How Sleep Affects Your Health

Your body can’t keep going without time to rest and recharge. Sleep is necessary to help regulate hormones and body processes even the way your cells function. Without enough sleep, your physical and emotional health can suffer. Here are some ways to help you get a good night’s sleep:

Being short on sleep can make you:

  • More likely to catch an illness
  • Tired and stressed
  • Unable to focus and concentrate at work or school
  • More emotional or moody
  • Have trouble making decisions
  • Less able to get along with others
  • More likely to fall down or have some sort of accident
  • Have problems with coordination while driving, using tools, or working at the computer

Get the Right Amount of Sleep

On average, most adults need seven or eight hours of quality sleep each night, but there’s no hard and fast magic number that’s right for everybody. A little quality sleep is better for you than a long night of restless sleep. The amount of sleep that you need changes as you age and varies with hormonal changes, like during pregnancy.

You should wake up easily in the morning, feeling refreshed and ready to start the day, not bleary-eyed and stumbling out of bed. If you consistently get seven hours of sleep but still wake up feeling drowsy, you probably need a little more. Once you figure out what works for you, be consistent about getting that amount every night.

Set the Stage

If you’re always tired because you only allow yourself a few hours of sleep each night, you obviously need more rest. But what’s even more important is getting better sleep.

Here are tips to make your bedroom a more restful place:

  • Keep your room dark and quiet when you sleep.
  • Keep the temperature on the cool side at bedtime; people don’t sleep as well in rooms that are too hot. Find your best temperature somewhere between 54 and 75 degrees.
  • Treat yourself to a big, comfy bed with the right pillow to support your head and neck.
  • Make sure your sheets are clean, soft, and comfortable.
  • Save your bedroom for sleeping; keep your TV and computer elsewhere in your home.

Prep When You’re Awake

What you do during the day has a big impact on the quality of your sleep. Exercise is great early in the day to prepare you for a good night’s sleep; working out too close to bedtime can make it difficult for you to fall asleep. Drinking caffeine or alcohol, eating fattening foods, watching TV, working, and smoking shortly before bed can all make it hard to truly relax. So to get better sleep, start getting your body ready for bed hours before you actually turn in.

No Skimping Allowed

Don’t think of better sleep as a luxury to enjoy when you have time. You make time for meals, paying bills, and doing household chores because they must be done, right? The same should go for more sleep. Block off the needed hours every night just as you would for those other important responsibilities.

Getting good quality sleep does seem luxurious because it feels great to slip between those clean sheets, relax, and then feel completely refreshed in the morning. So don’t skimp on sleep, and look forward to this reward at the end of each long day.

I hope these tips help you to sleep better, as well as the many dreamy products at PulseTV.com! Rest easy, friends!

Looking for Masks and More?

masksmore

If you’re looking for masks and more, there’s a store for that…

TINLEY PARK, IL August 3, 2020 – PulseTV.com, a leading North American online retailer announced today the opening of its first brick and mortar store. The store will be branded under the name, Masks & More Outlet and will be well stocked with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to meet the growing needs created because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The store opened on August 1st. PulseTV co-founder, Tom Zegar said,

“It appears the Coronavirus will not be going away anytime soon and people need to find a reliable source of quality PPE. We’ve been selling our masks, sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and a whole host of other PPE products since early in the outbreak. We have it all in stock and thought that the local community would appreciate a dedicated store where they could simply walk in and buy what they need immediately. No need to wait for the delivery truck to show up. These days people need what they need when they need it. Masks & More Outlet fills that need.”

In addition to the PPE products, PulseTV will stock the store with other products from its warehouse geared towards people who are spending a lot of time at home with family. This includes games, crafts, cooking utensils, personal care items and more. Anisa Ali, also one of PulseTV’s three co-founders weighed in,

“We cut our teeth many years ago with retail back in the days of video rental stores, but this is our first brick and mortar experiment since going online in 1998. Our warehouse in Tinley Park is less than 4 miles from the location we selected and allows us to quickly resupply the store. It should also be noted that we are not creating product demand but merely responding to it. The pandemic has created the demand for many products that the conventional distribution system has had difficulty in satisfying.”

