Can you sleep?

There’s nothing worse than not being able to go to sleep when you get into bed.  Your intention is to get a good night’s sleep, but then you just can’t shut your mind down and relax your body.

There are many things you can do like listening to soothing music, counting sheep, and drinking warm milk or perhaps a warm bath before bed.  All these steps certainly do not hurt.  And they say, if you can’t sleep just get out of bed.  That way, you won’t have negative thoughts about your bed.

Part of the solution is training your mind.  Select a word that helps the body to relax, like the word “peace”.  Think about that word two or three times a day and feel the relaxation that sweeps over your body.  Another trick is meditation, which is good for us in many ways.  The key is to reduce stimuli.  Try some stretching exercises before bed, visualize success, breathe deep, and exercise during the day and not close to bedtime.

Another important factor is to have the right bedding.  You want to create a soothing oasis of calm and relaxation.  It’s important for the body to be cradled in a bed that feels wonderful to the body.  Old bedding can result in discomfort and poor sleep.

Once I improved my bedding, by adding a mattress pad,  a featherbed like they have at upscale hotels, soft Egyptian cotton sheets,  a lightweight down blanket, a lightweight down comforter, and the best down pillows, I started to sleep better and deeper.  Finally, I added a duvet because I wanted color on my bed.  Anything you can do to add comfort to your bed will help.

Here’s wishing you a good night’s sleep.  We are here to serve you and your bedding needs.

Rainy Days and Mondays

It’s rainy and cold out today and I am so sleepy.  You’d think it was Monday!  I’m sitting here with my laptop and working on my website, www.downtosleep.com, drinking a freshly brewed cup of hot Green Tea.

Do you remember the song, “Rainy Days and Mondays” by The Carpenters?  The lyrics go like this: “Talkin‘ to myself and feeling old; Sometimes I’d like to quit; Nothing ever seems to fit; Hangin’ around, nothing to do but frown; Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.”  Yep!  That’s about how I’m feelin’ today.  How about you?

You know what?  It’s O.K. to feel like that once in a while.

I think I’ll go take a nap.  Wishing you a wonderful, comfy, and lovely day!

The Gift of Winter

As I sit here writing this post and drinking my coffee, I look outside and see the snow on the trees and roofs of the surrounding homes and just want to stay inside to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. It’s the dead of winter, and I don’t feel like doing anything!

Maybe that’s the point. Maybe it’s a time to just lay low, reflect, and gear up for Spring. I knew there had to be reason for this somewhere. Maybe it’s time to just let go of all the old dead stuff that holds us back and plant some new seeds. It certainly gives us something to look forward to.

So, I will use this time to think about the seeds I want to plant that will bloom in May. Maybe that’s the message of the seasons.

Nature does it all so naturally. Maybe we should too!
