We all know sleep is important. Studies show that adults require a minimum of 6 hours of restful sleep in order to function the following day. But what if you want to do more than just function? This is where your comfort becomes a “Quality of Life” issue. So here are some tips on how you can get the most out of your 40 winks:
1. Learn to Unwind Your Body– A warm bath with some essential oils, epsom salts or bubbles can go a long way to helping your body understand that it is time to rest. Also good? Stretching, Yoga and Meditation.
2. Free Your Mind from all the “to-dos” that could pop into your head while you are trying to sleep. One good way is to jot down all the things you want to remember to do the following day on a piece of paper or into your computer or smartphone. Remember: Your Bedroom is NOT your office!
3. Enjoy a warm beverage like decaffeinated tea or milk. Same principle as the warm bath, only you are relaxing your body from the inside out. Just remember to hit the restroom before you hit the sheets! You don’t want your restful sleep interrupted by Nature’s Call.
4. Got Comfort? Comfort is not a luxury. You need your sleep in order to get through your busy day. But you don’t have to drop a fortune on your mattress to get a blissful night’s sleep. It’s all in how your layer your bedding on top of your mattress that makes the difference between a restful night and a fitful one. It all starts with the right mattress cover and builds from there-check out our online catalog to learn more about our “Seven Layers of Bliss” sleep system.
