Welcome to Byrdie UK's Wellness Week. Over the next seven days, you'll get to read about how to make your body, mind and, well, your life more balanced. We know it's not January, but wellness has become a year-round focus for many, and with autumn on the way (read: cold and flu season), now seems like a good time to talk about not just keeping well but boosting our wellness from all angles. From the best tech to improve your health to the small tweaks anyone can do to bring about more happiness, we've thought about everything you might want to factor a little more wellness into your life with ease.
When it comes to lending clothes and books, I can be a generous person. Still holding on to that top you borrowed from me six months ago? Totally okay. Haven't managed to get through a book I lent to you weeks ago? I don't mind. But when it comes to beauty products, well, that's a whole other matter. This is particularly annoying when the person you live with always steals the same product over and over until there's none left. In my case, it's my husband nicking the one product that helps me get to sleep.

This Works's pillow spray has been in my beauty cupboard for probably about five years, and it's now a staple of my bedtime routine, especially when I'm finding it tough to fall asleep. The only problem is that my husband has stolen it and used it so much I kept running out (and not realising why). The spray is used exactly as you can imagine: You put it on your pillow before bedtime, and it's meant to help you get to sleep faster.
So what is it that makes this product so incredible? It's got a lot to do with the combination of the calming, soothing lavender and camomile included in the ingredients. If you find it difficult to get out of your head and relax, then this combo is brilliant at helping you to chill out. It lasts all night, and you'll probably find that it still lingers the following evening, meaning you don't have to spray your precious product too many times. And thanks to being able to sleep better, you'll probably find that you feel more yourself during the day.
Just make sure to buy double.
