But, before we start talking about all the awesome sleep-related gifts that you can purchase, let us talk more about the origins of this holiday.
It all started in 2008. Namely, once Kevin Lawver realized that he was awesome in his intern's eyes, he announced that on Twitter. After that, this particular day, March 10th, became known as the International Day of Awesomeness.
Moreover, this day was also chosen as it falls on Chuck Norris's birthday – who is, let us all agree, renowned for his awesomeness.
However, you don't have to be Chuck Norris to celebrate International Day of Awesomeness. You don't even have to be Kevin Lawver. To do awesome and amazing things, you can be anyone. So, use this day as an excuse to be awesome. Or, just use it to have the most awesome sleep of your life.
Speaking of having the most awesome sleep of your life – let us also tell you why that is important. Besides the usual – having a good sleep means having more focus, concentration, stamina, etc., it also means having better physical and mental health. Yes, sleep comes with many health benefits. Thus, let's mention a couple of them:
As you have seen, if you don't get a good quality sleep every night (or at least, most nights), you can significantly compromise your physical and mental health. So, work on your sleep hygiene. If you don't know how, well, start by enriching your sleeping environment with the following awesome sleep-related products.
Okay, from this article, you've learnt two things. One, you just have to do something awesome on this day, something in true Lawver style, or even something in true Chuck Norris style. And, second, you just have to work on your sleep hygiene. We can't tell you what awesome thing to do, but, we can tell you what awesome sleep-related gift to buy for someone you love (yes, that someone can be you as well!).
P.S. Of course, to have the best sleep, you should invest in high-quality sleeping products like a mattress, pillows, sheets, etc. But, you already know that. So, we are not going to mention those products, no. What we are going to mention is something you probably do not know about, something that can improve your sleep quality in the most awesome way.
If daylight is something that kills your sleep, you could really benefit from blackout curtains. These are designed to keep your master bedroom (or any other bedroom) quiet and dark. Moreover, if you live somewhere where it is generally hot, you could also benefit from these curtains as they, as the name suggests, block out the sun rays and thus, they make your room cooler to sleep in.
Besides the light, a thing that might be keeping you awake at night is probably noise. You might be living on a busy street with a lot of people and animals making a lot of noise, so, no wonder why you can't snooze. But, don't worry, you can easily fix that problem with a pair of sleep headphones. You can either use these to cancel the noise around you or to ‘mask' the noise with some type of music or white sounds.
Well, this one just goes without saying – good pyjamas most often equal good sleep. So, invest in some made of silk or organic cotton. Go all out – look for the best pyjamas on the market. Trust is, they will make your nights a lot better. And, as a bonus tip – try to sleep commando (aka. don't wear any panties or boxers under your pyjamas). This will help you achieve the ultimate sleep.
You don't have to be a celebrity to be awesome. So, don't let that be an excuse not to do something fun and crazy.
And, if fun and crazy are not your things, and if all you want to do on this day is rest and sleep, don't worry. That too can be awesome. Just make sure you know how to sleep – that is, make sure you have the right sleep products and gadgets and your sleep will be as awesome as you are.
