Avoid the Grumpies

Without enough sleep (or enough food), I am a very unpleasant human being. In fact, I don’t even know if I qualify as a human at that point — surly, disheveled Muppet would be more accurate. So I go to pretty extreme lengths to get as much sleep as possible. Working at home is an enormous bonus on that front. But aside from that, I’ve accumulated a number of lovely things that help me feel like I’m sleeping in a fluffy cloud.

1. Incase Reflex Headphones  2. Martha Stewart Sleep Wise Gusset Foam Pillow  3. Ikea Rens Sheepskin  5. Aerie Softest Robe

Perhaps the greatest find of 2011 was these Beech sheets from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Lindsey found them, washed them, slept in them, and sent me a euphoric text: YOU MUST BUY THESE SHEETS!!! Since this is the woman who recommended Mario Badescu’s skincare line, which ended my fifteen year struggle with acne, I usually take these recommendations pretty seriously. The sheets are heavenly. I want five sets of them. I want clothes made out of them. They’re the shit.

Also, if you have trouble turning off your brain at night, you should definitely try hypnosis. The iTunes store sells an app by Hypnotransformations called “Sleep Soundly” that’s pretty amazing. The layers of sound come through in waves, so it’s important to have a good pair of headphones. Will you wake up with somewhat crazy hair? Probably. That’s what flat irons are for.

If you want to read something less fluffy than this post about the link between sleep and happiness, check out this article at Psychology Today by the Happiness Project’s Gretchen Rubin.
