Sleeping is a time for your body to repair itself, and a good night’s sleep can be the difference between feeling tired and sore or energized and refreshed. Here are five tips to help you sleep better.
Create a Restful Environment
Design your sleeping environment in such a way that it will promote good sleep by controlling factors like light, sound, and temperature. Cool, dark, and quiet are the best combination for good sleep. Use an eye-mask and/or earplugs if you cannot control light and sound levels in the room.
Choosing the Right Mattress Can Help You Sleep Better
We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, so the importance of a good mattress is hard to overstate. A mattress should be comfortable and provide ample support to keep your neck and spine in proper alignment while you sleep. Consider a latex mattress or a foam mattress to provide support and minimize disruptive movement.
Try a New Bed Pillow
Almost as important to sleeping well as a good mattress is using a good bed pillow. Your pillow contributes to keeping your neck and spine aligned and is a key part of sleeping well. Choose a pillow suited to your preferred sleep position.
Relax Before Bed
Doing something to help you relax before bed helps your body prepare to sleep. Deep breathing and other relaxation techniques are great ways to help you let go of the stress of the day and unwind. A hot bath, aromatherapy, chamomile tea, and progressive muscle relaxation are also good relaxation techniques to try.
Use Sleep Aids to Increase Your Comfort Level
Foam sleep aids can help make you more comfortable and position your body correctly for a good night’s sleep. Knee wedges take pressure off the lower back and sleeping wedges can be used to keep your body elevated during the night to reduce acid reflux.
