  3. The Truth About Watching TV Before Bed

    Our culture of Google searching for advice often leads us to generic “one size fits all” responses. The question of whether one should watch TV before bed seems almost rhetorical at this point. Publications have sufficiently stressed the point that blue light from TVs, smartphones and laptops inhibits the release of melatonin, and therefore negatively impacts sleep.

  4. 4 Sustainable Gym Must Haves

    Getting to the gym is tough enough without having to worry about finding products that are not only good for the planet, but also healthier alternatives for you. Luckily, though, there is a thriving market for sustainable workout gear! Make your workout routine a little more sustainable with these 4 products.

     

    Eco-Friendly Water Bottle

    Skip the plastic water bottle and opt for a glass or stainless steel option. Not only will they keep your beverage cold longer, you are also not being exposed to the toxic chemicals found in the plastic. Opting for this eco-friendly option also helps you reduce your carbon footprint! Look for bottles marked with the following:

    • BPA-free
    • Non-toxic
    • Non-leaching, meaning does not release chemicals

     

    Organic Workout Clothing

    We make our Happsy mattress with certified organic materials and with minimal environmental impact. If you sleep and eat organic, why not wear organic? Try to find workout clothes made from these fabrics:

    • Organically farmed cotton
    • Hemp
    • Bamboo
    • Modal

    Here are some recommended clothing brands for your next sweat sesh:

     

    Organic Yoga Mat

    At Happsy, we love to incorporate yoga and meditation into our work out routines, especially before bed or right when we wake up. If we’re not stretching out right on our mattress, it’s important to choose a yoga mat made from organic materials.

    Here are some of our favorites:

     

    All- Natural Deodorant

    Nobody wants to be the person everyone at the gym is avoiding because their deodorant isn’t working. A common misconception of organic deodorant is that it is incapable of masking smells. There are actually quite a few options that work for keeping you fresh while at the gym. Look for a deodorant that has eco-friendly packaging, whether that’s recycled materials or biodegradable and does not contain the following ingredients:

    • aluminum
    • sulfates
    • parabens

     

    Recovery is also a key player in a good workout, so make sure you are resting your body on a certified organic mattress like Happsy!

  9. 9 Tips to Declutter Your Bedroom

    It all starts with that one pile of clothing you haven’t found time to put away. Slowly, the pile becomes two piles, gaining dirty laundry, towels, and unmatched socks along the way. Before you know it, your bedroom has become one big mess, causing you stress instead of relaxation.

    If you’ve ever felt the need to declutter your messy bedroom, it’s because clutter can actually have a profound effect on your mood. Researchers at UCLA found that untidy and disorganized spaces can make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and anxious. Yet, we don’t often think of our clutter as a main source of daily stress.

    Fortunately, clutter in your bedroom is actually one of the easiest stressors in life to fix! While living entirely clutter-free might seem like an impossible feat, here are 9 quick and painless ways to declutter your bedroom in 10 minutes or less:

     

    1. Make your bed.

    Chances are, your bed is probably swimming in a mess of clothes and things that need a proper home. Clearing off your bed and properly making it is the easiest way to immediately improve the tidiness of your bedroom.

     

    2. Get rid of those dishes and water bottles.

    If you have any used bowls, silverware, plates, glasses, or water bottles on your nightstand, take them back to the kitchen. While it can be fun to have a snack in bed while watching Netflix, the kitchen is where your dishes belong.

     

    3. Fill up your hamper with dirty clothes.

    In case you forgot the purpose of your hamper, it’s to store all of those worn clothes that are littered around the floor. Your room will feel infinitely cleaner (and bigger!) once your dirty clothes are tossed in the hamper.

     

    4. Put away your clean clothes in the proper place.

    Now that your dirty clothes are taken care of, you’ll want to turn your attention to your clothes that are, in fact, clean. It’ll feel great to refill your closet with clothes on actual hangers and to store folded pants and tees in your drawers.

     

    5. Go through those paper piles.

    We all have those piles of things we think we need to keep—but do you really need them? Sort through your stacks of concert tickets, old receipts, flyers, coupons, and bills. Recycle the ones you don’t need, and tack the ones you want to keep on a bulletin board.

     

    6. Empty your trash.

    After you’ve given your room a clean-sweep, empty your trash can so that you can continue your new habit of tossing what you don’t need.

     

    7. Sweep the surfaces.

    If your dressers, bureaus, and/or nightstands are overflowing with clutter, do a quick sweep of these areas until they look and feel organized. There shouldn’t be any random objects cluttering your surfaces, like earrings without a match or empty bottles of perfume. A good rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you haven’t used in the last week (or at least put it away!)

     

    8. Hang up your purses and bags.

    If you have a spare hook, hang up your purse(s), backpack, and gym bag. Freeing up your floor from the mess of bags will make your room look instantly more spacious.

     

    9. Find pairs for your shoes.

    Even if you don’t have room in your closet to store all of your shoes, you can make your room feel less cluttered by organizing them in pairs. After all, a row of paired shoes looks much cleaner than a mountain of mismatched ones!

     -- 

    Even if you haven’t managed to work your way through this entire list, choosing just one or two can help you to instantly make your room tidier and better organized. Before long, you won’t be worrying about the clutter stacking up in your bedroom—you’ll be celebrating your clean bedroom and kicking up your feet to relax.
