How To Fall Asleep Fast

how to fall asleep fast

Sleep. If you’re not getting enough of it, we should be friends because neither am I. With a two year old and a newly minted one year old, this is a club I wish I didn’t belong to. Our kids sleep through the night, so once I’m asleep – I’m good to go. It’s falling asleep that’s the hard part.

avoid caffeine

There are several tricks that definitely help you fall asleep faster.  First and foremost, be mindful of what you drink and eat during the day. Avoiding caffeine after mid-afternoon is a must. Not only in soda, but medications as well.  Also, don’t eat a large meal before bedtime or go to bed hungry. Both can distract you from your overall goal – falling asleep. Another great tip is to clear your mind of all of the “to do’s” that keep your brain alert. I’ve found I need to distract myself and the best way to do this is to read. You also need to avoid electronic devices and the light they emit, so this means good-old-fashioned-ink-on-paper book reading.

Other pointers that are extremely helpful are:

  • Keep your room cool, 65° or below is ideal
  • Keep your feet and hands warm
  • Avoid exercise in the evening
  • Take a warm shower before bed
  • Scent of lavender (Essential oil in an atomizer on your nightstand is awesome!)

 Honestly, it takes a combination of things to help me fall asleep fast, but they are easy to implement. It helps to create a nightly routine because the consistency also makes a difference.

Feeling comfortable once you climb into bed is essential for falling asleep and overall sleep health! If it’s your mattress that’s keeping you from getting comfortable, a new mattress is in order. You can find exactly what you need at RC Willey. Shop mattresses now.

What Is Apple TV?

what is apple tv apps

Admit it. You have no idea what it is either. I’ve seen it advertised so many times and wondered why I or anyone else would need this. We have smart TVs, smart phones, smart tablets and smart children who can do things with my iPad that I can’t undo. Why would we need another device? I’m here to tell you – this is awesome and will revolutionize TV in our homes. We need this and I can’t wait to get one!

what is apple tv touch

Apple TV brings all of your favorite apps to one place. Streaming TV, games, movies, music, and more. Every app you can imagine: Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, AMC, iTunes, MLB, ABC, FOX, education, fitness - if there’s an app, it’s there or you can download it. Of course you have to subscribe to the apps service (if applicable) to get the content, but that’s a given.

what is apple tv voice 

That concept alone is pretty fantastic. However, the greatest thing of has Siri!! No more searching through all of the different services you subscribe to; Siri will search them and find what you’re looking for! New TV shows, dramas, 80’s comedies, the latest albums that dropped this week - just ask and you shall receive. This in and of itself is worth buying Apple TV. My husband and I spend 45 minutes scrolling through Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu only to decide we can’t find anything and forget it. With Apple TV, you tell Siri what you’d like to watch or listen to and she’ll do the work for you.

buy apple tv

Now, all you need is to buy your very own Apple TV from RC Willey! You pay the purchase price, get your Apple TV with a super cool swipe remote and you’re off to the races.


P.S. If you’re a gamer, Apple TV supports MFi-based controllers.

Living Room Paint Ideas Traditional 

Painting ANY room in your home is a big deal. It’s a serious production to even get to the point where you can put a roller to the wall. Before that, you have to make the hardest decision of all: choosing the paint color. Deciding on a living room paint color can be especially difficult. It’s the main living space of your home, usually adjoins other rooms and is the foundation that ties your overall design together. Don’t be nervous though. Color can make your space feel calm, inviting, and chic.

I love the 2016 color trends. They are colors I’ve always enjoyed and you can take them in so many different directions. It’s all about blues and grays, with many paint choices having subtle undertones that lend to both colors. These colors are great because there are so many options! From the soft and subtle to the dark and bold, you’re bound to find a color that you’ll be able to enjoy for years.

Statement Lighting

RC Willey Blogger Profile Picture - Andrea Posted by Andie on May 13, 2016


When we moved to the east coast last summer we were shocked when we arrived to our new apartment and found that there were literally NO LIGHTS in the family room and bedrooms.  This was our 6th move in 6 years of marriage, and no lights?  That was a first for us!  There were a few canned lights in the kitchen and bathrooms, and that was it.  The craziest part about it was that we were literally the very first to move into our apartment, which was in a brand new building. We couldn't even figure it was just one of the quirks you have to put up with in an old structure! 

It turns out you don't realize just how important good lighting is until you don't have any lighting!  (Isn't that how it is with most things in life?)  The place has amazing windows, and in the daytime it's flooded with loads and loads of natural light and sunshine, but at night you are basically sunk.  It only took us about 24 hours to get out and purchase a whole bunch of lamps to make the place more homey, and bright (quite literally). 

Lighting is one of those basic essentials in a home that can be overlooked.  While it's easy to find other things that seem more pertinent to allocate your funds towards, don't skimp on lighting! Statement lighting is one of the best ways to bring style, personality and character to your home.  

"Statement lighting- think glittering table lamps and bold ceiling fixtures- has always been a key component of great design, but the emphasis these days is on items that looks as good off as they do on."- Jessica Cumberbatch Anderson, Elle Decor

I'm really loving all the glamorous chandeliers and unique pendent lights I've been seeing lately.  They look beautiful even when the lights are turned off, and they create gorgeous light when they are on.  Get inspired from the photos below, and remember, just say no to boring lights!
