I can hear some of you who have children, or are not as lucky to get eight hours of sleep a night say: “I wish I had time to do that!” And to those people I say: Try the power of a power nap! Since I was young and in school I would take short power naps of 15-20 minutes. Right after I came out of school, and went to my room to do homework, I would take a bit of time and lounge on the couch and doze off. After that, I felt revived and went straight to work. I think it is in my genes to do that. But it is something you can learn.
To feel and look your best, your body needs to have enough time to rest. If you can’t make it those 8 hours (which happens to me quite often when I am working or flying somewhere) because you just don’t have the time, or your kids make it impossible, try a power nap. On the plane, in the car, whenever you can. I do them even at lunchtime at photo shoots. Anywhere you can find a few minutes to yourself, it really helps make you feel more energetic, and also help you to look like your most amazing “you.”
Also what I recommend is taking that time to really relax and even meditate, and process what happened during the day before falling asleep. I do that each night or before a nap, and I just lie there thinking. It ensures I have a peaceful night of sleep.
There is a lot you can do for your beauty that does not cost a thing, and one of them is taking time for your beauty sleep or a power nap. So, power to you!
P.S. I took the YouBeauty Sleep Quiz, and it made me look at my sleep rhythm. I do frequently wake up in the middle of the night because I have to go to the bathroom (because I drink a lot of water). And my sleep length might be a bit long. But overall I scored “Good Sleeper” (Score of 5). Not only that: This page had a ton of information about sleep that either I did not know, or was a nice reminder. Take the quiz yourself and find out how you sleep!
