A lot of people have problems going to sleep nowadays. Even YouTube star Wengie admits that racing thoughts often keep her from enjoying a full night’s sleep. Thankfully, she’s discovered a few tips over the years to help her fall into dreamland with ease. In one of Wengie’s latest videos, she shares some of her most effective “sleep hacks.”
Wengie’s first tip is to put on some headphones and listen to a white noise track. White noise has been proven to both put the brain into a state of deep relaxation and block out distracting outside noises. If white noise doesn’t work for you, you could also try out binaural beats, raindrop sounds, ambient sounds, brown noise, and even pink noise.
If you’re into spiritual matters, you’ve probably heard about the “third eye.” Our “third eye” is located in the center of our forehead just above our two normal eyes. Wengie suggests applying gentle pressure to this point to induce a state of deep relaxation. She also says you could put a bit of jasmine oil onto this spot to relax even deeper.
Wengie’s next tip is to blink rapidly for at least one minute. Since you’re tiring out your eyelids, they will naturally want to stay closed once you’re done with this mini-eye exercise.
Another great tip Wengie shares in this video is to set your thermostat to 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists have proven that this is the ideal temperature for the human body to fall asleep in.
For those out there who like meditation, Wengie’s next life hack will be right up your alley. She suggests lying down and doing a “full body sweep” mediation. This basically means focusing on the tips of your toes and slowly working your way up to the crown of your head. You can tense and release each muscle as you pass by if you’re having trouble releasing any bodily tension.
Lastly, people who like warm drinks before bedtime should definitely consider drinking a cup of warm soy milk with a spoonful of honey. Wengie says this combination is ideal for inducing a naturally calm state of mind.
Everyone wants to capture the magic of a unicorn with the rainbow flowing mane, soft and silky, bouncy and free. Our wonderful Wengie is the epitome of the beauty and mystery of the mythical creature with her flawless skin and unique hair colors.
If you have ever colored your hair, however, you understand the damage the chemicals can do. It’s tough to maintain the luxurious majesty of the multi-colored follicles if your hair is weighed down by chemical damage. So what is a unicorn to do?
Lovely Wengie has several ways to capture that mystical glow without losing the health and sheen of your precious locks. Grab these tips and gallop away with them. These tips are paramount to a healthy head of hair even with colored treatments. Tips such as, try not wash your hair everyday. “Eww, did you just say NOT to wash your hair?” Yes, that happens to be Wengie’s top tip. Once a week is the goal, lest one watch the color and the money spent on it, glide down the drain. Pastel colors can fade after 3 washes, and if one washes daily, in 3 days you lose that unique color, which is disheartening considering these colors come at a cost.
“But, all the gross grease and oil in your hair! Won’t it appear dirty?” Wengie proclaims you can train your hair to last longer and produce less oil in one simple step. Wash your hair less. According to Wengie, shampoo can strip away the oils in your hair and if you wash too often, it can dry your scalp and cause it to panic and produce MORE oil. If you slow down the frequency of washes, your scalp will produce less oil which will cause it to appear less greasy.
Does that first week of no washing have you worried? Dry shampoo spray is exactly what you need to keep your scalp refreshed, clean, add volume to your crown, and extend the length of time between washes which will protect your color.
From the way you style your hair between washes, to the application of virgin coconut oil as a leave in conditioner especially in at the ends of your hair which tend to get more damaged, Wengie has a plethora of ways to be the unicorn you’ve always wanted to be without the damage that comes from rainbow treatments.
