slumber and more slumber

as many of you know, i think sleep is the most *divine* thing out there - next to yoga, style, and do-gooding, that is. however, as of late i cannot get enough of it - even after 10 hours of it. i still want more. hmmm. maybe it is the change of weather. maybe the time change. are you experiencing the same thing? in case you are, i wanted to provide some suggestions for a decadent slumber:

- earplugs
- eyepillow
- furry 4-legged friend
- oodles of pillows
- soft, soft sheets
- pen/paper near beadside for middle of the night thoughts
- journal/pen to capture your early morning or before bed musings
- inspiring books (i'm surrounded by 'em and keep hoping that they will sink in through osmosis)
- bedside lamp for late night reading
- h2o (preferably with a slice of lemon)
- down blankets

additional touches:
- douse yourself in a sesame oil and let your skin soak up the benefits all night
- use a soothing alarm to wake up to vs. BEEP, BEEP, BEEP (boo!)
- pillow spray
- lip balm
- small fan for white noise and air movement

seriously, i feel like the princess and the pea but . . . slumbering is tres important! wishing you a joyful night of zzzzzzs. xoxo
