleep after Daylight Saving Time. 


I’m also excited to share a fun opportunity, where you can get your family involved! March is National Sleep Awareness Month. This month, you can submit a picture of your family or friends on Natrol’s Facebook page, or tag them on Twitter using the hashtag #CaughtDozing, when you catch them napping when they shouldn’t be. You’ll be entered to win fun sleep swag prizes and get a coupon to make your purchase of #NatrolMelatonin. 

I’m also excited to be giving away Natrol Melatonin to one of my readers!
