Lately I have been having issues with getting a good 8 hours of sleep in. Between school, church activities, school, filming and editing, and spending time with friends, I have a hard time getting my 8 hours in! Even though that is the case, I know how important a good night’s sleep is, and I try to take naps when I can to balance out my sleep schedule. Here are 3 ways you can get the most out of your sleep so you can have enough energy to conquer the world!

  1. The best time to nap is between 1-3 pm: Studies say that you are the most awake during the day between 7-9 a.m., and your alertness levels start to drop after 11 a.m. between 1 and 3 p.m. you are at the lowest energy level if your whole day. That is why this is the best time to take a quick nap! Now I know that you are probably in school during this time, but on breaks and weekends keep this in mind!images (1)
  2. Drink coffee before your nap: That sounds a little backwards, right? Caffine takes 20 minutes to start waking you up, so drinking a cup of joe right before you sleep will mean it kicks in right around when you wake up. This helps with that groggy “where am I and what year is it” feeling right after you wake up!
  3. Cut down the screen time: An hour or two before bed, it is important to limit the amount of time you are looking at your phone and the TV. The blue light that is given off from those devices has been shown to suppress the production of melatonin, which is what your body produces to help you sleep. If you are on your phone or watching tv before bed, dim the screen as much as you can to reduce that blue glow.

Hopefully these tips help you catch some zzzz’s.

Odds are, you are a busy girl. You don’t have time to spend hours trying to get your skin squeaky clean. You barely have time to grab your face wash and scrub it on in the morning! Here are a few ways to maintain clear skin while running short on time.images (11)

  1. Eat skin-healthy foods: Eating the right foods is at the root of healthy skin. Processed foods are no good for your skin, plus they will bloat you! Eat lots of healthy foods to help hydrate your skin and keep it protected.
  2. Sleep: Being sleep deprived can cause your skin to become dehydrated. It can also cause premature aging! Want bright, healthy skin? Get those ZZZZ’s!
  3. Simplify your routine: If you don’t have time to cleanse, exfoliate, scrub, and moisturize every morning, that is totally okay! None of us do! If you don’t have time to do a million and one things to your face every day, then don’t sweat it! You can do these things when you have time. No worries!

If you are a busy bee, it doesn’t mean you have to neglect your skin care!
