Models Direct tips to getting a good nights sleep

A good night’s sleep isn’t only good for our model looks, it’s also essential to staying healthy – but what can you do to avoid tossing and turning?

When we’re not walking up and down the catwalk or posing for photographs, the chances are we are sleeping. Considering we spend about 21 years of our life sleeping, burning the candle at both ends sounds an exciting alternative if there aren’t enough hours in the day, but a word of warning – sleep’s not only good for our looks, it’s also positively essential for our physical and mental health all of which are essential if you wish to succeed at modelling.

So what should you do if you’re going through a period of bad sleep? Well before rushing off to the doctor for sleeping pills, check out the Models Direct tips to getting a good night sleep.

  • Avoid the Supermodel diet of coffee, alcohol or nicotine, especially for three hours before turning in.
  • DO follow granny’s advice and have a warm milky drink. Granny must have known that dairy products contain tryptophan – a natural sleep inducer.
  • Exercise is good to help maintain that model body but exercise strenuously late at night giving you that buzz will keep you awake.
  • DO try some simple relaxation exercises – Lie on the floor or the bed and slowly work through your limbs and body, from your feet up to the top of your scalp, by stretching or clenching the muscles then relaxing them.
  • DON’T allow yourself to nod off during the evening.
  • Jump in the models favourite place, a hot bath, before you go to bed. As your body temperature drops afterwards, so you’ll begin to feel sleepier.

TRY TO:

  • Make your bedroom a room you want to relax in – pale walls and bed linen – blue is a good colour for relaxation.
  • Make the room as dark as possible when the curtains are drawn and the lights switched off.
  • Don’t eat a heavy meal three to four hours before going to bed.
  • Do have a light carbohydrate snack – try a banana and a piece of toast – banana being another food rich in tryptophan.

Sweet dreams from us all at Models Direct . . .

Catalogue Modelling with Models Direct

Catalogues such as The Next Directory, Freemans, Kays and Look Again use many models from new born babies, children, teens, male and female models selling everyday products to consumers. Models Direct represent catalogue models and have provided models to well known clothing companies for many years.

Catalogue modelling can provide regular work because of the change in seasons each year which launches new clothing and trends. Pay is usually generous within this sector because of the vast number of images that are taken to display the ranges of clothes stocked by the company. These pictures are displayed in both print and online catalogues.

Using animals in advertising has become a trend and it’s something us as the consumer see everyday. The nations big brands are launching their new marketing campaigns using cute and funny animals to promote their product or services – this is a very powerful marketing tool.

Animals, particularly baby animals, have very likable traits that make it easy for us to form emotional bonds, successful advertising is done by playing with our emotions and how something makes us feel – we will automatically be drawn to that particular brand if it makes us feel good or more to the point we are made to believe it will make us feel good!

Securing work as an extra with Models Direct

Securing work as an extra in a film, TV show, commercial or stage/musical performance is very exciting! It’s a step in the door to get the opportunity to work in the industry and make the contacts you need to progress.

An extra normally appears in a nonspeaking or nonsinging capacity and usually in the background of a particular scene, some productions require large amounts of extras and other only need a few it completely depends on the project and the overall look.

Models Direct provides extras for many different clients in the industry and recently Molly from the Models Direct assignments team has been organising 50+ extra’s, adults and children for a large period drama film, being shot in Southampton – super exciting!

This week we have Dhruv, Rianna, Saheel, Jake, Sohaila & Zain from Models Direct on set and working with the production team, they will be acting different parts and are super excited to land a role in such a big movie that will be in our cinema’s soon!

Well done from everyone at Models Direct!
