Sleep Awareness Week…

I don’t know about you, but I can’t WAIT until Congress outlaws Daylight Savings Time once and for all! Because, as delightful as “springing forward” sounds, it sure kicks me in the hiney!!! Sleep Awareness Week was launched in 1998 to remind us of the importance of improving our sleep to better serve our mental and physical health.  And it just so happens to be the week following the start of daylight savings time when we all lose an hour of sleep!!  Today I thought I would share some favorite sleep items to help us get through this week.


Sleep Awareness Week … Amazon style

  • Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm – This is a popular alarm that simulates the sunrise as it starts out dim and gets to full brightness 30 minutes later.
  • Sleep Mask – This sleep mask is better than the others because it doesn’t smash your eyes and your lashes! It has thousands of good reviews and I like the extra room it gives your eyes.
  • Essential Oils Diffuser – Diffuse that lavender as you drift off to sleep. This can be used as a nightlight, set a timer, and has a remote control.
  • Cropped Pink Pajamas – How cute is this set for the warmer months?
  • Pullover Tee Pajama Set – I love this casual tee top tucked in, super cute!
  • Long Sleeve Pajama Set – I have this set and love it!
  • Weighted Blanket – This is a cooling weighted blanket that is breathable! It sounds wonderful!


A few more sleeping tips


Having a good sleep schedule is important. But knowing about sleep cycles is even more important because if you wake up before a cycle is over, you won’t feel as good as if you wake up at the end of a sleep cycle.

Did you know that?

I have used this sleep calendar for years and find it very helpful in feeling my best when I wake up each day.

Oftentimes, people with insomnia are low in magnesium. Try taking a magnesium supplement before bed. I take 2 of these each and every night which helps with my blood pressure (recommended by my naturopathic doctor) and I always sleep like a baby!

Another good one, try to be consistent!! And have you heard that every hour of sleep before midnight is worth two after midnight? Put that to the test! I’m a huge believer.