PulseTV began manufacturing hand sanitizer early in the pandemic and importing masks to satisfy their 6.5 million+ customer base already receiving daily deals by email. This also led to wholesaling PPE to nursing homes and independent retailers. The Mask & More Outlet is an experiment that if successful could lead to many more pop up stores opening before the end of this year. Zegar added,

“Every community has empty retail space these days. The pandemic has caused a retail apocalypse. We are hoping a Mask & More Outlet can serve local community needs in addition to being profitable.”

For more information, contact: Mary Kolacki, Communications Director M.Kolacki@PulseTV.com or call 708-478-4500 ext. 109. PulseTV.com is a North American online retailer that has been marketing exclusively online since 1998.

Road Trip Vacations: Tips and More

roadtrip

If you are like me and most people, traveling by air is not ideal during this pandemic. This does not mean you cannot take a vacation though. There is an old-school road trip way to travel our beautiful country. But we have lost the art of traveling by car to destinations.

Is it Safe to Travel Where I am Going?

Before anything else, check out just how widespread the Corona Virus is spreading on your stops and your final; destination. Check out the CDC website regarding hot spots and for general information. See here: CDC Consideration For Travelers. Of course, it is wise to practice social distancing and wear masks when you interact with people on the road trip.

This blog post will give you tips and pointers on what to pack and especially how to stay safe while traveling. Your car is like a mini-bubble for you and your family so let’s get right to the information. This is not theoretical as my wife and I drove from Chicago to Maine with stops in Niagara Falls and Vermont.

We had a fantastic time as the scenery was gorgeous and my wife brought along dozens of old CDs that we had not listened to in years. I did the driving while she played DJ. We both sang off-key in uncaring disharmony.

What to pack?

Obviously a lot depends on how far you plan to travel, but below is a brief list on what to pack. The further you drive, the more snacks and food you need to take, but there are always grocery stores along the way if you get off the Interstate and head into a local town. This is also a lot of fun.

Cooler with plenty of ice – A cooler is essential for packing water, ice tea, sandwiches, fruit, etc. Because of Covid-19, even if restaurants are open along the way, we do not recommend you patronize the establishments. So take plenty of food and liquids.

The Ultimate On-the-go Anti-bacterial 16pc Sanitizer Kit, which includes:

If you’ve been on the hunt for PPE Products then look no further than the On-the-go Anti-bacterial and Sanitizing Kit! This is the most affordable disinfectant kit on the market, that will protect you from harmful germs during this stressful time – on and off the road! (Plus, each of these items are available individually at PulseTV.com)

Blanket – When the Interstate system was created in the 1950s, rest stops became a thing because small towns were bypassed. There are many tremendous rest areas that you can have a picnic for lunch and dinner and enjoy the trees. Of course, rest areas all have bathrooms. This often creates an even more refreshing pause.

6ft Braided 3-in-1 Multi Charging Cord: Android and iPhone-ReadyYou do not want to be stranded without power to your phone. This USB charging cord has 3 different cable types at the end of it which include a micro USB, type-C and iPhone lightning cable. You can charge up to 3 devices at once including your iPad, smartphone, tablet and many other devices!

Towel – Always comes in handy at a rest area or in the car. If you have children with you, pack a few more!

Foldable Tortoise Shell Sunglasses with Travel Case or BLACK Wayfarer Style Glasses w/ CaseWhether you are driving or a passenger while traveling on the road, driving during a clear, hot summer day can fatigue your eyes and you need some UV protection.

Plastic utensils – Ever try eating potato salad or coleslaw with your fingers? I did this once and never again.

