What if I told you it’s possible to get 8 restful hours of sleep each night?


Several months ago, CycleGuy and I were having dinner with a friend who told us about a new product she was working on. Called 8 Hour Snooze, it’s a natural sleep aid. I am familiar with melatonin, having taken in before. But this product also includes other natural ingredients that help fight insomnia.

I try to get to bed at a normal time, but then I can’t fall asleep. So I start this pattern of staying up late. Many of my friends have similar experiences. Being a mom often means staying up late to finish chores. We end up messing with our natural sleep cycle and then can’t get to sleep. Waking up tired seems to become the norm.

A few weeks ago I received samples of the Mixed Berry flavor 8 Hour Snooze. I know that the ideal amount of sleep each night is 8-hours. For me, though, I might get 8 hours in bed but I spend much of it just trying to fall asleep. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this. Sometimes, I don’t even go to bed because I know I won’t fall asleep, so I end up staying up much later. The one constant, though, is having to be up at 6:30am regardless of when I finally get to sleep.

I’ve been trying out 8 Hour Snooze a few times a week and have been pleasantly surprised at how well it works. Each bottle is 2oz so it’s easy to drink. The Mixed Berry flavor tastes pretty good. It kind of tastes like a jolly rancher candy. The best part has been waking up feeling rested without being groggy. I don’t use it every night, because I don’t have trouble sleeping every night. But when my mind keeps thinking about all the things that need to be done, I’ve found that one 2oz bottle of the 8 Hour Snooze helped me get a good night sleep.

I shared some with my aunt and uncle who were visiting and had been having troubles adjusting their internal clock. After just two nights they felt fully rested and were able to plan a full day of activities. Before they used it, though, they did check with their doctor to make sure it wouldn’t be a problem with their other medications. My aunt had been having trouble getting to sleep for a few weeks, so it was nice to be able to share this with them and help her get the rest she needed so she could enjoy her vacation.

Few people will deny that moms are busy. Between work and family and volunteering, it’s a challenge to get a full night’s sleep. And while we often want to get to bed early, out internal sleep clock is so messed up we’ll end up in bed reading or tossing and turning, or better yet getting up because we’d rather cross off things on our “to do” list than lie awake for hours.

If you think you’d like to try this product, you can sign up for  a trial and will be sent 2 bottles. The cost is about $6.00 for the shipping and handling. The product is FREE, but you do have to pay for shipping. If you would like to order a box, you can get 12 bottles for $35.99. At $3.00 per bottle for a restful night sleep, it’s a great price. However, if you want to order the full case  of 12 bottles, you can save 40% by using the coupon code Saving22350 at checkout.

We all know that a restful sleep is so important for many different reasons. Sleep not only aids in mental clarity, and a good disposition, but it also is a key component to weight loss. My doctor often chides me for not getting enough sleep and I know it’s the main reason I struggle with my weight-loss efforts. Normally, I don’t like to take sleep aids, but I’m more inclined to use something that I’m familiar with (I’ve used melatonin before) that will keep me on the path to great sleep. The benefits of the right amount of quality sleep shouldn’t be something we feel we need to sacrifice.
