The toughest days in our home are those days when we have sick kids or even sick adults. It is no fun being sick and it is even harder when your kids are sick....
National Sleep Foundation’s Drowsy Driving Prevention Week and Pledge
Disclosure: I was compensated for this post on behalf of the Drowsy Driving Prevention Week campaign and the National Sleep Foundation. Opinions are 100% my own.
I am not someone who loves driving. It seems like every time I get behind the wheel, I get drowsy. This is especially true for long trips. My husband knows this about me and is always our designated driver for every family road trip. I am a good navigator and kid wrangler. We both have roles that work for us.
However there is the occasional trip that I just do have to drive for whatever reason. There are several things that I have to in order to be fully prepared. The most important thing that I need to do is get a good night's sleep the night before. That is a MUST if I want to drive for any length of time.
The National Sleep Foundation has several great tips that you can follow in order to get a better night's sleep. They advise that you should go to bed at the same time every night, avoid snacking 2-3 hours before bedtime and to have your room around 60-67 degrees.
This week is also the National Sleep Foundation's Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. In an effort to reduce the number of fatigue-related crashes and to save lives, the National Sleep Foundation is declaring Nov. 2-9, 2014 to be Drowsy Driving Prevention Week®. This annual campaign provides public education about the under-reported risks of driving while drowsy and countermeasures to improve safety on the road.
Direct your readers to take a Pledge Against Drowsy Driving, to share it with their friends, and to learn more about our Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. The post will include a blurb at the top from the National Sleep Foundation (with all links no follow and FTC-compliant disclosures). We have not yet finalized the landing page, but will send you a link to direct your readers to as soon as it’s finished.
