STOP SLEEP TALKING WITH THESE METHODS

Have you ever woken up to people asking “what were you saying in your sleep?” Or you’ve woken up to your partner talking while sleeping? Somniloquy is also known as sleep talking is a sleep disorder that can be almost embarrassing. You find a sleep talker speaking in an unknown language or talking in full sentences.

Sleep talking can be mild, moderate and severe. A mild case can be talking in your sleep once a month, moderate could be once a week while a severe case would be talking every day.

Stress and not getting enough sleep can be a reason for sleep talking. Here are a few ways to stop sleep talking if you struggle with this:

Get enough sleep: This is a no brainer. Adequate sleep is the sleep that lasts for up to seven to nine hours. If you’re waking up too early or sleeping too late, you may find yourself talking while sleeping. A sure way to fix this is creating a sleep schedule that allows you to get the required hours of sleep you need as an adult.

Eat light meals before bed: Eating heavy meals before bed will have you battling insomnia. Sleep deprivation is a major cause of sleep talking. To avoid this, get rid of the carbs before bedtime and opt for proteins and vegetables which are high in nutrients and will help you sleep. Remember, it’s best to eat three hours before bedtime.

Create a bedtime routine: A bedtime routine that relieves stress will stop you from chatting in your sleep. An hour before bedtime you can have a cold shower or a hot bath depending on the weather limit the use of technology, play soothing music and journal or meditate. What this does is that it relaxes you which improves sleep.

Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Drinks made with caffeine makes it difficult for you to fall asleep while alcohol in your system before bed will have you waking up in the middle of sleep and which makes you tired and drowsy the next day which results in your sleep talking the next night.

Monitor your habits: You can track what’s making you sleep talk by monitoring your sleeping habits. Take note of the food you ate, the time you went to bed, and the medications you’ve taken before going to bed. Do this for a few weeks and write down your observations. Did you sleep talk when you took a particular medication? Or when you exercised? These observations will help you tailor your habits to reduce sleep talking what your sleeping position says about your personality 4

Why You Should Be Using Aromatherapy Candles and Diffusers

If you’ve heard about aromatherapy, you’ve probably been wondering what exactly it is and why people in the health and wellness community seem to rave about it and all its benefits.

Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that uses essential oils and plants extracts to improve the wellness of the mind and the body.

It is time for you to jump on the train of aromatherapy and reap its benefits that have been used for centuries before us. We’ve listed 4 reasons why aromatherapy should be incorporated into your wellness and self-care routine.

  1. It is Scientific

Firstly, aromatherapy is actually scientifically proven to aid in wellness. This is because it uses all-natural essential oils and plants extract to improve your health. There is evidence to show the connection between certain extracts and relaxation, reduction of nausea, elevated moods and other psychological benefits.

  1. There is an Aromatherapy for Everything

The diversity of nature and its plants means that there is almost always an essential oil for all wellness issues. The benefits of aromatherapy are endless because of its endless varieties. Take this as an example: peppermint oil can relieve nausea, lavender oil is used to relax you and relieve anxiety, and lemongrass has antiviral properties and is great for cleansing your digestive system. These examples are just some of the benefits from a few essential oils!

  1. There are no side-effects

Aromatherapy has no negative side-effects! So now you have safer wellness options to choose from than succumbing to other harmful medical means. Think of all the side-effects of the pharmaceutical drugs that help relieve headaches or that help put you to sleep. With aromatherapy, you need not worry about all those negative side-effects you are scared of.

  1. Aromatherapy is all Natural

If you are picky about your wellness and are the kind that likes to ensure that you live an organic and natural life, then aromatherapy is for you. Obviously this is not to say that there aren’t some brands that mix natural with other artificial infusions. Know your brand, and choose natural essential oil blends.

 

The benefits of aromatherapy are endless and should be invested in for wellness purposes. Because of the wide variety of its benefits and the broadness of aromatherapy, Bedsheets Express provides its customers with a range of aromatherapy candles and diffusers to increase their wellness.

4 Places You’re Forgetting To Dust at Home

We’re all used to cleaning certain places in our homes and neglecting others. Like clockwork, we concentrate on certain nooks and crannies till we get it all cleared out for the day. Our cleaning usually happens every week, perhaps when we have time on our hands over the weekend. But there are certain places that end up cumulating dust and are left unnoticed. We must ensure we pay attention to these areas of the home that are left unattended to and harbour germs.

Lamp Shades

It’s very easy to forget the inside of your lampshades while doing your weekly cleanings. It seems so insignificant and dust cumulates under there without being undetected – perhaps this is why we avoid it because we often clean the noticeably unclean things first.

Using a lint roller or an old pair of cloth or tights should do the trick in cleaning your lampshades.

how-to-clean-your-window-blinds--bedsheetsexpress

Blinds

This is one place in a room that is quick to accumulate dust and be left unnoticed. It usually is part of the barrier between the indoors and outdoors, and because of this, it gathers dust that could cause allergies in your home.

To remove the dust, use a slightly dampened cloth to run over it carefully, going through all its nooks and crannies.

how-to-clean-your-picture-frames--bedsheetsexpress

Pictures

Picture frames are often a neglected area as well, especially bed-side pictures. Use a dampened cloth to carefully remove dust from your frames. The glass section of the frame should be wiped with your usual glass cleaner or with warm vinegar and water.

how-to-clean-your-inside-drawers--bedsheetsexpress

Inside of Drawers

We are continuously seeing a pattern in this list – neglected parts of the home are the hidden and unnoticed areas to visitors. These undusted places in our homes become our “dirty little secrets” – literally. But as explained, these dirty places are harbour grounds for germs that cause health issues.

The inside of the drawer is one of such places that need dusting. Use a damp cloth and clean it up, leave it open for a while after dusting in order to air it out.

So there you have it, these are places you shouldn’t miss while doing your weekend chores.

What are the other places you’ve found that you often neglect while dusting/cleaning?

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR MATTRESS CORRECTLY

The bed mattress can mould or can be stained with different things, such as urine, red wine or blood. Sometimes, the mattress can catch a bad smell that isn’t very pleasant nor hygienic for sleeping. So, learn how to clean your mattress using natural solutions, and how to get rid of the unpleasant smells from it. 

The vacuum cleaner removes the dust from your mattress.

Before washing or removing any fibre stains from your mattress, you have to dust the fine particles, such as food scrap-leftovers when we eat in bed.  Vacuum well the mattress on both sides to get rid of all dust particles that cause allergies. 

Get rid of blood and urine stains from the mattress.

If the mattress was stained with blood or urine, you need an organic detergent to decompose proteins and the uric acid from the fabric without ruining it. 

Don’t use hot water to remove organic stains because the high temperature can cause the stain to get deeper into the fabric. 

Mix 1 part of cold water with 2 parts of baking soda and dab well the stained area.

Once you rinse the place well, let it dry thoroughly, or even use a hair dryer to make sure there is no moisture left in the mattress. 

You can get rid of urine stains and unpleasant odours with a baking soda, vinegar and water solution.

How to get rid of mould stains from your mattress.

If your mattress has mould stains for various reasons, you have to leave it to dry in the sun for a few days. You can use a warm air fan to speed up the drying process. 

Mix vodka with lukewarm water and use a sprayer to spray the entire mouldy surface. Let it dry out well.
