We all know how important getting a good night's sleep is to not just our overall health, but for how we feel. On those days that I don't get enough rest I just don't function the way I am supposed to and it makes for a very long day. great night's rest is the beginning of a great day and that's why having an evening routine can go a long way to setting us on the right track to catching that all important sleep and rest.

One of the things that can make for a sleepless night is a bout of heartburn. On those days that I am suffering from from heartburn I add a banana smoothie to my evening routine that really calms down the effects of heartburn. It's a super easy recipe with just a few ingredients that you can enjoy a few hours before bed. Let me show you how easy it is to make it. 

Banana Smoothie 
(serves 2)
1 1/2 cups of skim milk
1/2 cup ice
2 whole bananas
1/2 cup greek yogurt
4 tablespoons of honey

Prep: in a blender add all ingredients: bananas, honey, yogurt, milk and ice. Blend until smooth and serve immediately. 

This banana smoothie is not only delicious but it has helped with the discomfort of acid reflux and helps soothe my throat. 

For continued treatment of heartburn Nexium 24HR is another tool in my evening routine, and if I am suffering from minor aches and pains I reach for Advil PM. Both of these tools go a long way to getting not just sleep, but the rest my body and mind need. 

Every person encounters their own unique hurdles on the path to a great night's rest so Walgreens is highlighting a few great products to help eliminate different sleep struggles. From Nexium 24HR's frequent heartburn treatment to Advil PM's pain relief and sleep aid, or Emergen-Zzz's* easy to take nighttime sleep aid with Melatonin During the month of March, customers can earn 3,000 Balance Rewards points (a $3 value) when they purchase 2 of the following participating products: Emergen-Zzz, Nexium 24HR, or Advil PM. 

I'd love to know what some of your sleep solutions are for getting a good night's sleep.
