Need a Wake Up Call for Better Sleep?

{Post in conjunction with Bedding Co}
How’s this for a wake up call?
More than half (63%) of Australian adults have actively taken steps to improve their sleep quality in the past twelve months, with Australian adults among the most likely to use prescription sleep drugs compared to the rest of the world. These are the latest findings in a recent online study, The Philips annual sleep survey conducted in February by Harris Poll on behalf of Philips.This survey compares the sleep habits of over 15,000 adults across 13 countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Poland, the UK, and the United States) and assesses how sleep is prioritised, addressed and perceived by populations around the globe.
Here are some recommendations to help you take control of your sleep health so hopefully, you can better enjoy your day without yawning every hour.
The findings prove that clearly, us Aussies are fair dinkum about our need for sleep.
Choose your sleep tools wisely by researching them!
Seek out a mattress that supports your body, but also one that remains cool and breathable. It’s really important that regardless of how tired you are, you take the time to research what’s on the market so you can find bedding that’s suited to you, your needs, and your budget. A great starting point is to check out bedding online first.

The Healthy Mummy: Busy Mums Guide to Weight Loss Book Review and Giveaway!

I discovered my love affair for The Healthy Mummy way back when I was pregnant with Miss C and it hasn't waivered since! I have followed the eating and exercise plans on and off over the years and many of my family favourite recipes are actually ones from my many, many Healthy Mummy books....

I have purchased so many of the cookbooks in the Healthy Mummy range over the years and have countless printed eBooks and recipes from their amazing websites. So when I saw that they had a new book out, I was pretty darn excited!

The latest book to the collection is called the Busy Mums Guide to Weight Loss. Not only does this include 100 of the most popular and fabulous recipes from the eating challenge, it also includes a 28 day eating and exercise plan. If you are not familiar with the Healthy Mummy programme, don't be fooled into thinking it is just another restrictive diet fad. Nope, this really is aimed at being a healthy sustainable lifestyle programme (and one that includes chocolate and treats!!).
