5 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR MORNINGS EASIER

We wake up every morning with a promise of a fresh start. Click To Tweet The only downside is that you’re always waking up in a foul mood which makes it harder to look forward to the day.

This could be as a result of feeling stressed about the things you need to do, or feeling anxious about something or you’re just too tired even to get out of bed and just want to sleep in.

If you’re a member of the I-HATE-MORNINGS club, then here are 5 tips to help you wake up in a much better mood.

GET ENOUGH SLEEP

Ensure that you’re getting enough sleep first of all. Try adjusting your sleep schedule to ensure you’re getting enough quality hours of sleep. This might include having a consistent sleep schedule or even limiting your intake of caffeine and the use of technology before bed.

PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE

Less complex mornings make it easier to get out of bed and face the day. The best way to ease into the day is do as much as possible before bedtime. Working a few minutes into your bedtime, you get to lay out your clothes for the day, prepare lunch for yourself and your kids, and pack your bag.

Take a warm shower in the morning to improve your mood and then also take a cold shower to wake you up.

QUICK WORKOUT

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU WASH YOUR BEDDING?

 
The number of times recommended to wash sheets, pillowcases and other bedding is primarily dependent on the use and amount of contact with our body.
 
Sheets and Pillowcases
how you should wash your bedding - sheets and pillowcases - bedsheets express
It is quite important to know how often to wash your sheets as we do not sleep alone in our beds. We settle in at night with microscopic dust mites. Washing your sheets regularly reduces the appeal of dust mites to want to live in your sheets which if they do makes the sheets unpleasant for humans.

A good idea is to wash your sheets once a week or every two weeks if you or any member of your family is feeling unwell, be sure to wash your sheets daily or change the pillowcases daily.

 

Pillows
how you should wash your bedding - pillows - bedsheets express
If you make use of pillow protectors and under your pillowcases, you’d probably need to just wash your pillows three times a year. Your pillow protectors, however, should be unzipped and washed once a month.
If however, you don’t use pillow protectors, then you should wash your pillows monthly or once every other month.

 

Duvet Covers
how you should wash your bedding - duvet cover - bedsheets express
Unless something spills on your duvet, you’d only need to wash it once or twice a year.  The duvet cover can be washed weekly.
If there is no separate cover for the duvet, then you have to wash the entire duvet every week and whenever there is a spill or stain.

Types of Morning People

 
From snoozers to coffee addicts to the grumpies, with the beginning of every new day, new opportunities are discovered and how one responds to this early morning call is thought of.
 
We have different types of morning persons and this list is based on how different people respond to the early morning call. Here is a list of the types of morning people we have:
 
Early Birds
We’ve all encountered the early bird and are familiar with this type of people. The early bird is up as soon as the alarm goes off, although sometimes they get up even before the alarm goes off. By the time every other person is just rolling out of the bed at 9 am, the early birds already have completed their morning routine which might include going to the gym, having breakfast, doing some yoga and finally attending to work emails.
 
 
earlybirds types of morning people
 
 
The Coffee Addicts

Don’t try talking to this type before they’ve had their morning charge, you’ll be putting yourself at risk. These type of people do not function properly until they’ve had their morning dose of coffee after which they are ready to take on the world.

 
coffee addicts - types of morning persons
 
The Snoozers
The snoozers are drawn to snoozing as soon as the alarm goes off. They are so much in love with their sleep and hate to roll out of bed but when they do, efficiency is key. They have mastered the art of 2 minutes shower and downing their coffee in record time (legendary!)
 
The Grumpy Folks
These ones aren’t morning persons at all and you do not approach them. The alarm is their mortal enemy and they’d love nothing more than to snuggle deep into their duvets and sleep.
The Living Dead
Lol, also called the walking dead, this type of people are early birds on the outside but on the inside, they aren’t fully awake. Every information passed within the early hours of the morning goes into one ear and out the other.
There are certain things you can do to become a better morning person and here are four (4) tips:
1. Go to bed earlier.
2. Eat breakfast; do not skip breakfast.
3. Exercise.
4. Organize yourself; organize your day, pick your clothes for the next day, prepare your lunch etc. all of these would help your morning routine be less stressful.

