We love sleep! Getting a good nights sleep is good for your mind, body and soul. As parents, sleep becomes super important … and often cherished, as sleep deprivation is part of parenthood. Sleep is essential for health, learning, mood and growth for kids of all ages!
We are excited to share a feature from parachute blog about our founder, Jessica Iclisoy’s sleep habits! One of her tips that pops out in our modern age of technology is the use of screens before bedtime.
“I’m very good at turning off all electronics at a certain time and do not keep them on my bedside — they go into another room completely. I do not have a TV in my bedroom either. I designed my bedroom for comfort and sleep – not work. I love reading and look forward to hopping into bed with a book, magazine or newspaper. This slows me down and allows me to sink into bed for a good night’s sleep.”
If you have an iPhone, one of Jessica’s new favorite tools to use is Night Shift. Get inspired to get a good night’s sleep!
MAMA-BEAR ALERT: iPhone peeps utilize this great new feature on iOS 9.3 called Night Shift. It changes the bright blue light emitted from your devices to a calming yellow, which allows your body clock to naturally switch from day to night and start producing melatonin for sleep. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep, give this a try! To enable Night Shift/react-text – go to settings – display/ brightness – turn on ‘night mode’ – set your time.
