We, human beings as a species, spend one third of our lives sleeping, so it’s imperative that we have the best night’s sleep, every night. Yet some people suffer from sleep related illnesses such as insomnia and sleep apnoea which can result in a disturbed sleep. Having the right bed, level of comfort and matching style for your room can help you sleep easier. However there are other things you can do to ensure your sleep is peaceful and undisturbed.
Top tips to get a good night’s rest
Put the phone down
Using any kind of technology at night may be detrimental to your sleeping routine. The blue light from phone screens, TV and computers prevents your brain from producing the sleep hormone melatonin. When our bodies are tired but we prevent our brain from sleeping and it can make you even more tired the next day. So put the phone down at night time.
Keep your room clean
Sleeping in clutter and mess is also bad for sleep because you go to sleep knowing you should really tidy your room. The first thing you see in the morning is disorganisation, which can put you in a depleted mood for the rest of the day. To make sure you wake up in the greatest of moods, clear your clutter the night before, or at least make it more organised if it has nowhere to go.
Get a good bed
Having a good bed can make all the difference when it comes to sleep. If you have musculoskeletal problems, getting the right support while you sleep can help your aches and pains improve. Being comfortable is the most important thing to consider when sleeping. Remember you sleep, on average for 8 hours, that’s 8 hours of being in a singular position, so you need to make sure you’re comfortable.
