How to have a better day ahead when you wake up on your Sealy

You know those days when you wake up just feeling grumpy and out of sorts, and somehow it affects your mood for the rest of the day?

Well, YOU have control over how you feel, and adding these little routines to your morning can set the tone for your day.

Before I go to sleep at night, I make sure I use hydration products to keep my skin moisturized during the night. I crawl into my Sealy, hug my bolster, and sleeeeeeep.

Here are some tips on how to have a happy, calm day starting from the moment you wake up. Remember that it's a private time you should have that is 100% focused on you :)

1. Snooze

Tell yourself that you're allowed to snooze once a day. And make sure it's only once. If you feel really groggy in the morning, try the SleepCycle app for the iPhone which measures your sleep cycle and wakes you up at the lightest point of your sleep!

2. Try to visualize what you dreamt about

I do this in the morning and it helps me remember my dreams! Then I'll either type it out on my phone or write it on a rough piece of paper. Dreams are a reflection of your subconscious and can reveal what's actually lurking in your mind that you've tried to forget or push aside. It's eerily accurate.

Unless you had a nightmare, then by all means, skip this for the day.

3. Draw the curtains/Turn on the light

This will wake your brain and force your body to be alert!

4. Don't reach for the phone just yet!

I know you've synced your email, your facebook notifications, whatsapp chats all on your phone, but checking them first thing in the morning will dampen your mood. Yes you have a TON of things to do, but that can wait. Give yourself some alone time first!

5. Stretch and give a bigggg yawn

This increases your flexibility, improves circulation and relieves tension. So I say, why not???

After practicing these in the morning, I feel more refreshed than ever and am ready to start my day. Thanks to Sealy for the well rested sleep, I can concentrate and stay focused at work!

Be sure to drop by their flagship store at Tanglin to try them out for yourself!

Cure insomnia - without the sleeping pills with Sealy

Forget the sleeping pills that make you feel like a slave. Sleeping should be an enjoyable activity. Remember the good old days when you used to sign autograph books and your favourite hobby was sleeping? Turn that into a reality again with these techniques.

I've compiled some suggestions that you could try to help you drift off to sleepyland - the natural way.

Sniff Aromatherapy

Have you ever tried aromatherapy? It's amazing. I just love the smell of lavender or eucalyptus after a stressful day. If burning essential oils aren't your thing, get an eye mask or even a little sachet of dried potpourri and place it near your bed! Inhaling them during the night also helps to ensure continued relaxation so you don't get interrupted sleep that often.

 Make sure that your lights are off and your electronic devices (eg, handphone, tablet, laptop) are far away from your reach. Create a conducive environment for an important time of your day!

Claire's own remedy

Here's a little trick that I use to fall asleep when my mind just can't seem to switch off.

Step 1: Take a deep breath. Inhale. Exhale. Do this about 3 times.

Step 2: Starting with my face, do a top to toe check to make sure you're relaxed. Are you frowning subconsciously? Are any muscles in your body tensed? Relax them!

Step 3: Feeling more calm already? Think of a black circle. Now expand that circle as wide as you can.

Sometimes I fall asleep at Step 2 hahah.

 Once sleeping becomes enjoyable again, you'll be more attached to your bed than ever!

Get a Sealy Mattress

You knew this was coming. I haven't had insomnia ever since I had my Sealy mattress and I'm positively sure it's because of how comfortable my bed is!! Sometimes I'm just lying in bed texting and next thing I know, I'm fast asleep. Not kidding!! Their revolutionary Posturepedic Titanium Coil supports my body whichever direction I turn by distributing the weight.

Nothing's gonna change my love for my Sealy

Take a warm bath

Candles, rose scents in the air (or the smell of your fragrant shower gel) and some alone time is a wonderful way to prep yourself for bed. Without that sense of urgency and rush, your mind relaxes. Taking a warm bath will raise your body temperature slightly, and when you get out, the rapid cooldown will mimic the natural temperature drop the brain triggers as it prepares for sleep.

I like taking a shower before sleeping because being clean kinda makes me feel like I'm washing all the grime from the day away and the next day's going to be better. Therapeutic! 

Pamper your mind and body by investing in a mattress that will bring tons of intangible benefits!!

Cut the Caffeine

I remember once I had supper with friends around 11pm and I ordered milk tea. That little drink kept me up til 4am even though I was physically exhausted! Did you know that half the amount of caffeine you've consumed stays in your system even after 5 hours?? For best sleep results, try to stop taking any caffeine products after lunch. Your body will thank you later.
If all else fails, try a new sleeping position.

What's the secret to having good skin, a better complexion and that special glow? Having enough sleep! 
I feel energetic and alert as long as I get my 8 hours on my Sealy and other mattresses (yes, sometimes even in hotels) don't make me feel as well rested.

I hope you enjoyed reading these tricks you could try to cure your insomnia. Did it work? Let me know in the comments below if you have other suggestions or your remedies too!
