Many adults would agree that it is important to have a bedtime routine for children in order to keep them on a schedule. These same adults, however, do not usually adhere to a routine for themselves to ensure they get proper rest.
One super easy routine to implement is not going to bed on an empty stomach or hungry. For many this is absolutely not a problem, but for a few this could be the source of not getting enough sleep. Be careful though, eating a large meal right before bed can also cause problems such as heartburn, and other digestive issues. In the event you have consumed a large amount of food right before bedtime (sometimes it just can’t be helped), think about using a better quality pillow for better sleep. The Double Airflow pillow features an air-infused memory foam with multiple levels of ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. The core of this pillow has been scientifically designed with visco foam and air channels while the ventilated mesh trim allows air to flow freely so your head stays cooler. Although that large turkey dinner right before bed may have left you feeling heavy and uncomfortably warm, this pillow will help keep you cool and comfortable enough for restful sleep.
Another routine to consider is to take 15 minutes to prep for the next day. Simple tasks such as getting dishes out of the sink and into a dishwasher, laying out your clothes for the next day, and making your lunch for work, may cut down on the stress you have at night. This stress may not be recognized by you, but it often will keep you from falling asleep as fast as you would if these tasks had been completed before hitting the sheets.
A third way to achieve better sleep is a no-brainer. Turn off your screens, especially email, news, and social media. Checking your work email one last time before bed may trigger your mind into alertness instead of resting mode. This is the same for scrolling through news and social media. Looking over the news and social media tends to signal the brain to start thinking instead of relaxing. Sometimes not viewing media right before getting some shut-eye is impossible. To help you get comfortable after viewing screens, make sure you have a cozy sleeping environment. The Elegance mattress has thoroughly tested memory foam helps eliminate nervous tension caused from common head, neck, and shoulder pain, which frequently keeps you awake and unrested while the cooling gel helps you fall asleep and stay temperature-neutral throughout the night. If a new mattress isn’t in your budget, think about adding a memory foam mattress topper to your current bed. The Gel Fusion mattress topper utilizes Gelcare technology to ensure that you sleep comfortably throughout the night without waking from overheating.
Figuring out which nightly routine will work best for you may take some thought. The above examples are common obstacles that get in the way of adults getting the healthy sleep they need. Finding the best routine to get the best rest possible can be achieved by merely making the time to ensure you can turn your mind off. Having the proper bedding to be instantly comfortable only aids in getting the quality sleep you crave.
