Need peaceful sleep and less panda eyes?

Insomnia by Kvirtanen

Insomnia by Kvirtanen

Especially during the exam seasons or rushing an assignment and burning midnight oil. It does mess up our body’s cycle and schedule of when it shuts down to rest and when it’s time to get up, basically to be awake!

I found this article and it gives some really cool tips on how not to have panda eyes when you go to work or college and also to look and feel fresh through out the day.

Sleep like A Baby

Follow this advice to get better rest and wake up refreshed.

By Ellen Mazo and the Editors of Prevention

Follow these tips to help ensure that your time between the sheets leaves you feeling refreshed and renewed:

Make breakfast your heaviest meal of the day.

Digesting food takes energy, so if you eat a heavy meal late in the day, your body will have to work hard to digest it while you’re trying to go to sleep. Many people sleep better if they have protein at breakfast and lunch, and a light dinner with some carbohydrates.

Cut back on the sleep robbers.

Cut out caffeine after 2 p.m., and refrain from drinking alcohol within three hours of bedtime. You may become drowsy after a couple of glasses of wine, but too much alcohol will make you wake up frequently during the night. In addition, although coffee is the most obvious source of caffeine, don’t forget that there’s also caffeine in colas, chocolate, tea, and some medications.

Go toward the light.

Get outside when it’s sunny, or at least turn on the lights at home in the morning. This will help you reset your awake-sleep cycle.

Drink like a fish.

Even mild dehydration—losing as little as 1/2 cup of body water—could turn into low-grade chronic fatigue. Drink eight to 10 eight-ounce glasses of water a day, and add four to six more glasses when you exercise. To prevent unnecessary trips to the bathroom at night, empty your bladder before going to sleep, and don’t drink more than 4 ounces within an hour of going to bed.

Exercise earlier in the day.

Regular exercise first energizes, then relaxes you. So if you start doing calisthenics or aerobics right before bed, nerve-stimulating hormones will be released and will raise your body’s core temperature, preventing you from falling asleep. Exercise—but do it earlier in the day.

Walk into sleep.

You don’t have to walk far to get sleep-enhancing benefits. People who walked at least six blocks a day at a normal pace were one-third less likely to have trouble sleeping, according to one study of more than 700 men and women. Those who picked up the pace had even better sleeping habits. You get the same benefits with walking that you’d get by taking sleep medication—but without the medication’s side effects, such as grogginess, increased snoring, risk of sleep apnea, and possible addiction.

Take a nap.

It’s okay to nap, especially if you didn’t sleep well last night. Research has found that people who nap for 15 minutes feel more alert and less sleepy, even after a bad night’s sleep.

Go to bed only when you’re sleepy.

If you can’t fall asleep within 15 to 20 minutes, get up and leave your bedroom. Go into the living room and read until you’re tired again. Or sit in a chair and think pleasant thoughts: a dream vacation, standing by a waterfall. This should help calm you so that you can return to bed and sleep.

Move the television out of your bedroom.

Your bed and bedroom are for sleep and sex. That’s it. No reading. No talking on the telephone. No worrying.

Create a sleep schedule and stick to it.

You may not be able to go to bed at the same time every night, but you can establish a regular wake-up time. Get up at the same time every morning, even on weekends.

Watch your nighttime posture.

For a restful night, try these strategies:

  • Relieve lower-back pressure by putting a pillow under your knees. The pillow comfortably flexes your lower spine.
  • Try a pillow made with down instead of a foam pillow. You want a pillow that is low enough to support your head without flexing your neck, to avoid neck and shoulder aches. Orthopedic pillows with a scooped-out hollow for your head help support the neck and can also be helpful, especially if you have chronic neck problems.
  • Put enough blankets on your bed to stay warm. You may otherwise unconsciously curl up to keep warm, which can leave you with a sore back.
  • Allow yourself enough room to be able to move your arms and legs and roll over during the night. This is a natural way to prevent your joints from getting stiff.

Take special measures when you’re on the night shift.

You weren’t designed to work the night shift, or rotating shifts, but you may have no choice. So, here are some tips for when you must work while everyone else is asleep:

Use bright lights to mimic daylight, to keep you awake.

