Who is still feeling the effects of Daylight Saving Time?  I have been channeling my K. Bell 5 More Minutes sock all week!  Apparently I did not use the suggestions provided in our Waking up with Ease- Daylight Saving Time post.

Me wanting 5 more minutes of sleep sparked my curiosity of how everyone here at K. Bell would want to spend an extra 5 more minutes.

Here is top 10 list of activities that K. Bell employees would like “5 more minutes” on a daily basis.

 

1) 5 more minutes of morning coffee!

This was the winner! Whether you eat breakfast or not, almost everyone wanted a little more time in the morning to enjoy their morning cup of coffee or tea before rushing out the door.

2) 5 more minutes of sleep

This one proved that I wasn’t the only person struggling to wake up this week.

 

3) 5 more minutes before bed

If you are like me, I love sleep, but I hate having to have to go to sleep.  It would be nice to have 5 extra minutes to read a book before bedtime.

4) 5 more minutes of lunch

How do you spend your lunch time? Some of us like to go out for a nice lunch, some like to hit the gym or stretch their legs on a walk around our building.

 

5) 5 more minutes with kids

Spending precious time with your kids on a hectic and busy day.

6) 5 more minutes without kids

Opposite of number 5.  5 more minutes to relax and enjoy you time before the Kids wake up.

7) 5 more minutes of weekend fun

If we can’t have an extra day for the weekend, can we get an extra 5 minutes?

 

8) 5 more minutes of house being clean

I definitely feel this one.  How is it that only minutes go by before a clean house turns into a dirty house?

9) 5 more minutes of family time

Everyone is constantly busy that getting everyone in the same room is almost impossible. How you do spend quality family time?

10) 5 more minutes of getting ready.

Sometimes we all need a little extra time to look our best for the day.  An extra five minutes can prevent the “oops I only put mascara on one eye” day.

 

 

Where would you like to have 5 more minutes in your daily life?

Waking Up With Ease- Daylight Saving Time

 

 

Spring forward! Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, and that means we lose an hour of sleep!

Here are some ways to prepare you for the time change.

 

1) Wake up 10 minutes earlier everyday.

Starting today, set your alarm so that you are waking up 10 to 15 minutes earlier each day.  This gradually gets your biological clock prepared for the loss of an hour making a smoother transition.  For example, if you wake up at 7:00 AM, start waking up at 6:50 AM the next day, and then 6:40 AM the next and so on.

2) Exercise mid day on Saturday

Exercise promotes good sleep by the warming up and cooling down of the body.  Exercising in the middle of the day allows your body to have enough time to cool down into a sleepy state.

3) Wake up at your usual time on Sunday.

Whether you have or have not gotten enough sleep Saturday night, make sure you wake up at the usual time.  Sleeping in just makes adjusting harder.

5 Rainy Day Hacks

When most of the country gets snow during winter, we get rain in LA.

If you live in Los Angeles, you know that it has been raining nonstop this past month.

So us here at K. Bell socks wanted to share with you some of our favorite hacks for a rainy day.

 

1) Hair Bun Hack

Rain puts a damper on a good hair day. To avoid stress, frizz and flyaways, put your hair in a cute sock bun.

Check out this super fun How To Article by Birchbox on achieving the perfect bun with an old pair of socks.

 

2) Microfiber Towel Hack

Microfiber is extremely absorbent.  Keep it with you and gently tap dry your hair and clothing items that may need some loving.

 

3) Dental Floss Hack

For those extra windy rainy days, keep detail floss with you just in case your umbrella needs some reinforcement around the hinges.

Dental Floss is stronger than regular thread.

 

4) High Hemlines Hack

Here in LA, when it rains, it floods. If you don’t have rainboots, keeping your pants dry can be quite difficult.  Wearing high hemlines (such as a chic pair of culottes) will put your mind at ease.

 

5) Extra socks Hack

There is nothing worse than wet socks.  Keeping some extra socks with you on a rainy day will make sure your feet stay happy and dry.
