Activities To Do When You Are Bored And Can't Sleep At Night
So it’s 3 am and you’re wide awake because you drank too much caffeine during the day. While staring blankly at the ceiling for the next couple of hours in silence might be strangely relaxing, here’s how you can put your sleepless nights to more meaningful use.
Get some Housework Done
You’ve most likely forgotten to wash that blouse 3 weeks ago. And worst of all, you are breaking out with pimples because you’ve forgotten to clean your makeup brushes! Take the time to do some late-night cleaning to relieve yourself of housework in the coming days.
Catch up on your Drama Series
Let’s face it, when you’re mugging in the day and rushing to-and-fro school, you’ve no time to catch up on your favourite dramas. Turn on the AC, grab a comfy blanket or onesie (and a box of tissues if you’re watching a Romantic Korean Drama) and enjoy your drama marathon.
Drink Chamomile Tea
Chamomile tea is notable for its relaxation properties because it contains no caffeine at all. In fact, according to Slumber Wise, Chamomile tea has been known to combat anxiety and stress amongst insomniacs. Be sure not to make too big a cup, otherwise, you’ll be waking up to go to the bathroom throughout the night.
Give yourself a Pamper Night
Soak in a bubble bath or give yourself a DIY facial! Experiment the bath bomb collection from Lush Cosmetics (from $9 dollars onwards) and the Korean Sheet Mask selection from Innisfree (from $2 onwards).
