Why Sleep Is Important12:00 AM
Disclosure: I was provided with the Sapira™ mattress for the purpose of this post.
All opinions stated here are my own.
I started focusing on sleep early. For the past five years my husband and I plan our whole day to ensure we can get (about) eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. We start our day early. On some days we get straight to work and on other days we get in our workout first thing in the morning. It changes on daily basis as per our work schedules. But what does not change is our evening routine. Here's what we do:
Plan our meals: We usually plan our meals once a week to take the thought and uncertainty out of the routine. It not only saves us time, but also helps us stick to our healthy eating habits. We usually have our dinner around 6:00pm.
Time to unwind: After our meal we spend time catching up on the previous night's shows on our DVR. That is our daily dose of entertainment. We love watching television and movies. You can say they are third on our list of priority after working-out and sleep.
Catch up on news or read: Then we head to our zen zone: bedroom! We spend about an hour reading (me: books, him: news on phone). This is the only time I find to read a book. I try my best to squeeze it in, no matter what.
Sleep time: Around 9:30pm - 10:00pm we call it a night and get comfortable in our new plush mattress Sapira™. Now of course, we have been sleeping at the same time and following the same routine for past five years but it was not until last 2 weeks that we have had a sound sleep. For the past fortnight, we have been looking forward to wrapping-up our day (asap) and getting into our bed simply to enjoy the luxury of our mattress!
