Predicting the Top 10 Fall Box Office Movies

Now that the summer movie season has come to a close, it’s time to look ahead to see what the fall movies have to offer. While the fall movies don’t often put up as big of numbers as their summer counterparts, there are a number of potential blockbusters waiting in the wings, but for the first time in four years, there won’t be a Star Wars movie at the end of the year, which opens up the field considerably. The end of the year is shaping up to be quite competitive though, which could leave a number of high profile releases lost in the shuffle.

While there is only one wide release opening on Christmas Day (Focus Features’ On the Basis of Sex), there are five major releases on December 21 (Alita: Battle Angel, Aquaman, Bumblebee, Holmes & Watson, and Welcome to Marwen), plus Mary Poppins Returns on December 19. This is almost exactly identical to last year’s holiday release schedule which saw the release of five new films (Downsizing, Father Figures, Pitch Perfect 3, The Greatest Showman and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) in the days before Christmas. Jumanji ($ 404.5 million) was the only bona fide hit of the five, although The Greatest Showman ($ 174.3 million) and Pitch Perfect 3 ($ 104.9 million) also fared well.

Sleep the Single Most Important Determinant in Predicting Longevity

2015-06-25-1435224529-7585081-sleeping_woman.jpg

The most basic change we can make in redefining Third Metric success in our lives has to do with our relationship to sleep and the sleep environment.

Healthy Sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting longevity, more important than diet, exercise, or heredity.

William C. Dement, founder of the Sleep Research Center at Stanford University, the world’s first sleep laboratory, and part of the team which first identified the different stages of sleep.

Sleep an Important Aspect of our Health

Supporting a Better Sleep

At least a third of us don’t sleep well. Most people wake up tired and the tiredness lasts throughout the day. However, sleep is an essential physiological function; a key research concept is that of Till Roenneberg social jetlag — the difference between when our internal body clock wants us to get up in the morning versus when we are forced out of bed by our alarm clock.

Sleep underpins all aspects of our health; it is when our bodies are designed to recover from the stresses of the day before, and to prepare for the stresses of the day ahead. Poor sleep can lead to an increase in the chronic stress response and thus a reduction in the immune function and further consequences to almost every aspect of our health and wellbeing.

Rested sleep is not just about how many hours we sleep, but also about quality of sleep, and a significant part of the quality is about the sleep environment.

Sleep Environment

Modern advances in sleep research using infrared and magnetic technology have made possible the creation of the optimal sleep environment. The elements of the Kenko Naturest Sleep System are designed to work in harmony together to cocoon you in an advanced, adaptive, sleeping environment, to create the best chance of the highest quality of sleep, the feeling of sleeping in nature in our own homes, and to help achieve the level of sleep for your mind and body to function not just adequately, but with energy and vitality.

When choosing a bed, most people only really give thought to the apparent comfort of the mattress. However, in order to offer the highest quality sleep – and adequate rest and recovery – there are many considerations that need to be resolved in the sleep environment. These include: physical comfort, supportive thermal environment with moisture control, ventilation stimulation, hygiene and energetic environment all designed to support the highest quality sleep.

The Kenko Sleep System> optimizes each of these different factors for each individual, even if they share a bed with a partner who might have significantly different requirements at any one time.

Additional Sleep Tips From the Experts Consulted in Thrive

• Make your bedroom darker and keep it cool.
• Practice deep breathing before bed.
• Take a warm bath before bed.
• Exercise or at least walk every day.
• Banish all LCD screens (laptops, tablets, smartphones, TV) at night.
• Cut down on coffee after 2 pm and avoid alcohol right before bedtime to give the body time to metabolize it.

Creating Our Personal Sleep Revolution

Creating a healthier, happier life doesn’t need to be complicated. By simply incorporating the Kenko Naturest Sleep System into our bed and adding the sleep tips suggested we will begin to create a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.
