Besides a Memory Foam Mattress, Here Are a Few Tips to Help You Sleep
Memory Foam Mattresses and Memory Foam Pillows are designed to help your body and mind revitalize and rejuvenate. If you do not have a memory foam mattress to help relax your body into a deep slumber, here are some tips to help you catch your z’s and remain fresh for the next day.
Stay Nourished. Eating just before you go to sleep or not eating anything at all can cause you to wake up several times during the night. Our metabolism slows down when we sleep so if you eat just before going to sleep, your body will store all the calories in the form of fat instead of burning them off. There should be a gap of at least three hours between dinner and bed time. Sleeping on an empty stomach can also give you a sleepless night as your body needs food. If you feel hungry before going to bed, a light snack will do.
Relax With A Bath. Taking a warm bath around 90 minutes before going to bed also helps get a restful night's sleep. Studies have shown that our body temperature starts dropping about two hours before bedtime in order to help induce drowsiness. This will help in relaxing the body and mind and reduce stress. Also, the bath would raise your body temperature so when you’re in bed there’d be a steeper drop in body temperature giving you a deeper sleep.
Dress Appropriately. Sometimes you might feel cold before going to bed but do not overdress as it is only due the lowering of your body temperature to promote sleep. Get into bed in your normal clothes but if you still feel cold then adjust your room temperature before wearing more clothes.
Stretch Before Bed. Stretching before bedtime increases blood flow and reduces body tension. It also lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and improves posture and blood circulation. But don’t hold any position for more than 30 seconds or you may end up injuring yourself.
Have a good night’s sleep!
