Beauty and the sleep

It may be due to the hot weather we've been having here in the UK but recently I seem to be incapable of sleeping properly. I don't usually have any trouble actually falling asleep and maybe wake up once during the night if I'm unlucky but the last few weeks I've run the full gamut of laying awake for hours, waking up feeling completely overheated, waking up confused, waking up at the slightest noise outside, feeling like I haven't slept at all when I wake up - you get the picture!

I decided I need to take action and I wanted to share a couple of items for anyone who is suffering from similar insomnia nonsense.