Sonorous Portable Wireless Bluetooth SpeakerWhen you make your stop at a rest area and are having a picnic, you will appreciate a portable speaker to enhance your entertainment. It delivers powerful HD sound at an affordable price. This high-end portable speaker will stream all of your favorite music and features an LED ring that dances along to the beat!

Napkins – This will save you wiping your hands on your shirt!

Farpoint 1500LM Rechargeable Flashlight and Power BankFrom searching for something around or under the car, to exploring some of the local plants, insects, and animals at a rest stop. Plus if you have car issues or a flat tire, a good flashlight can make a roadside repair go much smoother.

Plastic Bags – Nothing is worse than treating your car as a garbage dump while on a road trip. Have plenty of those plastic bags you get at your local grocery store and a couple of garbage bags for good measure. You will be glad you packed these.

10000mAh Power Bank with Digital LED DisplayA blown fuse, loose wire, or even a penny falling into the socket can render your car’s DC outlet useless. A good power bank not only greatly increase your safety on the road but you’ll also keep your passengers from fighting over the limited number of outlets in the car.

Umbrella – Chances are good that while you might take off when it is a sun-filled day, at least once or twice on this road trip you are going to get caught in the rain.

OK, so now you are packed and there is more to a successful trip than what you bring with you. A road trip is different than hopping on a plane and getting to your destination. A road trip has the added benefit of the journey itself can be joyful. It is critical to a successful trip to relax.

We live in a world filled with speed. A road trip is a way to slow down and enjoy the sites along the way. Do not be in such a hurry that you miss the grandeur of our great nation. Pay attention to signs that point out interesting diversions. Iy could be a museum. A historic site. A sprawling lake…or the world’s largest ball of twine (yes this does exist!).

Taking your time along the way allows you to distress. Get out of the car and stretch at rest areas. We took a Frisbee and after picnics at rest areas, we got some much-needed exercise throwing the disk. It’s always good to get the blood running through your legs.

My wife and I stopped at Lake George in NY and watched the boats and spoke with several locals. In Vermont, we took a tour of a working farm and bought cheese made right on the premises. Road trips are a tremendous opportunity to meet locals. You will find nearly all of them generous with advice on what to do and where to go.

In fact, meeting locals on a road trip is one of the great experiences you can have before you even get to your final destination.

Take Photos

Since 2007 when the iPhone came onto the market, cameras on phones have become better and better. Take plenty of photos because each one is a memory you will cherish for years to come.

When my wife and I got to Maine, we stayed at different Bed & Breakfast establishments. If we were younger, we would have camped out which is even a better strategy to combat Coronavirus. Staying outdoors is advisable whenever you can.

One thing I forgot to mention. There are so many names of towns that are unusual. Use Google to search for the origin of the towns. Finding the answer is like a history lesson and this adds some spice to the drive.

Remember…Stay Safe

I am going to end this blog post like it began; with a plea to practice safety first. Most of this time it means to wash your hands, apply plenty of hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing.

Now, hit the road Jack!

It’s Time to Best the Pests

nopests

Mosquitoes, stinging flies, ants, cockroaches, mice, moles, gophers, squirrels and raccoons; these and dozens of other pests can really ruin your summer. They may be important to the ecosystem, but when they invade your home, ruin your evenings on the patio and begin eating your vegetable garden you need to do something about them.

Take control of pests and get your summer back with a few safe and effective products from PulseTV.com.

You’ve worked hard to turn your backyard into your own personal retreat. So when it becomes home to squirrels, rabbits, raccoons and mice send them packing with the Owl Alert Ultrasonic Pest Repeller. To pests it looks like a real owl, but day or night, Owl Alert is on the job, targeting outdoor pests without chemicals or pesticides. THE SECRET is the combination of the motion activated sensor which emits ultrasonic sound that outdoor pests can hear, and the flashing red eyes that alert them. The motion sensor is activated when animals approach. But it won’t harm them or your pets!

