I almost forgot, did you remember that Sunday, November 2nd marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. Come 2:00 AM, we will turn our clocks back an hour. Although we gain this extra time, this also means shorter, colder, winter days, which will make us all want to spend more time sleeping. OH, it surely will be like Heaven on earth, more time to sleep, YIPPEE!
I am aware that not everyone changes time in the country and in the world. I am not sure if it is fortunate or unfortunale but we do in Miami. Are you one of those people that awaits the changing of time? I don’t like the day it changes forward but I enjoy the day it changes backward, it is total BLISS! That time makes a great difference for me, lol! Sure hope it does for you too!
Let me share with you a few tips on how you can make sure you’re getting the best night’s sleep possible.
DE-STRESS AND UNWIND
It’s important to take time to unwind before bed to ease the mind because a consistent routine every day can help you fall asleep more quickly and reliably. Lighting an aromatic candle will help calm the nerves before bed.
As a mom, we know this is not always possible but as a reminder it is a good to attempt and am sure it would be a pleasant experience. Can you imagine curling up with your spouse and enjoying the moment in time?

NOURISH AND REGENERATE
While we sleep, the cells making up our skin are hard at work trying to repair all the damage that has been accumulated during the whole day overnight. This is the time to utilize nighttime skincare to help repair, nourish and regenerate. Oh, I thoroughly enjoy a nice warm bath after a day’s work and enjoy my hubby gently rubbing the cream on my back, it is so soothing and relaxing at the same time and develop a nighttime skincare moment, Enjoy!

THE PERFECT MATTRESS
People sleep for approximately one third of their lives and studies have shown the benefits of sleep have long-lasting effects on your health and well-being. Look for a mattress that has natural fibers such as hypoallergenic horsehair that acts as a mini ventilation system eliminating moisture and allowing fresh air in for a comfortable night’s rest. Oh, this is but a dream and pending on my to do list! One day it will come true. Do you have your dream bed?

OLD SCHOOL REMEDY
If all else fails, try a glass of milk. There’s a reason why your grandma always told you to drink warm milk—
it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps induce sleep.We all know that a warm glass of milk on the stomach is really relaxing and detressing before bedtime, don’t we do that with the kids, it is certainly good for parents as well!
