Sleeping In Cycles: Feeling Refreshed

When we sleep, we do so in several different stages. First, we enter a light sleep. Then a deep sleep, and finally a dream-state. These stages often happen several times in a night, and run in cycles of roughly 90 minutes each. This may sound like it doesn’t matter, but sleep cycles can be used to your advantage.

Have you ever found yourself exhausted when waking up, despite a long nights sleep? You’re sure you dozed off at around ten o’clock, why are you still so tired? It’s likely you woke up in the middle of one of these cycles. When you interrupt a cycle, you often drag your brain out of a deep sleep or dream-state, and it can leave you feeling groggy and disoriented. It can have a serious affect on your concentration throughout the day, and will affect things like your attention span and your response times.

Chicken of the Month

 

So, its that time again where we choose another breed of chicken and crown it ‘Chicken of the month!’

This month see’s the Polish chicken or Poland winning the title.  This chicken can be identified, primarily, because of its beautiful crest of feathers which cover their entire head.  You can see this from the picture above of the Silver laced polish cock.  He has a very distinctive white feather with black edging and an impressive plumage of long thin feathers sprouting from the top of his head.

There is a fair amount of controversy in the chicken world as to where the origin of the name Polish chicken came from.  This breed could have been named after the country Poland which would be the first assumption one would make.  There are also theories that it comes from the Middle Dutch word Pol, meaning head, referring to this birds identifying headdress.

This breed has been identified as far back as the 1400’s where chickens of a strong resemblance can be seen in paintings from the era.  The derivation of the Polish chicken is unclear but theories suggest that they were brought to Eastern Europe by Asian Mongols during the medieval times or that immigrants could have brought them from Spain or Italy.

Wherever they came from I’m sure we can all agree that they extremely impressive and can appreciate why they are a firm favourite with chicken fanciers the world over.

No More Snoozing!

 

How many times have you found yourself breaking your personal record for pressing the snooze button before you get out of bed?  A common problem for most I’m sure and we know all too well how groggy we feel when we drift in and out of sleep for that extra half an hour in the mornings.  How many times have you promised yourself you’ll get straight out of bed when your alarm has gone off?

Just think about what you could do with that extra time in the morning.  Watch the sunrise, walk the dog, go for a run, read the paper or spend quality time with the family before you all head off to school or work.  A number of studies have shown that the snooze button does more harm than good and can often leave you feeling drowsy or less rested than you should after a nights sleep.
