According to the National Sleep Foundation, good bedtime hygiene is essential to sleeping well at night and waking up feeling refreshed and productive in the morning. For instance, if we drink caffeinated beverages shortly before bedtime, or sleep in a room that’s too hot or too cold, our sleep quality may suffer, and we may spend the next day feeling groggy and unfocused. In some cases, we may struggle to fall asleep at all.
Moreover, Harvard Health Publishing says that sleep quality and mental health go hand in hand. If you’re deprived of sleep, your risk of developing depression, ADHD, generalized anxiety disorder, or another mental disorder may increase. As such, improving your sleep habits is key to boosting your mental health and improving the quality of sleep you get each night. For some budget-friendly tips that will help you to improve your sleep habits while boosting your mental health at the same time, read on!

Give Yourself the Gift of a Healthy Lifestyle: Tips for Busy People
Sometimes, when we resolve to make health and lifestyle improvements, we become obsessed with major investments of money and time when all we really need to do is gift ourselves with small, cost-conscious items and changes that keep us on the path to good health.

Most women can agree, they would rather have a toned body than a body that looks like it lives in the gym. Most women don’t want washboard abs, they want a toned midsection. Would you rather have curvy and full arms or would you rather have ripped and shredded arms? The former option is probably the one you’d sway more to. This is a natural desire for most women because being toned achieves what the classic female look is supposed to be. It’s feminine. It’s not bulky, it’s not ripped, it’s not disproportionate. In other words, it’s not a masculine shape and looks. If some women do want a more bodybuilder type of body, that’s fine too. To each their own. But if you’re one of the women that do want to have a slender, sleek and full-body shape, then being toned is something you need to achieve.
