When was the last time you yawned? It’s hard to imagine getting through the day without at least one good yawn. Of course, if you see someone else yawning then you’ll be doing the same. This could be an indication that you need more sleep. Getting a good night’s rest is something that is vital for every person and yet it’s the one thing we all seem to occasionally struggle with. Are you doing everything you can to insure a good night’s sleep? One of the most important factors is to set a schedule both for drifting off and for waking up. You should be consistent and that includes the weekends. Sure you can stay up late on occasion but what you really want to do is train your body that when the clock hits a certain time you need to shut down.
Power naps are actually a good thing to help get re-energized but it’s important that you don’t drift off for hours in the middle of the day. Thirty minutes should be the max for an afternoon nap otherwise your sleep schedule will be thrown off. You should try to avoid the “after dinner drowsiness.” If you find yourself drifting off, try to get up and do something active until your real bedtime.
If you’re the kind of person who keeps the TV on to fall asleep you could actually be doing more harm than good. The light from the TV suppresses your body’s ability to make melatonin which is the hormone you need to fall to sleep. Instead of watching TV try listening to music or a podcast. The light factor also comes into play if you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Try a small nightlight or flashlight instead of blasting on the room lights.
A proper bedroom environment is also key to drifting off to sleep. This means making sure you’re sleeping on a the right mattress. It could be that after years of a lumpy mattress you really need a firm foundation to drift off. When you’re ready to buy a new mattress take the time to really try out the firmness. This means spending at least 10 minutes on the bed in the store. To get rid of that old mattress you need only call Junk King Chattanooga.

While they’re at it they can also remove any other junk taking up space around your home. You’ll really get a good night’s rest knowing you’ve got a junk free home.

The students returning to Central High in Hamilton County discovered something missing this year. In fact, this item has been missing since 1968. That would be the school’s planned second auditorium. Most of the schools in this Chattanooga district have a gym and an auditorium. One is for sports and the other for assemblies. Not so with Central High but it wasn’t for a lack of planning. Recently uncovered architectural drawings and floor plans show that a sprawling “multi-purpose auditorium, with classrooms, music rooms and storage areas was to be built at a later date.” That was forty-five years ago and they’re still waiting.
Editor in chief of the school’s online newspaper, Ray Walker is on the case. “It’s disappointing that we seem to always get overlooked,” Walker said. “You look at other high schools, even middle schools, and they have better facilities than we do. Central is a great old school with a lot of pride, but people seem to forget about us.” He is putting the pressure on Hamilton County to come through with the new building.
Thanks to Ray’s investigation there is one commissioner who is standing up for the students. Chester Bankston of District 9, whose children graduated from Central said, “I will support them all the way. This community deserves what everyone else already has. We really need to build a new Harrison Elementary, but maybe there’s a way to do this project in a way that will benefit Central.”
