Something Other than the Ordinary

Has anyone wanted to sleep somewhere that isn’t your usual hotel room? I have! I find all these unique opportunities and I just have to take them. This weekend I am currently staying in a yurt and I get to cross it off my list. Yay me!!

Where would you like to stay that is out of the ordinary?

Below are my top 5 out of the ordinary places I would like to sleep for the night.

Well That Makes Sense

Do you ever read something and it just resonates with you. Such has been my life recently. Here are 5 things that I have read that seem to sum up my life at this moment.

A Good Night for Sleeping

I have been so transitory lately that I have messed up my sleeping habits to NO end. It seems I am going to bed by 10 but waking up by 2 every morning. My problem is–once I am up, I am up. Horribly frustrating!

So I have decided to share with you the things that do help me fall asleep (once I figure out how to fall back asleep after over thinking something, I will share).

  1. Temperature–you need to know what your optimal sleep temperature is and then adjust your sleeping space accordingly. That could mean turning on the AC/heat, opening a window, turning on a fan, wearing the right layer of clothing to be or even what sheets are on your bed. Here are some sheets that I like. 
  2. Noise/Lack Of–some people need and others don’t. I prefer silence from city noises but I don’t mind nature noise. I sleep peaceful with thunder, rain, crickets, you name it but I really can’t handle the sound of cars, trains or general traffic. Lately I have been into sleeping meditations that help my mind shut down. Here is a website you could try 
  3. Essential Oils–have you ever tried to sleep after a meal has been cooked in your house and it still smells like the food? Bacon might smell okay when being cooked but it makes a house reek by the end of the day. It is a lot nicer going to bed with a sleep that lulls you into sleep.  Take a look at The Prairie Homestead for some ideas. 
  4. Clothing–make sure you wear the right clothing to bed. Somethings are better for other activities and do not equate to a goodnight’s rest. I have been known in winter to sleep with socks on because it is too hard for my body to warm up and fall asleep. I make sure I wear socks that I can kick off without waking up then the next morning I fish them out of the bedding. Here are a suggestion for socks. 
  5. Hair Ties–this is for everyone with long hair like me. My hair is a big pain in the butt while sleeping because I can rollover and end up pulling it or having it around my neck or in my face. I can’t stand my hair everywhere so I tie it up on top of my head during the night and these ties work the best.
