In the Mirror: Breathe Right Sleep In

By Charlotte on October 28, 2014 6:00 AM

I joined the Breathe Right Sleep In movement to try and catch up on my beauty sleep. Talk about a challenge!

Breathe Right Logo.jpgUnlike Bob who's out as soon as he turns over, I have issues. I prop up on two pillows because I fear nighttime allergies and, worse, snoring! I have trouble falling sleep. And when I finally get there, it doesn't last. I'm constantly waking up, worrying, praying and fighting to doze back off till the alarm rings. I know I'm just your typical post-menopausal woman but that doesn't make things any easier.

So when Bob and I visited Alabama last week, I tried getting an extra hour of sleep at night, using a free sample of Breathe Right nasal strips that we received for review to help me rest better.

How well we rest can have a huge impact on our ability to concentrate and handle our daily to-dos. Juggling home and work responsibilities can be a struggle when your sleep is spoiled by nighttime congestion.

That's why millions of people around the world use Breathe Right nasal strips to help them sleep better. Breathe Right strips open nasal passages so you can breathe through your nose.

What I Tested

I tried Breathe Right's new lavender-scented nasal strips.dddddd dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

What I like

Although they resemble Band-Aids, Breathe Right nasal strips are simple to put on, can be repositioned easily if needed and have just enough adhesive to stay put through the night. You don't have to fear pain from pulling them off in the a.m.

Since they're drug free, these nose lifters offer a natural way to fight nighttime allergies. That's especially great news if you're anything like me or my sister Pam. Besides preferring two pillows, I worry about getting addicted to nose drops or antihistamines; she has a phobia about swallowing any type of pill.

The new, lavender scent, which you activate by scratching the nasal strip's surface, is relaxing. One little strip is all you need for clearer nose breathing. And when you breathe better, you sleep better, feel better and might even look better. Bonus!

Breathe Right is inviting everyone to make a healthy commitment to disconnect for an extra hour of sleep beginning Nov. 1 - 2 as part of the Breathe Right Sleep In movement.

This #DaylightSavings, I pledge with Breathe Right to get epic sleep every night. Join me for the #BreatheRightSleepIn.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
