Thanks to your help last month, we were able to raise $1000 in donations to the Pink Ribbon, Inc. for breast cancer research. This month, we plan to make a difference again, this time for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. So once again, we’re inviting you to help us help others become healthier with a simple “Like” on our Facebook page. With every new “Like” we get, we’ll be donating a dollar to the cause.
Speaking of healthier bodies, the way you rest and wake up play a larger role in your every life than you imagine. Waking up tired reflects on the rest of the day and may make it harder for you to go about your regular activities. On the other hand, waking up alert and bursting with energy can make even the hardest tasks go by quickly. It’s no wonder then that there’s a saying about waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
Now, how do you make sure you wake up in the best condition? While you might think that the amount of sleep you have plays a part in this, there are actually other factors that play a part in ensuring that you wake up on the right side of the bed. Interestingly enough, it goes hand in hand with your health.
Did you know that the right mattress does more than just give you a luxurious feel in bed? A proper mattress that offers you a good night of rest is often one that will help keep your muscles from turning sore and prevent your back from hurting. While you might be swayed by talk of fancy foams and technology in your mattress, experts say that the most important factor will always be comfort as each person has his own definition of a good night’s sleep.
If you find yourself feeling out of shape even after you’ve slept for hours, there might be illnesses or other causes behind your fatigue. One of these is allergies. If you suspect that you’re becoming allergic to your bedroom, you might need to go beyond just cleaning the room.
Allergy triggers are often found in your bed, whether in the bed sheets, pillows or even the mattress. In this case, it helps to replace whatever is old with something new to help you get a good night’s sleep again.
What is your idea of a good night’s sleep? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the Schewels blog.
