Festival of Sleep Day
With all of the stress, headaches, restless nights, and hustle and bustle of the holiday season, there is no better time to celebrate the Festival of Sleep Day on January 3rd. Although it is difficult to pinpoint how this day originated, it is definitely a fun day to celebrate and enjoy. This is a day dedicated to rest and relaxation. It is the perfect time to say goodbye to your family and other commitments and say hello to your bed.
How will you celebrate Festival of Sleep Day? After the busy holiday season, it can be difficult for some to wind down and relax. Relaxing after a busy time is especially important if you suffer from sleep apnea complications. Here are some ideas to help you plan out your special day:
Take a Bath – There is nothing like a warm, soothing bath as a way to ease your body into a relaxing state. Add some essential oils or bath salts to create a spa-like experience.
Choose the Perfect Outfit – This is the perfect day to break out your coziest sweats, pajamas, and socks. Bundle up under a comfy blanket, and you will be set for relaxation!
Remove Clutter – Be sure to rid your planned area of relaxation of any mail, dirty clothes, or other clutter that can cause anxiety due to unfinished tasks.
Unplug – Hide your phone for the day. Unplug from social media and emails to fully relax and enjoy the experience.
Enjoy celebrating Festival of Sleep Day by making some special time to relax after the holidays and catch up on your sleep. If you’ve been having issues related to sleep apnea, please contact our office located in Silverdale, WA. We wish you very Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
