Finals Week: 4 Reasons why you need Sleep + Aurorae Yoga Mat Giveaway

I have three yoga mats, two are Aurorae and I have to say that they are my absolute favorite, go to mats.  They are a lot thicker than the average yoga mat, and they have a more cushy feeling, which I prefer when I am relaxingly doing yoga.  They have good grips, so you don't have to worry about slipping and sliding when things get sweaty during downward dog!

Aurorae asked me to try out their newer mat, the Northern Lights.  It comes in gorgeous ombre patterns, and I received the gray ombre, which I will be giving away today!  

Sleep is hard in college.  Especially during finals.  There is so much to do, and not enough time to do it all.  I'm a huge promoter of sleep because it does all kinds of crazy things for us:

1) When we are sleeping we are learning, sleep locks in what we've been studying and keeps it for our long term memory.

2) Sleep fights sickness, why do you think our Professors don't get sick like we do?  They get enough sleep.  It's some crazy high number like 70% more likely to get sick if you get less than 8 hours of sleep a night!
3)  Without sleep you can die. Seriously. 

4)  Our body temperature naturally drops when it want's us to sleep!  The best temperature to keep rooms at during bed time is 65 degrees. 

My favorite way to get ready for sleep after studying all day (I always feel all antsy and hyper when it's time to go to sleep after studying all day, not active enough) is to do some yoga.  I like to turn on some ocean waves music and these and do some downward dog/child poses.  Here is a great post from Huffington Post on some of the best yoga poses to do before you go to sleep.

How many hours of sleep did you get last night?
