Do you feel rested with that extra hour of sleep from Daylight Savings? Even though we "fall back," our bodies still need time to adjust.
How can you ensure you feel rested? Control the lights! Remember to turn off the screen at least 30 minutes before bedtime. Bright light can reduce sleep time and sleep quality as well as daytime alertness. Dim the lights at night before bedtime. Try to let in natural light (or soft light) in the morning as you begin the day.
What does your bedroom look like? Is it neat and tidy? Or do you sleep in a pig sty? Clean up your room tonight for a better sleep zone!
Your room can affect how well you sleep at night. If your bedroom is messy, your brain might be too distracted to fall asleep. A clean room leads to the best RECHARGE!
Are your favorite colors bright and bold? That's perfect for showing off your personality, but remember to keep it calm when decorating your bedroom!
For a fantastic night's sleep, remember to use calming colors in your sleep zone...gray, white, or beige. Soft tones create a relaxing space for you to enjoy quiet activities and can help you sleep tight each night!
Make your room the ultimate sleep zone! From soft blankets to dark curtains, gather everything you need and spend some time perfecting your sleep zone.
A good sleep zone is the perfect temperature, is dark at night, and has no distractions to keep you awake. A sleep zone might have dim lighting, soft blankets, comfortable pillows, shades to block sunlight, and/or uncluttered surfaces and floors.

Relaxing and spending quiet time in your bedroom helps you RECHARGE your energy. Stretch in the morning, read a story before bedtime, and when you catch yourself looking for something to do on the weekends, sneak into your room and enjoy the personal space.
