It was the first Sunday in February and I’d just snuggled underneath the covers with the hopes of getting a restful night’s sleep; but I couldn’t seem to turn my brain off. Between thoughts of my busy week ahead, and wondering whether or not Punxsutawney Phil was going to see his shadow, I was left tossing and turning on yet another Sunday night.
Just before I began counting my third flock of sheep, I remembered my #SleepSoundly partnership with Febreze and ZzzQuil. This would be the perfect night to try-out the Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist and ZzzQuil. I didn’t want to start my week off with another sleepless night.
It was still early, which was great. Taking ZzzQuil, I knew that I needed to make sure that I had plenty of time to get a full night’s sleep. With that in mind, I slid out of bed and quietly took the ZzzQuil LiquiCaps.
I was sure that my husband wouldn’t mind smelling the dreamy aroma of Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist while deep in his slumber; so before getting back into bed, I grabbed my Febreze Sleep Serenity in Moonlit Lavender and sprayed it throughout the bedroom.
After I’d slid back into bed and settled in underneath the covers, I began to imagine myself in a situation where I would feel content. (This is a sleep trick that has been scientifically proven to work.) I saw myself in a tropical paradise… sailing on calm waters… with a margarita in one hand… and the warm…
I woke up the next morning feeling relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for whatever came next – Which happened to be the sound of my 4-year-old twins fighting over a granola bar at the kitchen table. Thankfully, I was ready to hop out of bed and handle it – Minus any of that crabby yelling that comes from having my usual restless night’s sleep.

Unfortunately, my groundhog friend Phil did, in fact, see his shadow. No early spring for me. No worries though. Thanks to Febreze and ZzzQuil I realized that I don’t have to succumb to that groggy and sluggish feeling that comes with the cold and dark weather. I’ve found an awesome sleep routine that allows me to wake up refreshed and ready to go.
I’m going to continue to use ZzzQuil on the occasional sleepless nights along with my Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist all month long. Coupling this bedtime routine with my visualization meditation and other sleep tricks has helped me to clear my head, get rid of those “Sunday blues”, and obtain a peaceful Sunday night sleep so that I can start my week off right.
