I’ve always been a night owl so that means I’m always up late and never seem to get enough sleep. Growing up, my mom always had to yell at me to go to bed early. Now, as an adult, I find myself frequently burning the midnight oil. Between work, tech devices and living in a non-stop city like New York, it’s hard to wind down, ‘turn off’ and just go to sleep! I still function well during the day, but I know that a full night’s sleep is important, nonetheless.
A few weeks ago, my friends at Downy invited me to join them at their “Tuck In. Turn Off.” event hosted by physician and wellness expert, Dr. Ian Smith, and lifestyle expert, Jeanette Kaplun. The event was held at Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal and featured Procter & Gamble‘s new Sweet Dreams Collection, including products from Tide, Downy and Bounce, designed to help you get a better night’s sleep.
Jeanette and Dr. Ian discussed the health benefits of getting a full night’s sleep, plus Dr. Ian gave tips on creating a good sleep environment: like washing your sheets, using lavender to relax, plus decorating your bedroom with soft colors.
The Sweet Dreams Collection is asking you to pledge to get a better night’s rest with their “Tuck In. Turn Off” campaign – “turning off” tech devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime, and “tucking in” to soft, soothing and scented fabrics washed and dried using their products. Great sleep can start in the laundry room!
