ALPINE, Utah, March 11, 2019 — Meet Jane. Well, Sleepy Jane to be exact. Haven’t heard of her? Not surprised, as you won’t catch her at the coffee shop or out late bar hopping. She’s the type of person who prefers to be well-rested, who is perpetually in search of the calm in life. She lives the idealistic life of a sleep seeker, optimizing her daily routine to make sure every decision supports that lifestyle.
Join us on a 24-hour adventure in the life of Sleepy Jane, who lives in a state of perpetual sleepiness day-in and day-out, because she values her rest above all else. Why is she letting the world in on her sleep-centric secrets? There’s really no better time than Sleep Awareness Week happening now through March 16. Sleepy Jane wants to show others how they might be able to infuse a bit more relaxation into their day, even if they understandably don’t live their life to the extreme as she does. There are a ton of ways to enjoy moments of calm all day long, even when you’re far from a nighttime slumber, and it’s up to you to see what works best.
Follow a day in the life of Sleepy Jane for a bit of sleep-spiration, where each aspect of her day is focused on rest, rest and more – you guessed it – rest:
7:00 a.m. Wakes up…kinda. She uses a sun light-mimicking alarm, which helps the mind awaken slowly and gently.
7:10 a.m. Ta-da! Gets up!
7:30 a.m. Drinks passionfruit tea for its ability to calm the mind. (Fun Fact: Our ancestors used it for its sedative effects.)
8:00 a.m. Eats cereal with milk as it helps produce the sleep aid serotonin, helping Sleepy Jane better regulate her sleep schedule so she can catch some Zzzs with ease.
9:00 a.m. Goes outside to help regulate her circadian rhythm and heads out for a 0.1-mile-long run (so she can say she went for a run, technically speaking), but turns on the tunes to enjoy soothing music that guides her steady speed, including “Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven, “Stardust” by Willie Nelson, “Kind of Blue” by Miles Davis and “Badzium” by Erykah Badu.
9:45 a.m. On her way back home, Jane passes through a botanical garden to enjoy the natural repeating patterns – such as those found in a field’s worth of flower petals – which have a uniquely calming effect.
10:15 a.m. Enjoys a post-exercise recovery snack of bananas that helps her muscles relax and better regulate sleep patterns.
1:00 p.m. Makes lunch comprised of a salad with chickpeas, another serotonin-producing power food to make sure her nighttime sleep is restful.
2:30 p.m. Takes a quick power nap, but making sure to limit it to 20 minutes to prevent from becoming groggy or throwing off her sleep cycle.
3:00 p.m. Practices mindfulness with yoga to help her control her thoughts and relax. Even takes a few minutes to stare out the window and get lost in the outdoors. This is also the reason she has many bird feeders in her backyard.
4:00 p.m. Inspired by all the chalk art on her neighbor’s driveway, she goes outside to blow bubbles, a child-like activity that actually is akin to a deep breathing exercise.
5:00 p.m. Conveniently walks through a nearby 10-acre field of lavender for the ultimate calming effect (or if raining, simply lights a lavender-scented candle).
6:30 p.m. Has breakfast. I mean, dinner. No, I meant breakfast for dinner (aka “brinner”). Foods such as bananas (filled with muscle-relaxing potassium), eggs (high in protein which is known to help aid sleep) and toast (a light source of carbs to regulate blood sugar) helps her get better sleep.
8:00 p.m. Dims all the house lights so her body isn’t tricked into thinking it’s still daytime, while her phone’s blue light turns off automatically in preparation for bedtime.
8:30 p.m. Turns the thermostat down to within the 60 – 68 degree range so she can slip into a faster sleep.
9:00 p.m. Takes a warm bath to raise her body temperature slightly before cooling down quickly, mimicking the natural drop in body temperature caused by the brain as it readies the body for sleep.
9:30 p.m. Pops a cup of cherry juice, a sleep-inducing concoction that helps her fall asleep, and stay asleep, for a good, peaceful rest.
9:45 p.m. Turns on the 8-hour album called “Sleep,” developed for listening while snoozing.
10:00 p.m. Slips under the sheets to get the recommended seven to nine hours of shut-eye and makes the most of it with a proper night’s sleep on her Purple bedding – which is soft where she wants it and stays firm where she needs it – no matter where or how she falls asleep.
Good night and sweet dreams, Sleepy Jane.
