4 Shut-Eye Strategies to Fight Insomnia

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Last month I talked about the battle of insomnia and how it is such a far reaching problem in this country. Matt suffers from insomnia, and I often do myself. We're not alone either, about 4 million Americans suffer from some level of insomnia! Lately, I have been looking into the problem more, and have run across some shut-eye strategies that can help battle insomnia and let you get a better night's rest.

School is back in session for most kids around the country, and that is no exception in our home. I started schooling the boys on Monday, and that is an instant 5 hours or so that I no longer have in my day. The name of the game right now when it comes to everything in my life is ease and functionality. I carry that motto into the kitchen, and am always looking for ways to make weeknight meals quick and easy. Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips have been a godsend, and help me throw together healthy and delicious meals in a flash.

Where to Stay with Kids in New York City #90DayRoadTrip #Travel

New York City is a living, breathing thing. It's so much more than a destination, and requires a great deal more planning to visit than any other place we have ever been to. Part of that planning for me, as a mom traveling with four boys, is where would be the best place to stay with kids in a city this big. You want to be close enough to major attractions, because let's face it, every time you hop on the subway with five people, it is going to cost you $15 each way. You want a great view so the kids can fall asleep each night watching the city, and you want room to move around so everyone is not at each other's throats. Luckily, we found the perfect mix of comfort, location and a room with a view at the Millenium Hilton in Lower Manhattan.

Kids all around the country are headed back to college this month, and its a scramble to get everything they need. I watch my friends struggling to get their kids off to college, and I don't envy them one bit. You go into stores, and it looks like a tornado hit the school and dorm supply aisles. Wallets and bank accounts take a hard hit this time of year too. Schick understands the struggle of getting kids ready for college, and want to help you stock up and save.
