You won’t need to count sheep anymore.
When people get enough rest, their emotional, mental, and physical well-being will improve. Besides, trying to get through the day without enough sleep will affect your decision-making and make you unproductive.
Good quality sleep isn’t all about how long you’re in dreamland. It’s also about your environment. But creating an environment that will allow you to sleep better can be difficult. You might even think using your cell phone can help you doze off, but it does the opposite.
But don’t worry; it’s never too late to get your sleeping habits back on track. These three tricks from sleep expert Sealy Posturepedic® will help you sleep well in no time.
Invest in a good mattress
First on the list is what you sleep on. Let’s be real. A great-quality mattress is equal to a night of great sleep. Comfort and support are the most important factors when choosing a mattress.
Is your mattress causing muscle pain and uncomfortable tossing and turning? Is there uneven spinal support due to sagging? If you answered yes to these questions, then it might be time to consider switching mattresses.
A relaxing environment will help you sleep well
It’s essential to create a relaxing environment to help you sleep well. Experts recommend limiting bed activities to resting and sleeping. For these to happen, going to bed should be something one looks forward to at the end of the day.
Aside from making your bed comfortable and inviting, you can try dimming the light or completely turning it off. It depends on whatever you want. The darkness of your room signals your brain that it’s time to sleep.
You can also use aromatherapy sticks to calm your senses. Another thing you can do would be to diffuse essential oils in your room. The right oil can help relax the body and mind so you can doze off. Lavender Oil has been used by many to achieve that relaxing atmosphere.
Aim for ‘Zero-G’
It’s fun to think about zero gravity (or Zero-G) as an ideal sleeping position that would make you feel like “floating” because of how comfortable it is. But it’s possible to do it here on earth, too.
All you have to do is lie flat on your back, then raise your head and feet, leaving your feet slightly higher. This position relieves pressure on your back and neck. It also makes you feel like you’re weightless, making it easy for you to fall and stay asleep.
This position can make breathing easier for people with allergies, respiratory conditions, and even those with the common cold. It also lessens pressure on the heart and promotes better circulation.
The easiest way to get into this position is with an adjustable bed. Compared to flat mattresses, adjustable beds allow inclination adjustments for the head and feet. If you snore or are prone to acid reflux or GERD, consider getting an adjustable bed since this sleeping position prevents those conditions.