Keeping pests out of your yard is important, but what about when they get INSIDE your house? That’s when you need the 3-Way Ultra Sonic Home Protector. No more disgusting traps or harmful chemicals. Ultrasonic waves emit in 5-second bursts to make your home totally unbearable for pests, but can’t be heard by humans! It’s super-effective! Unlike other ultrasonic pest devices, the Home Protector uses specific ultrasonic waves for different pests. Works on mice, roaches, flies, ticks and mosquitoes. And yes, it’s even safe for pets!

Probably the worst summertime pests are mosquitoes. No matter how many citronella candles you burn they will find you. And when they get inside the house you become an individual smorgasbord for your unwanted guests. So protect yourself without even thinking about it with a 2-in-1 LED Ninja ZapBulb. Part LED light bulb, part bug zapper, the 2-in-1 bulb can be used indoors and outdoors in any standard light fixture. 4 ultraviolet LEDs lure the pests and zap them with the high voltage grid once they get too close. This patent-pending bulb also utilizes Titanium Dioxide composite to produce CO2, which specifically lures mosquitoes. It’s a silent, chemical-free solution to mosquitoes and other flying pests, and there’s no cords or batteries to worry about.

Do you like to take walks at night? Hike? Go camping? Then arm yourself with a Rechargeable Flashlight with Bug Zapper. This super bright LED flashlight offers 1000 lumens to illuminate your surroundings, but it also features it’s very own built-in bug zapper that zaps flying insects instantly on contact. Constructed from military-grade aluminum alloy, the unibody casing is weatherproof and impact resistant to endure bangs, drops, and even corrosion, so you’re prepared for almost any condition. perfect for hikers, campers, or just relaxing in your backyard!

Ultrasonic pulses and ultraviolet LEDs are great, but sometimes the simplest solution is the best. Like good, old fashioned mosquito netting! If you want to open a door and let the fresh air in but keep the bugs out, install a Mag-Mesh Hands-Free Screen Door. Installs in minutes in any STANDARD doorframe, the middle seam of the screen netting is strategically lined with powerful magnet strips that allow the door to open and close seamlessly. These durable mesh curtains have an increased thread count than other cheap screens on the market and the magnetic design allows for easy walkthroughs when your hands are full. Even dogs and cats can come and go as they please. Makes a wonderful addition to any entry, patio, deck, tent, balcony, garage, and even sliding doors!

So don’t waste your summer fighting bugs turn your home and yard into a pest-free zone and start enjoying life!

 

Find the Best Garden Hoses

hose

There are many ways for us to keep our cool while beating the heat this summer. If you have a pool, you swim in it! If you have a sprinkler, you run through it! If you have water guns, then fire away!

At my house, during those hot summer months, the sprinkler is our go-to way to cool down. Getting the right sprinkler is certainly a good idea, but choosing a tough, dependable, and hassle-free hose is really the keys to staying super cool all summer long!

Best Garden Hoses

Selecting that much needed garden hose can make or break your summer. There are so many hoses to choose from that finding the one you want might be more difficult than initially anticipated. Whether you are looking to upgrade or replace a tattered, wore-out hose that has seen better days it important to know what features to keep in mind…

For my money, the best hose I have found is the Hose Hero! This metal garden hose blows your standard rubber hoses away! It is virtually indestructible, light weight, kink-free and it stays cool to the touch even
under the blister sun.

My old hose always split over time due to the harsh summer sun beating down on it. Now, that’s not a problem! The Hose Hero features a rubber inner hose that keeps it from leaking and a SmartSteel outer hose that holds up to anything the outdoors has to throw at it. Metal garden hoses stand up to the elements and won’t fade, crack and leak after prolonged exposure to the sun.

It can attach to spigots like any regular hose, and it’s super flexible so it can be spooled up in a breeze after a long day’s use. One hose is 25 ft. long, and depending on how much length you need you can easily connect it multiple hose as needed.

