Room A203: Do you get enough zzz’s?

Hey there BCU Family!

Due to my laryngitis this week, we’ll skip the podcast and scheduled post and go with something on the lighter, but serious side of the house.

Many know we are supposed to get 7-8 hours of sleep, but most of us do not. Work, school, kids, chores, responsibilities–all have us up later and getting up earlier. Or, if you’re like me, you feel you do fine on the 5 hours of sleep. Right? Wrong. The infographic below (courtesy of DailyInfographic.com), talks about the long-term effects of burning the candle at both ends. Chronic sleeplessness can be linked to heart trouble, immune system diseases and certain cancers! YIKES!

So while an occasional late night may not hurt, we (myself included) want to ensure we start going to bed timely. And if we have trouble falling/staying asleep, prayer before you hit the sack along with reading God’s Word will have you knocked out in no time. Ask me how I know? (wink). Here’s a little something to get you started:

Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I [Jesus] will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30.

Room A203 Spotlight: Interview with NeKeShea Organic Blends founder, Ty Crable!

Hey there BCU Family!

Part of our mission here at BlenCouragesU.com is to ensure we are lifted up and encouraged HOLISTICALLY and that includes the natural part of our lives. Every so often, there is a service, product or item that I love, and feel the need to share it with all of you, hence today’s podcast post.

A few years ago, I “met” Ty Crable on YouTube as she was reviewing products she was trying at the time–and let me tell you, when Ty talked in the natural hair  community, [meaning there are no chemicals used to straighten your hair], MANY of us listened and BOUGHT! 🙂  There was something about her honesty, candor and humor that clicked with me and I’ve been a follower of her ever since.

Fast forward to now, and she is making her own ORGANIC body butters and hair care products! Yes, BCU Family, NeKeShea Organic Blends is a product line for you hair [natural and relaxed/permed, and skin that  is made with organic, high-quality, healing ingredients, blended together with LOVE. Can you tell I am a little amped about it? Wouldn’t you be?! 🙂

Before you click on the icon below to listen in, please know that this is NOT a sponsored or affiliated type interview at all! All NeKeShea products that I have tried and loved have been happily purchased by me (at posted Etsy shop prices) with the coins God blessed me to earn from my job.  This is just two friends chatting about a passion we share–and it would not be right to keep this awesomeness to ourselves!  Now that we’ve gotten that taken care of, please enjoy the interview and share your thoughts!

 

Yessss BCU family–can you tell the conversation was getting good to us? No worries, we’ll continue with part 2 of our talk, so please stay tuned! And yes, please visit Ty over on her Etsy shop.

In the meantime, there are additional podcasts for you to enjoy on the BlenCouragesU.com site that are available 24-7!  You can also see what we are up to on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! You can also listen in and subscribe to the podcast on Stitcher Radio , Google Play, and iTunes.
