Secrets to goodnight Sleeps (tips on Gbedustreet)

by Nov 6, 2020Uncategorized

Good sleep is a foundation for good health and a happier frame of mind. Set the stage for a restful night, starting in the morning and continuing into the early evening.

How nice if we could all be “morning people,” and wake up every day feeling refreshed, alert, and hopeful … ready to take on the world … What’s that? Oh, maybe that’s NOT how we feel every day?

And, we’re not alone. According to research, almost a third of us drag ourselves out of bed in the morning because we haven’t gotten enough good-quality sleep at night, which means we’re not feeling as great as we could be during the day.

Do you need to get better sleep?

If you’re waking up tired and fuzzy-headed, it can be harder to remember things, like where you left the keys when you’re rushing to get out the door, or maybe at work, you don’t feel as focused or productive as you could be.

Being tired throws your hunger hormones out of whack, and a sleepy brain loses executive function, so it’s harder to make healthy choices. What that means: when you hit a wall late in the afternoon you’re more apt to grab a candy bar, a bag of chips, or other sugary or salty snacks that would not get a nutritionist’s stamp of approval.

Not surprisingly, by the time you get home you may be feeling irritable or cranky, and a little wound up. Not the best state of mind for peacefully drifting off a few hours later.

To feel your best during the day, you need to sleep well at night. Unfortunately, there’s no magic wand you can wave to make that happen. But there are some simple steps you can take to help you sleep better. Here are some things to consider if you want to get better sleep.

5 tips to create a restful environment for a good night’s sleep

Your bedroom should feel like a sleep oasis — stress and distraction-free. While creating the right environment is, to a certain extent, a matter of personal preference, sleep experts offer these sleep hygiene suggestions that are backed by science.

  1. The ideal room for sleep is cool and dark

Most experts agree that the sweet spot for temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. According to a National Sleep Foundation poll, some people say the darker the room the better. 65% of people use shades, curtains, or blinds to block unwanted light.

  1. Peace and quiet make for bedroom bliss.

74% percent of people think that quiet is crucial for getting good sleep. That said, many people rely on “white noise” or some type of ambient sound to help mask disruptive noises like car horns or highway traffic. You can also use a fan (which will do double duty, keeping your room cool) or try one of the many soothing sleepcasts or some sleep musicfrom the Sleep experience in the Headspace app. Sleepcasts run about 45 minutes and can help create a relaxing, peaceful environment for sleep.

  1. Choose the bedding (and sleep position) that’s best for you.

A comfortable mattress and pillows are essential for good sleep, but whether they’re soft or firm is up to you. The pillow you choose may depend on your preferred sleep position. If you’re a side sleeper (as most people are), your pillow should comfortably support your head, neck, and ear as well as your shoulder. People who sleep on their backs should consider a thinner pillow to limit stress on the neck.

  1. Space and clean your bedroom.

If your bed feels dreamy but your room is a mess, you could be at a higher risk for sleep problems. A study presented at the June 2015 SLEEP conference in Seattle suggests that those surrounded by clutter were more likely to have a sleep disorder. What your eyes see when you walk into a room can influence whether or not you’ll have an easy time falling asleep. So, as many of our parents used to say, clean up your room!

  1. Pick the perfect pillow for you.

Pillow fill is important to consider if you suffer from allergies. Fills vary from natural choices like feathers to synthetics like rayon, foam, or latex. Look for pillows that are hypoallergenic to lessen the chance of nighttime congestion and sniffles that can keep you awake.
