Staying Relaxed with Drift

It's hard in this day and age to fully switch off, I know I find it hard. It seems taking time for us to actually sit and relax and catch up on what we want to is a luxury now. It's funny how simple little things can help with this, but it's just something we seem to forget to do. I have collaborated with Drift to bring you my little things that help me relax.

The environment I am in really effects how I am, whether I'm trying to work or whether I'm trying to relax. I remember when I was studying for me GCSE's and A Levels I was always told to find an environment that suits my ability to concerntrate, and this is something I've always remembered and find to be so true. When I am wanting to work, whether that be editing or writing, where I am greatly effects how I work - very similarly to how where I am effects how I relax. 

I'm admittedly very British in that my idea of relaxing always has a cup of tea in the equation, and I am not apologising for it. For me, there is nothing better than being comfortable with a cup of tea for me to really start to relax. You may see the little rabbit behind me on my bed, that's the little Drift bunny. Drift very kindly sent me a mattress to try out, and I have to say it's a whole different feel when I go to sleep now. 

Reading is, and has been for as long as I can remember, my true way of switching off. That's why when I go on holiday for a week or so, I tend to go through two or three books while I'm out there. I struggle to switch my mind off even if I am relaxing. So being able to escape to another world for a bit and have something else to concerntrate on really helps me. Even if you don't think you're into reading, I urge you to try and find a book you enjoy. I can assure you there will be something out there for you. One of my all time favourites is 'Alice' and 'Tuesdays With Morrie'. 

We are such a technological generation, that when we get into bed we tend to sit on our phones for a good hour or so before we actually sleep. I've always struggled to get to sleep after I put my phone away and really try and relax and switch off. This mattress has honestly made such a difference to the way I fall asleep, and the sleep I end up having. It's the only mattress on the market with a 4,000 micro pocket spring mattress with a very natural sleep surface (and trust me, it makes sleeping feel absolutely effortless). 

I spend a lot of time on my bed in my down time, so having something so comfy for me to watch movies in bed, or write up my blog posts is really important to me. It's crazy really how much of a difference something as simply as the mattress you sleep on can effect your relaxation levels, but for me it really has. 

If you're tying to juggle something important to you with your own sanity, it's silly how often we forget to look after ourself so we can focus on what it is we are really wanting to do. I've learnt this rectently, relaxing when you have chance, and sleeping as best you can really make such a difference to not only how you feel, but your attitude.
