Alaska Sleep Clinic’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway has begun!
The new year has begun and that means its time to pull out your resolutions. Do you have any new resolutions on your list or are you making the same resolutions that you seem to keep failing at?
Year after the most common resolutions are healthy eating, exercising more, and stopping smoking. And year after year most people find that their resolutions fall by the wayside within a few weeks to months.
Have you ever wondered why so many people fail at accomplishing worthwhile goals? The answer is simple: sleep. When you are sleep deprived or have poor sleep you are less likely to accomplish your goals because you are tired.
This year, instead of making the same old resolutions again, try making a goal for better sleep. A good night’s rest is the basis for making and keeping resolutions for a healthy lifestyle.
The day after Thanksgiving isn't a day of rest for everybody. Some people need to go back to work on Friday. Some sign up to run turkey trot 10Ks or marathons. Others dedicate their day off to volunteering by helping the less fortunate at soup kitchens. But for many Americans, that jump on the long weekend means shopping: waking up early and getting out of the house for Black Friday sales.
Some shoppers, famously, get in line on Thursday night and camp outside stores so they can get a jump on the competition when the doors open. Some stores open as early as midnight to accommodate eager customers fueled by the excitement of getting good deals before inventory runs out.
Trick or treat, who wants to sleep? Mom and Dad do!
Halloween is almost here and the stores are loaded with sugary goodness – Snickers, Butterfingers, Reese’s – mmmm. While the little ghouls and goblins are prowling from door-to-door, what do you do? Dip into the pot and enjoy a few Milky Ways or Starbursts. With all that walking, you have to keep your blood sugar up, right?
