Habits Of Highly Successful Sleepers

Habits Of Highly Successful Sleepers

I’m a horrible sleeper like it’ll be 2 am and I’ll be wide awake laying in the darkness just up. I’ll wake up the next day after falling asleep at 4 am and be exhausted, my friends who are great sleepers just laugh it off. I guess they don’t understand why I can not sleep. Who can blame them? They’ll fall asleep in minutes, I simply can’t. So I asked How the hell do you guys fall asleep so easily? Here’s what they told me.

..:: My Friends on…How To Fall Asleep ::..

” I have a set bedtime. I go to bed at 11:30 pm every night no exceptions. I can’t risk messing up my internal clock and being thrown off forever!” – Adam,31

“Soft music is key! I turn on whale noises or sounds of the tropics and silently meditate for a few minutes before I know it, it’s morning” – Ashley, 26

“Once I do my nightly routines I’m never up much longer after that, it just feels weird to do things after I shower, wash my face and tie up my hair. That’s like my signal to my brain its bedtime and I need to go to sleep.” – Kara, 27

“I always have a cup of tea. That always knocks me out” – Tavia, 23

“I take melatonin, only when it’s getting late and I can’t sleep. I’m usually out in the next hour.” – David, 25

“Just masturbate, even better have sex! It’s easy, fun, and effective.” – Angie, 34

3 Must-Haves For A Perfect RoadTrip

3 Must-Haves For A Perfect RoadTrip

The rush of a road trip is always exciting! Thinking of a nice relaxing drive to the beach, the lake or just visiting a new town is just fun, however, the packing and planning are not.

Let’s be honest when the trip is a weekend thing or going to a place you’ve never been to it’s easy to get a little flustered. Not to worry, I’ve been road tripping from the age of 5. My parents loved to travel to visit family and friends in different parts of the US and sometimes we had to get ready to get on the road literally in hours! Here are some of my must-haves for a successful road trip.

…:::Have A PlayList Ready:::…

Nothing’s worst (or more dangerous) than having to search for music while driving so have a playlist prepared in advanced. If you don’t have time for a playlist listen to some stories on Youtube. This has honestly been one of my go-to things lately while driving. It’s fun to just get lost in a story especially if you have to drive a while.

 

…::: Comfortable Clothes:::…

This should really go without saying but try to avoid restricting clothing while driving. I had to drive 4 hours back home in denim shorts and I felt so much more constricted then when I wore my jersey dress on the way down, the drive felt much faster too. My favorite go-to travel outfit is a pair of graphic leggings, a V neck tee and maybe a jacket, if not I’m throwing on a tee shirt dress!  As far as shoes nice flats or slides are perfect for driving and not constricting as some sneakers can be.,

 

…:::Directions And Rest Stops:::…

I know there’s google maps and you always rely on them and it’s done you good for years. But there’s nothing worse than driving through the mountains and hearing “GPS signal lost”.  OR seeing that gas light come on and not having a predestined place to stop in the middle of nowhere also taking your eyes off the road to look for one on google isn’t good either. So take it back to the 90’s if you’re on a long drive and print out the directions or set up your GPS to work offline. Also plan out your stops so you don’t have to worry about running out of gas or being annoyed by the ” I gotta pee’ in the back seat, just stop and fill up even if you’re not on E and make sure everyone is fully drained before you get back on the road.

 

The Extras…

We all know at the end of the day it’s all about having fun! Keep the mood up with good snacks and nice but limited energizing drinks, and anything else you might need. I like to take long drives with a neck pillow because I lean and I need my neck to be comfortable.

Don’t forget to have fun while it’s still nice and easy to drive out guys I love road trips you get to see the countryside and make fun stops along the way and possibly make a friend or two and the local watering hole, just be safe!

Sir, You’re Not Persistent You’re Creepy

When guys are younger they’re often taught if a girl says no to keep trying. That’s probably why we have men that don’t quite understand what the word no means. Even if we don’t necessarily say no, if we don’t respond to your message then you […]

My Life: My Life Changed When I Got This Bag

My Life: My Life Changed When I Got This Bag

Over these past few days, everything has been pretty shitty if I’m honest. I was in a fatal car accident and prior to that, I had been so sick that it was painful to swallow.

It got me thinking about how life can change so quickly and suddenly, and how we shouldn’t hold out and wait for certain things. If you want something go for it, if you love someone tell them, and if you want to buy the shoes buy the shoes.

I have a habit of not buying things until it’s too late. I often spend my money on food before replacing my 3-year-old top that looks every bit of 3 years old.

I know it’s weird to hear a girl who writes about fashion say she doesn’t shop but fashion is a lifestyle, not a price tag. It’s Art.

What I’m saying is I’ve been missing a huge part of self-care. I’ve been so busy caring about the inside that I forgot about the outside.

So I told myself, I’m no longer going to wait for something or anything. I’m going to go for it with everything that I have, I’m going to say what I want to say and do what I want to do.

I say this all to get it off my chest and I got a new bag. It’s something that will represent my change and my dedication to my self and my life. Why is this bag important? This bag is something I don’t usually buy, I’m more practical and I’m a nervous shopper if I don’t have something similar to it I don’t get it.

This purchase is so left field for me it’s ridiculous. I absolutely love it and it’s on trend for spring 2019. I also love what it represents and I’m simply hoping that I will keep growing.
