Pick A Time and Stick to It

You’ve probably already heard this Sleep Tip but if you want to get the most energy for your day this is a great way to do it. 

Pick a bedtime and a wake up time and stick to it, even on the weekends.

I know it is very tempting to stay up late on Friday and Saturday night and then wake up late the next morning.  But if you go to bed at the same time every night (remember we’re trying to get a full eight to nine hours of sleep) and also get up and out of bed and start your day at the same time every morning you will feel better.

Your body LOVES routines.  You may not believe it but why don’t you try this for three weeks straight – even through the weekends.  You will be amazed at how much energy you have when you stick to the same wake up and go to sleep time.  And that will be worth the sacrifice of going to bed early and waking up early.

Good job taking care of yourself!   Erika




Do something everyday that will help get you closer to accomplishing your goals. And the secret to accomplishing this that it probably won’t take you as long as you think.

I had started a project a little over a month ago.  It was a project that required a bit of construction building a stand for my camera so I could record art projects to show you.

I had it mostly done but it needed reinforcement on the bottom.  It took a trip to the hardware store and about fifteen minutes to put the brackets on the bottom that would make it stable enough to use.  Once I finished it and put it in my craft room it seemed silly that I left it undone in my garage for a month.  

It wasn’t that hard.  It was just a matter having the right parts and deciding to finish the project.  And now that it’s done I can’t wait to put it to good use and be able to show you how I create some drawings and watercolors.
