Jump Into the New Year with These Tips; Sleep Better and Eat Well

Ahh the New Year- is there anything better than a fresh start? New resolutions, better eating habits, better sleep.

Here’s some new year’s tips to make the start of the new year better than ever.

Sleep More
According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults need from seven to nine hours of shut-eye each night. Unfortunately, not all of us heed this directive. Here are two tricks that might help:
·       If you’d like to be asleep by 10 pm, but find it impossible, try going to bed 15 minutes earlier than your norm for a week. Add another 15 minutes the next week, and so on until you reach your goal. Done slowly like this, you will barely notice the difference.

·       Dress your bed with Celliant® Performance Sheets from Sleepletics™.  These luxurious, silky-soft sheets have been scientifically proven to promote restful sleep and increase energy and stamina among other benefits. 

An FDA-determined medical device and general wellness product, Celliant Sheets have mineral-infused fibers that recycle body heat into infrared energy to naturally increase blood flow and local circulation. 

They’ll make you feel beautiful, as well as energized. Available in chalk, blue, tan and light grey.

Eat Well
We are what we eat – hair, skin and teeth, energy level and well-being, as well as weight and waistline. Start the New Year off right by following these tips gathered from several reputable sources:
·       Drink water throughout the day and say “no” to sugary drinks all the time.
·       Pare down meat intake and replace with fish.
·       Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Aim to make them 50 percent of every meal.
·       Cut down on fat and sugar. Check with your doctor first, of course, before making any radical changes to your diet.
·       Eat three proper meals a day … instead of skipping and binging.

Get Movin’
No matter what shape you’re in, start exercising. With so many choices these days, there’s something for everyone. Find a gym or join an organization like the YMCA that offers a vast variety of reasonably-priced classes. 

Equally important no matter your age, exercising is also a good way to keep the brain active and lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.

Try these tricks to stay motivated:
·       If you already exercise, change your routine once in a while. Find spinning a snooze? Try boxing. Zumba too loud? 

Maybe yoga is more your thing. Whatever it takes, keep your workout interesting so you keep doing it.

·       Ask a friend to join you. Take turns encouraging each other and celebrating achievements, as well as complaining about how sore your muscles are.

·       Wake up rarin’ to go. Celliant Sheets help you feel refreshed and completely recovered,
“packed with energy” as one person said, following the peaceful night’s sleep they provide.

And how about a good night’s sleep? With fresh, new sheets. And have I got a set for you!