The big reason I has this particular hose in my yard is that it DOES NOT kink due to the construction and use of the aforementioned SmartSteel; both help to lengthen the life of this hose far longer than your garden variety rubber hoses. A kinked hose is a pet peeve of mine and whether I’m watering the flowers, setting up the sprinkler for the kids, or I’m about to start washing the car if I have to constantly battle the hose I am NOT a happy camper.

Handy Hose Helpers

Now, with a reliable hose at the ready, the next step is getting those important accessories that can help you use and store your hose properly and effectively.

Gilmour Pro Hose Nozzle

If you have a yard or a garden you know the work that goes into keeping your lawn thick and green and those flowers and vegetables healthy and blooming. Give your lawn and garden the love and care it needs during the warm months with the Gilmour Pro Hose Nozzle!

This Pro Hose Nozzle has a solid, heavy duty construction and has the three essential patterns you’ll need: Jet, shower and sweep. All you have to do is turn the rubberized head to cycle through them.

Just simply turn the rubberized nozzle head to switch between patterns. It also features a thumb-controlled water flow adjuster lever, making it easier on the hands. No more constantly squeezing a trigger!

This nozzle comes in a handsome red and silver metal finish and it will attach to virtually any hose.

Heavy Duty, Portable Hose Holder

A garden hose is essential for every garden or yard, but it definitely can be a nuisance if you don’t have a place to store your hose properly.

The solution is the Portable Hose Holder, which is made of heavy duty plastic that can hold up to 35 lbs. There is no tools or assembly needed for this either. It simply slips over the water spigot and is ready to use.

Keeping your hose neatly organized not only will have your yard looking more appealing, but it also extends the life of your hose. No more kinks or tangles!

Plus, you can even use this for more than just your hose. I have mounted two holders in my garage to store my extension cords. You can use this for anything that needs to be coiled for storage.

Gorilla Clutch Ties

Hang or carry almost anything with these Gorilla Clutch Ties! This set of 2 grip ties wrap around and bundle items together making it so much easier to life and carry them.

These clutch grip ties have a sturdy, ergonomic grip handle making it effortless to carry almost any item. It’s great for lugging around large cables, ropes, tools, hoses or bundles of groceries. These ties are reusable, waterproof and have four interlocking notches so you can adjust the size of the grip to fit any item.

But it’s not just for carrying around items, you can use it to hang up your belongings too! They were designed to withstand up to 50lbs. So you can easily strap this around a bike and hang it up on your garage wall… Trust me, I’ve done it! It definitely freed up space and helped organize my garage.

When summer is over these grips can really come in handy when you are putting your hose up out of the way so it stays in good shape for fun in the sun next year – all summer long!

Wash Away Those Water Worries

Whether you are watering your plants or you are having fun with the kids keeping cool during the summer months, getting the right tools for the job can make the work actually fun, and the fun even more so; after all, gardening is supposed to be a relaxing hobby, right?

These days, a stainless steel garden hose or the popular metal garden hose, seem to be where it’s at when updating or replacing your preexisting hose – and I could not agree more! Be sure to pick up these items, other must-have outdoor accessories and more great products at PulseTV Today!

Tea Tree Oil Benefits and Uses

teatreeoil

Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil that has been around for quite a while but not until the past decade, or so, has its healing benefits been catching on like wildfire. The oil is extracted from a plant native to Australia and cannot be found naturally occurring elsewhere. And for something that is found in such a specific area it’s amazing to learn that it can be used in an abundance of ways… both therapeutically and cosmetically!

It has often to be referred to as “medicine cabinet in a bottle” and I will be completely honest with you – Tea Tree oil truly works wonders! I’ve used it for toenail fungus and it took care of it in no time at all! It also comes in handy when you are bugged by insect bites, itchy dry skin, sunburn – even poison ivy! Trust me, the benefits far outweigh the less than pleasant smell, and luckily, the smell does go away. Now, without further ado, let’s check out its many remarkable benefits…

Tea Tree Oil Benefits

Acne… Applying Tea Tree oil directly to the blemishes and the surrounding areas twice daily will speed the healing. Applying it at night definitely works the best as one of the application times.

