Tips to help you fall asleep
Good sleep is vital for your health. Sleep helps your body and mind function properly. Poor sleep can negatively impact many parts of your body, including memory, emotions and learning. Here are some helpful ways to help you fall asleep.
Reduce light disruption:
It is essential to minimise any light exposure to have a good night’s sleep. In particular, blue light from devices such as your mobile phone. Blue light messes with your body’s understanding of time, making it harder for you to fall asleep. We recommend switching all electronic devices off at least 30 minutes before going to bed.
Keep your room cool:
Temperature plays an essential factor in a restful night’s sleep. Your core body temperature changes when you fall asleep, cooling down by 2-3 degrees. If your room is warm you might find it difficult to fall asleep. 100% Bamboo sheets are naturally temperature regulating. Bamboo fibre has micro-gaps that aid ventilation, trapping cool air in the summer, regulating by 2-3 degrees.
Create a schedule and stick to it:
Setting a sleep schedule can help you fall asleep quicker. Your body has a regulatory system or internal clock. Your internal clock knows when you should feel sleepy at night. Waking up and going to bed at the same time can help your internal clock stay on a regular schedule. You should also schedule an hour each night before bed to relax and decompress from the day; doing so will help you fall asleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Avoid taking naps during the day:
Napping during the day can negatively affect your night-time sleep depending on their length. Short naps (30 minutes or less) can improve your alertness and well-being. While naps longer than an hour or two can lead to poor night-time sleep quality and sleep deprivation. If naps affect your night-time sleep, try taking shorter naps earlier in the day or eliminating them.
The quality of your bedding can significantly impact the quality of your sleep. Your pillow can affect your overall comfort and temperature. Finding the perfect pillow for you is crucial. Find out what Bamboo Haus pillow is right for you here.
