CAN’T SLEEP?

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

to create “dreamscapes” tailored to different points in your sleep cycle. It’s a well-thought-out product with a clinical trial under its belt. Head to Pzizz.com to learn more or download the app through the Apple App Store or Google Play for a seven-day free trial.

On Sunday, June 20, the sun will stay up in Alaska until almost midnight, longer than any other day of the year. That’s because June 20 is the summer solstice, the day when one of the Earth’s poles is tilted so drastically toward the sun that light hits our whole hemisphere for a few extra hours. It’s a beautiful phenomenon, but it can also be disruptive — particularly if you’re trying to sleep. Life has already thrown a lot of stressors at us over the last six months, so if the extra daylight is the icing on the cake of your insomnia, it might be time to turn to your smartphone for some high-tech help. These two innovative apps can help you get your eight hours in spite of Mother Nature’s curveballs.

CALM: HAVE A CELEBRITY READ YOU A BEDTIME STORY

If you’ve been feeling nostalgic for the bedtime stories of your childhood, then Calm is the app for you. This award-winning application was named the world’s happiest app by Timewell and has helped thousands of people de-stress since it came online in 2012. Though it’s perhaps best known for its meditations, the app also has a library of “Sleep Stories” for adults and kids alike, many read by famous voices like Matthew McConaughey, Stephen Fry, and Alan Sklar. Head to Calm.com to browse the library or download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

PZIZZ: WANDER SCIENTIFICALLY CRAFTED ‘DREAMSCAPES’

Step aside, white noise machines: Pzizz is here to take background noise to the next level. Instead of simply playing ocean sounds or chirping birds to help you doze off, this app relies on a branch of psychology called “psychoacoustics” for its custom sound blends. Its researchers combine ambient sounds with narration

Good luck, and sweet dreams!

4 DRIVING TIPS TO KEEP YOU AND OTHERS SAFE THIS SUMMER

BELLA’S TIP: DON’T LEAVE ME IN THE CAR!

Summer brings warmer weather and some different concerns for our day-to-day travel. Similarly to how you prepare your car for winter, there are some steps you can take to make sure your car is summer-ready and that you’re staying safe while traveling in your community.

Bella wanted us to mention that Kentucky summers can get hot, and a car is no place for your pets or humans. Never leave children or pets in the car, even if you just think you’ll be stopping for a minute.

BE A GENEROUS DRIVER.

Warmer weather also means more pedestrians and cyclists will be out. Be on the lookout when you’re driving. Be aware of pedestrians at intersections. Focus on driving, not on sending a text message. Put your phone on silent and in the back seat so you’re not tempted to use it. Some people may be newer to biking, so give them enough space. Use the same approach with cyclists in rain or other inclement weather. If you notice kids riding their bikes as you’re driving, use extra caution as well. We all want to get where we’re going safely, no matter how we choose to get there. By preparing your car and keeping fellow passengers and commuters in mind, we can all enjoy our time in transit.

PROTECT YOUR BATTERY.

According to AAA, hot summer weather can be even harder on your battery than freezing temperatures. To lessen the impact of heat, clean off any corrosion on and around your battery. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 cup of water and use an old toothbrush to scrub any corrosion away. If your battery is more than three years old, have a technician check it. Most auto and repair shops will do this for free.

CHECK YOUR COOLANT.

Between flushes, check your coolant level. If needed, you can top it off with a 50-50 mixture of water and coolant.

If you do find yourself in a collision or injured by a driver while biking or walking, our law firm can help. Give us a call for a free consultation of your case.
