Getting a Good Night’s Sleep with Downy + Tuck In. Turn Off. Live Event in LA
We all hear about how getting a good night‘s sleep is so important for each of us. It not only affects our health, but also affects our emotions and how we handle tasks and challenges throughout the day. I must admit that I am not one who is very good at getting a good night‘s sleep.
It all started when I was in high school. I was working a part-time job at Arby’s (yep and I still love that place!). I would get home late, but still have homework to do. My parents had lights out at a certain time, but I would stay up with either my flashlight or by the nightlight (yes, I know, not the best) working on my assignments. It didn’t get any better when I started going to college. Unlike in high school, I didn’t have a designated bedtime in college. Then came my adult life, when I woke up at weird times of the night with my babies. I don’t believe I really did get a good night‘s sleep until they started sleeping through the night.
So what excuse do I have now? Well, I don’t really have an excuse, but I do still stay up until the wee hours of the night a lot of the time. I am either watching television or working on my computer and more often than not see midnight pass by. I seriously need some tips on how to “Tuck In. and Turn Off.” So when I was given the opportunity to serve as a Downy Ambassador for the “Tuck In. Turn Off.” campaign with Mom It Forward, I jumped at the opportunity!
On Friday, March 7th, I’ll be heading down to the Grove in Los Angeles. In LA, Downy will be presenting The Sweet Dreams Collection, hosted by Dr. Ian Smith (celebrity physician and wellness expert) and Jeanette Kaplun (lifestyle expert). The event will take place at The Grove (near Nordstrom) and will go from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. I am so excited to attend the event and learn simple tips that will help me to get the sleep I really need.
The Sweet Dreams Collection is asking people to pledge to a better night‘s rest…every night! With Daylight Saving Time approaching, and an extra hour of sunlight ahead, many of us may have an even harder time falling asleep. Technology, such as televisions and computers, make it hard for us to relax so we can fall asleep. The Pledge will ask us to “turn off” our technology at least 30 minutes before bedtime and “tuck in” to bedtime fabrics infused with the soothing scent and softness of the Sweet Dreams Collection to help us relax in order to fall asleep. Even if you can’t attend the live event, you can take the pledge online.
As part of this campaign, I also received the P&G Sweet Dreams Collection. I haven’t used all the products yet, but let me tell you, what I have used so far is awesome! Oh my gosh, the scents are literally heavenly. In my next post, I will be sharing with you my thoughts and experiences of the Sweet Dreams collection.
Will you be attending the Downy “Tuck In. Turn Off.” Event in Los Angeles on March 7th? Do you need help getting more sleep?
I am an Ambassador for Downy as part of a compensated Mom It Forward campaign.