Try to stay on the same shift, but if you must rotate, do it by the clock: from days to afternoons to nights.

If you can’t sleep when you get home in the morning, don’t force it. Wait till early afternoon when you have an energy dip.

Try an herbal soother.

Instead of sleeping pills, you might want to try valerian, an herb that can improve your quality of sleep without leaving you feeling groggy the next morning. You need to allow about 2 weeks for valerian to build up in your system. Try taking between 150 and 300 milligrams at bedtime as needed, but give yourself a break now and then to allow your sleep patterns to develop without help. You don’t have to buy the more expensive valerian supplements that have other ingredients or herbs.

We ate at Groovy groovy Sushi Groove… Actually compared to the last time i went to Sushi Groove (over 2 years ago!), the quality of the food was much better than last time and now they are having promotion on 50%off on selected items and the food was of satisfactory level! Nothing much to shout about its just honest, decent food at a good price!

After eating we headed straight for the movie that we have been dying to watch!

Confessions!

Confessions!

I must say Confessions of A shopaholic from the movie and the book is so  erm different (as per normal with movies nowadays.. I call it the Harry Potter effect). Ok.. the book Confessions of A Shopaholic is the first book in a 5 part collection series of Rebecca Bloomwood’s life. The movie showed from the first book to the 3rd or 4th book compressed in a one hour and a half film! I tell you! The movie was very speedy! The small little details from the first book and second are all like.. not existant in the movie! And actually she only meets the editor of the Savings magazine on the 3rd book! That was how compressed the movie was!

But on a lighter note. For those who have not read the book.. I would say that it was a fun and entertaining movie.. well so are all chick flicks!  It was really good and there were lots of ‘oooo’, ‘Ahh’ and other expressions from the audiences in the movie theatre.

Here are the quotes that I love from the movie:

I can’t find the quote to my favourite line in the movie. It is when Rebecca Bloomwood was at one her first meeting at the Shopaholic Anonymous where she just describesthe feeling of shopping! I was like drulling and like going crazy in my heart like I wanna explode! 😀

“When I was 7 most of my friends stopped believing in magic. That’s when I first started. They were beautiful, they were happy. They didn’t even need any money, they had magic cards.”

“You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that’s what it’s like when I see a store. Only it’s better.”

“We all have a destiny in life and since 14 I knew I was put on this earth to shop.”

“I’m Rebecca Bloomwoodand I’m a shopaholic.”

I’ve made so many mistakes and I feel like taking this job would be another one.”

“When I shop the world gets better, the world is better; and then it’s not anymore and I have to do it again.”

I just loved those quotes! I was like going to stand up and run out of the cinema and head straight to Zara! LOL!

THere will definately be a sequel to the movie haha! There are more to the series! (hints: think.. marriage, babies?) Oops! hehe…

My rating : 6/10

After the movie, us three went to Zara straight to have a look at their SALE, pity its only the lady’s stuff having the major mark downs.. I kinda won’t be surprised if saw a mob of ladies lining up in waiting to enter the sale and grab and fight over the clothes just like in Shopaholic hehe… I saw a really nice pair of sneakers in Zara.. maybe getting my new pair soon! My converse is in a mess!

Results expected on Idol?

The Bottom 3: Matt Giraud, Michael Sarver and Scott MacIntyre

The Bottom 3: Matt Giraud, Michael Sarver and Scott MacIntyre

Wow well… I have somewhat a mix of both surprise and also expectation on who is going home from Idol *09.

From my prediction on the previous post, it’s Motown Week on Idol, I got Michael and Scott right for bottom three spot as from my observation that they were way below par from the rest of the contestants. But I was really… really… shocked on Matt Giraud, because he did really well and maybe so did the rest of the idol*09 contestants!

Michael Sarver

Michael Sarver sings out his soul!

I found this article (click here) on Michael Sarver, on what he was going to do life after idol*09, he won’t be going back to his old oil rig job, as he wants to find time to reconnect with family and also might just have a new album as he has over hundreds of songs he had writen since a teen!

Michael

Michael Sarver

Keep a look out on him! I think it won’t be the last time we will be seeing him!
