I have suffered from sleep issues for as long as I can remember. My mom has sleep issues so I always assumed there wasn’t much I could do. At one point I became so tired, while at my doctors office for my yearly physical I broke down in tears at how exhausted I was. She put me on a prescription sleep aid for nights I needed my body to truly reset. And the pills worked great. But I always hated the idea of them. And eventually stopped taking them and started researching natural ways to get better sleep. I tried everything from drinking hot water before bed, lavender baths, and eating certain foods for dinner. Nothing worked. I was about to throw in the towel when I heard about Olly vitamins. I was told the Olly “sleep” gummies worked really well so I decided to give them a try.
I love that they only have three ingredients (Melatonin, L-Theanine, and Botanicals), all of which help calm, relax, and promote sleep. I took two gummies 30 minutes before bed and started feeling very relaxed and fell asleep VERY easily. I thought it was too good to be true so tried them the following night too. And I got the same results. They even helped me fall back asleep quickly when I woke up in the middle of the night. This was very new territory, but in the best way possible. After a few weeks of taking the gummies I wanted to try to find a way to sleep without having to take any sleep aid. The mission continued.
While I was visiting my friend Ashley at her Miami apartment she handed me a sleep mask. Because her apartment was so bright she said I would need it. I told her it was okay because I could never sleep in a sleep mask. She just told me to try it, so I obliged. Not only did I sleep phenomenally and fall back asleep easily, I slept until late in the morning. I’ve learned that when I wake up, if I see any light, I am wide awake for the rest of the night. But this mask allows you to open your eyes, see black, and easily fall back asleep. THIS MASK IS A MUST! Even my sister, who swore she would never wear a sleep mask, tried it out at my house and ended up purchasing one for herself. She says she has never slept better.
