Wakey Wakey Eggs and Bac-y

Rise and shine! Take a big stretch and wipe the sleep out of those eyes! The week is mid-way through!

Reine the lovely Afghan hound certainly got her beauty sleep! But was it enough? If you’re having a tough time waking up today, like Reine, read on!

Here are some tips and tricks to get yourself awake and ready for the day:

  1. Drink a cool glass of water in the morning. The cool temperature will wake you up and the water will kickstart your metabolism making you wake up faster.
  2. Exercise in the morning! A brisk jog or bike ride in the morning air will waken your body and give you more energy for the following day as you improve your fitness.
  3. Don’t drink coffee everyday. You’re body will be accustomed to the effects of caffeine. Save the coffee for those days you really need it!
  4. Don’t Snooze! Snoozing the alarm clock can often make you more tired than if you wake up when your alarm first goes off.
  5. Get pumped! Find something to get excited about today to get you motivated to get moving.

Thanks to Diane Bauman for our sleeping beauty, Reine.

Bet you can’t read this post without yawning…

It’s that time of the week! Wacky Wednesday is here. This week we’re celebrating with the lovely Afghan hound Reine.

Seeing someone else yawn, it may be impossible to resist the urge to yawn yourself. Even reading about yawning can cause the impulse to be irresistible. Here are some fun facts about yawning:

  • Almost all creatures on the planet yawn, including snakes, fish, and dogs!
  • The purpose of yawning is to cool brain temperature and actually keep you awake.
  • Contagious yawning is an ancient ritual that evolve to help groups stay alert to detect any threats and danger.
  • Dogs yawn to stay calm in certain situations.

Hopefully this post makes you yawn, and helps you stay awake on this wacky Wednesday!

Thanks to Diane Bauman for the beautiful Reine starting this chain reaction!

Humidity

It’s official. ¬†Summer is pouring in around us with bright sunshine and heavy clouds of humidity.

Yes, there are the fabulous breezes that give you hope that the incredibly beautiful sunny day won’t kill you.

And yes, its officially time for shorts and tans which both reveal and hide our winters transparency!

And yes! We become more and more aware that our hairstyles probably won’t last until the end of the day…unless you happen to be an Afghan Hound, Reine, who looks gorgeous regardless of the time of year!
