What it Takes to Get a Good Night of Sleep Getting a good night of sleep not only makes you feel more refreshed, but it's actually good for your health in numerous ways. Proper sleep improves the health of your immune system and heart, improves your mood, and can make you live longer. For many people, it can seem like a real challenge to fall asleep within a reasonable amount of time and stay asleep. With proper comfort and a calming bedtime ritual, your chance of having a blissful night of sleep will increase. Have a Good Mattress If you have trouble sleeping or wake up with pains all throughout your body, you might need a new mattress. Other signs that it's time for a new mattress include lumps in the mattress, sneezing when you're trying to sleep, you can't get comfortable, or it takes you forever to fall asleep. Make a list of what you're looking for before you begin comparing different mattresses and set a budget. Try out different mattresses if possible to know ahead of time what the mattress will feel like when you lay down. Check out Bedding Mart for a wide variety of mattresses, including firm, plush, pillow top, memory foam, adjustable beds, and more. Pay Attention to Internal Clock Your body has an internal clock in it that can tell you exactly how to take care of yourself properly. Many people ignore signs from their internal clock because they're so used to doing things their way. Your body might require you to go to bed earlier so you can be an early riser, but when you're used to going to bed late it can seem like a challenge to start sleeping at an earlier time. Listen to cues from your body to know the right time to lay down for the evening and you'll start to notice an improved quality of life. Keep Bedroom Neat and Organized A messy and unorganized room can negatively impact your sleep. Clutter can make you distracted, stressed, and increase stimuli, making it difficult to fall asleep. Messy rooms can make you constantly worry about when you'll have time to tidy up rather than becoming relaxed enough to sleep. Instead of putting off cleaning your bedroom, just start doing it. There probably will never be the perfect time to clean, so make an effort to clean and organize as soon as possible and keep it that way. Exercise Early Exercise is one of the best things you can do to improve your help, however, if you exercise too close to bedtime it can make it hard for you to fall asleep. It's recommended to exercise as early as possible and not within four hours of bedtime. Exercise increases adrenaline, resulting in you feeling more alert and energized. If nighttime is the only time for you to work out, end your routine with a series of calming stretches and relaxation techniques to prepare your body for sleep. Set a Bedtime Schedule and Stick to It It's easy to plan to go to bed at a certain time and then going to bed much later than planned. It's good to get your body on the same sleep schedule every day so you can sleep more soundly. Your body needs you to get enough sleep so it can function properly. Not getting enough sleep can harm your health and leave you feeling exhausted all the time. Pay attention to clues your body gives you and try to stick to the same schedule every night, even on the weekends. Invest in a quality mattress that offers you proper support and comfort for a good night of sleep.
