Staying Healthy Between the Pandemic, Back to School, Flu Season, and Winter Coming!

Sleep plays an important role in our health and these days it is more important than ever to keep our immune systems as healthy as can be. Lack of sleep can affect your immune system and studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick and/or take longer to recover.

In a recent survey of women across the USA conducted by WomenCertified Inc, data shows: 

  • 81% of women believe a good night’s sleep contributes to her overall health. 
  • 94% of women believe that the right mattress will prevent tossing and turning thereby helping her sleep better
  • 43% of women said that increasing sleep discomfort followed by 21% who said needing to change the size of the mattress was a reason to look for a new mattress 
  • 40% of women surveyed believe that you should replace a mattress every 10 years. 
  • 78% of women stated cost was a reason for prolonging the decision to change a mattress followed by 36% who felt that their mattress was still in good condition after 10 years
  • Top sleep challenges prohibiting women from getting a good night sleep were: Back/joint pain, temperature (getting too hot/cold) and a close third place tie of tossing/turning, partner disturbance, and insomnia

Mattresses should be replaced every 8-10 years.  While your mattress may look fine on the outside, did you know that an eight-year-old mattress contains more than 10 pounds of dead skin cells and the average bed is home to six billion dust mites. You read that correctly: six billion!

I don’t know about you but that alone makes me want a new mattress today!  

Since you spend a ⅓ of your life on a mattress, it is important that the mattress meet your needs. Mattresses are not all the same.  Making sure you have a good, clean mattress is key to getting good sleep.  

While a mattress is a costly investment, think of it as an investment in your health.  A fresh mattress will help you sleep better and in turn keep your immune system healthy. 

The Shippable Scott Living Mattress by Restonic Mattress has made a huge difference in my sleep. I am so appreciative of the quality rest and sleep I have gotten lately. I would strongly suggest giving Restonic a try and you will find that the mattress is a balance of firm and soft – middle of the road. The mattress is so comfortable with the right amount of comfort for a full night’s sleep. The pictures shown are of a queen mattress – highly recommended.  

The mattress comes in the mail, bubble wrapped, and completely covered and protected. This mattress is rolled and easier to carry up the stairs. I highly recommend carrying up to the location in the box, then opening and removing from the box where it will flatten very quickly. 

The Shippable Scott Living Mattress has an individually wrapped coil base and has coil edging to provide extra support under the memory foam/gel top layer. 

Restonic has earned the Women’s Choice Award as a highly recommended mattress brand by women across the USA and I can see why!

13 Ways to Style Leggings

I have embraced the leggings craze and have found that it works well for all occasions. From athletic wear to work style- leggings are a must.

There are a variety of leggings out there….everything from the $2.00 pair all the way to over $145.

I have tried all different types of leggings and my stamp of approval comes from 4 price categories. The Meijer brand – MTA is quite amazing. These run about $12.00 and are perfect for working out and wearing out for errands. Another good brand I like is Zella Leggings – usually can snatch these up at Nordstrom Rack for $25.00 or Nordstrom on major sale. They are great. The third pair is Spanx – always buy on sale for $64. These are more shiny and packs you into the pant and shows no lumps or bumps. The last pair is $75 on sale – Alo Yoga Pants – these are amazing and soft. I purchased mine at Nordstrom Rack and are so comfortable.

So the picture above shows 13 ways to wear leggings. Tried and true. In these pictures are a combination of all 4 Brands that I mentioned. If you were to ask me which one I would buy if I had to choose just one…I would go with the Spanx. They are middle of the road in cost and do a great job of keeping a great physique no matter if you are slouching, eating cookies, or are not wearing a long tunic. Feel free to let me know your favorite leggings!

Perfect Gift for Going Back to School

The start of school is expensive….whether you are a teacher, parent, or college kid….it is one of the most financially exhausting times of the year.

There are those times during the school year when you will need help….whether it is that meeting you have at work and the neighbor gets your kid or traffic was bad and that teacher kindly stayed with your child when everyone else left, or that grandparent who always goes above and beyond…keep these people on your team.

While the money gates are open, remember to keep the babysitters, grandparents, and teachers in mind when school is starting….a little gift goes a long way!

I am huge believer in rewarding those who are in my tribe and are kind – they are always willing to go that extra mile….

Lovery Gifts have a variety of amazing baskets and I highly recommend them. Prices vary based on budget and a coupon code with your first purchase is a win. I keep one on hand – just in case so I am prepared for that amazing gift that did not break the bank. Check them out http://www.lovery.com And on instagram @loverygifts

I would also mention it is a great gift to send that college kid or a friend who lives far away! Let me know if you have any questions. I highly recommend the products and love the packaging !

Xoxo,
