How To Optimize Your Bedroom For Better Sleep

bedroom night time

A lot of us struggle to get enough sleep and having a busy schedule doesn’t help. Thankfully, changing your bedtime habits and bedroom décor can make a world of difference.

Keep reading to find out how to optimize your bedroom and get a better night’s rest.

Unplug from Your Personal & Business Life

Powering down your cell phone, closing your laptop, and turning off your TV will help you relax and put your mind at ease. Not paying attention to your work and personal technology will help your mind drift away when it’s time for bed.

Blue light emitted from electronic devices suppresses the release of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin, making it more difficult to sleep. It also delays and decreases REM sleep, which can make you feel tired the next day.

Set Up Your Bedroom

There are numerous factors to consider when trying to optimize your bedroom for sleep. Temperature plays an important role, and it’s actually easier to fall asleep in a room that’s on the cooler side. Much like blue light, a warm room can suppress the release of melatonin.

Adding plant life will help with air quality and breathing and can help create a tranquil space for you to doze off. You can also fill the room with scents you love to help you relax. Grab your favourite scent warmers or oil diffusers and place them on your nightstand or dresser.

Another more obvious tip is to make sure your room is dark. Now is the time to turn off your TV (or don’t have one in the bedroom at all) and get rid of all other electronic devices. Switch off all lights and close any blinds or drapes that could let natural light in to disrupt your sleep.

Unwanted sounds can also irritate you as you try to rest. For people in particularly noisy homes or areas, earplugs can be useful. Another great option is a sleep aid such as a sound machine or white noise device with a built-in alarm clock. These great inventions can help block out street noise, barking dogs, loud neighbours, and plenty of other sleep irritants.

Creating a relaxing sanctuary can help revive your body for another busy day. Follow our blog for more great tips!

The Benefits of Meditation for Better Sleep

bedroom sunrise

Attaining a truly restful night of sleep may be harder than you think. When we settle down and prepare for bedtime, our wandering minds can make it difficult to drift off. Luckily, there are practices like sleep meditation that can help you get the rest you need.

What Is Sleep Meditation?

Sleep meditation is the state between being awake and asleep. Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness like the “going-to-sleep” stage but is typically induced by a guided meditation. During yogic sleep, your body is completely relaxed, but you remain mentally aware.

The practice has been gaining popularity lately thanks to contributions from influential figures such as Deepak Chopra.

Techniques

Guided sleep meditations include many different techniques you can practice. Retracing your day is a great way to start your bedtime meditation. Review your day in detail in your head, focusing on each important event for 20-30 seconds.

Gratitude meditation is another useful technique to try. It focuses on expressing gratitude for the things in your life, whether they are personal or spiritual. Retracing your day can also help you think of things to be grateful for.

Counting can help slow your mind down and filter out negative thoughts. Silently count your breaths down to ten and then start over again. Repeat until you are relaxed.

Visualizations can help shift your mental state, similar to hypnosis. With this technique, you choose something or someone as an object of focus instead of your breath. When your mind wanders just come back to the mental image.

Apps to Use

To effectively practice sleep meditation, there are a variety of apps to assist you.

Headspace is a great app for beginners that offers bedtime stories in addition to guided meditation courses.

Sleep Cycle is another handy tool you can use to track sleeping patterns and it also includes plenty of other insightful statistics.

Last but not least is Reflectly, which features a journal that can be used to help you remember ideas for gratitude meditation.

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for us all. Prepare your mind and body and achieve restfulness with meditation and follow our blog for more great content!

How To Determine Your Sleep Chronotype

bed flat lay

Getting enough sleep is something a lot of us struggle with. Things can also become increasingly difficult when it affects your daytime schedule. One way to help better plan your day is to get familiar with your sleep chronotype.

How Do Chronotypes Work?

A sleep chronotype is a behavioural manifestation of a person’s sleep-wake cycle. It is the natural tendency for an individual to sleep at a particular time during a 24-hour period. A chronotype can help indicate a person’s most likely time to sleep during a day.

Your chronotype coincides with your biological clock in a variety of ways, including how you wake up and whether or not you require an alarm clock. Your eye sensitivity to light and production of melatonin (a hormone that regulates your sleep-wake cycle) are also highly relevant factors.

The Chronotypes

Sleep chronotypes are commonly broken down into four categories: bear, wolf, lion, and dolphin.

Most people fall under the bear chronotype, meaning their sleep-wake cycle corresponds with the sun. They wake easily, but also fall asleep without a problem and are normally most productive before noon. They are prone to decreased productivity following lunch around 2pm-4pm.

