Winter can be a tough time for those who struggle to sleep. When the clocks go back, many people's sleep cycles are thrown out of order, and the longer nights can make it difficult to feel settled. Here are a few ways to sleep a little easier this Winter.
Revise your sleep schedule
Now that we have an extra hour in the mornings, why not try a new sleep routine? Make the most of the brighter mornings by setting your alarm earlier, and in the evenings, go to bed earlier than you usually would. Even night-owls will see a positive change by taking an extra hour to rest each night. The effects of these changes won't happen overnight, but soon you will feel better, more energised, and ready to take on the day. Rearranging or changing up your bedroom space and furniture will help you to feel refreshed.
Revamp your relaxation station
Each season brings its challenges - in the Winter the sudden drop in temperature can make it difficult to get to sleep. It may be time to rethink your current mattress and bedspread. Experiment with the firmness of your mattress - you may find that your needs or preferences have changed. Invest in warm, heavy-duty coverings to ensure warmth and comfort. If you like an extra-firm base to settle down, why not try our Brick mattress? Built with over 1000 springs in our pocketed spring unit, this mattress is perfect for those who enjoy a solid foundation for a restful night's sleep. If you want a softer experience but still enjoy a firmer base, our Air Flow mattress topper is guaranteed to give you the best of both worlds. It will keep you cool and dry all night, no matter how cosy you like your covers.
Light up your life
A comfy bed runs the risk of not wanting to leave it. Staying in bed too long can have a negative impact on your sleep routine and general wellbeing, so try incorporating light into your morning and evening routines. Letting in natural light or using a sunlamp in the mornings will help you to rise naturally. Try using warm-toned light bulbs in the evenings. Keeping your bedroom well-lit and warm-looking before bedtime will emulate the sunset, and help you sleep easily.
