4 Things To Do First Thing For A More Peaceful Day

We’ve written before about things you can do in the evening to take some of the load off the next day, as well as the benefits of good sleep hygiene. Hopefully, if you’re putting these tips into practice, you’re waking up rested and refreshed (possibly on your perfectly fitted Regal mattress). Now, what can you do first thing the morning to get your day off to the best possible start?

Don’t use your phone as an alarm

If you’re like the majority of Australians, you’re somewhat hooked into your digital devices most of the time. The average person checks their devices a staggering 85 times per day! Given this, why not give your mind a few minutes of peace before you connect?

How to Sleep Through Hot Summer Nights

The heat doesn’t seem to be letting up, and for those of us without air conditioning, staying cool and comfortable through the night is a constant struggle.

3 Ways Getting Enough Rest Makes You a Better Partner

Valentine’s day is just behind us. When the candles are out and the roses have wilted, it’s up to us to continue being loving, supportive partners, even in the absence of obscene discounts on chocolate.

Taking care of yourself and taking care of your loved ones are sometimes seen as distinct efforts. The reality couldn’t be further from that idea. While some degree of personal sacrifice is a part of every good relationship, if you don’t take care of yourself, you’re not going to make a very good partner to anybody.