The wolf chronotype has trouble waking up in the morning and feels most energetic when getting out of bed around 12pm. They feel productive right away with their peak ending around four hours later. These types of people usually get another boost at 6pm enabling them to get more done when everyone else has stopped work for the day.

Lions are almost the inverse of wolves. They like to wake early in the morning and feel their best up until lunchtime. They’re also more likely to go to bed earlier, around 9pm-10pm.

Lastly, for those of us who have a difficult time setting any sort of routine sleep schedule, there is the dolphin chronotype. Unfortunately, dolphins often don’t get enough sleep because of their sensitivity to things like noise and light. Their peak productivity is between 10am-2pm.

For more details on how to plan the ideal sleep and daytime schedule read this article.

How To Determine Your Chronotype
dolphin

There are a variety of useful questionnaires that can help you determine your sleep chronotype.

The Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire by Swedish researcher Oslov Ostberg, the Munich Chronotype Questionnaire by Till Roenneberg, professor of chronobiology at the Institute of Medical Psychology at Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany, and The Power of When Quiz by clinical sleep psychologist Dr. Michael J. Breus are all great resources.

Dr. Breus has also written a book dedicated to sleep chronotypes titled The Power of When: Discover Your Chronotype – and the Best Time to Eat Lunch, Ask for a Raise, Have Sex, Write a Novel, Take Your Meds, and More, which is available on Amazon.

Sleeping is essential to make sure your body is prepared to tackle each day. Learn your chronotype and get your day started the right way.

The Interesting History of Jazz & Cannabis

spray painted jazz mural

Until recently, the powers that be have demonized cannabis and persecuted smokers. Not immune to the stigma, musicians of many genres have looked to the plant for inspiration. It’s been a recurring reference in lyrics since long before legalization, leading us to want to learn more about how two seemingly unrelated topics have been intertwined throughout history.

During the 1920s and early 1930s, alcoholic beverage consumption was illegal in the United States. It was then that speakeasies and underground clubs gained popularity. Aside from drinking, something else was happening in these spaces far more special and it was the music.

In the New Orleans red-light district of the time, it was typical to find crowds drinking, smoking joints, and partying through the night to the sounds of a live band. These bands played until the place was empty, sometimes for eight hours straight. Their music of choice was jazz.

Musicians in cities like Chicago and New York also consumed the substance and it wasn’t long before the genre started to become synonymous with smoking green. The emergence of jazz occurred during the same time cannabis came under scrutiny. In 1923
Iowa, Oregon, Washington, and Vermont placed bans on the substance. State after state made it an illegal drug and by 1933, twenty-nine states had criminalized cannabis.

One of the best-known critics of the time was Harry J. Anslinger, the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, who waged a war on cannabis with the help of propaganda film Reefer Madness. Artists were quite vocal in their opposition to his policies, such as Cab Calloway who expressed his love for weed on “Reefer Man.”

Chicago-born jazz clarinetist and saxophonist Mezz Mezzrow became the principal supplier of cannabis to Harlem in the 1930s. His autobiography, Really the Blues, included a long glossary of what cannabis was commonly called during that time including “grass,” “grefa,” “gunga,” “hay,” “hemp,” “muggles,” “muta,” “reefer,” “tea,” and the now popular “weed.” Mezzrow’s popularity grew and it wasn’t uncommon to hear the term “mezzrole” referring to a specific type of joint he rolled.

Legend Louis Armstrong, born and raised in New Orleans, made a name for himself playing at underground clubs. He said this about cannabis and the scene:

“We always looked at pot as a sort of medicine; a cheap drunk and with much better thoughts than one that’s full of liquor… We called ourselves ‘Vipers’, which could be anybody from all walks of life that smoked and respected ‘gage’; that was our cute little name for marijuana.”

In 1930 Armstrong was arrested for smoking cannabis outside the Cotton Club in Culver City, California with his drummer Vic Berton. He spent nine days in the Downtown Los Angeles City Jail and received a six-month suspended sentence. After the stint, he was back to performing and experienced a new camaraderie with fans and fellow Vipers who felt an affinity for the gage.

In 1954 his wife Lucille was also arrested for possession, this time of one cannabis cigarette and two half-smoked stubs. It was widely speculated that the stash belonged to Louis and the incident prompted him to write a lengthy letter to Joe Glaser, his manager, on the topic of cannabis. The letter outlined that he would require special permission to smoke his gage and if this wasn’t possible, he would halt performing music altogether. Eventually, Armstrong admitted he was forced to give it up, despite the perceived benefits.

