Some of of my clients and friends swear by the slip sleep mask to help them fall asleep at night. It’s especially effective when light keeps you awake at home, or when you travel. The soft, silky fabric is comforting so once it’s on, your brain equates it with rest, relaxation and sleep. I’ve seen people wear them at the end of a restorative yoga class too. You can buy it with a scented lavender and chamomile room mist that is supposed to create a calm environment for sleeping, but I don’t know how effective that really is.

Apparently the slip sleep mask fits most head and face shapes. I haven’t tried it yet, but with my very small head I haven’t yet found a mask that fits. That said, this one looks quite alterable and I’m going to try it because I do have trouble falling sleeping in our loft in Salt Lake City. There is a very bright street lamp right outside our gigantic window that we have no control over. It shines into our open loft space and keeps things bright all night. Hopefully this will help.

Over to you. Do you wear a sleep mask? If so, which one do you use?
