    MASTERING BEDROOM DECOR: Expert Tips From Decor Extraordinaire Lora Currie

    Posted by Nap Queen on June 22, 2018
    The tricky thing about bedroom decor is that we have the option to close the bedroom door while having company over if the room is not completed to our liking, prioritizing completing the rooms that guests see most over the ones that they don't. Maybe we begin with creating a warm and inviting living room, then a functional and fabulous dining room, then kitchen and bathroom etc. until we finally reach the master bedroom.
     
    "When you buy a house, most homeowners leave decorating the master bedroom to the end. I firmly believe it should be included in the list of firsts. Having a space to relax and retreat to, allows you to feel refreshed and ready to tackle the day," Lora explains.
     
    Lora, decor virtuoso and founder of Driftwood Decor, is a wife and Mum to three with an affection for coffee, music and people and a beautiful touch for decor. She is the rare kind of person you meet for the first time and you could swear you were old friends; absolutely the perfect person to help you make your house feel like a home. 
     
    And, we couldn't agree more with her take on bedroom decor. It's important to have a beautifully designed place of your own where you can relax, refresh and wake up feeling rejuvenated so you can not only take on your day but also the rest of your decor projects.

    HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT? What Your Sleep Position Is Doing For You

    Posted by Nap Queen on June 08, 2018

    On the surface, sleep seems so simple; even babies, who haven’t yet mastered walking or talking, quickly become experts on this activity. And, they can do it anywhere and anyway, whether it’s in the arms of a parent, in a stroller in the park, in a car seat or even on the floor of a playpen. Sleep is a fundamental function that we, as living creatures, need to do to survive and lead healthy lives.

    As we get older, the majority of us (less the very fortunate few who can still sleep anywhere and anyway, man do I envy them) have trouble sleeping anywhere but a bed, preferably, in most cases, our own bed. But, getting to sleep doesn’t simply stop at a location. We all also acquire a preferred sleeping position.

    There are many variations of three main positions: back, stomach and side. With each position comes pros and cons. Find out how your sleep position is impacting your life and optimize your sleep to better your overall health.

Maybe you drift off for a little while or maybe your frustration grows as you see the sun come up and peek through your curtains.

    8 SNORING SOLUTIONS: How To Stop Snoring

    Posted by Guest: Robert J. Hudson, SnoreNation.com on May 24, 2018

    Snoring occurs when air is restricted from moving freely through the nose and throat during sleep. The muscles in the back of the mouth and the upper airway of the throat, relax. The airway narrows or becomes temporarily blocked. As a result, surrounding tissues vibrate and produce the familiar snoring sound. For some individuals, the sound may be subtle, but in many cases, it can be loud and unpleasant, especially for a sleeping partner.

    2018 Update:  View the most effective snoring aids.

    About 45% of the population snores at some point or another. Anyone can snore: male or female, young or old; no matter what their physical characteristics. An overweight condition, smoking, or heavy alcohol consumption may all increase the risk of habitual snoring.

    But you may be a snorer based on your physiology. The way your throat, neck and head are structured can predispose you to snore.

    Occasionally, individuals who aren’t regular snorers will snore during a viral illness, after drinking alcohol, or when taking some medications.