These stories are just some of the many that show the correlations between jazz and cannabis consumption.

The music genre grew and became popular alongside the progression of cannabis regulation for many years. Musicians were impacted by the plant at a time when cannabis was still misunderstood. Some speculate this was due to cannabis usage that led to the imaginative and experimental music that captivated audiences and is still a hallmark of the jazz sound today.

The COVE™ Guide to Stargazing

milky way

Stargazing is a free and fulfilling hobby that constantly changes. It helps with inspiration and imagination and aids in the relief of stress.

It can be enjoyed by people of all ages in any part of the world and can strengthen your connection to nature.

With plenty of great celestial events coming up this summer, we’ve compiled the COVE™ Guide to Stargazing to help you take it all in.

Equipment Needed

Although it doesn’t cost anything to stare up into the night sky, there is plenty of equipment available to make your experience even more enjoyable.

The most common piece of gear that people think of when it comes to stargazing is a telescope. Thankfully this doesn’t have to be a large expense anymore, with a variety of tabletop telescopes starting well below $100. As you gain experience you may want to upgrade to a more advanced model, but it certainly isn’t a necessity.

Most telescopes also come with low and high-power eyepieces. Become familiar with both before experimenting with filters or Barlow lenses.

You can’t truly explore the stars without a finderscope, but many telescopes come with one already. If you’re looking to take things to the next level, try upgrading to a red dot finder designed exclusively for astronomy.

Cell phones are also highly useful when it comes to stargazing providing plenty of astronomy apps such as SkyPortal and SkyView.

A red flashlight can be used to preserve your night vision during your stargazing session while a bright white one will make cleaning up far more simple. If you have a computerized telescope, most external power supplies have these flashlights built-in.

A good pair of binoculars can give you another great perspective on the cosmos and provide some added entertainment when you’re not looking through the eyepiece of your telescope.

Once you’ve got everything you need for your stargazing experience, grab friends and family and head outside to the yard or a local park and get set up! Don’t forget to bring some snacks and other sources of entertainment such as music if you’ve planned a lengthy session.

Eclipses

Solar and lunar eclipses are frequently occurring astronomical events that most people are already familiar with. An eclipse is when the sun or moon is blocked from the viewpoint of an Earth observer.

The next lunar eclipse viewable in North America will occur at 11:07PM EST on July 4th and will last for almost three hours.

You can get a full list of upcoming eclipses here. Make sure not to look directly at a solar eclipse without proper protective eyewear.

Meteor Showers

A meteor shower is when Earth encounters many meteoroids at once causing glowing streaks in the sky.

To observe one you don’t need a telescope or binoculars, but you may require an alarm clock to wake you up in the middle of the night.

The June Boötids are a meteor shower occurring every year between June 22nd and July 2nd, with its usual peak happening on June 27th.

Enjoy this cosmic event without any fancy equipment this Summer.

Constellations
constellations

A constellation is an area on the celestial sphere that forms a perceived pattern such as an animal, mythological character, or inanimate object.

Their origins go all the way back to prehistory, but the 12 constellations in the zodiac such as Libra, Virgo, Capricorn, and Aquarius will surely sound familiar.

Many people also know of the Big Dipper, which isn’t actually its own constellation, but seven bright stars of Ursa Major.

There are other interesting patterns in the sky as well, such as asterisms. One of the easiest to spot during June in the Northern Hemisphere is the famous Summer Triangle consisting of the stars Deneb, Vega, and Altair.

Much like meteor showers, many constellations can be observed with the naked eye if you know where to look, but they might be better enjoyed using a telescope or binoculars.

Lunar Phases
lunar phases

As the moon orbits the earth there are eight distinct lunar phases in total. They’re ordered new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent.

The cycle repeats itself once per month (every 29.5 days) and you can keep track of the phases using a lunar calendar or calculator.

You don’t need a telescope to see the different phases of the moon, but a closer look never hurts.

The night sky is filled with all the wonders of the cosmos. Feast your eyes on some wonderful night time scenery with these upcoming events and if you capture any photos share your favourite shots with us on Instagram @covecrafted.

Declutter Your Life With Minimalism

Life seems to be getting busier and busier, so we’ve decided to help you manage your crammed schedule and cluttered mind by exploring the art of minimalism.

