We all know sleep is extremely important for our overall health and a good bedtime routine can be key to maintaining sleep quality.
As we move into Autumn, now is a great time to review your current routine to give you the best chance of a good night’s sleep. Here are three areas to consider to set you up for a sound night.
A good night’s sleep starts long before you’ve gotten into bed. It begins with the right sleeping environment, and what better place to start than with your mattress. We spend half our lives in bed, so investing in the right mattress for you is key. Our Brick mattress is a great option for a supportive night’s sleep with its extra-durable spring system, multiple layers of luxury filling and skin safe technology. The Brick heavy-duty mattress can be customised to your preferred comfort level with our Airflow mattress topper, tailoring the firmness while ensuring you're supported throughout the night.
A heavy-duty mattress such as this is complemented well with a stylish frame such as our Wyoming Bed, giving you a comfortable, practical and stylish sleep setup. Yet, keeping your bedroom cool will help you drift off peacefully too - around 65 degrees is optimal. Finish this off with blackout blinds and you have the winning combination for a peaceful slumber.
Taking time to wind down before bed can get you into the right headspace for a restful night. All electronics should be switched off 1-2 hours before bedtime and if possible, kept outside of the bedroom. Slower, more mindful activities such as reading, taking a bath or journaling may help you to switch off and relax.
Simple tasks before heading to bed, such as brushing your teeth and putting your clothes away, are not only great practice but when done regularly also act as a cue to let your body know it’s time to get some rest.
A key factor in maintaining good sleep quality is consistency. Going to bed at roughly the same time every night and waking up at a similar time every morning, including weekends, will have you drifting off quicker and waking up feeling more refreshed. Investing in your sleep quality with Reinforced Beds, winding down before bedtime and keeping a consistent routine will give you a great foundation for a good night’s sleep.
