Good Nights Equal Good Sleep Hygiene

Article #3 – Broadcast #1 – Draft(I’m not really sure how to do this. So, this is just me…winging it~)

Sleep hygiene is where you practice the same routine every night and when you wake up. A good night’s sleep means having good sleep hygiene. You can get 12 hours of sleep, which is highly unrecommended, and still be tired. Simply because all that sleep will mean nothing without good sleep hygiene. The average amount someone should sleep is eight hours, but that sleep will mean nothing unless you put sleep hygiene with it.

A number of things fall under getting a good night’s sleep besides just sleep hygiene. The body only works off of one REM Cycle and does not carry over into other days. The REM Cycle is considered a full cycle of sleep for the body. Everyone gets to the REM Cycle at different points of sleep, some at six hours, others at eight, maybe even some at five.

It is not rare to hit the REM Cycle without proper sleep hygiene, but with sleep hygiene you’d reach the REM Cycle more often. Which basically means you get to sleep like a baby and wake up ready to take on the world.

Things to keep in mind when practicing sleep hygiene:

  • Avoid naps during the day
  • Don’t drink alcohol or coffee before bed
  • Don’t try to go to bed if you aren’t tired
  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time

Those are just a few of the main points when it comes to getting good sleep hygiene. No one has the same routine or way they get to bed, so just because something works for someone means that it will work for you. A good night’s sleep never came easy, but doesn’t mean that they are impossible to come by.

Announced! Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6

News Article!

The one thing I’ve learned about music articles is that there aren’t much to them.

Talking about the release of a new song, its talks about the last time the band released a song and then it goes into something else about the artist and a bit about what they’ve been up to and then it goes back to the song and when it will be released.

The article is always longer when its about having an interview with a band member about whatever. Sometimes the entire interview will be there and other times it won’t be.

When talking about releasing a new music video, its just like talking about a song. Albums on the other hand are a little bit different.

This article was about Fearless Records releasing another Punk Goes Pop album. Which is basically punk, rock, and metal bands come together and cover on the radio songs. In the article it talks about who is going to be on the album and following it is the track list.

Music articles are all the same, straight and to the point and i find that to be really nice. When it comes to music i like to read about some things when i’m in the mood for it. We’re all busy so, when the headline is about a new CD and i just want to know the generals about it, the article gives me that.

Something for me to work on: short and to the point.
