Get the most out of sleep

Our need for sleep changes with age. For newborns it’s 12-18 hours, preschoolers about 11-13 hours. But what about busy mums?


Having children, no matter what age, can impact your quality of sleep. So how do you get your 8 or so hours of quality sleep every night? Here are some tips:

  • Avoid having your children and pets share your bed with you.
  • Fill your bedroom with a calming fragrance to help you relax. Febreze Sleep Serenity in Quiet Jasmine is a great choice. It releases an inviting scent for a more peaceful night.
  • Take a bath before bedtime to help relax your muscles and increase your body temperature. Once you begin to cool off, your brain will release melatonin, which will help you sleep.
  • If you take a nap when your little one is asleep, be sure to keep it under an hour.

Busy professionals
Many of us suffer from temporary sleeplessness due to stress. So:

  • Switch off your laptop at least an hour before bed and don’t allow any electronics in the bedroom. Keep it a quiet and peaceful environment.
  • Working hard often means missing out on workouts. Try to include some exercise even if it’s light.
  • Create a sleep haven in your bedroom. Play soft, soothing music, use blackout curtains and get a diffuser like Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedside Diffuser in Warm Milk & Honey to fill the air with calming scents.
  • Avoid caffeinated beverages such as coffee or soft drinks later in the day.
