3 Important Spring Cleaning Tips

Five

Spring is right around the corner, which means it is almost time for the big spring cleaning week. Although this can seem like a daunting task, it can feel very rewarding after everything is done. Here are some tips if you are determined to spring forward with a nice clean slate.

Tip 1

Have a checklist- this is important so you can keep track of your progress and make sure you don’t forget any that may slip your mind during this busy week. Click here for a great example from Martha Stuart.

Tip 2

Have a specific project for each day- that way you can focus and complete each project thoroughly. When there is a lot to do, it can get overwhelming and discouraging if you do not break up your tasks. Every day you will have a small win.

Tip 3

Have all of your cleaning supplies ready- once you look through the checklist, make a list of the items you will need to complete your tasks. Go to the store ahead of time to collect everything you need so you are ready to go before your spring cleaning week.

“I could not be more happy about my FloBed… it provides everything that I‘ve ever been looking for, from comfort to recovery. It is so important to sleep on a healthy Organic bed that can give you more than just a good night’s sleep, but also a restored body upon awakening.

How to Improve Your Mornings

View From the Alegria
Not everybody wakes up each day ready to conquer the world at the first sound of their alarm. If you have ever said to anyone, “I’m not a morning person.” Take a look at some of the suggestions below and give one or some of them a try and let’s see how you begin to feel about your mornings!
1) Down a Tall Glass of Water: You were just asleep but your body was still working, you are most likely dehydrated. Get yourself back on track.
2) Wake up earlier: By setting your alarm 15 minutes earlier, when it goes off, you will not have to get up and rush to get ready. You can take a moment to gather yourself, move at a more comfortable pace and be ready to go before it is time to go!
3) Set 5 Minutes Aside: Give yourself time to just think. Layout your plan for the day, do so with some music on, sitting outside getting some fresh air and take that moment for yourself to center you for the day.
4) Remove Choices From Your Morning: If you want to enjoy all your morning has to offer, make it habitual. By creating a routine, you will make each morning feel smoother, and they will become simple. In addition to that, you should make decisions the night before: what you will wear, plan out your route to work, what you plan to have for breakfast, etc.
5) Remove Screens: Typically now, your smartphone is how you wake up, you have notifications already from your Facebook, Work email, text messages, etc. You are already overwhelmed, and you just opened your eyes. Give yourself time to get through your morning routine before you interact with your phone, tablet or computer

Tips For Falling Back In Time

This Sunday, November 1st, we will all be setting our clocks back an hour. The week following the time change always seemes a little challenging. There are some easy tips you can follow the week before to try to ease into the time change.

  1. Don’s Stay Up Late- “One of the biggest mistakes that people make … is staying up later and thinking that they’re going to get an extra hour of sleep,” Dr. Rosen. Your body is going to want to wake up earlier the next day so do not count on getting an extra hour of sleep.
  2. Set Your Clock Back Early- Set your clock back one hour a week before the change to get a jumpstart on changing your body clock.
  3. Take Your Time- “If you work a non-traditional schedule, or have a little extra time in the morning, it might ease the transition if you go to sleep and wake up 10-15 minutes later each day the week before the time change,” says Dr. Rosen