Although many people perceive minimalism as simply getting rid of personal belongings and creating restrictions in your lifestyle, it can actually be used to achieve freedom and help you reach your goals without dropping every single thing you own off at a thrift store.

Benefits of Minimalism

The benefits of minimalism are almost countless. It can drive improvement and simplicity across many aspects of your life, help with clarity of mind, reduce stress, and provide you with more free time, greater purpose, and self-confidence as well as some extra money and better relationships.

How to Get Started
folding clothes

There’s nothing wrong with owning material possessions but assigning proper value to the items you own and getting rid of things that aren’t needed can help declutter both your mind and home.

Determine what areas of your life could use more organization and begin by tossing away old or damaged belongings, listing things of value you no longer have a use for on eBay or declutter, and donating unwanted clothing.

If you’re feeling hesitant or need some additional inspiration, check out Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix for some great tips and advice.

You can also read this 101 Items To Get Rid Of Without Regret list, which will help you figure out the most painless possessions to get rid of.

30 Day Challenge
highlighter and notebook

Taking part in a 30 day challenge is a great way to spend a month building minimalist habits, turning what can seem like a huge burden into a temporary or permanent routine.

Find a friend or family member to participate in the challenge with you. On day one, get rid of your first item, on day two get rid of two items, remove three on day three, etc. until you reach 30 items on day 30.

Anything can go including collectables, decorations, kitchenware, electronics, furniture, bedding, clothes, towels, tools, and anything else you wish to part with.

Whether you donate the items, sell them, or throw them away, they must be out of your house each day by midnight.

Whoever keeps going the longest wins, or you both win if you make it to the end of 30 days. Following through all the way to the end will result in 465 things being decluttered.

Use the hashtag #MinsGame to find other people playing the game.

Maintaining Minimalism
living room

Maintaining minimalist habits is an ongoing battle, so make sure to keep the right mindset by remembering what drew you to minimalism in the first place. It’s a way of removing unnecessary things to make way for what’s truly important.

Appreciate your freshly organized space and continue to edit your possessions on a regular basis.

If you’re looking for daily encouragement, connect with the minimalism community for more great ideas! Sites like Zen Habits and Mindful are good places to start.

Minimalism isn’t about empty houses or rules. It’s about being able to focus on your values and what really matters to you. The ultimate goal is to spend less time on what doesn’t bring you joy or fulfillment and more time on the things that do.

5 Tips For Working From Home

work desk

Many people are currently adjusting their lifestyle to work from home for the first time, so we’ve decided to bring you our five best tips for staying productive when you can’t make it to the office.


1. Set up a home workstation

Using a home workstation is a great way to stay professional and efficient, even if you didn’t get dressed before you clocked in for the day.

Take advantage of a spare table or desk and create a separate space in your home specifically for work, which will help you psychologically differentiate your home life from your professional one.

Research has shown that combining workspace with personal space can cause employees to feel that they don’t have to work or deprive them of sleep or relaxation as they get too immersed in their job.

Creating a separate workspace can also help family members or roommates understand when you are available and when you need to tune out the world and focus on that day’s tasks.

2. Use Technology To Its Full Potential


Gather your computer, phone, pens, paper, a comfortable chair, and any other essential tools you may need for the day and make sure to take advantage of video and group chat software such as Skype and Slack to keep organized and up to date with the rest of your team.

Using Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides is another great way to collaborate from home.

If you’re working on a laptop, plug in an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard. They go a long way during extended periods of focused work.

3. Keep your daily routine


It can be easy to get out of your daily routine when working from home, which can negatively impact your results.

To stay sharp, do your best to keep the same habits you would on a normal workday. Wake up at the same time, take your lunch break, make those important calls, and emulate as many other aspects of a regular day as possible.

4. Stay Active

Being in a more relaxed atmosphere can make it harder to stay active. Use the extra time you saved from your commute to make a healthy breakfast, get in a quick workout, or try an early morning yoga session.

If you don’t know where to start, there are a variety of apps and Youtube channels dedicated to keeping you on the move.

Try MyFitnessPal and Pocket Yoga on your cellular device or check out videos from The Fitness Marshall and Blogilates.

5. Be Understanding

Let’s face it, working from home has its ups and downs. It’s easy to get frustrated when you miss a deadline or you can’t sit down for an important meeting.

Be sure to remain understanding as everyone does their best to navigate the uncertainties of being away from the office.

 

These tips along with a little bit of patience can go a long way in these unprecedented times. We hope you’re practicing social and physical distancing while staying safe.
