Research suggest that we just don’t get enough sleep each night and that this phenomenon is affecting our global health. We could all do with a better night’s sleep, so we asked our friends from Sealy to share some advice to help us achieve a peaceful night under the covers.
Try unwinding and eliminating stress before going to bed. Turning in tense leads to tossing and turning. Why not take a warm bath, listen to calming music, or read a good book.
Caffeine stimulates, and is the last thing you want in your system when you’re trying to sleep. If you’re going to have caffeine in the evening, have it early, or try decaf coffee.
Make the most of your mattress
You spend a 1/3 of your life in your bed, therefore a quality mattress and sprung foundation is one of the most cost-effective purchases you can make.
Silence the snoring
Snoring keeps the partner awake and interrupts the sleep of the snorer.
Try using additional pillows to raise the head.
Darkness isn’t just for mushrooms
Your body will get more rest if you sleep in the dark. Make sure your curtains block out most of the light.
Basics for backs
We are all susceptible to back pain. Always be aware of your posture during the day. Sit up straight and stand up straight.
A Sealy mattress will go a long way towards improving your sleep.
Falling asleep to the gentle sounds of music or the gentle hum of a fan, humidifier or air conditioner, can improve the quality of sleep
Turn off the TV
Keep technology out of your bedroom.
