Did anyone wake up with a grumpy, sleepy child this morning? If your child or teen is not getting to bed on time, try the "Kid Power-Down Hour". First 20 minutes shut off all electronics and get organized for the next day; second 20 minutes is for personal hygiene - bathe, brush teeth, etc; and the last 20 minutes is for a quiet like reading. The key for kids is sticking to a regular schedule of sleep friendly activities.

Cheers to Thursday! We started our day with a morning walk because exercise is so good for sleep. If you don't have time in the a.m. for exercise, make sure you fit it in during the day when you can. What is your favorite form of exercise?

Some days we just have to talk ourselves out of bed to get up on time - I think I can...…I know I can...…I can get up this morning! If you got up on time this morning, go ahead and reward yourself with a little gift today. Enjoy!

Still dragging from the weekend? Try resetting your sleep clock…. Power down early and get to bed at a reasonable time. Aim for 7.5 hours of sleep tonight. Sweet dreams!

It's a great time for spring cleaning in the bedroom this week!… Don't forget to check your pillow. If it needs to be replaced, consider a pillow from Dr. Breus' pillow collection at Brookstone.com . http://ow.ly/uPuHS

Thinking about aromatherapy to improve sleep? Lavender, chamomile or ylang-ylang essential oils are great scents to use to make your own pillow spray. We'd love your feedback if you try one of these scents.
