HOW MY KIDS ARE GETTING BETTER SLEEP + TIPS
HI DARLINGS! you ever get home with the kids and they sit down to do homework and next thing you know they are asleep at the dining table? Yeah well that was happening often around here so I decided I would use the same sleep habits I am learning from my collaboration with Sleep Number® on the kids.
Ever since I started focusing on better sleep I have been obsessive about learning how sleep affects our entire life so I made it a priority to ensure my family was getting the rest they needed…. I even have talked my friend’s ears off about it.
After about two weeks or so on the new schedule I started to notice a change. Instead of crawling out of bed in the mornings they were more awake and it took me less time to get them going. I also noticed a lot more healthy energy after they got home from school.
Sleep Number® i8 for about two months now and I love it! It’s funny how much we think we know until you are looking at facts. I use to think that I liked a soft mattress but after sleeping on my Sleep Number® i8 I noticed that I got better sleep when I had my mattress much firmer. The other really interesting thing I noticed is how restless I became around 3am.
Now that I have found my correct Sleep Number® setting I see very little restlessness throughout the night. Waking up and checking my SleepIQ score became a fun game, LOL! Every night I tried to beat my previous score. I sleep great now!
Now we try to make sure there is some fun playtime scheduled into the day (after homework of course) so that they get all worn out for a good night’s sleep! You may want to try some of these tips and please let me know if they help you.