Minor burns… Wash the burn area right away with ICE water. Then apply Tea Tree Oil directly to the burned area. This will speed healing, prevent infection, and reduce scarring.

Insect Bites and Stings… When it comes to mosquito bites, Tea Tree Oil acts as an anti-inflammatory. Not only that, it also has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that helps to prevent infections from any scratching that may occur.

Apply the oil directly to the affected area. If the area is rather large, mix 5 drops of Tea Tree Oil with 5 drops of olive oil. This will immediately reduce the discomfort of stings and rashes that itch and cause discomfort.

Dandruff and Itchy Scalp… Add Tea Tree Oil to your shampoo. Just 3 drops per ounce of shampoo is the ratio you should use! To get the best results, leave it on for a few minutes then rinse; it will help break up product build up and excess hair oil. Plus, it leaves hair squeaky clean. For itchy scalps… Massage 5 drops of Tea Tree Oil to the scalp AFTER using the pre-mixed shampoo.

Repels Lice… Using the shampoo mixture will also help to repel lice. I suggest using this the first few weeks or months of school when the lice problem is at its worst. It will not kill lice, only repel them.

Nail Fungus and Infection… Apply the oil to the area that is affected and around cuticles. Massage the oil into the nails and cuticles. Do not rinse it off. If you have a stubborn case, soak the nails for 5 minutes with a 50-50 mix of tea tree oil and olive oil. And make sure to soak daily! This can be used on the feet also, which is nice!

Safe-T-Air

Do you have that one stinky room in the house? Maybe a basement that smells like mold? Or someone in the house who smokes? Safe T Air is the answer!

Just open the jar and let this essential oil clean house!  It’s nature’s most powerful antiseptic, anti-bacterial and deodorizer. Suspended in this thick gel, it slowly evaporates to gently circulate and clean indoor air. Your home’s circulation system carries it from room to room. Plus, you can use it all over the house!

Get Safe-T-Air and clean the air in your home the natural way. Go to PulseTV to learn more and order today!

More Tea Tree Oil Benefits

Minor Cuts and Abrasions… Wash the area and apply the oil. For abrasions, apply the oil directly to the area. This improves healing and reduces scarring, much like it does with minor burns, which I mentioned above.

Poison Ivy-Poison Oak-Poison Sumac… This makes me itch just thinking about it! Apply the Tea Tree Oil directly to the area. For large areas, mix equal parts of Tea Tree Oil and olive oil. This will stop the itching and start the healing process immediately. What a relief!

Sunburn… Don’t get burned this summer, but if you do… make sure you mix 5 drops of Tea Tree Oil with 5 drops of Vitamin E oil. You can pierce a vitamin E capsule or buy a bottle of vitamin E oil at any health food store or drug store. Once it’s mixed be sure to apply generously. Ouch!

Skin Care… Tea Tree Oil is known to penetrate the skin at a cellular level. Adding 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil to your favorite moisturizer or lotion will help smooth and rebuild skin cells.  It is also very effective on people with eczema and psoriasis when applied full strength to the areas.

Bath Soak… Treat you aching body with a soothing bath. Add 10-15 drops of Tea Tree Oil to your bath water. Soak for 20-30 minutes. What this does is soothe tired muscles and invigorates the whole body. That sounds nice, right?

Warts… Apply Tea Tree Oil 2-3 times a day directly on the wart daily until the wart disappears. The wart will dry up and go away. It may take weeks, so be prepared that this is not an overnight cure, but does work.

All-Purpose Cleaner… Just add a spray bottle with 1-2 tsp. of Tea Tree Oil and the rest of the bottle with water. This with help to spruce up many surface around the house.

Relieves Earaches… Simply mix 1 drop of Tea Tree Oil with 1 tsp. olive oil, drop mixture into the ear and then remove by tilting head and letting it drain out.
