6 Tips: How to Get a Better Sleep
Arianna Huffington said it best when she said ‘Everything you do, you’ll do better with a good night’s sleep.’ Our quality of sleep impacts our health, job performance, relationships, and our happiness. So how do you get a better sleep? That part might need a little coaching. With that in mind, we’re here to help you get your best sleep yet!
1. Keep your sleep to a schedule
Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day helps regulate your body’s internal clock. This includes weekends! By keeping to a schedule, you’ll be fall asleep quicker and stay asleep through the night.
2. Begin a relaxing bedtime ritual
A pre-bed routine done without bright lights (including your cellphones and tablets) helps tell your body when it’s ready to go to sleep. Avoid activities that cause excitement, stress or anxiety which make it difficult to have a restful sleep. Something relaxing will help you get you in the right mindset to fall into a deep sleep.
3. Avoid napping, especially in the afternoon
This is key for those who have trouble sleeping. Power napping may help you get through a day, but it can affect your ability to fall asleep come bedtime. Eliminating even the shortest of catnap will help your sleep in the long run.
4. Exercise daily
As little as 10 minutes of aerobic exercise can dramatically improve the quality of your sleep. Not only does physical activity help reduce stress, but it may actually help regulate your sleep cycle. Working out in natural sunlight and fresh air is especially helpful!
5. Design a space for sleeping and look forward to sleeping with luxurious sheets
Your bedroom is intended for sleep, and it should be designed as such. Keep the temperature slightly cooler than the rest of your home, ensure noise is to a minimum, prevent as much light as possible from entering the room at night, and design a bed you can’t wait to crawl into. 100% Egyptian cotton, velvety smooth luxury sheets such as our Pearl Egyptian Cotton Sateen Bedding or our breathable, 100% organic cotton Seth Bedding will have you looking forward to catching some zzz’s. None of this means sacrificing a beautiful space, and we can help you with that!
6. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows
Reducing allergens and ensuring the right support will make a big difference in your sleep quality. Your mattress has a lifespan of about 9 to 10 years. Comfortable, fresh pillows, like our hypoallergenic high-quality down pillows in differing firmness, help make the room more attractive and comfortable, thus inviting for sleep.
