Love to sleep but have trouble dropping off? Wengie has 20 easy hacks to get you there.

Who doesn’t love to sleep? Most of us just can’t get enough of this wonderful state, and beauty blogger Wengie is no different. She proudly declares in her blogposts and videos that it’s one of her very favorite things to do.

 

But at the same time, she admits her sleep love affair, she also allows that she doesn’t always drift off as easily or quickly as she would like. To combat this frustrating problem, she has compiled 20 hacks that help her fall asleep fast, and she’s shared them in her recent video, How to Fall Asleep FAST! 20 Life Hacks for Sleep Everyone Should Know!!.

 

Several of her hacks are the hints and tips are the same ones we’ve all heard and read numerous times in other articles, blogposts and videos. It’s smart of her to repeat them here though, because while we’ve all heard them before, we’re likely to have nodded in agreement and then failed to implement them:

 

  • Use white noise
  • Use essential oils like jasmine
  • Lower bedroom temperature to 65°F/18°C
  • Relax your body one muscle group at a time
  • Take a hot bath or shower before bed
  • No electronics 30 minutes before bed
  • Your bed is only for sleep and…..well, you know
  • Stroke your pet
  • Massage and aromatherapy
  • Prepare for bed at a specified time

 

Several of the suggestions Wengie shares are less common, but very interesting and may even sound downright strange. When you’re struggling to fall asleep, trying one or two of them may be worth a shot. After all, you never know what might be the trick that works for you.

 

Watch Wengie’s YouTube video for the details, but in the meantime, you may be enticed by these hints:

 

  • Honey
  • Third eye
  • Tart cherries
  • Blink fast
  • Oatmeal
  • Legs up the wall
  • Lie still
  • In four, hold seven, out eight
  • and more…

Another of Mr. Halpern’s more recent accomplishments is the Aloft South Beach in Miami. He put his passion for history and talent for combining the old with the new to good use with this interesting old building that began its existence as the historic “Motel Ankara” in 1954. Also known as the Banana Bungalow in 2004, and since its recent sale to Rockpoint Group, a real estate company based in Boston it is now known as “The Gates.” It should be noted the Aloft recently received an award for Hotel Development of the year at the American Lodging Investment Summit.

Nathaniel Ru Continues to Act as Co-CEO as Sweetgreens Expands

For students at Georgetown University, and other colleges in Washington DC, the chain of restaurants called Sweetgreens is a staple and common eating and gathering space. While the restaurant to the naked eye may seem like a clever place to get a healthy and casual lunch option, it has quickly grown to become one of the fastest growing chains in the country. The restaurant is even more special to those that are in the Washington DC area because three recent graduates of Georgetown founded it.

 

In 2007 three students at Georgetown were sitting around discussing the fact that they did not have any healthy and off-campus lunch options available to them. Using their creative minds and educational experiences, the three young men quickly started discussions to eventually open up their own restaurant and bring their concept to fruition.

 

While the three students were finishing up their education, they constantly met to further discuss their ideas. In this time, they were able to come up with a very realistic budget and business plan. Shortly after graduating, the three men started their first Sweetgreens location on M Street in downtown Georgetown. The men were able to raise the capital needed through personal savings, investments by friends and family members, and other capital raising efforts.

 

For the first couple of years, the three focused solely on the Georgetown location. However, the reputation for quality product and friendly service quickly spread via word of mouth and the three men found the opportunity to expand quickly while maintaining a profit. By the end of 2016, which was just six years after they opened their first location, the Sweetgreens brand has grown to over 40 locations throughout the United States. While the company used to focus on the northeast United States, it has recently opened locations in California and Chicago. In total, the company employs over 1,700 employees.

 

Ever since the company was founded, all three of the founders have shared the title of Co-CEO. However, they have quickly found the ability to share duties based on each individual’s skill set. Of the three, Nathaniel Ru has acted as the focal point for the company. He has spent the most amount of time dealing with the media, investors, and other third-party communicators.

Securus Technologies exposes Global Tel-Link

Securus decide that they are going to release statements findings, reports that is going to highlight their competitive company Global Tel Link and their multiple wrongdoings. In a bid to get ahead of criticism, Securus CEO Richard Smith released in a statement showing that GTL past press statements are not only hurt the completion but undermine the integrity within the communication industry.

 

Securus itself is a company that has prided itself for a high reputation. They have had a good reputation according to BBB. The reputation is based on customer experience. GTL on the other hand has had reports that show its misconducts. Misconducts performed by the company date as early as 1998. The first to be released was by the Louisiana Public Service. It had an aim to highlight GTL service in the correction facilities.

 

Quite recently Securus made a press release. It announced that the Patent Trial had been validated. GTL had earlier issued a press release indicating that the Patent Trial was invalidated. The finding and facts by Securus Technologies show that information presented by GTL is misleading and highly inaccurate. The purpose of the press release was to provide clarifications concerning information presented by GTL.

 

In the news, Securus Technologies CEO stated that it is not new for GTL to undermine the nature of Appeal Board ruling and of the Patent Trial. GTL has always been at the forefront to try and use trivial unexpected short term wins. Securus itself has enough technology and software development. Most of the claims against Securus poor technology and software development are groundless. Securus Technologies actually beats GTL in all these areas. The company has a better technology, better software and more patents than GTL. This is why GTL became silent after they were challenged on a technology face-off. Securus would definitely beat them immeasurably.

 

 

The Establishment Of JustFab And Contribution Of Don Ressler

With a clear history of success in business, Don Ressler may appear as a perfect investor whose decisions bore positive fruits all the time.

After a short period, the company started experiencing growth and it is at this point that he knew he needed to move fast to establish his next business. As a result, Don Ressler sold it to raise capital.

Partnership and formation of Alena
When Don Ressler met Adam Goldenberg, he realized they shared a lot in terms of vision and passion. They, therefore, decided to merge their efforts to come up with an idea that would transform the way people do business and this led to the inception of Alena Media. The company partnered with several businesses and would offer them support in marketing on Forbes. Three years after establishment, Alena Media was already making profits, something that inspired the duo to sell the company to pursue bigger ideas.

The experience they carried along coupled with capital led the two entrepreneurs to launch Intelligent Beauty, a company that has been offering beauty and weight-loss products in different categories. Intelligent Beauty has gradually expanded and they are in the process of drafting measures to expand to other markets.
