Sleepytime Herbal Tea

Wintertime comes with its fair share of problems, and I think Sleepytime Herbal Tea can help.

Wait, am I really complaining about the season. Again?

Yes I am!

It’s darker for most of the day and I’m more tired and sluggish than usual, pass the Vitamin D bottle please! Yet, it doesn’t stop there, because my body works backwards. I hit the snooze on my alarm clock more than the repeat button on the girls’ fave cartoon. Then, I drag myself around all day only to be  wide awake at night! I lay in bed thinking of that to-do list and trying not to get up to do things I forgot. Morning come way too quickly. Rinse and repeat.

If this sounds like you as well, we are not alone. Fact is, Three million Canadians have problems sleeping – which can affect overall health and well being. Winding down before bed is a key step to a good night’s rest.

Lately I have started drinking a nightly cup of Sleepytime Herbal Tea, along with trying to not have a cup of coffee after 2pm. In the evenings, I like the settling cup of tea to help me unwind and relax {its caffeine-free chamomile, spearmint and lemongrass}.

Since I take my tea black, I notice the spearminty taste, yet especially so when it’s steeping. In front of the fire, with a favorite TV program… ahh, that’s my bliss after a day of chaos.

A package is great for yourself, or for stocking stuffers this Christmas season. Here’s an idea: pair Sleepytime Tea with a holiday mug and a candle, to make a little token of appreciation. Grandparents, the mailman or the neighbor that shovels your sidewalk from time to time, it’s a thoughtful gift! You can purchase Sleepytime Herbal Tea online or use the Store Finder to locate the tea in a store near you.
