How To Sleep Like a Baby Every Night

April 14, 2015 2 min read

After a long day at the office, commuting in traffic, working out, cooking dinner and walking the dog all you want is your bed! But what happens when you lay down and your mind starts going a hundred miles an hour? Frustration sets in. Here are some practical tips to have the best sleep ever…every night! sleepingBeauty-femmewise Avoid late night workouts- Hitting the gym winds the body up and get our cortisol pumping. If you have trouble sleeping, try moving your workout to the mornings, on your lunch break or directly after work so that you have enough time to wind down before bed. Limit caffeine after a certain time- If you are finding that you are having trouble sleeping, then its probably best if you make a new rule for yourself: No caffeinated foods or drinks such as chocolate, coffee, energy drinks and pre-workouts after 12 pm. Digital detox- We may not realize it but the blue light from our favourite gadgets screen is VERY stimulating and prevents the body from producing melatonin, the chemical responsible for putting us to bed. Here is another new rule to put in place: No cell phones or computers after 8 or 9 pm. A light snack-Eat a little more of what you had for dinner or choose something different but keep it light. The body needs to focus on sleep and not digesting a big meal. Aim for under 200 calories and no more than 1 hour before bed! Take a relaxing bath- Draw yourself a warm bath with ½ cup Epson Salt. Not only will this help you cleanse the body but it will lower your cortisol levels- the hormone responsible for keeping you up at night. Take a magnesium supplement- Magnesium is well known for helping to calm the body down and get a good nights rest. Go to bed early- Leave yourself more than enough time to get the rest that you need. Retire an hour early, wind down and get your 7-8 hours!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
