This past November Sam and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. SEVEN YEARS! Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe it’s been that long and sometimes it feels like an eternity that we’ve walked side by side. It’s so mushy but it’s true that I love him more today than I did when we exchanged vows on that perfect day 7 years ago. We often joke that we are officially that old married couple who’d rather “Netflix and chill” than go out on the town at night. But I’m honestly not at all ashamed of that. I love being home. One of the things I’ve been working on is trying to get to bed earlier. I have always been a night owl, for as long as I can remember. I’ve always felt my best creative ideas take form in the wee hours of the night, but with two kids and a busy schedule, that lifestyle leaves me running on far too little sleep. The older I get, the more I realize the importance of a good night’s sleep. I wish I would have caught on to this when I was younger but….c’est la vie. They definitely don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing! My 32 year old self is just now catching on. I usually like to “wind down” in some way with Sam after the kids go to bed at night. Either watch a show together or read a book or a magazine. Sometimes I like a warm cup of tea or cider before bed, I’m not sure why, there’s just something about it that’s relaxing to me. I try not to have any caffeine after 7pm because caffeine has always been something that affects my sleep. One new thing I am going to try going into this year is to going to sleep and getting up at the same time every day. I want to try to stick to a schedule (as much as I can anyway) to help set my body’s internal clock and optimize the quality of sleep I am getting. The sleep tracker feature on my Fossil Smartwatch helps me to stay on track with this goal. It let’s me know how many hours I am sleeping each night and has an alarm option that I can set to remind me when to go to bed and when to wake up. Combine that with it’s built in Fitness Tracker and I should be set up to feel my best ever this year J Wish me luck!
