Tuesday QuickTip #26 - May 26th, 2009

Get some sleep!!

In this busy world, it can be hard to tune out and get some zzzs at night. Since beauty rest is important, Brett shares his top tips for getting a good night's sleep.

Click below for the inside scoop!

EARS - Try earplugs! The complete silence is relaxing, but don't try this if you need to wake up to an alarm in the morning! Try to buy earplugs in a bright color so if you happen to lose one in the middle of the night, it will be easy to find.

EYES - Try an eye mask! It's important to block out light, and the slight pressure it puts on lids will calm the eyes. The habit of putting an eye mask on every night before bed really helps to put the body in sleep mode. Look for eye masks at Bath & Body Works; they sell really soft and inexpensive versions.

MIND - Forgetting the worries of the day and turning off your brain for bed is the hardest part. If you wake up in the middle of the night, try not to get anxious. Instead of worrying about sleep lost, try distracting your mind. Think of a favorite movie and try to recall each scene, beginning with the opening credits. Bet you won't get very far! Brett's fave for this trick is Grease 2!

Now go on and get your beauty rest!
