The New Year is always the best time to reset and focus on new goals. If your resolutions are to be healthier and happier, you may not realize that sleep is vital in obtaining your goals. Don’t let a lack of sleep stop you from being your ultimate best in 2018. Check out these tips for getting more sleep this year.
Get fitted for the right mattress.
It takes less than five minutes of your time to have an incredible night’s rest this year. At Factory Mattress, our exclusive RIGHTfit technology scientifically measures your body’s pressure points and structure to inform you of the proper amount of support you need. Our sales associates will assist you in finding your comfort level and matching you up with mattresses that the technology recommends based on the level of support you need.
Focus on “me time” and winding down.
Take time each night to wind down after a long day and don’t feel bad about having time for yourself. Try something relaxing such as yoga, stretching, taking a bath, or reading a book. You will fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer when your mind is turned off and you are in a relaxed state. Forget about the stress from work or fighting with your kids about brushing their teeth or getting ready for school.
Turn off devices and TVs.
One of the biggest factors disrupting our sleep is the use of our mobile devices, tablets, and TV screens. Watching TV or scrolling through your social media accounts before bed affect the release of melatonin that helps you fall asleep. Catch up on shows or emails at least two hours before you go to bed.
We don’t recommend working our right before bed, but we do want you to get some exercise during the day. Hit the gym or go for a walk at least three to four hours before you go to bed. Timing is key. If you exercise three to four hours before bedtime, your core body temperature will start to decrease from being heated and you will sleep better.
Make your bedroom a sleeping sanctuary.
Your bedroom plays an important part in getting sleep. Your space should be relaxing, dark, and cool. Blackout curtains, a ceiling fan, and comfortable bedding are things you need in your room. The bedroom is made for sleeping so don’t work, eat, or watch TV there.
Have a fantastic year and visit us to check out our exclusive RIGHTfit technology. You’ll be sleeping better and your 2018 will be the best year yet!
