Factory Mattress and Bedroom wants you to get the best night’s sleep and knows that even owning one of our quality mattresses may not always do the trick. Millions of Americans suffer from not getting enough sleep for various reasons such as hectic work schedules, sleeping disorders, stress, etc. We’ve compiled a list of habits to avoid to assure that you get the sleep you deserve.
1. Avoid Late Night Snacks
This can negatively disrupt your sleep pattern because the stomach acid from eating can accumulate and can inch up your throat while you’re laying down.
2. Avoid Any Type of Stimulant
This may seem like an obvious solution, but even having a cigarette or coffee just 3 hours before bedtime can make it extremely difficult to fall asleep until it wears out of your system. Make sure you are aware of what foods contain caffeine, like chocolate. Trying drinking a nice tea before bed that’s caffeine free to help you relax.
3. Avoid Technology
We live in a digital world. It’s so easy to stay plugged in and engaged in what’s happening in the world around you. However all of these devices have harsh light that can upset your brain’s circadian rhythm. 30 minutes before you go to sleep, try reading an engaging book, coloring, or completing a puzzle. Your brain and eyes will thank you for taking a break from the harsh screen. Many of us also use cell phones as an alarm–try putting your phone in another place in the room. This will help you avoid the temptation of surfing Facebook or Twitter, and it will also help you avoid hitting snooze so easily in the morning.
4. Regulate Your Sleep Hours
It can be hard to stick to a regular sleeping schedule, but your body will thank you. This is one of the most important practices you can adopt to regulate your sleep cycle. Depriving yourself of sleep during the week and then binging on it during the weekend does more harm than good. Give your body the sleep it deserves!
