With back to school just around the corner I’m in full nesting mode preparing for the busy fall season.
One of the single most important things all kids (and grown-ups) need is good sleep. We are slowly rolling back bedtime to a more respectable hour from the current “party all night” time table we’ve been keeping.
Restful sleep though isn’t achieved just by ensuring your head is on the pillow by the time the clock strikes bedtime. You need to create a soothing bedtime routine and a sleep inducing oasis in the bedroom.
If I had my way there would be a fairy god mother who would ensure that every time I slipped beneath the sheets there would be fresh, crisp linens but that’s a pipe dream so now I try to keep at least 3-4 sets of sheets for each bed so that I do have the luxury of changing the sheets more frequently during the week if I have the time, energy and desire.
Fall has become the new spring cleaning for our family so it seems like the perfect time to spruce up the bedrooms and get ready for a year of fewer sleep deprived nights.
- Pick up a set of fresh sheets
- Brand new pillows
- A new reading lamp
- A fluffy duvet
- A cozy throw
- A Fitbit for the technologically inclined to monitor how well the new environment is working for your sleep patterns.
You can find all of these bedtime basics and more great items on Groupon Goods at amazingly discounted prices to transform the kids rooms (and yours) into a peaceful cocoon of rest.
