How to Beat Insomnia with: Popcorn

We all know that you should never eat a big meal right before bedtime. Feeling too stuffed will make it difficult to fall asleep, and most likely keep us up at night. But a little healthy bedtime snack won’t hurt! Popcorn can be considered the king of all snack foods, it’s healthy and delicious! One cup of air popped popcorn is only 30 calories, what other snack can beat that?

Popcorn

But seriously, popcorn has some amazing benefits and can also help you sleep better.

Learn to Interpret Your Dreams

If you’ve ever woken up from a dream wondering what it all means, we have the decoding tactics you need to interpret your nighttime subconscious.

Interpret Your Dreams

Write it Down

Because remembering dreams clearly is easier when you get a restful sleep, we recommend keeping a notebook on your nightstand. When you wake up refreshed, you can jot down everything you remember happening in your dream.

Keep it Simple

It’s always best to analyze dreams on a basic level before delving deeper. Don’t add in parts that seem plausible, as dreams are everything except. Your dream will most likely be a compilation of unconnected words, imagery and symbols. And that’s okay! There’s actually a modicum of truth in that hazy story. Dreams are reflections of yourself and your daily life, so don’t try to account for pieces that aren’t there.

Go with Your Gut

For more abstract dreams, analyze your emotions and how you felt in the dream. Meaning isn’t always obvious the way we think it will be, like seeing an overwhelmingly obvious image. To find the truth and meaning in your dream, look at what it elicits and then apply it to anything relevant in your life it could link to. It’s definitely not easy at first, but if you make it a daily ritual, you’ll gain a better understanding of your own subconscious. Eventually, you’ll start to notice patterns and see certain symbols reappear. At first the images may seem irrelevant, but soon you’ll start to notice patterns and see certain symbols reappear.

Start Snoozing

The key thing to remember is that dreams are personal and it’s all about what you think and feel. So have fun and let your dreams be your guide…

Recycling Your Mattress

We’re recycling everything these days – bottles, cans, phones, computers, even clothes. But mattresses? In most cases, old mattresses are left out for trash and end up in already-overflowing landfills (which is not green).

Here are some frequent questions on recycling an old mattress:
1. Do people really do that?
2. Reduce and reuse are usually not far behind the word recycle, but reducing… that doesn’t seem to work with mattresses and reusing? Ew, no thank you.
3. What’s there to recycle?

Let’s start with 1. Yes, a lot of people recycle their mattress. It’s just not as common as glass bottles or batteries because we only buy a new mattress every 10+ years, and most people are more focused on the new mattress coming in… than the old one going out.

2. Mattresses are necessary to good health, as they provide us with the support and comfort of a great night’s rest, so reducing the amount of mattresses we buy or replace is out of the question for now. But reusing, yes, and in so many ways. If you are replacing your mattress because a bigger, better one is coming to town, bring the old one to a local charity, nursing home or donate it to a center. Many local mattress companies will offer to pick-up the old one when they are delivering your new one, but call to make sure.

3. Mattresses are designed to last, but a well-oiled recycling factory can reuse 90% of the mattress; the cotton and cloth can be turned into clothes, the springs can either be reused or melted down, the foam gets recycled and the wood gets turned into chips. Mattresses however contain some materials and chemicals that are not quite eco friendly: formaldehyde, polyurethane, petroleum based materials, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), and so on so attempting to break it down isn’t the smartest idea.

When considering recycling your mattress, you should contact your city or town first; they also might offer to pick it up and deliver it to your donation center.