How To Make Your Diffusers Last Longer

how to make your diffusers last longer - blog - bedsheets express

It’s really hard to say goodbye to that special scent you wake up to every morning or that fragrance that feels your office with such an energizing mood. So how can you milk your diffuser to the last drop?

Here’s how,

In your reed diffuser, you will have about 8 sticks or more, instead of using them all, diffuse with just half of the sticks

If you don’t need your diffuser running, maybe you need to step out or you’re even travelling, simply place your reeds on a wooden tray until you’re ready to diffuse again.

You can also wait a while before changing your reeds based on your preference.

If you want to increase the impact of the fragrance, you can use a cloth to flip the reeds frequently. The more you flip them the greater the impact.

Keep your diffuser at room temperature away from direct sunlight.

Reduce the use of fans and air conditioning in the room, especially when the diffuser is not in use.

Use few reeds for a small room and more reed for a larger space.

Do not dilute your reeds with oil, water or anything.

 

Try these tips and be sure to give us feedback on how they work out for you.

Till next time.

Tips to tackle insomnia

tips to tackle insomnia - blog - bedsheets express

Hey you!

You find it difficult to sleep at night right?

Or you know someone that does?

Well, this post is for you.

First things first, there are no specific cures to tackle insomnia, but certain steps with proper dedication can easily solve the issue.

Now many things affect our ability to sleep soundly or without any difficulty but I have GOOD NEWS; you don’t need to break the bank to fix this issue. In fact, all you need might be a change of mattress or bedding, simple as that.

Here are a few tips that are guaranteed to give good results.

Increase Melatonin intake:

Melatonin is a sleep hormone with the main role of regulating our sleep cycle to make us sleep and wake easily. The best way to do this is to consume more foods with folic acid, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin c, and zinc. This would entail consuming more chicken, turkey, milk, eggs and seafood.

Stay away from stimulants:

To prevent insomnia, avoid stimulants such as caffeinated drinks and reduce your intake of sugary food to keep blood sugar at an even level. This may require eating whole grain pasta and brown rice as opposed to white rice.

Try herbs and minerals to relax you:

Foods that contain minerals such as magnesium and calcium are vital for solving sleep difficulties. They are perfect for calming your muscles and nerves and relaxing you. Foods such as nuts, green vegetables and whole grains are rich in magnesium. Herbs such as chamomile, passion flower, lemon balm and bitter orange have sleep-inducing properties and can be even used as essential oils in your bath before bed.

Try these easy tips and say goodbye to insomnia.

  • Have you ever suffered from insomnia?
  • Will you try any of the tips mentioned above?

Although we can always find a way around this and develop certain strategies to help get the best sleep, one of which involves food.

Read on to see various changes you can make to your diet that have sleep enhancing qualities.

Almonds

Research shows that eating almonds regularly lowers our risk of developing chronic diseases and heart diseases. They contain healthy magnesium, monosaturated fat, fibre and antioxidants which makes them an excellent source of nutrients. Consuming a reasonable amount of magnesium helps improve sleep quality especially for those with insomnia.

Chamomile tea

This tea contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to certain receptors in your brain promoting sleepiness and reducing insomnia. Studies have shown that people who drink chamomile tea regularly experienced better sleep than those who do not, so this is worth trying.

Kiwi Fruit

Eating kiwi fruit several hours before going to bed can promote better sleep and this is due to their serotonin content. This is a brain chemical that helps regulate your sleep cycle.

Patterns

Patterns play a key role in determining the vibrancy of your bedroom. Two major patterns that would give your room an overall beautiful look are floral and 3D designs.

  • FLORA

    There are endless possibilities with floral designs, from Roses to Tuplis, Lilys and Sunflowers, each floral design is unique and beautiful in its own right, and can add magic to your bedroom! But despite how beautiful floras are, you have to be very careful when picking the design, because they have the ability to break or make the look of your room.
