Have Trouble Falling or Staying Asleep?

It seems like I always have trouble staying asleep. I can fall asleep fairly easily but staying asleep is a whole other story.  However, I have found that taking melatonin, turning off all the tvs and lights seem to help. I used to try to sleep with the tv on and that was fine at first, but then it started waking me up. The Mayo clinic has some great tips here https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/insomnia/expert-answers/insomnia/faq-20057824 for not only falling asleep but staying asIeep. One of the things that was mentioned was not having caffeine after 1 pm. If you’re anything like me, you drink caffeine way after that point. But I may have to just stick to water after 1. And as odd as it sounds, it’s also advised that if you can’t go back to sleep within 20 minutes, get up and move around.  I have actually tried that before and it seems to work.  I don’t know why, maybe my brain just needed to wind down again. I do have a lot of anxiety so that’s probably part of my issue with sleep.

I also think that the type of mattress that one has makes a difference too. My mattress needs to be replaced as I’ve had it for awhile. It’s just a traditional mattress, nothing special. I’ve been reasearching different options out there and boy are there a lot of them. Ghost Bed is one of the companies that really caught my attention. Their mattresses just look so comfy! They have an all-in-one foundation for mattress.  It’s easy to assemble which is definitely important to me as I’m not too handy with tools.  And it has a 20 year warranty which you can’t beat. You don’t need a metal frame or box springs, just a mattress to top it off.  Since I’m usually hot natured, I think that the Ghost Bed luxe would be great for me.  And it’s also great for aches and pains, which at my age, I seem to be getting more of.  Oh and I’ll definitely take advantage of the 101 night trial. I mean, I’m sure I’m gonna love it, but mattresses can be a bit of an investment, ya know. Also, there’s free pillows with certain matresses. Who doesn’t love a good pillow? I know I do.

The more and more  I research I really think that Ghost Bed is going to be the direction I need to go so I can get more satisfying sleep. Just looking at all of their mattresses makes me sleepy. I guess that’s a good thing. Maybe not in the middle of the day though.  I have read so many great reviews about these mattresses so I can’t wait to try one out.  I’m ready to get a good night’s sleep and not be so tired during the day. It’ll be nice remembering what 8 hours of consecutive sleep feel like. It seems like it’s been ages since I’ve slept that well. If anyone has bought a Ghost Bed, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Zest Tea Giveaway ends 4/4

This giveaway is brought to you by Zest Tea. All opinions are my own.

The weather is getting warmer so that means you will want to hydrate more! Sometimes water can get boring and who wants to drink a hot coffee to help you wake up in the morning when it’s hot!?

If you are looking for a caffeinated beverage that has no jitters and no crash – check out Zest Tea!  Zest has about 3x the caffeine of normal tea, or about as much caffeine as a regular cup of joe.

 

 

With more caffeine than coffee, discover all-day energy with a steady focus. Each product contains about 120 – 150mg of caffeine. The natural caffeine level of teas varies, so the actual content can be a few milligrams over or under the stated range.

Zest Tea has created a drink that pairs caffeine with amino acids, like L-Theanine–shown to produce a steadier alertness. That means more focus with no crash or sweaty armpits. It’s also made with natural, Non-GMO certified ingredients.

 

 

Please note: Up to 400mg of caffeine per day is generally considered safe. With 120-150mg per serving, Zest’s caffeine levels are comparable to a strong cup of coffee.

 

 

Zest Tea Products:

Sparkling Tea – these come in several flavors: Passionfruit Berry, Spiced Chai Infusion, Pomegranate Mint, Blackberry Lime, Blood Orange Mango, and Cucumber Melon. Set up a subscription and save $20!

Teabags & Loose Tea – there are 6 flavors to pick from. You can get a bag of 1 flavor or get the sampler to try all the flavors. The flavors are Blue Lady, Pomegranate Mojito, Earl Grey, Cinnamon Apple, Spicy Masala Chai, and Superberry Samba. Caffeine: 150mg per cup.

 

All of Zest Tea’s blends are gluten-free and while there is naturally a small amount of sugar in some of the blend ingredients like the fruit pieces, the final brewed product is sugar-free.

 

Giveaway Details:

  • Prize: 12 pack of Sparkling Tea and 20 count Tea Bag of Blue Lady
  • Open to US Residents
  • Ends April 4, 2022

 

This prize will be fulfilled by Zest Teas.
