Getting snuggled up in bed at the end of the day is one of my favorite things. Sometimes I can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Other times, it takes me an hour or so to even get tired! There are certain things I do that help me fall asleep on those nights. If you have trouble sleeping, try out some of these tips. They really work! 

  • Cut down on caffeine intake. Chelsea Crockett - Falling Asleep Meme If caffeine affects you in even the slightest way, then watch how much you drink of it!  If you love coffee, tea, etc., then monitor what time of the day you have it.
  • Hide your clock.  When I can’t sleep, I often get frustrated when I watch the time get later and later.  Turn your clock around or shut off your phone!  That way you won’t be tempted to sneak a peek at the clock.
  • Light a lavender candle.  Lavender is proven to be one of the most relaxing scents for your body.  Lighting a candle or spraying a lavender scent around your room before you go to bed is extremely calming!
  • Focus on your breathing.  Focusing on one thing can take your mind off the fact that you can’t fall asleep.  Focus on keeping slow and steady breaths!
  • Picture yourself in your favorite setting.  Whether that be at the beach or surrounded by your friends and family, focusing on your happy place will help calm any nerves or anxious thoughts you may be having.

 Hopefully these help you get a little more sleep to keep you energized during the busy weeks ahead. I know I need it!

For me, getting out of bed is a chore.  I can hit my snooze button again and again before I force myself to actually start my day.  If you’re a morning person, you might find it easy to hop out of bed, but for those who aren’t morning people, you could use a few tips on how to make getting out of bed an easy part of your day!

  1. Turn the temperature up in your room.Chelsea Crockett - Staying in Bed  I know for me, it’s so much harder to get out from under my warm blankets when my room is freezing cold.  Turn up the thermostat to make it easier on your body.
  2. Prepare a good breakfast to look forward to.  I’m much more willing to get out of bed when I know I have a delicious meal ahead.  I love food, so this acts as a little reward or motivator!
  3. Switch up your morning routine.  It’s hard getting out of bed when you know you have the same boring routine to go through.  Switch it up a little!  Maybe change breakfast meals or workout in the morning instead of after school.
  4. Go to sleep earlier.  This may seem like common sense, but getting a good amount of sleep will make you feel more alive in the morning!
  5. Open up your blinds or curtains.  This might seem like the last thing you want to do, but if your room is pitch-black, you’ll never want to get out of bed!

I hope this makes your mornings a little less dreadful!

Sleeping can be tough when you want to look your best.  The messy hair, slobber, and puffy eyes are all part of the package!  Although it can be tough to rise and shine, here are a few tips and tricks to wake up feeling like Beyoncé…flawless!

  1. Switch out your cotton pillowcase for a satin one. Turning over in the night can cause fizziness and breakage. Satin allows your hair to glide, diminishing frizz!
  2. For whiter teeth, mix a small amount of baking soda and water together to create a paste. Once you’ve brushed your teeth as you normally would, brush your teeth again with the baking Chelsea Crockett- baking soda for white teethsoda mixture. This will erase surface stains. Since you can’t eat or drink for an hour after doing this, nighttime is the best time!
  3. If you tend to wake up with dry skin, try using a humidifier at night. This will add moisture to your skin as you sleep!
  4. Dry feet? Try rubbing on a generous amount of foot cream and putting on cotton socks after wards!
  5. If you tend to wake up with a puffy face, try sleeping on your back and elevating your head! This will prevent unwanted/extra fluids from flowing to your face.
  6. First and foremost, always get enough sleep!

Happy sleeping Insiders!
