Here it is folks... rolling out over the coming days - 11 healthy sleep habits! . Sleep hygiene tip # uno: Get regular! ⏰ . . Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday, give or take 30 minutes. Even on weekends. Because let’s face it, we are creatures of habit. . Studies show that having a regular bedtime has numerous health benefits. Participants with irregular bedtimes (including sleeping in on weekends) had more adverse health conditions while those with regular bedtimes had a more efficient metabolism. Do you notice you actually feel worse after a much needed sleep in? . . Your sleep-wake cycle is dictated by your circadian rhythm which is the internal biological clock that regulates your body processes over a 24 hour cycle. Inconsistent bedtimes throws your circadian rhythm (and associated hormones) out of whack resulting in fatigue, low concentration, mood changes, and a reduced ability to handle stress and function during the day. . . Going to bed at the same time helps regulate your circadian rhythm. . Happy sleeping. N x
SOUND ON And tissues at the ready. This is one of the most beautiful things you’ll see at an art event.

“Your instagram is not your portfolio” - Another banger from @adamjk who I saw speak last week. Do you agree with him? Can Instagram be your portfolio and you don’t need a website for our business? ⠀ ⠀ 1 guess what my opinion on this is 😉⠀ ⠀ I’d love to know - do you ONLY use social media for your business and you don’t have a website? ⠀ ⠀ If you don’t have a website, why not? Is it a budget thing? Or you don’t know how to start? It’s too overwhelming? Or you just haven’t gotten around to it?
There’s been a very different style of painting going on behind the scenes this past week! . In just three weeks little Think BIG is moving to a new space and I am so very excited! . It’s just a small move down the road, but there’s been lots of work to do to get the space ready. And there’s still a way to go, but ready it will be! . Pop a note in your diary, Saturday 6 July is the date of the opening party 🎨🖌🧁🎉🎈 . The new home for little Think BIG is 2A Yaldwyn St East, Kyneton. If you see me there, through the wonderfully big window, madly painting walls and rearranging furniture over the next few weeks, give me a wave 👋❤️😊 . . . #littlethinkbig#kyneton
