Even Morning People Sometimes Have Trouble Getting Out of Bed

A lot of people simply bounce out of bed at the crack of dawn (or even earlier) full of energized, ready and enthusiasm to manage the day ahead, but for others the story is extremely different. Many people are not, and not will be “morning people”, but the problem is that the vast majority of us can’t enjoy the luxury of lying in bed until 9 or 10 – work happens and there is a time clock waiting for us, or school runs happen, life happens – there just aren’t enough hours left in the day after a good lie-in.

Don’t worry, even if you’re the type of person going to snooze on your own alarm clock and roll over returning to sleep there are some tips and tricks which you can use that will help you in your task.

• Get to bed a little earlier, as soon as you feel tired. I realize, I’m commencing to sound like your Mom but unfortunately it is very true. Don’t be tempted to stay up later than you should in order to complete some project or watch the end of your movie. If you go to bed at roughly the same time each night your body clock will adjust and you’ll be able to drop off to sleep quite easily . . . and more importantly wake up very easily feeling refreshed.

Prior to going to bed – this is a good one, • Pick your clothes out for your following morning. How many times would you lay in bed for a good 5, 10 and even 15 minutes as you can’t visualize a thing to use admit it? It saves having to make any sort of decision so at the beginning of the day.

• Move your alarm clock to the other part of the room – ouch! Most of us are programmed to hit the “snooze” button without even gaining consciousness and that’s bad. That’s the difficulty. If your alarm clock blares out to you from all over the other side in the room you’ll have to get approximately turn it off. I know it’s nasty but nobody said this would be pretty.

• Have a glass water next to your alarm / time clock – and drink it down, the entire glass once you turn off the alarm. This will help your body to appreciate that it is actually time to rise up now. A lot of us need rehydrating in the mornings and this really does help to get out of bed the body and also the brain.

• Get active – okay, so the idea of a 5 mile run may not exactly fill you with the enthusiasm to drag yourself out from bed in the mornings but exercise truly does help you to sleep soundly . . . which actually helps you to get out of bed feeling refreshed the following morning. Running is not required, walking will work, cycling is nice, dancing is great fun and doesn’t need good weather . . . what about your Wii? Do something which involves moving.

• Keep a well stocked bathroom library – many people do the majority of their reading inside the bathroom and if that seems like you, make sure that there’s something interesting for you personally in the mornings as you go about your early biological needs. It can make the whole experience a lot more pleasant and may even encourage you to rise up a few minutes earlier to finish off of the next chapter.

Fundamental for this whole routine is a reliable, good and noisy alarm clock (ideally synchronized together with the one in the workplace that probably was purchased at http://www.thelashop.com) to get your day off to an earlier start.

Caring for my parents

I hung out with one of my former co-workers at the beach last Friday. We used to work together at a nursing home before. It was so nice to see her. I kind of missed working at the nursing home. I had to quit working because I have to take care of my kid. Working in the nursing home was a fulfilling and rewarding job. It was fulfilling in the sense that I feel good about helping other people, most especially the helpless and needy ones. I love helping people.

 Anyhow, we talked about our work before and during our conversation, I thought of how times flies quickly and how short life is. We don’t stay young. As we become old, our life can turn out to be painful and annoying. We may not be able to move on our own and may suffer from different diseases and health problems. I notice these things about my parents. I know as they get older, they may not able to move on their own. That’s why I want to provide much needed love, care and attention to my parents.

Shower Commode Transport Chair

It is undeniable that as we get older, our efficiency in doing particular thing slows down. I hope my parents will still be able to use the bathroom or shower on their own someday, but in case, they couldn’t. Well, I will probably get them a Shower Commode Transport Chair. I’m sure I can find and shop online for this chair but heaven forbids (knock on wood). I pray and hope that they remain healthy and able. As much as possible, I want to lessen and minimize the pain and suffering that my parents may experience someday. I want to provide their needs and give them proper guidance as they get older. That’s how much I love my parents.


How to save money on your purchase

I love shopping online. Today, the number people shopping online is increasing. Online shopping is more convenient and easier than going to the mall or local stores. Time and location does not matter at all. You can shop anytime while staying at home.

I personally prefer shopping online because it saves me time and money. In other words, online shopping makes our life easier. You can find products, read product reviews and compare their prices on the spot. You can use coupon codes to get discount on your bill.

Coupon codes have become popular for consumers who want to save a huge amount of money on their purchase. So, before you buy something online, it is smart to look for discount coupons. The beauty of online shopping is you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. It offers 24/7 shopping convenience. All you have to do is make orders, pay the bill and wait until your purchase is delivered to your home. When you shop, don’t forget to visit Coupon Chief.

New Year 2013

Just updating this blog. Happy New Year! I haven’t updated this blog since the holiday started. I got very busy sending out some cards and gifts to my friends and relatives. So far, I had a great Christmas and New Year’s eve. We had a small family party at home. I can say that I really missed my family back in the Philippines and my husband’s family in Oregon. In 2011, we celebrated Christmas and new year’s in Oregon. It was fun. It was the best Christmas since I got here in the U.S. I love family gathering for that time of the year. Anyhow, I got some cool stuff on Christmas – PJs and sandals. I was very happy with my new Birkenstock sandals. They are way cooler and more comfortable than my old pair. Well, I needed to toss out and dump my old Birkenstock. They were worn out and not comfortable to wear anymore.  I wore the sandals around the house. I can’t wear ordinary slippers at home because of my bunions. I need a footwear, like Birkenstock, that will support my feet. Believe it or not, my old pair served me well for four years- I wore them every day. Well, I’m hoping this new pair will also last for years (because Birkenstock is the best). Thanks to my mom in-law for this gift.

A fun day

Yesterday was a fun day. We went to a pot luck Christmas party. What I brought was some vegetables pot stickers. I didn’t eat much, which was a smart decision. Usually, I’d eat a lot on parties and I ended  up getting so full. But yesterday, I did fine and was able to discipline myself. We didn’t stay long at the party (most probably, we were there for an hour) because my toddler was fussy and grumpy. He was sleepy. In the early evening, we went to the mall to get myself a pair of Birkenstock sandals. I was going to buy them online but I figured I can get them at the local store. I just remembered the store where I got my Kalso Earth shoes. So, we went there and got my sandals. I was really happy with my purchase because I got what I wanted. Thanks to my mom in-law who gave me the money (as advanced Christmas gift) for the sandals. It was really nice of her. I really appreciate her kindness and generosity.
